Time is flying, and you are getting bigger every second. You have such an amazing personality, and I feel so privileged to watch it unfold more and more each day. I can tell that you're going to be a flirt, and you love to ham it up for people, but only when you're in the mood. You have the most adorable smile I've ever seen, and, I have to admit, you have a pretty adorable "old poot" face, too.
You're still working really hard on finding your thumb full time, but I've caught you a few times on the monitor sucking away. You also have decided to enjoy your pappy when your thumb isn't cooperating. I introduced you to your "wubbie" this month. It's basically a stuffed animal with a soft blanket attached to it. You love it more than I thought you would. It's melts my heart to see you rub on its ears when you're going to sleep. You get that from your daddy. He still picks at fabrics when he's tired. Occasionally, you also try to eat your "wubbie". I don't think he minds, though.
You officially moved to the 8 oz bottles this month. It made me sad to pack away your little bottles because everything seems to be happening so quickly. We also started adding rice cereal to your night time bottle to help with that mean, old reflux of yours. You seem to enjoy it, and I'm pretty partial to it, also, because you're sleeping like a champ after that last bottle. I'm probably going to jinx myself by typing this, but, lately, you've been sleeping through the night! This mommy is so grateful to have long periods of sleep again!
You're talking up a storm these days, and I love when you mimic my sounds. The other day you did a half roll, and I was overcome with pride at how advanced you are. My heart may burst when you actually completely roll over. I've decided you're a genius.
I hope you know that I'll always think you're the smartest, cutest boy in the world. "As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be."
