Please forgive me...
... for holding back Mom from updating her blog!
Yep, it's me again. Tomorrow I will have six weeks of life under my belt! This whole living thing is a breeze... I get carried around all day and have people ooohing and ahhhing at me everywhere I turn. And when I say carried around ALL day, I mean it. I do not appreciate being put down. Ever. I don't get why Mom and Dad wouldn't want to stare at this sweet face all day, anyway. Come on!
This month has been full of milestones. First I would like to announce that at my one month weigh-in I was 9 lbs and 15 ounces. That's right... I've gained a whopping 3 pounds in one month. Mom thinks I'm well into 10 lbs now. Contrary to what you might think, I do not eat all day. I am just very intentional at feeding times. I get the job done.
I also took my first bath this month! It was about time because I was getting tired of those sponge baths. I love bath time as you can see below... you can also see how I'm trying to talk Dad into getting me a cell phone.
Another noteworthy moment was when I met the firemen, ambulance driver, paramedics, and policemen one day. I spit up while taking a nap and had a choking incident. Mom cried a lot more than I did... but we all turned out okay! I tried to tell her how cool it was that I got to see my first firetruck but she basically just cried all day and kept telling me how much she loves me. Geesh... Mom's are so mushy!
I wish I could tell you that I'm such a sweet baby all day, but frankly I just like to cry. A lot. It's a stage I'm going through (Mom hopes!), but I do have my sweet moments. I've been smiling a lot lately, but not really in response to anything that anyone does. I just have these jokes running through my head... wish I could tell you how funny they are!
Okay, it's about time for my second dinner before bedtime! It's been so fun to meet a lot of you. Thanks for the visits and all the wonderful gifts... Mom and Dad keep telling me how lucky I am to have such a great family and such wonderful friends. I think they're right!
PS... Mom would like for you to look below for a new post about what's going on in the ministry!
