a note about the giant giraffe; he was a gift from our favorite photographer
H. They had it for their grandson when
he was little. He has slightly outgrown
it, and when she found out our theme was also safari she gave it to us. It hung out at the photo studio for a while,
but we are finally driving our minivan (well, soon to be ours) and was able to
get it home without putting a kink in its neck.
for an update, I’m still slightly battling the blues, but slowly getting
better. Sometimes I still have emotional
relapses, but not nearly as bad as it had gotten.
is growing so quickly. We purged his
wardrobe of a box of clothes he had outgrown, and replenished from our totes of
stored clothes. His head is stable when
he is upright. He still loves to
stand. He is starting to get the hang of
the exersaucer, but mostly can`t quite reach the toys to play with them yet,
but he loves that he is upright and able to look around. Yesterday he finally started rolling. So far he can roll from his back to his
side. His tummy time is getting better,
when he is up for it. He can lift his
head quite well now, and I imagine rolling will come soon. He is starting to try and push himself up on
his arms, so crawling is coming around the corner soon enough.
loves some playpen time to pull at the wonky wigglers that are on a string and
vibrate back up when pulled. When he
first couldn`t quite get a good grasp, he lifted his legs to be able to push
against them to be able to get a good grasp on the legs of the wigglers, now he
does a combination of that and just able to grab the legs, even though they
dangle and he needs coordination to grab them and not push them away.
is still slightly up for debate, but Deb is convinced he is teething. In the afternoon he doesn`t want to eat and
gets very irritable. The other day we
crushed up some ice and put it in a cloth.
He really enjoyed munching on that for a moment at a time. So I`m coming around to the fact he might be
teething, even though we can`t feel anything that is trying to come
through. His gums are just so small it
is hard to believe teeth will be coming through them soon.
is a photo we got when we went to the zoo last weekend. He actually stayed awake for the whole
visit. Lots of fun.
