Growing Up...and Falling Down

J.D. learned to sit up this week! It makes me feel like he is so big! This is one of my favorite changes babies make because it makes them look and feel so much bigger and helps them have a new independence. J.D. has really enjoyed being upright this week, and has just sat and played with toys by himself so much.

But the increased muscle strength has been problematic too. Yesterday, I went to the utility room to do a load of laundry. I had buckled J.D. in the swing for him to take a nap (which is where he enjoys taking a lot of his naps). He was swinging along and then started crying. I let him cry for a couple of minutes while I finished up in the laundry room. Should have gone in sooner. When I came back in, J.D. wasn't in the swing. He had apparently sat himself up and then fallen out onto the floor, and his foot was still stuck up in the strap of the swing. I could NOT have felt worse!!! Poor little guy got lots and lots of hugs and kisses after that.


That mean ole' swing.

Oh, I hate moments like that. It's fun to be proud of new things learned, but they bring on all new problems. I remember one day when we had Shaye up on the table in her Bumbo, and we found out that she had figured out how to push and twist her way out over the top. We caught her by the leg before she fell off the table entirely! I'm glad he was just shook up. And way to go Big Boy on the sitting; he appears to have very good posture. : )

He is so cute!! I miss you! Maybe after next Friday I can actually take a breath and catch up! I'm going to look at more houses tomorrow so hopefully we'll find the one!

If it makes you feel better...Brooks fell off a changing table and out of a shopping cart on my watch. Great mommy moments!
