Thoughtful Sweet Potato,
Not only do you pull off your socks and put your toes in your mouth, now you try to get the whole foot in there! It's adorable to watch.
You still haven't mastered the whole rolling over thing but are starting to arch your back and lay on your side more and more on the play mat.
Our pediatrician has given the green light for whole Cheerios! Mommy doesn't have to bite them in half and you like them as well as the banana flavored Puffs. You'll eat Mum-Mums too but really, you could take them or leave them. Rice cereal has been mixed in with the oatmeal and you're okay with that. You're even okay now with the green veggies and will eat anything given to you without complaining although there is a not-so-happy face when you're fed a certain brand of pureed bananas.
We've been struggling a little with the night time sleeping but just this week, you're sleeping longer and waking up less! And you always wake up for the day with a big smile on your face.
Your latest cuteness trick is to kick your right leg over and over again wherever you are: in the high chair, in the crib, on the floor - "kick, kick, kick, kick!" And the doorway jumper is getting a work out too - you bounce away in it with a look of sheer joy on your face!
The Dynamo, my Little Lover,
You have so much energy and affection. You love kisses on your cheeks and open your mouth wide when you laugh - which is often. There's no guessing how you feel about something be it happy or sad.
You still sleep really well at night and don't mind your crib during the day for naps. Mommy always puts you down to sleep on your back and you're still flipping over to your tummy but usually you're okay with that and Mommy is too. Flipping you back over just wakes you up and ticks you off and you go back to your tummy anyway.
You like Cheerios and although you can't pick them up from the tray on your high chair, if a Cheerio is in your little hand, you'll try to get it in your mouth. Mum-Mums are a favorite and you have no problem holding them.
You like when Mommy dances around the kitchen and sings even though she doesn't always know the words and can't carry a tune. :)
