Weekend Update with Kyler: 23 weeks : Sitting up!

8 Jul

We had a great holiday week! Started out pretty stressful with Kyler’s rash but it turned out to be a great week 🙂 Kyler really doesn’t need help sitting up at all anymore! Sometimes she gets too excited and pushes back and tumbles over. Because of that, I really don’t leave her unless there is something soft for her to land on, like a pillow. I like for her to correct herself when she goes to tumble so she gets stronger rather than me helping her all the time. She is showing signs of tucking her knees under her now and pushes up fully with her arms. She usually does one or the other, however, I have caught her doing both when she was trying to get over to a toy. Can’t believe it but I have a feeling she will be crawling sooner than later!

I was off on Monday morning and the plan was to get things done around the house. That plan ended when Kyler woke up with a really bad rash all over her head and a last-minute trip to the doctor. For the rest of the day, we just laid in my bed and had a low-key day. I kept her comfortable and we snuggled ❤

Made it downstairs a few times to play when we were feeling good. She is going to be crawling in no time.

Kyler went to my mom’s on Tuesday. After work, Chris came back to Orlando to pick me and the dogs up and head back over to Merritt Island for the 4th. When I got there, I noticed Kyler’s rash had gotten much worse and was spreading. You could tell the poor thing was uncomfortable so I called the doctor’s office and had the doctor call me. After some discussion and pictures sent to him, he suggested we drive back to Orlando and take her to Arnold Palmer (children’s hospital) to be safe. With the 4th the next day, he didn’t feel comfortable waiting and I agreed. Doctor’s knew what the rash was, gave her some Benadryl and we were on our way!

Wednesday, we woke up and headed back to Merritt Island for a pool day. We were going to take the boat out but heat makes her rash worse so we stayed close to home. You can read all about her 1st 4th of July here!

While out on the golf cart, we ran into a duck family! 14 babies. So cute!!!

Thursday morning, we headed over to my cousin’s house for a visit and Kyler got to play with her 2 boy cousins Cole and Reid. We ended up going to lunch together too! After that, we went back to Grandma’s and went swimming again.

After dinner, we headed back home.

Friday was just a play day at home. Chris had to work in the morning, I had to work at night.

She went to the doctor again just to follow up. She had a good time ripping the paper up! Her rash is basically gone! Yay!

Back home!

Tired girl.

We woke up on Saturday and went to Buy Buy Baby.

Kyler rode in the shopping cart like a big girl!

She was such a good baby that day! She took a 2 hour nap while Chris and I had lunch and finished up some errands.

She played with her toys (all over her toys…..)

My pretty girl ❤

And she played with her doggies!  Kyler has really developed her “scream”. I am not going to lie, it drives me nuts. I try and curb it, although I know she is only 5 months old and finding her voice, but we try to not encourage it 🙂

The dogs love Kyler and Kyler loves the dogs. They are so gentle with her and surprisingly, Kyler is gentle with them! Obviously we watch them like a hawk to make sure Kyler is safe and to make sure they are all being sweet. Disclaimer: Yes the dogs licked her, yes we gave her a bath right away 🙂 

Video is kind of dark, oops!

Sunday was a lazy day. Chris mowed the lawn, I cleaned up the kitchen, Kyler played with her toys.

Set up a little barrier so I could clean the kitchen.

Afternoon consisted of hanging out with my parents and heading to the store and lunch. When we got home, The Gilbertsons came over to play! Kenley has been out of town all week so the girls got to play 🙂

Hope everyone had a great week!!!!
