We still don't have the crypto results, but Bennett's poop is finally back to normal! Hallelujah! That's how it always works--make mom, in an act of utter desperation, do the most disgusting thing she has ever done in her life, and next day, BLAMMO, the boy is better. Of course, he is.
We went to a fall festival this evening, and Bennett enjoyed playing with the little pumpkins. He took one home and refused to let it go the entire walk and hayride back to our car. Of course, he thinks its a ball, which makes me think that I need to get some better balls at our house before he crashes a pumpkin on the rug.
For a development update, Bennett is not quite walking yet, but will take a few steps when he deems its quicker than crawling. He tries to say "dog", but it comes out "da". He can point to the dogs and the light, and is doing great at one step commands, liking putting his toys in the ottoman or sitting down. We are still working on night-weaning. He's not screaming as much, but an unexpected side effect is that now he wants to wake up and not go back to sleep around 4:30 or 5 a.m. We're officially over the first week and we will keep trying. On a positive note, though he woke up crying at 4 and then 4:30, he put himself back to sleep by the time I got down the hall to check on him. Unfortunately for me, I still woke up, but hopefully this is a good sign.
