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!
