When the heck did this happen? You are growing much too fast my dear. I'm pretty sure I say that every time I write one of these...but it's true. It's bitter sweet. I look at pictures of your tiny, skinny little body from months ago and miss your first little noises. But each time you get a little bigger and learn to do something new I get so excited for you! It's the coolest thing to see you learn how to do things.
You are rockin' the rice cereal. You can eat it sitting up in your Bumbo chair now without it dribbling out of your mouth. You get quite mad if I'm not right there ready with the next bite for you.
You are starting to like peek-a-boo! You even anticipate us popping up again.
You've learned how to shake a rattle! It seemed to happen all of the sudden. I handed it to you and your little arm starting going crazy shaking it.
You can sit up! Not all the time by yourself, but for a solid 30 seconds to a minute. Even longer if your Boppy is behind you to give you a little more balance.
For some reason you are OBSESSED with the tiniest of details. Like the light switch above your changing table. You also love playing with tags (more than the toy the tag is attached to actually). The other day you also saw your shadow and just stared and stared. It was pretty funny.
I hope you'll be crawling soon-ish. You don't seem in any rush. Although you can push yourself all the way up on your arms, and sometimes you scoot yourself backwards a little, but that's about it.
You have TWO teeth! One is about halfway grown in and the other just cut through. They're both on the bottom. You didn't seem THAT fussy to be teething, so A+ job on that. You did bite me the other day though, so that was no bueno. I suppose I should be a little more careful around those chops.
We're trying to wean you off one of your medicines again. Last time wasn't so successful, but so far you've been getting half of your regular dose and you've done wonderful! Hopefully we'll be able to cut that one out completely over the next week or so.
You are quite the wiggle worm. It's getting fairly challenging to change your diaper, because you usually try to roll over. Once you do start crawling I'm sure you'll want to be all over the place all the time.
You grab faces. And hair. You like to do it the most when you're eating or falling asleep. Those little fingernails don't feel very good when they're digging into skin.
Falling asleep has gotten MUCH easier for you. We attempted to let you "cry it out" a couple of weeks ago, but that was an utter failure. The first night it took you an hour and a half and the second night you barfed 20 minutes into crying, so we decided that wasn't gonna work. Fortunately you're doing much better without that whole process. You just like your binky, a hand to hold, a few songs and you're out. You're also doing better at STAYING asleep, which is much appreciated.
Keep being awesome kid.
