I've noticed that he's really starting to get a personality. He finds things funny out of the blue, like when I start making monkey sounds at him while changing his diaper. He cracked up like I was some sort of comedienne. So now, I spend a lot of my day making monkey sounds, just to try to replicate the smiles I got.
Eating is a new adventure every day. Guy loves to hold onto the spoon and "feed" himself. But really all that's happening is him smearing food all over his face and gagging on the spoon. It takes some doing to keep him from sticking the long pointy end down his throat. He's tried (and liked) the following foods: sweet potatoes, squash, peas, green beans, pears and carrots. We've tried puffs, too, but I'll post a video of that shortly.
He's always trying to escape baby jail.
We try to avoid TV, but the Ravens were in the Superbowl, and apparently he's a HUGE fan. Who knew?
ANYWAY, he sleeps through the night about half of the week. The other half he'll wake up once or twice, but will usually soothe himself back to sleep. During the day on the weekends he gets plenty of sleep in nap form, but at school he rarely sleeps more than a couple of hours total. It's been a real struggle trying to figure out how to get him to have more sleep during the day. There may be a come to Jesus moment with the daycare workers, I think.
No, no. This shot wasn't set up. He totally sleeps with George, honest!
For the last week, I've done a lot of traveling. I went to Ohio for a wedding, came home for two days and then left again for work for another three days. Let me tell you, it was brutal. I missed him so much that it hurt by the time I got back on Friday. I may or may not have indulged him by letting him nap on me most of the weekend. It's just so nice to smell his little head and love on him for a while while he's sleeping.
I mean, really. Who WOULDN'T want to cuddle with that?
He's also been playing around with vocalizing lately. So there's been a lot of baby babble in my house. Though, he refuses to use any other consonant than G. There's a lot of "Gagagagaga" going on, but no Da's or Ma's or Pa's. I'm ready for some new tricks, son.
Greg is sleeping here, so I thought it would be funny to put a baby on him.
That's about the extent of what's going on right now. Well, actually, I'm sure there's a lot more. But I'll try to tell you more about it all later.
