We have been outside as much as possible because the temps have been in the 60-75 range. I am happiest when outside, and my son is the same. He recently discovered the wonders of grass. Touching it, ripping it out, trying to eat it, a world of possibilities.
If you need a laugh today, enjoy this video of Fisher laughing like crazy at our dog Jackson. He did this for about ten minutes before I started filming. What was Jackson doing that was so funny? Most of the time he was just laying in his bed. I wish I could be so easily entertained.
May your 2012 be filled with joy, love, laughter, and family.
I guess it is time to baby proof. He is 7 months old today and scooting backwards all over the place. I’m sure he will get the forward motion figured out soon and then we will really be in trouble.
Today our boy is five months old, so I’m officially a month behind. Here he is at four months. Don’t you just want to squeeze him? A random lady at the Texas State Fair asked how many tickets it would cost to take a bite of those baby thighs. I was a bit creeped out, but still flattered.
Fisher is growing and changing and doing new things every day. He is laughing and really responding to us now. He discovered his feet and likes to chew on his toes. He has started soothing himself by sucking on his thumbs and sometimes his whole hand.
At his four month check up he weighed 18.2 pounds, putting him in the 95 percentile for weight. We’ve come a long way since our breastfeeding crisis at 2 weeks old. He is still exclusively breastfeeding and I would say it is working pretty well.
His eyes are still blue with hints of grey and green. As a brown eyed girl married to a blue eyed boy, I hope his eyes stay blue like his daddy’s.
He is losing his soft baby hair and has a wicked mullet developing in the back. It is still super cute. New hair is starting to come in on top and I think it looks a lot lighter. His daddy and I were both blonde as kids (Jed still is) so I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns a lot lighter.
At his check up he measured at 25 1/4 inches long, in the 75 percentile. He also measured off the charts for cuteness.
He has started really grabbing things this month, so we are having to be more careful. He likes holding on to his toys and then putting them straight in his mouth. I bought him an exersaucer (we call it his office) at a consignment sale, and he loves it. I bring it into the kitchen while I’m cooking and he plays happily. He is also loving his Bumbo chair right now.
Our boy is changing so much, doing new things daily. We have both been sick this week, and I had 2 big YL events that totally overwhelmed me. It was a beautiful afternoon and we are both feeling better, so we spent sweet time on a blanket in the yard.
Today I am thankful for glorious fall weather, my sweet baby’s smiles and giggles, and blanket time outside on a lovely afternoon. I want to take time to be thankful for my life, and all the little things that make it good. I think it will help my attitude, which has been a bit of a struggle as of late.
