On Aug 9, the second to last day of me teaching my undergrad class and our nanny’s last day — Davin learned to crawl!!! We were very excited! But I was freaking out a little inside that night after our nanny left cause she was awesome and I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do with this mobile creature who was ready to destroy our house lol… But we’ve baby proofed a few rooms and he is pretty good at entertaining himself with chewing on shoes and covering himself in dog hair as he goes… I’m trying to tell myself its good for his immune system lol.
Once I finished grading, then Davin & I took our first flight and visited my family in AZ for a week and he turned 7 months while we were there. Luckily we got an extra seat and a nice seatmate on both the flight there and back! But he only took about a 1/2 hour nap instead of the needed 2 hour hap so he was pretty grumpy… we stood by the bathroom for about an hour to keep him from crying lol. And we bought a used double stroller for our nanny share so the airport going back was a bit more tricky.
In AZ we had a fun time swimming in my parents pool and hanging lots with my sister, mom, and extended family on my mom’s side! And Davin Francis got to meet his great grandma Frances! We were having too much fun and forgot to take many pics but got a few:
