So the babyproofing has been kicked up into high gear, Mister Man. You are officially crawling, rolling, downward-facing dog-ing, and very seldom sitting still. You can also push yourself from your tummy into a sitting position. I’ve never seen you go through with it all the way, but you’ve been sitting up in your crib several times when I came to get you, so I know you can do it.
SLEEP! You sleep through the night now! You have no idea how much Mommy appreciates that. You still occasionally have disturbances after you go to bed but usually all you need is a pacifier and a few pats on the bottom and you’re back out again. You also get teething tablets that dissolve in your mouth at bedtime. You still don’t have any teeth yet but they do bother you. (And sometimes they bother me… you occasionally bite while nursing.)
We’re in another quarter of swim class. Mr. Ron declared you a veteran, so you got different instructions than the rest of the babies last week. We also went to the saltwater pool in our subdivision but you thought the water was too cold (it was) and didn’t much care for it. You enjoyed just floating in your baby float though, even if I did have to keep a hand under your chin so you didn’t try to drink the water.
You’re still eating your veggies like a champ. You’ve started smacking your lips after you eat a bite of food. When you’re older I’ll probably scold you for doing that, but right now it’s adorable. You definitely know what to do when it’s time to eat–more than one person has commented on how you’re like a little baby bird: you see that spoon and your mouth opens.
You’re getting some hair! It’s still very fine and light but it’s thicker than it has been lately. I brush it when you get out of the bath and you don’t seen to mind. Your eyelashes are also getting thicker, longer, and darker.
You love to laugh. Sometimes you don’t even need a reason–you just laugh for the fun of it. Your buddy at the babysitter’s, A, has taught you to squeal sometimes when something is REALLY funny, and that’s simply hilarious.
You’re really interested in texture right now. You like to see how things feel in your hands and how they sound when dropped or banged against something else. You kick your feet and bat things around with your hands–hard enough that it should hurt! But I think you’re just experimenting with how stuff feels.
You’re getting so big so fast! I love you, baby.
