I go through periods in my life (maybe you do too) where I am desperately looking for ways to spice it up, be spontaneous, do things out of the ordinary. Then there are times like these, where I hit a good rhythm and am happy about it.
I feel like Kevin and I have finally found a good rhythm to our life with Sophie. She’s changing quickly, that’s for sure, but it’s not so quickly that our lives are thrown for a loop. Sophie and I spend our mornings together, then she goes to daycare, and I go to work. We all join up at home later, Kevin and I make dinner, watch Wheel and Jeopardy, play with Sophie, Sophie goes to bed, Kev and I finish out the evening chatting, playing on our computers, or playing cards. There’s a nice rhythm to our lives, and while some may find it boring I find it very comforting to know that tomorrow holds for me and for us.
It’s so exciting watching Sophie change. Eight months ago she was yet to be born, and here she is today, able to clap her hands, laugh and play, and army crawl all the way to her room. It’s incredible. I know I’ve been saying it for awhile but she is SO close to crawling. I watch her and I expect her just to take off at any minute. We’ve also had some moderate success with drinking from a sippy cup. I got a nuby brand one with a soft spout (almost like a bottle nipple) and she really likes it. She’ll drink from it if I help her tip it up. I think she’ll get the hang of it on her own in no time.
Here’s a few pictures just for fun. Enjoy!
