Let them be little....



Cesalie is a little bit over 7 months now. She is scooting on her belly across the floor and getting up on her knees and rocking back and forth. She is holding her own bottle(which is a huge time saver for me during the morning rush). She is making a lot of new sounds, mostly da-da, ma-ma and la-la. Today was the first time she got up on her hands and knees and started rocking. I said to Vince, ya know, I don't really even know what she is suppose to be doing developmentally at this age. When Karlie was born, I read all the books and charts and made sure she was on schedule. When Rylie was born, I did too. Rylie was right on target with her milestones up until around 6 months. Then she started taking much longer to develop certain skills. I had to stop stressing and just let Rylie be Rylie and develop at her own pace, but still help her in anyway I could. And I guess this attitude just carried in to Cesalie. Honestly, I really don't know exactly what Cesalie should be doing, but I know she is doing fine, except aren't 7 month old babies suppose to take naps and shouldn't they be in their own rooms by now? That is a whole other story. lol!

I know I have a long road ahead of me with Rylie. We are wrapping up the potty training, she is probably going to kindergarten in the fall. I know things are going to be hard. But for now she is only 5, Cesalie is just a baby, Karlie is only 9 and the most important thing right now is that they have fun and know they are loved.

I started this post as a Cesalie Update , it's funny where my thoughts take me when I start "blogging". So, that is why I only posted a picture of Cesalie. Gosh, she is too cute!

I think you're on the right track. Just enjoy them. Diva didn't crawl till 8 months. She was so lazy. She is such a cutie.

I wish I had that outlook with Preston. I was too worried about what he was and was not doing. More concerned than with my other two kids. But now he is 13 1/2 months and still isn't walking, but I've realized that he likes taking his time. It's more laziness with him than not being able to do these things. The child will still insist on us holding his bottle if we allow him to.
