*You are 17 pounds 13 ounces
*You are finally sleeping very well at night again. You sleep from 7/8pm to 7/8 am. Both Mommy & Daddy like this very much.
*You are wearing 3-6 month onesies and short outfits, but 6-9 month sleepers (you’re too tall for 3-6 months anymore!)
*You eat 6-7 oz every 3-4 hours during the day
*Mommy thinks you are teething since you’ve been a little fussy lately and you constantly have your fingers or fist in your mouth (as evidenced in the photos!)
*Since Dr O put you on Prevacid 2 weeks ago, you are much happier again. You still spit up a lot, but you’re obviously feeling better.
*You love all your siblings (and Mom & Dad too) & smile at everyone. You actually will smile at anyone who talks to you, but your family is your favorite.
Smiling at big brother, Joshua, below:
*You love to play. You are so busy, busy, busy with your toys. Whether it’s your bouncy seat with the animal toy bar or your exersaucer, which is your favorite, you have fun.
*You are getting much better at reaching for and grabbing things. Mommy had a hard time taking a camera video of Joshua earlier because she was holding you with one hand and holding the camera with the other hand and you kept grabbing at the camera!
*You still like your binky at times, but you are very good at putting your fists in your mouth and you love to suck on them. Mommy hasn’t noticed any specific finger or thumb sucking like your siblings yet, but we’ll see.
*You love playing with your exersaucer. You surprised Mommy by not needing any extra blankets stuffed around you for support – nope, you were good to go all on your own. You stand in there like a pro and you even spin around so you can check out all the toys.
*You’re not sitting up yet, but then Mommy hasn’t had much time to let you “practice” this past month, so that will be coming soon. You do try to “sit” whenever you can.
Like here: you went from leaning back on the couch to this by yourself:
*You still kick your leg like crazy when you want to be picked up. It’s so funny.
*You love to stand now. Daddy will sit you on his lap and you’ll pull yourself into a standing position just by holding onto Daddy’s fingers with no help from Daddy. And you get very excited and smile and squeal when you do this. So cute!
*You still cuddle with Mommy while she rocks you to sleep sometimes. Although, it’s nice that you are so good about falling asleep by yourself in your crib too.
