Falling behind in posting but during Cadence’s 6 month mark, she spent 10 days in Denver. She is starting to crawl now, specifically if you put a cell phone, laptop or her penguin stuffed animal in front of her. She’ll army crawl for it!
Teething has been rough. We got her an amber necklace but not sure if it’s working. In Denver, she stopped eating for a few days and also got a cold. She was refusing milk and food, unless it was cold. So we had to make sure milk and food went in the fridge first. She cried a lot at night — to the point where I had to drive her around one night at 2am so she wouldn’t wake up the whole house. Poor babe. Definitely not feeling well on this trip.
Flying back to San Diego with her was quite an adventure. Our 8 p.m. flight was delayed 30 minutes, just long enough for her to become overtired and cranky. Shortly after takeoff, Cadence had a blowout diaper with poo all over her back. Following, she threw up all her milk on me… Twice. We basically landed in San Diego with Cadence wearing a hoodie and diapers. No other clothes were spared in her vomit attack. Luckily, I sat by a mom, Debra, who helped me out the entire flight. Forever grateful.
Cadence continues to bounce a lot in her bouncer. Her legs are very strong now and she cracks up every time she is in it. Ba Noi helps take care of her twice a week and she gets lots of giggles from Cadence. Halfway to 1 year and we are loving her determined and social personality.
