Happy Birthday cousin Skyler! Wish I could be there to celebrate with you.
Since it wasn't the best of weather here, we stuck close to home. I got lots of play time with my new pump. I was able to roll around on the floor, sit up with some help from Mommy and stand in my walker. In the morning Mommy was sitting next to me on the floor while I was practicing my sitting up skills. She turned away to get the suction catheter and by the time she turned around, I had fallen backwards and hit my head. My head hit the rug, but there is only hardwood floors underneath so it made a bonking sound. I started crying right away and Mommy felt terrible! She said she wishes she could always be there to stop me from falling but that won't always be the case. Good thing I am such a strong little girl. She gave me lots of kisses and made sure the rest of the day that she kept a hand or leg behind my back to prevent it from happening again. I can go five minutes or more at a time before tipping over - I am getting much better. In fact, now I can reach forward and pick up toys and still not fall over! Impressive, huh? I am seven months old now.
