what a crazy month!
you handled it like a champ. graduation celebrations, a wedding, a mini vacation (your first), mother’s day, baseball games, pictures – lots of pictures, bubbles, house showings, training runs, new foods. ok, so some of those are mine.
you’re also so wiggly and expressive. you’ve discovered your toes and recently started banging things – your left hand is the most dominant – you bang on mommy and daddy while we feed you, on your bed, in the bath, on your highchair tray. those arms seems to flap constantly, especially when your in between toys or simply need to make some noise. we think you like the noise and when it’s loud that makes you squeal.
as it relates to your personality it’s clear that you are a social being. you enjoy when others are around and hate being alone. you don’t need the attention of others all the time you simply like to see them and know they are there. you are particularly captivated by allie these days. at daycare you still continue to ‘chat’ with the other babies and generally smile when being swept up and held by anyone.
you are intense! your cries, coos and yells always indicate something in particular and elevate with your level of urgency, frustration or happiness. most of the time the latter.
toes!! so many toes! 10 to be exact (two webbed (sobotka trait) and 1 crooked (sorry baby that one’s from yo mamma)). when you discovered your toes is was the best day. they regularly make their way to your mouth and each time you find them it’s like the first time.
perhaps the biggest development this month has been your ability to sit unassisted. you started out pretty wobbly, now you’ve nearly mastered it. you still have moments when you topple over (see accident report below) but for the most part your are able to manage reaching for toys and toes without falling over. the boppy has certainly come in handy for this developmental stage!
you are still wearing some 3-6 month duds though in the last week alone we’ve started transitioning into 6 month outfits. this is mostly due to the fact that you are so round! six month clothes are still too long but they fit you perfectly around your mid section. shorts are capris and long sleeves need rolled. it’s too cute! according to daddy – you are ‘fit’, just like he was as a baby.
i’ve noticed your eyes after recently getting a couple comments – they are SO blue and seem to get deeper in color by the day. on a related note, you love wearing your sunglasses and that makes this mommy happy. when they do go on the rims mess with your depth perception and we often find you reaching out as if to grab something then you quickly figure out its nothing when you adjust your focus. ;o) you are the cutest!
carson, you are our greatest blessing and i’m so fortunate to be your mommy! stay my little boy forever, okay?!
