Sweet boy –
The past 3 months have just flown by, and this week we celebrated your first Thanksgiving! Both sets of your grandparents, Aunt S and Uncle B, and Uncle J were here yesterday, and they were all so excited to see you!
You smile and laugh much more now, which I love. You’re even smiling when you wake up in the morning! This month has been full of other milestones too, including spending your first night away from Mommy and Daddy! Poppy and Grandma took care of you, and they said you did GREAT! (But we missed you so much!!) You can now hold your head up and do a mini-pushup like a pro. You also rolled over for the first time the other day! You seemed very confused by it though, so I think it was an accident…but you’ve been trying to do it again, so it’s only a matter of time before you’re on the move!
I’m looking forward to this next month! It’s your first holiday season, and I’m going to spend every second I can with you (since it’s my last month as a SAHM…*sadface*)
I love you, little guy! You mean the world to me!
