8 month update

Well, this update is long overdue as we are fast approaching the 8.5 month mark.

 This month, Wyatt…

  • Is STILL in the majorly distracted phase
  • Is still co-sleeping, breastfeeding and in cloth diapers. We took disposables on our trip to Ontario and found the Seventh Generation brand worked for us.
  • Started crawling on all fours, pulling himself to standing without assistance and even climbed up a few stairs
  • Is eating like a champ
  • has 4 teeth – 2 top, 2 bottom with another 2 top attempting to poke through. Yes, he got 3 teeth in 1.5 months. 
  • Started using his “big boy” car seat. He hates it less than the bucket seat. We have the Clek Fllo.
  • Took his first plane ride to Toronto to see Grandma and Grandpa
  • Went to a Blue Jay’s game
  • Had his first swim in Lake of the Bays, Ontario
  • Spent 3 hours with a babysitter that wasn’t a relative

This past month, Mommy…

  • Has been struggling with anxiety. It’s been a month of reflection, contemplation, deciding what I want in life – all things that cause my brain to go into overdrive. Walking remains very therapeutic, along with ensuring I get some “me” time after Wyatt goes to sleep.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Grandma and Grandpa’s cottage. It truly felt like a much needed vacation.  We even got to take our first “date” without Wyatt – a kayak ride on the lake
  • Reunited with her bestie after way too much time apart
  • Realized that the “mobility” phase – crawling, standing, walking – is much harder for me than the newborn phase. It’s forced me to refocus my attention on Wyatt and re-prioritize what really needs to get done when he’s awake.
  • Received some major career news (which I will share more about when the time is right)
  • Chose a daycare for Wyatt – again, more details to come…
  • Spent too much time away from her blog…  but I’M BACK! 🙂

  1. So glad you’re back! Sounds like things have been going pretty well, aside from the anxiety issue. I’m eager to hear about this career news though! I’m also glad to hear that you had a good vacation. When I was little my family would go up to Gull Lake in Ontario, and we loved it there. Hopefully you get to go again soon!
