Month Three (May 5th - Jun 4th)

It has been a wonderful month.  I believe one of my weekly posts has already covered up to Mother's Day, so we will continue from there. This month has been a month of change.  Every day it seems like he is learning something new.  He "talks" to us all the time and has definitely developed a bit of an attitude. Here he is telling me he does not want to be in the carseat.

 He tells us if something is wrong, in no uncertain terms. He has also started a very half-assed but dramatic cry.  We haven't figured it out yet, but he frequently stops and looks at us and even smiles in between his cries of "ooowah ooowah."  He has started reaching for toys and has been grasping on to every thing in reach.  We also think he may have started teething.

 He loves being outside

 and we often spend the afternoon on a quilt in the front yard looking at clouds.

He is gaining a lot of strength, and is trying so hard to roll over but hasn't quite made it yet.

He also had one very short nap all by himself in his room.  Daddy watched the camera the entire time. 

His hair just keeps getting longer and longer.

He can't sit up on his own, but his Bumbo gives him a little independence. 

And as soon as his feet reach the floor his jumper will, too!

Speaking of feet, he has recently discovered his hands and feet, and can't keep his hands out of his mouth!

We recently attempted bedtime sans swaddle

and it went well the first night, but slowly unraveled...and so did mommy, so we are back in the swaddle for now. 

And speaking of bedtime, it is almost mine. 

I hope you enjoyed our little update!  See you next month!

New schedule!

I still want to keep this up as a regular thing, so I have decided to make at least one monthly post by the 4th of each month. (if I am in town, July's post will be late!) So, look for more pictures and an update on life on Gwynn Oaks sometime Wednesday evening! Please pester me to update if I don't do it on time.
