I think this has been our most entertaining month thus far. You have SUCH a personality. You are quite a little attention magnet—everywhere we go. This is sometimes good and sometimes…not so good. We are often late getting where we need to go because I have to pull you from your faithful followers.
You wake generally a very happy little boy. From the time you wake up until about an hour before bed, you are usually all smiles. The only time you really seem to get fussy is before bed and when you’re hungry. When you’re hungry, someone better feed you. NOW. We have snacks stashed in every bag and every vehicle in case of emergencies. That sweet little baby can really turn into a monster when his belly gets to rolling.
Your appetite? Isane. Most people would never believe how much you actually eat if they didn’t see it for themselves—especially considering your size. You eat and eat and eat and don’t really gain weight. You are not underweight, by far, but one would think you’d be huge with the amount of food you consume. I have to admit…I’m a little jealous of that.
You’re trying to go to one nap a day. Sometimes you do well with just one afternoon nap, but other times, that morning nap is still needed. This leads to another nap in the afternoon. You’re getting there!
Grandma and Grandpa came for a visit this month and stayed for two weeks. You had a blast. They loved every minute of it as well. Although, I’m fairly certain that they were crashed out on the sofa for a couple of days once they got home. They aren’t used to someone with that much energy!
We went lots of places—shopping, the Atlanta aquarium, shopping, the waterfalls, the lake, shopping…
You were a real trooper. You didn’t put up too bad of a fuss, even when you were exhausted. That curiosity of yours keeps you moving even when your body has just had it. We have lots of photos and videos of our excursions. It was a great time. We can’t wait to see them again soon. The next time we are going to Ohio so you can see Uncle Matt. I know he misses you like crazy.
