Dear Miss Cheeks,
You are now 16 weeks old, and your cheeks…oh those scrumptious, kissable, cheeks…your cheeks grow every day it seems, and your Daddy and I can’t get enough of them!
You are starting to giggle a little bit more…but only on special occasions, and it’s usually for your Daddy. You loooove when he plays airplane with you. You also love snuggling close at bedtime, and usually we’ll let you for a little bit before it’s time for us to sleep and we try to move you to the co-sleeper or to your swing. You just look so cute and tiny in our big bed, though not nearly as tiny as you used to be.
You have definitely found your hands, and you are constantly sucking on your hand, clasping your hands together, and starting to grab for things. You are also a drooling machine, so you get many outfit changes a day. It’s a good thing you have so many adorable outfits to wear. 🙂 You’ve been a Momma’s girl lately, too, and want to be held by me all.the.time. I can’t say I mind!
You are definitely interacting more and more with the world around you and smiling at everyone. This week is also the first time I’ve seen you notice the dog. Chief was playing with his rope in the living room, and you just watched him in awe for a couple of minutes. It was pretty darn cute to see you just locked in on him. 🙂
Also, your Auntie Jaime sent me this picture of you last Friday, holding your own bottle up. What in the world, child?! You are WAY too small to be doing that crazy stuff. I guess she holds your hands on it all the time as a joke, and that time you just decided to keep them there and hold it up yourself. So strong!
Love you so much, my Stells Bells. It was another great week in paradise….
