Where has the time gone?
You are such a fun and high maintenance little guy. We are having so much fun watching you explore everything weather you're supposed to be exploring it or not. A lot of the time we are moving you away from things, or things away from you. You are also starting to turn into quite the monkey. You somehow climbed up onto the couch the other day and ended up down in a little hole between the couch and the railing of the stairs. You've done that twice now. Once feet first, and the other head first. You weren't happy about either occurrence.
You love to follow Tanner around and bug the living daylights out of him. But there are the wonderful times where he plays with you and you both have so much fun. The other day you two were chasing each other through the house just squealing, laughing and screaming having a grand old time. You boys also love to play under blankets and make forts out of the couch.
The way you use your voice is so funny and cute to listen to. Just a couple days ago you have started to say "boo." You were trying to be sneaky and sneak up on one of my nail clients and me. When you got really close you out of no where said "Boo!" Both of us thought it was the cutest thing! You are also making this funny little baby bird noise. It's kind of a cross between a laugh and a high pitched coo.
No signs of walking or standing by yourself yet. But you are very efficient with cruising along furniture, walls and people like you always have been.
Still 4 teeth but we can see your eye teeth and canines working their way down. You have been extra fussy for a little while with some classic teething signs and symptoms. So we're hoping something will pop through soon and give you some relief.
You have refused to eat baby food for the last while, and also hate your high chair lately. So I have given up on all of that and have started to feed you table foods on my lap or wherever you happen to be playing just so you'll eat something. Right now you really like plain Cheerios, chocolate rice crispies, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bread and some various fruits.
We are still fighting you with the sippy cup, but you have made some great progress from last month when I was ready to pull my hair out. You are actually chewing and drinking a little from one right now! Way to go buddy! I've found that if I just give it to you and let you play with it, you eventually put it in your mouth and start drinking. It's slow, but getting there!
You are still in all the same size diapers and clothing from last month. We're not sure how much you've grown since we didn't measure or weigh you last month and I'm not really in the mood to do it today. You just squirm way too much, so I'll leave all that up to the Dr's from now on! We'll find out where you are next month.
Thank you for being ours, and making our little family so interesting and fun!
We love you so!
Mommy and Daddy
