I’m more than a week late in posting this, but that’s because you and your sister keep me b-u-s-y. However, I think I’m going to be even busier next month because you’re on the verge of becoming mobile. Yikes!!! It’s been a big month for you and you’ve smiled that sweet grin all the way through it. Here’s what you’ve been up to…
As I mentioned, we think you’re going to be crawling any day now. You’re rocking on all fours and you can army crawl when you really want to. When Arden was emptying her piggy bank one morning we found out that you’re pretty into coins…you made it all the way across the room to try to get your hands on a quarter. Sorry bud–choking hazard!
You know Arden by the pitter patter of her feet. When she comes running you start whipping your head around to get a glimpse of your favorite person 🙂 I love how much you love her!
We’ve tried a lot of new foods with you this month and still haven’t found anything you don’t like. One day at Gigi & Papa’s you ripped a hot dog bun off my plate and stuffed it in your mouth before I could even process what was happening!! I think you’re ready to ditch baby food and head straight to meat and potatoes!
It’s time to lower your crib mattress a notch. You can get from your tummy to sitting up now…and you’re pretty proud of it! It’s fun to come in after your naps and see you sitting up like a big boy.
You started waking up again once at night–usually around 4am. I know we should probably let you fuss through it but I’m just too lazy and I’ve decided it doesn’t bother me all that much. I actually love picking you up out of your crib because you wrap your arms around my neck and squeeze so hard. We can break the habit later if we need to, but for now I’ll take the midnight hugs.
You’re officially a high maintenance nurser. Basically we have to be in your room…in the dark…with the white noise on. Geez Louise! Gone are the days of feeding you while your sister eats breakfast. You’re too interested in Mickey Mouse!!
Hazel fascinates you. And she likes you too…for now. I’m afraid that when you start crawling you will join her list of small people to avoid.
Your belly laugh is the best.
You’re becoming pretty attached to me. You’ll be completely happy and content until I come in the room and then you NEED me…NOW! I don’t hate it 🙂
You like swinging…something your sister never did. We got a new playset this month (holla!) and you got your own bucket seat.
You went on your second road trip this month. We went to Hannibal to watch Luke’s baseball game and you did great the whole time. I have a feeling we’re going to be watching that guy swing his bat for many years…he’s got talent!
Although in pictures it may seem that our life is “normal” again…the truth is that I feel very far from that most of the time. But like the song says: you make me happy when skies are gray.
Love you buddy,
