your tiny, pudgy fingers are perfection. you like to do a lot with your hands. you stare at them when you're laying on your back, you fold them like you're praying, touch your face and rub your tiny baby eyes, you like to feel along my face and your poppa's scruffy beard. you like to rub your hand along my shirts and sweaters to feel the different textures and now you grab at things that you want to hold like dolls, rings and toys. you love love love to hold hands. my favorite is when you're trying to fall asleep and you let your little fingertips tap each other real sweetly.
you're very alert and curious, always checking things out. this has made eating a little...interesting. if anything is going on around you, you want to be a part of it. you hold your head up like a big girl and stare all around. you follow us around the room even when we're far away.
|your reaction when i chant "Ohhh C-A-T-S, CATS! CATS! CATS!|
speaking of squeals, you have all kinds of words and stories now. you have super high pitch squeals and loooong grunts [hilarious]. you like to babble a lot and when you're not babbling fake works you move your mouth like you're talking with no sound.
you also decorated your first christmas tree. we can't wait to teach you all about what christmas is all about. i'm going to read you the christmas story before bed each night i think. it that excessive?
my husband and daughter = the most asian, non-asians in existence. how precious are they? this is not staged, this is just real life.
|2.5 months vs. 3.5 months - you're so big!|
you really like toys now. you play on your activity mat and love all the things that you can bat around. i surround you with toys [newest addition, mr. crinkle-feet] and you're usually really content. you love things that you can grab or that make noise. we've also tried out your bumbo and you seem to enjoy that pretty well! you're definitely in the stage now where everything you reach for goes in your mouth so i think baby-proofing needs to begin now.
you're in 6 month clothes and are kind of pushing it in those if they have feet. you still wear a few 3 month things - but i think momma is really stretching it...literally. you wear size two diapers but are about a pound away from being out of those too. it has gotten really cold here, really really cold so i've gotten to dress you in lots of sweaters, bundle you in blankets and keep you in socks, which you always seem to wiggle out of. babies in sweaters are ridiculous, and perfect.
|well hello there cutie pie!|
i've taken pictures of you each month in your room in hopes of capturing how you've grown from month to month. i've planned on putting them on here each time but have continued to default to camera pics because it's so darn easy and picking from 40 pictures instead of 1,000 seems easier. i hope to post some of your darling little face so very soon.
psalm 63:3], and most definitely superior to what this world has to offer. you are a doll and we love watching you grow. you are a great joy in our home.
