Kaelyn is now nine and half months. She is growing so fast. She is now mobile. She moves everywhere.. she crawls, stands and tries to walk. She says mama and dadda. She loves to pet the cat and loves to play with the dogs. She loves reading books with mom and occasionally turns the page when told to. She has a routine well down. She wakes up by 7:30-8 am. Eats milk then eats breakfast which could be fruit or cereal. We then get her dressed for the day and change a poppy diaper. She then plays awhile. Takes a nap by 10:30-11am. Wakes up and eats lunch. Then plays for a while. We read books and then it is time for another nap by 2-3pm.. sometimes later by 5. Then eat dinner. By 6:30 bath time. Then we read our nursery rhythm night night book. She knows that it is night time when we read the book. She starts to rub her eyes and yawns. We have read this book to her at night time since she was 2 weeks old. She then eats milk and then in bed by 7:30- 8pm.
We all went to to TX to see my family for Christmas. Kaelyn loved the plane flight. She especially loved the plane taking off. We had a great time seeing my parents, grandparents and aunts & uncles.
When we got back in the grove of things back here in WA, I switched to work 12 hour day shift. So far I am really loving it. I work 6 days out of the 2 weeks, 8 days off. I work from 6 am- 6:30 pm. I am now able to spend more time with Kaelyn. I enjoy getting up in the mornings and going to bed when it gets dark... I love having a "more normal" schedule. It is taking me sometime to adjust from working 8 hour evening shift for 3 years but it is a good adjustment.
