Size: He goes to the doctor for his check-up on Wednesday, but according to our measurements at home he weighs 19 pounds and is 28 inches long.
Teeth: He isn't cutting any teeth yet, but he drools like crazy and chews on anything that will fit in his mouth. I'm calling it pre-teething.
Skills/Hobbies: If I put him on the floor he will sit, unassisted, and play with toys. His dexterity is increasing and he can pick up toys, put them in his mouth and grip things very tightly. He has been playing in his walker for the past month or so, but in the past week he has learned to move it forward and backward and to turn it around. Yes, I have one of the older
Eating: We started him on
Sleep: He goes to bed around 9:15 every night. On workdays we get him up at 6:30 (he's usually still asleep) so I can nurse him before work. On weekends we all sleep in as long as Luke will let us, which is sometimes as late as 9:00. He stopped sleeping through the night around 4 months, but then we started him on rice cereal and he went right back to being a perfect sleeper. Yes, I realize how lucky we are. Yes, I am kind of afraid to have another one.
Looks: His eyes are still bright blue and he has his daddy's long eyelashes. Now that he's getting more exercise he is losing his milk belly, but he still has deliciously chunky baby thighs. His mullet is almost gone but the hair on the top of his head is filling in. It is soft and sticks straight out - it feels like the fuzz of a baby chick!
Ok, enough blabbing. I will let the pictures (mostly) speak for themselves.
