Contrary to what the picture above (which was taken right before nap time) might indicate, every week lately is more and more fun with you. You are SO interactive and responsive and CUTE. The random cuddles have continued, and though you refuse to give (or accept) kisses, you’ll offer your forehead to people if you feel like showing affection, which makes your Daddy and I go “awhhhh” every time!
You are getting SO fast at crawling, and this week we finally got a retractable baby gate installed at the top of the stairs to hopefully keep you from tumbling down them. You continue to stand up, let go, and grin at us like “look ma – no hands!” We’re thinking you’ll be walking before you’re 1, but we shall see.
We went in to WIC this week, and when they did your measurements you were up to 21#8oz and 29″ long. That’s up nearly 1.5# in the past month, though your height seems to have leveled out for a bit (thought it is hard as heck to measure you b/c you’re such a squirmy thing!). Your Daddy loves the “rubber band” look on your wrists and ankles lately. 🙂
Also, these past couple of weeks the relationship between you and Chief has really blossomed. He is SO gentle with you, and he’ll bring his tug rope or ball over to you and you’ll actually play with him. I hope you two are BFFs for a long time!
Love you so much my beautiful baby!
