Leap 7

Wonder Weeks is an app I haven’t opened in a long time. I haven’t thought about leaps in a long time either. I don’t remember the last couple of leaps, so I don’t think they were too bad. Leap 3 or 4 was the worst for us.

But suddenly Baby J has been acting strangely. For example I popped into the living room for a second after I take a shower. Baby J sees me and then gets very upset when I go back into the powder room to dry my hair. She’s definitely been much more clingy, constantly saying “nai nai” (which it seems what she’s calling me nowadays since she stopped saying “mama”) when I go out of sight. This past week in particular, it looks like a tornado blew through any rooms she’s been in more than usual.

I thought she was just getting over the jet lag, but I checked the app and it looks like we’re in the middle of a leap. No wonder!  Ever since we’ve gotten back, she’s had to fuss herself to sleep at bedtime. She gets so mad when I put her down even though she’s never been one for being held in the first place. She’s even been making trying to go out for walks very difficult by clinging to me when I’m trying to get us ready, even though she really wants to go.

And on top of all of this, I have a cold again! Hopefully I can hold on until this storm passes.
