Well Brynn, I’m on a roll. I’m posting this late again. It seems that these days it’s hard for me to find time to do the things I really want to do. The stuff I have to do comes first and then there isn’t much time left. How different life is with a baby in the house again. It’s a great thing and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
In the last month you have really changed. You are ‘talking’ now and best of all you have a really great laugh. It is a very funny sound and you do it often. All three of us love to hear it and always laugh along with you.
You have discovered your hands. The only thing you really do with them right now is suck on them. This mostly happens when you’re hungry, but you’ve been known to use them when you have already spit out your binkie. You really know how to work over a binkie too. There have been quite a few times when we’ve been in the car and I hear you back there sucking on it. You do the same with your hands, but not as loud. The noise from the hand sucking comes when you cough because you’ve managed to stuff your hands too far into your mouth that you gag yourself. It doesn’t stop you from stuffing them right back in there though.
You have decided that you are only going to have a few bottles a day. No matter how often we try to convince to take a bottle you will only take it on your terms. Sometimes you go up to ten hours between bottles. I was worried at first, but now I know that you will eat when you’re hungry and that’s all there is to it.
You really are enjoying being out in the warm weather. Actually we all are. Your reaction to being in the sun is always the same, sneezes. When you first get into the sun you always have to sneeze a few times. It’s pretty cute. We do keep you in the shade for the most part, but you really do love the sun.
Right now you enjoy laying on your entertainment mat and grabbing at the toys on it. You also love the flashing lights and songs that come from it. Another fun thing for you is sitting in your bumbo seat. It’s easy to see the results too. You can definitely sit in there longer as time goes by and you are sitting up better each day. It won’t be long until your core is strong enough that you’ll be sitting on your own with a big pile of toys to play with. Daddy loves making these piles in front of babies. He used to put enough in front of your sister that she would be busy for an hour.
Brynn you really are such a love and pleasant baby. Everyone comments on how easy going you are. That makes it very easy to be your mom. I’m looking forward to another month of fun new discoveries for you.
