I have wanted to post pictures and tell a story for quite some time. Here is a wrap up.
2 months old!!
It was a big month. he learned to get his fingers, stand on his little legs with someone helping him, coo and goo much more, straighten out his legs, kick a lot, reach for objects. he grabs his shirt, daddy’s hair on his hands and beard. however, he cannot reach for a toy and grab it. he can hold onto a toy once he has it in his hands. he can stay up on his tummy with a boppy for at least 10-15 minutes now. he sorta hates it but he does it. he hates tummy time on his tummy on the ground without the boppy. he use to roll over to his back but now he just cries a lot and screams. he can get his hand in his mouth. he isn’t so good at keeping it there and it can often be a very sad thing to watch. he gets very upset when he can’t keep those fingers or hand in his mouth! poor guy.
this is the end of my maternity leave. i am so sad about it. i am very grateful though for the people who are going to take care of him over the next two months, one of which is his daddy! yay! starting at 3 months mommy will be a full time worker. gotta set a good example for the little guy. want to be able to pay for his college and buy him cute clothes. 🙂 and live in a nice house with a giant garden where he can pick his own food.
3 months old was great too!!
I am now standing in an excersaucer all propped up with blankets. It’s quite fun but I get really frustrated because I can grab things but i can’t get them directly in my mouth. It’s a major bummer. I have been loving spending time with all of my auntie’s who have volunteered to take the time to watch me while my mom and dad bring home the bacon. Grandma Jennifer came for a visit and that was super fun! My tummy time is increasing but I still hate being on my belly. I kick a lot and grab objects close by. I can say mamamamama…..but I don’t say it all of the time. I say a lot of vowels and make this silly static-y sound. I think it’s fun. I love my little frog noise maker. And I am starting to sleep up to 7 hours a night. We went to our local parade in St. Johns and I have been on walks and hung out with the family a lot. I also had some amazing pictures taken of me. 🙂 This month was also mother’s day and we got to go and spend the early afternoon with our friends for brunch. Mommy got to have a lovely blood orange mimosa. My friend Hyde and I just chilled out. We were talking comic books. Daddy bought me a new bunny hat and my first cap. I also got to hang out with auntie Amanda at the Mississippi carts. There is so much more but this is a little glimpse into my 3rd month of being in the world.
