*Is becoming more smiley and a little less judgey - although he can still pull out some side out like it's his job.
*Is what we're calling "pre-teething." Everything goes in the mouth and he's been biting on things for a couple of weeks. It's still a little early for teeth themselves but he's started drooling more (hello bibs!), so I wouldn't be surprised if he has a tooth by month four.
*Really enjoys tummy time now - he holds his head and shoulders up and a lot of times props himself on his arms. He even rolled from his stomach to his back one day! We think it was kind of a fluke (he hasn't done it since), but still so cool!
*Enjoys "flying" or airplane (despite what it looks like), and kicks his legs/moves his arms when we do it so it looks like he's swimming - so funny!
*Still loves ceiling fans, and has a great love for his "ladybug" mat. (See picture below). He'll touch the ladybug that dangles, and then all of a sudden smack the ladybug and laugh as she goes swinging all around! (They have a complicated relationship).
*Likes to be sitting up all the time so he can see what's going on. When we feed him now we start with him sitting up and then slowly angle him back a bit. (Yes, it is as weird as it sounds).
*Was baptized! It was a beautiful ceremony and Ben and I couldn't have been happier with the experience - more on this (with pictures!) soon!
*Is actually enjoying pumping at work - it's a nice break, which is a welcome change from how I was feeling.
*Has been doing some Itsy Bitsy Yoga with Parks and we both love it!
*Love how smiley P gets when I sing to him - part of his bedtime routine is me singing "Amazing Grace," and sometimes he will coo at the same time, like he's singing with me! It cracks me up and melts my heart all at once.
*Missed when he did his first roll - I was at work, and Ben called to tell me. I was so excited and so sad all at once. I think my response was "oh my gosh that's awesome, but I missed it!"
*Received some heart breaking news from a fellow infertility warrior last week. Not my story to tell, but suffice it to say infertility is a bitch, and "survivor's guilt" is a real thing.
*Are still working on sleep. The nights are sloowly getting better, but Parks is still a crappy daytime napper - typically only about 40 minutes at a time.
*Aren't going to think about how we are 1/4 of the way through his first year already - woah baby!
*Love how he loves us! He's always recognized our voices, and he'll smile at people, but he saves the biggest smiles and giggles for Ben and me and it warms my heart!
