Baby milestones seem to be much like other major events in life: fuzzy. I’m learning that you can definitely tell when a milestone has been reached, but you never know the exact moment that it is achieved. Eleanor is in the process of getting a tooth. There’s a sharp white bump on her gum, but it’s not all the way through yet. She can roll over from back to front, but seems to be confused when she ends up on her stomach. She hasn’t really mastered the skill, but on occasion she rolls.
Life is normalizing after all the Christmas parties, dinners, and events. After Christmas we drove to Texas for Brandon O’Brien and Amy Packer’s wedding. We got back late on New Year’s Eve. We finally got Eleanor to bed around 11pm and fell into bed ourselves. We were awakened at midnight by pops, bangs, hoops, and hollers. I rolled over and said, “We’re old.” At least our neighbors were considerate enough to wake us in time to welcome in the new year.
