Dylan Sage Seven Months
To be perfectly honest, we are coming off of some incredibly rough weeks. I started a new job, Dylan started waking up every morning between 1:45 and 3; she teethed, and then she got a stomach virus.
I feel like we were just hit with it all at once and I am exhausted. I may or may not have cried in the bathroom the other day. This month really tested my inner planner and rigid system-oriented personality. It was hard, really hard.
I leaned on my mom friends as much as I could (a huge shout out to Pam for talking me off the ledge), but when there is no right answer, I feel like it just makes everything worse.
On the bright and shiny side she's still giving us giggles and smiles and lots of love so it isn't all bad.
Dylan can officially sit on her own. She is now trying to pull herself up into the seated position. Her little baby crunches crack me up.
She is also a master scooter. While she was my assistant this last week, she would decide she was over being in the office and just head on out.
She has also adopted the butt in the air sleep position. I don't know how normal it is, but I am pretty certain that Dylan loves pillows and blankets. During our special sleep overs she wanted to be laying on a pillow and I could have been dreaming, but I swear she pulled the blanket up to tuck herself in. I could have also been delirious.
We started brushing her teeth, and her toothbrush is her new best friend. She gets so excited when she sees it. Sometimes she uses it as a conductor baton.
We broke out the exersaucer to serve as a fun-containment system. She was so thrilled with it. Her excitement laughter is contagious.
She did swimmingly on her first plane ride and easily slept in the pack n play. I came back from our weekend in Jacksonville confident that we could start traveling again. Now to just find a place that we can explore during the day....
And the most exciting thing that happened this month, she said "momma" on my birthday, no less! My heart melted.
