I can't believe it's been another wonderful month since my last blog about you! I take so many pictures of your sweet smiling face, but this month has been so busy I haven't shared them like I should be (shame on mamma.) Time has flown by since your birth! You are growing so fast that I already have to look back to see how tiny you used to be!
So...let's talk about those smiles! Oh.my.goodness!! You are so stinkin' cute! It doesn't matter what's going on in our day, no matter the stress level, it just takes one of your smiles to melt all our troubles away. Not to mention how easy it is to get you to smile. Just a couple goofy sounds, one of my made up songs that you seem to enjoy, or sometimes just seeing our faces sends you into a fit of smiles. It is SO much fun!!
The saddest thing that happened this month is that I had to go back to work. With Grandpa Grygar being your babysitter, I knew you would be in good hands, but it definitely made me (and still makes me) sad knowing I would have to go ALL day without getting to see you. I missed singing to you, playing with you, having intense conversations with you, and even having to change the occassional outfit do to your thoughtful gifts of spit-up. I have to say, I do make it through the day, but I am definitely still coping. It always helps when I go to pick you up and you flash me a HUGE smile when you see me walk in the room!
As I mentioned before, you are growing like crazy! We already have a pretty decent sized pile of clothes you have grown out of. Most 0-3 clothes no longer fit you. :( You are also getting so strong! You pretty much have full control of your head and neck and are doing some solid push-ups at tummy time. You are almost ready to sit up in your Bumbo, but I think you would enjoy it more if you were able to hold on to some toys first. This month you also started rolling onto your side. Pretty soon you'll be rolling all over the place!
I'm fairly certain you are already starting to teethe. We are starting to have to dress you in a bib because you drool about a kiddy-pool sized amount of spit a day (see drool in picture below.) You are also finding your hands quite tasty. You like your paci, but you also like grabbing it, throwing it out of your mouth, and replacing it with your entire fist! Every now and then you realize that your long fingers do in fact reach the back of your throat which in turns causes you to gag. Just about a hundred more trial-and-errors and then maybe you'll figure it out!
Well, I guess it's time to move towards month 4! We have a lot planned for this month, and I'm sure you have a lot of growing ahead of you. Thank you for bring us endless joy everyday! We love you more than we could ever say!
