*"flying" with daddy. You get the biggest gummy smiles
*watching tv (you will roll over to find it once you hear it is on)
*your jumparoo and exersaucer
*bath time (still your favorite)
*standing up (you LOVE to stand!)
*rolling onto your tummy (constantly!)
*having something (ANYTHING) to chew on
*talking... you can be quite loud and seem to be pretty proud of yourself
*You went a few weeks where you didn't really roll over, now you are rolling from your back to your tummy constantly.
*talking in a LOUD voice.. recently you have discovered how loud your voice can get.. its interesting to say the least.
*grabbing for toys
*you have found your feet and love pulling them up
*trying to roll over during diaper and clothes changes
*sitting up, you can sit up so well and barely need any support, just one hand on your back.
*laughing: you don't do it often.. although the person you do it the MOST for is Aunt Kathy-- you must really like her :)
Sleep: Your naps are the same as last month. Anywhere from 45 minutes - 2 hours depending on how tired you are. Lately you have woken yourself up a lot rolling over. You go to bed at 8pm and on a good night wake up once around 2 am to eat and then are up for the day at 7 am. Some nights you eat twice, once around 12 am and once around 4 am. Obviously I enjoy the once a night more but it seems random as to when you wake up twice. Oh well!
Crying: Oh Wes.. your Daddy and I have gotten some good laughs by watching you "pout". YOU put on quite a little show. If you are unhappy and things aren't going your way you will pull out that bottom lip, and start the most pitiful cry. Then, daddy and I will do something funny and you immediately get a HUGE grin. You really don't cry out of being upset very often, mostly it only happens if you are really hungry or a noise scares you.
Eating: You eat every 3 to 3.5 hours during the day. We will start solids after we get the go from your pedi at your 4 month check up (Jan. 3rd)
Pictures from this month:
|We had christmas at home before we left for all of our christmas traveling. You were so cute and very interested in the noisy wrapping paper.|
|We didn't get you very much because we knew you didn't know any different and everyone else would spoil you rotten.. and we were right!|
|Lucy enjoyed digging in her sack!|
|You even helped mommy open her gift. I am sure next year you will REALLY be helping us!|
|With Aunt Kris at the lakehouse, this was our first christmas with family.|
|We also celebrated my birthday. It was special since it was my first birthday as a mommy. Last year, I had just recently found out I was pregnant and kept thinking ahead to this birthday and how special it would be!|
|Aunt Kris and Uncle Bruce got you this cute Ark from FAO Schwartz with the animals on it. You made us all laugh because you went STRAIGHT for the giraffe. I think it reminded you of Sophie, your teething giraffe!|
|Hanging out with Koko|
|One night Sophie came to bath time with us. You still love your bath so much!|
|I love this picture because your shirt says "Just like daddy" and that you are.|
|Before our small group christmas party.|
|We spent christmas morning with your cousins in Burleson. Rich and Bella really love looking at you and it will be SO fun next year when y'all are really playing together!|
|Your first christmas (and Bella's) was a White Christmas! There was some snow in Burleson but on the 26th we drove to Grammy and Pa's house where there was LOTS of snow!|
|We had Christmas in Holliday with ALL of your cousins on December 28th. This is all the great-grandchildren with Grandmaw! We had THREE new babies born this year- Bella, Bowen, and you!|
|The whole Stone family!|
|You give us BIG smiles all the time and we love it buddy!|
|We can't believe what a BIG boy you are! You are really moving around and love to look at just about anything!|
|You bring us so much joy!|
