My sweet little boy is getting big and I no longer feel like I’m going to drop and break him. He’s still on the slim side though. Just under 12 lbs and almost 26 inches long, according to TH’s obsessive height check-ins. We’ll have more accurate measurements next week at his doctor’s appointment. But most importantly, he’s healthy. Last month I said he was close to laughing. Not quite sure if what I’m hearing is a legit laugh but he does express heightened bursts of smiles mixed in with gibberish whenever I say, boo. Best word to come out of my mouth. He loves it. I wonder if it’s because he was almost a Halloween baby.
For the most part, he’s pretty chill and relaxed. He must get it from me. Although he’s totally outgrowing his bassinet, he’s still sleeping in our room. And sometimes we co-sleep. Don’t judge. Grabbing and reaching were big steps this month. Rolling over, not so much, but he has done it a few times. Oh, and he realized he had feet last week and was heavily entertained for a bit but by the time I went to grab the camera he was done. But I saw it and it blew even my mind.
We’ve been saving his monthly stickers and by the looks of this month, you’ll notice he’s into putting things in his mouth too.
Being a mom still feels surreal and I still stare at him in awe. And to think there was a time where I couldn’t imagine loving anything or anyone more than Bams and Nora. Babies, they really change your heart and they don’t even know it.
