This month you had your first trip(s) to Massachusetts. You met everyone. Well, your aunts and uncle and cousins and great-grandmothers, and some 2nd cousins, great aunts, great uncles, and friends. You still have some extended family to meet, and you will meet them soon! They are all crazy about you. I don't blame them. You're so easy to love.
You witnessed your first hurricane, and your first snow. You loved staring at the snow. You slept through the hurricane.
You are now making eye contact and smiling at us when we talk to you. It is the best thing in the world.
You are so strong. You can push things (and people) away with your hands if you aren't interested, and you can stretch your little legs out and hold yourself up in standing position. You're totally lacking balance, as you should be, but I would not be surprised if you walk at 8 or 9 months. That makes me want to cry.
You have crazy beautiful eyelashes.
You're wearing 0-3 clothes, and even some 3 month sleepers. The 3 month stuff is still a bit big for you, but not by much.
I had my first full day away from you. I missed you so much, but your Mimi loved that time with you.
We visited Grandma at work and all of her coworkers adored you. You are very charming.
You poop really loudly, and it's always hilarious.
You're now sleeping in your crib. Your first big step towards independence.
You are still breastfeeding like a champ. I love our time together feeding you. I am scared of when you start getting teeth.
You got your shots today. You were so brave, and you don't even know it. I was a wreck, but you had your cry and then were done. I had my first feeling of real pride for you.
You use pacifiers, but you also have taken to nomming on your hands, namely your right hand. Your Papa thinks you're going to be righthanded. Since your daddy and I are lefties, he says "two lefts make a right". We'll see!
You seem to hate tummy time, but we'll stick with it. You can hold your neck up on your own now, and can turn it side to side.
I keep seeing these awesome glimpses of your personality coming out. I can't wait until we can interact even more.
The jury's still out on what color your hair will be, but I'm pretty sure you're going to be a blue-eyed beauty.
We love you more and more every day. It seems impossible to be able to love someone more than we love you, but it just continues to grow and amaze us.
You are the best.
