You are finally starting to wake up a bit and enjoy the things around you. Smiles abound and you really like for us to be looking at you so that we can exchange the smiles. You are making all kinds of happy noises and cooing sounds which is so good to hear from you. These days you really enjoy conversation and respond to our voices, all of them, even Jack and Hannah who seem to adore you. Which is great because one of them in particular loves to tell you everything.
You are starting to enjoy your play mat rather than tolerate it, you love the fan in mom and dad's room, you like the tv (we were hoping to discourage this one for awhile), you like the swing, and your bumbo chair. Most days you are waking up around 5:30 AM...but your Dad gets up with you, takes you down stairs, and you go right back to sleep in the swing for a few more hours. During the day you are alternating your increasingly more awake time with a few naps in the swing, and then go to sleep each night in your hammock around 8 or 8:30. You wake up one time to eat before your 5:30 internal alarm clock.
We are still dealing with the reflux but it doesn't seem to be bothering you as much as it was. You continue to be pretty flexible as we cart you all around to picnics in Denver, hikes through the woods, strolls around the neighborhood, etc. You are still enjoying your time in the Ergo carrier but have also started to enjoy some time facing out in the Moby wrap. Your biggest new accomplishment is that you have started to sit with us during some meals in your bumbo...which we love, because we love having you in our family!
