this past month has been so much more fun than the first three. the newborn stage is so sweet and he was so tiny at first and stuff, but hearing him laugh and watching him trying to grab things, and having him smile at me every time I talk to him is so great. it's also nice that he can hold his head up now! he is growing up fast. it's definitely bittersweet, but I seriously love this stage right now.
he is starting to get distracted when he eats, so I have to go somewhere quiet so he can focus haha. he loves sleeping in his car seat and it is the only place he will take a nap longer than 45 minutes (that or in my arms...). he does not, however, seem to like being in the car seat when he is awake. too boring maybe! haha he is very active and when he is awake he wants to be kicking and wiggling. he does love being held, though. he also loves eating his hands, and anything that ends up by his face goes into his mouth. he is not quite coordinated enough to grab stuff, but he tries to! if something (toy, etc) is within his arm's reach, he like tries to grab it and ends up with his hands just clasped together. it's pretty cute to watch him try to concentrate. he gets all wide-eyed haha.
he loves mirrors! he always smiles when we look in a mirror. and he loves to "fly," swing in my arms, and bounce. I don't get laughs very often, but it's usually when he's doing one of those three things.
he loves blowing bubbles, it is so cute. he is a pro at putting weight on his legs these days. I can pull him from his back, up to sitting, and he will pull up to standing almost by himself. it's crazy! strong little legs. especially considering how much weight there is to hold up;) He is now 16lbs 6oz, and 26in long!
