it’s amazing to see my tiny son learning already. I know that he’s been learning things for a long time now, but to see it in action is pretty cool. not surprisingly, the few things that I’ve observed involve food.
we have him on a relatively regular schedule, which is working out great. after his nap time, it’s time for him to eat. he’s pretty much used to the schedule, so he’ll wake up about the right time for the latest bottle. these days he’ll prop himself on his elbows and start crying. not too loud, but you definitely wouldnt be able to ignore it. anyway, when he hears one of us open the door to come get him, he’ll stop crying and look over at us, as if he knows what’s coming. I guess doing the same thing 5 times a day helps him catch on. he’ll even stop crying and give us a smile. then he remembers how hungry he is and starts wailing again.
anyway, we’re so thankful for how much of a delight he is. he’s starting to interact with toys these days, drawing them close and chewing them and hugging them. too cute. he watches katie more and more, and he loves to cuddle when you hold him close. and he really seems to like the “super baby” game when I hold him high up in the air. I know it’s probably not “manly” but I just love hugging him and kissing him. I could go on and on. and in fact I probably will as the days go on.
we had thanksgiving as well as a bit of early christmas with his grandparents this weekend (he scored some books, toys and clothes). lots of good times of getting some stuff done and relaxing and partaking in lots of yummy food. pictures here.
we’re looking forward to christmas in NC in a few short weeks! michelle headed up the decorating of the living room, and it looks great (see pics at the link above). I love her creativity.
amy grant has already sung “TN christmas” and the tree is lit, so let the holidays begin!
