hello may mamas!
Yay for your hubby coming home soon Katie! I can only imagine how exciting that must be.
We are officially moving out of our apartment in a month, into my MIL's (sigh thought I'd never have to live there again) for 5 months then when our apartment is done being built at my mom's house we will be living in Maine! I am so incredibly excited and ready for this huge change in our lives. We have been on Cape Cod for over 5 years and I am ready to move back to the place I love best, and DH is really excited too which always helps. My mom is literally building us a 2 floor huge apartment in the unfinished part of her house. We are going to have chickens and a garden and the kind of life that I want Della to be able to experience as a young child so this is a huge huge deal!!
Sorry I'm just so excited I have to brag about it
In baby land, Della will be 9 months in exactly a week and still no real words yet, just lots of dadadada and babababas. She also finally figured out how to pick up food and instead of just drop it, actually put it in her mouth so that is helpful in the feeding department. She has been cruising all over the place and is starting to be able to stand on her own for up to about 6 seconds. I don't know about other babies in our little group but I knew from day 1 she was really ahead of the curve but of course much less verbal than a lot of babies her age. It must be like that for a lot of babies though right? Super verbal and maybe not physical or the other way around?
I hope everyone has a wonderful March. I am going stir crazy and am ready to be outside a lot again. It snowed last night just as a reminder that we still can't be out playing really but soon! Oh yeah Della's sleep has suddenly become terrible, the dreaded 9 month sleep regression I am thinking. It literally takes over an hour to get her to sleep each night even though she's exhausted. I miss the days of easy sleep but some day I know they will come back!
