It's Finally 2018!

it's finally 2018, toddler, Christmas presents, gift wrap,

Happy New Year! It is finally 2018! I am happy to close the book on 2017 and crack into a new calendar for a fresh start. I want to read more, exercise more, drink more water, blog more...and to just to give the word less a little use, I want to feel stressed LESS.

If you are not a consistent follower over on YouTube then you may be a bit out of the loop on some of the changes over there. I have decided to give the ManfridaTV channel a rest and move any future vlogs over to the Alice Manfrida channel. I will still be doing family vlogs from time to time, but they will be fewer and farther between. All of my content, except bookish videos, will be up on that main channel. I will still be putting videos up on the girlofyarn booktube channel and hopefully I can dedicate a little more energy over there.

Anyway, I thought I'd start this year's blog content off by looking back - all the way back to Christmas a couple of weeks ago! Ha! I vlogged on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so if you haven't already seen that video then you can see it HERE.

My first video of 2018 was a New Year's Goals video. I checked in with the goals I made for 2017 and set some new intentions for the year ahead. If you want to see that video click HERE.

I hope that the first week of the new year is going well for you. Thanks reading and watching!

Harold At 15 Months

Harold At 15 months, baby, toddler

Harold is 15 months old! He is so fun to play with and he's really trying to have conversations with us. He is "talking" constantly and he even has a few words comprehensible to the rest of us. He can say "no" of course but it's actually very helpful because he uses it correctly and it helps us to figure out what he actually wants or doesn't want. He loves to go outside and move his body. This kid is strong and sturdy and is steadily becoming an expert climber. He's still very lovey and likes to share toys and snacks with us. We get lots of snuggles. He still nurses a few times throughout the day and while we are getting a bit more sleep as he occasionally sleeps through the night, most nights he wakes a couple times and sleeps the majority of it in our bed with us. We aren't complaining though because we know he won't be little forever and we're soaking it up while we can. :)
