84 days big
Our Bubs is quickly rounding out his third month. I feel like he was just born and now we’re just weeks away from Mother’s Day in May. Nate and I keep remarking about how fun he is now. We had a rough adjustment to having an infant in the house but now I think it’s safe to say that the infant is gone and we’ve got a full fledged baby on our hands. He’s trying to stand all day long. He loves to sit up and while he can’t completely do it on his own, he’s starting to be able to balance himself for longer stretches. He fell over in the grass the other day and experienced gravity for the first time in his life… he wasn’t a big fan. He LOVES to be outside and will stare at trees with his eyebrows raised up high. In fact, most of the time that he’s looking at things he’s got his eyebrows raised up high. They have quickly become his defining feature and his visitors are instantly smitten by them. His eyes still have not decided on which color they would like to be. Most of the time they are an olive gray/green but every now and then they’ll start to glow with golden brown flecks. He looks best in the same colors that Nate looks best in: gray, dark blue, faded green, olive. He’s trying to hold his bottle but hasn’t really started to grab for things other than our fingers or his blanket. We can see the white tops of a few tiny teeth making their way through his gums and he never stops chewing on his hands and drooling all over my shoulder. He’s started sleeping through the night and takes multiple naps every day. He’s a fantastic sleeper, he loves to sleep. I think he inherited that trait from us. We’ve heard him laugh and spend our free time trying to make him smile at us. Big cheeked, squinty eyed, and gummy… those smiles are the best. Onward and upward!
