Starting May 1, this website limits basic members to 15 videos and since having more than 15 videos is not worth $50 a year to us, I will be deleting some over the next few days. So if you are bored and want to take a trip down Himan Baby Memory Lane, watch the videos now :)
This is a busy month for us. We visited Aunt Sherry and Uncle Monkey in Kentucky. Wyatt got to play lots with his cousin Christopher. We visited The Breaks which was neat because I hadn''t seen them since I was a young teen. I learned I am more afraid of heights as an adult and also that I am more carsick the older I get.
Bethany is now walking while holding onto furniture and can almost walk behind push toys. She pushes her infant/toddler rocking seat all over the living room and walks behind it. She loves to stand but can''t figure out how to get down yet so she''s had some bumps, scrapes, and bruises. Wyatt and Bethany interact a LOT now. He is very good at entertaining her which is a huge help for Mommy. Wyatt and Bethany sing "Old McDonald" with us. Wyatt sings the "E-I-E-I-O" part and Bethany does an amazing job at imitating that phrase. Those two kids are a cute pair!
Hooray, hooray! Bethany is growing! She is now actually ON the percentile chart for length which is a huge relief because it means that for now she doesn’t need to have testing done. Phew! The chart starts at 5th percentile and that is exactly where she is on it. She is now 26 inches tall and weighs 17 pounds. The doctor said "we''ll see her next at 1 year old"! Wow! She''s almost one year old!! She''s been standing up on her own now and sometimes pulls up on things that are not stable- which leads to falls and bumps and bruises.
Wyatt bosses her around a lot now that she can sort-of follow his directions. He likes for her to play with him in his climber playhouse and also in his bedroom. He coaxes her in there by saying “here sissy, here sissy”. The other day I caught him trying to drag her into his room by her shirt! I guess she wasn’t moving fast enough for him… I''ve got my hands full!
