Coming up on 9 months for DS and this is such an exciting time. I say that every month actually, but each month gets even more amazing! We've got army crawling, not quite crawling on all fours and he loves to pull up to standing. He plays with any toy that has buttons, including things that are not toys with buttons like my cell phone. We are loving all kinds of food. DH fed him squid last night and I got a little nervous, but no one in my family has ever had a shellfish allergy so probably don't need to worry, and DS loved it. We are back into a good sleep phase also, hoping that will last a while.
To the above posters - that is annoying that the grandparents won't take time for a visit. We live in Brasil, my parents live in the United States and my DH's parents live in England. We've had 2 visits from my parents so far, and 3 from DH's and we live thousands of miles away! Plus we've flown to visit both of them twice to the US, once to England, and we are going back to England in July, and my mom is coming to us in a few weeks. Plus we use skype video to show off the grandson in between visits.
I don't blog but I've thought about writing a travel blog on traveling with babies. We do a lot of that since we are so far away from our families, plus we like to go on vacation to see places.
Is anyone else feeling like they are ready for another, or trying for another? DH and I are starting to feel like we are ready to just dive in and see what happens.
Britt--so cute!! You should be so proud!
Amy-MIL didn't make time for us when we lived close by. Would leave early from holidays bc-"I have things to do" Always off with her boyfriend or just couldn't stay in one place. Doesn't make time for her daughter either but is willing to help out anybody else. Dh's brothers family basically cut her out or really limited there time with her so she tries to spend as much time as possible with them. Just weird. But now that we are so far away she basically cries about missing us. I don't care either way bc our life is so less stressful.
Naomi--Travel without diapers I wonder what that is like.
There is part of me that wants another--I have said it before but then there is part of me that wants to be able to simply get in and out of a car in seconds
