things we've been learning about our little:
you still move and play with your hands all the time, pointing, smacking, punching, fiddling. in the past few weeks you've started to ball up your tiny baby fists more often [especially when you eat] and make rock 'em sock 'em robot swings with your arms combined with frank the tank shoulder movements. it is precious.
you're smiling a lot more, instead of crying whenever you're awake you have pretty long awake periods where you just look around and investigate. in the morning and early afternoon are your happiest times. but your smile is elusive, or i'm slow... i can never capture it on film - i have to get better at that! i need pictures of this adorable little face.
you make awesome faces when you sleep, i wish we had a time lapse camera on you - it would be hilarious. the grins, frowns, & brows are just incredible. we laugh with [not at] you all the time.
you've been on an adventure to your first leader weekend (only for a few hours, 45 minutes away), went to your first wedding and rehearsal, visited lots of friends and fam, ran our first errands alone together. you even had your very first baby cold at 5 weeks old. it broke momma's heart to hear your little pug noises through your stuffy, runny nose.
we love you little squish. you are a beautiful, strong little snuggle monster. you are so precious to us.
