I’m still basking in the SLEEP that we’re both getting. We had a few rough nights in the last month, but I think it’s because you now have five teeth that have broken through and swollen gums that tell me a few more are on the way.
You’re also starting to scoot around a little more. You’re not really crawling yet and don’t seem to have much interest in pushing up onto your knees, but you have mastered the art of spinning in a circle while on your belly and definitely know how to pull yourself toward an object that you want (usually something you’re not supposed to have or something that belongs to your big sister).
What are you doing? EATING. You are a food monster, going through pouches and packs of puffs and vegetables and yogurt and anything we put in front of you.
We’re also seeing more emotions from you. Lots of laughing, especially when we make kissy or fish faces at you. You also love to clap, although you still need assistance from one of us. And the mommommommommommom baaaabaaaabaaabaabaaaaa noises we hear from you always make me smile.
You not only survived my first trip away, but you seemed to thrive! You forged a new and stronger bond with your Daddy, which was a relief to both of us. But I was very happy to come home.
I love you beyond words, kiddo.
