On Fridays, I send a short update to Theo’s birthmom.
Our little man now weighs 18.5 pounds. He loves rolling and has successfully rolled himself under the coffee table, up to the edge of the sofa and against the sliding glass door. He also inches himself in a pre-crawl kind of way slowly towards metal, shiny or a clearly out-of-bounds objects.” Favorites: the stereo speakers, the remotes, my transistor radio, the camera, the dishwasher (he tried to climb into the dishwasher). Who needs toys?!
Another new favorite activity is lying on his back holding his toes and staring at them (highly cute). He is still super smiley but appears to be getting a little bit shyer in public situations. At my infant/moms group, he started crying when I put him down on the mat. I think the 11 other babies on the mats threw him off his game a little. That said, shortly after, he was going after another kids toy, holding (well more like gripping) a little girl’s hand, and laughing his head off!
Overall, he’s happy and healthy and continues to surprise and delight us (except at 4 am haha).
