My little darling you are growing so fast! Just look you, you’re sitting so straight and confidently. You can reach for toys and bend forward like a yoga baby, then sit back up all by yourself. You are rolling to and from with ease. You’ve switched from sleeping on your back to on your side or tummy. You don’t mind being on your tummy one bit and will even bunch up your legs beneath your body. I stare in amazement and think the crawling phase could be right around the corner…! You have been eating solids, now twice a day because you are just so interested in them. When I eat, you want you eat with me. It’s adorable to watch you move your mouth hoping the food will come to you. I’ve introduced a sippy cup, but you don’t understand what is going on. Your pediatrician said you should begin to have water in addition to breastmilk and that it’s ok to let you explore drinking from a cup (minus the sippy part). You couldn’t be cuter attempting to lap the water into your mouth. You inhale a little shocked but then are a lot excited as you dive towards the cup for some more. You are babbling with consonants (“buh buh buh”) and making raspberries all the time. You love roughhousing and exclaim with glee when your momma or daddy whisk you around through the air, back and forth. Honestly, we are having just as much fun as you are. You’ve been a traveling man this past month and have gone to Central Florida, the Finger Lakes, Buffalo and Baltimore. We often joke that we wonder where you’ll wake up next. You continue to charm everyone you meet and make us so proud as you are the sweetest and happiest baby we could have ever asked for. Sometimes I don’t know what I ever did to deserve such a loving and mild-mannered child. You make your daddy and me happier than we can ever describe. You complete us and together we are a family.
All my heart forever and ever,
