|A September morning at Baby Bounce.|
September started out with our anniversary over Labor Day weekend. We celebrated by getting our first non-family babysitter and going to see Book of Mormon at the Winspear. It was really refreshing to get dressed up and get out of the house for a few hours together!

September is football season and the boys took some great pictures as little Mustangs. They also went to their first game.
I had the opportunity to attend a launch event for Dr. Smith's Diaper Cream here in Dallas at Fearings. It was so fun to connect with other moms and bloggers and celebrate a product I really believe in. Dr. Smith's works, it is safe for my cloth diapers (it was invented and has been in use since before disposables were even a thing!) and it helps my kids stay diaper rash free. I use it on rotation with a Vitamin E cream and we rarely have diaper rash issues at all. Even now at 15m the only rashes we have had have been bacterial infections not normal diaper rash.
Davy had his first SEVERE dairy reaction. He got a goldfish in the church nursery and spent the rest of the day uncontrollably vomitting. His whole little face was bright red and he was just a miserable little guy. This dairy allergy stuff is serious business!

And to end the month, Davy pulled to standing for the first time on September 30!

I am also linking up once again for the Finish This LinkUp. The questions this week are pretty deep!
I feel energized when … I take the time to engage in some "self care" which I'm pretty bad at. Taking the time to shower and actually get dressed makes me feel energized and put together all day long in a way that PJs or yoga pants just don't. You would think with this bit of self knowledge I would take a few minutes for myself everyday. But I don't.
I feel small when … I realize I opened my big mouth and said something careless that hurt someone. I know I am a really sensitive person and get truly hurt by the things other people say. I feel this big when it occurs to me I (normally unintentionally) said something stupid and could be causing that pain and insecurity in someone else.
I feel big when … I look down and can barely see my toes!
I feel stupid when … I am attempting to make friends. I'm socially awkward. I do small talk well. I do acquaintances well. Despite discomfort, I even do social situations well. I don't do the transition from acquaintance to friend very well. Or at all.
I feel smart when … I have the opportunity to sit and work on my dissertation and realize just how far I have come and just how close I am!
