2. Get more sleep
When an adult makes this goal, usually it's to try and edge closer to 7 or 8 hours of sleep. For my baby, more sleep looks like 12 solid hours at night, plus two 2-hour naps during the day. OK that's a lot of sleep (but mama would love every second of it).
Considering my first two children, I know this is a total pipe dream. My children will keep a pacifier as long as I let them, which is about three years. But I can wish for a child who would just give it up of her own accord without disrupting anyone's sleep.
4. Strengthen relationships
Specifically with me, your mom who loves you. And preferably strengthen that bond by more snuggling. I can't ever get enough.
It would be lovely to not have to give you a sponge bath after every meal. Is that so much to ask? Also, if you'd like to just tell me when you're done instead of demonstrating it by throwing all your food on the floor, it would be greatly appreciated (especially by your dad, who is generally the one to clean up 50 tiny bits of banana after dinner).
