Sweet boy –
You are growing up so fast! Lately, you are very determined to move. (I assume you are trying to keep up with your big brother!) Rocking on your hands and knees, scooting backwards across the floor. You’ll be crawling in no time!
The jumperoo is your favorite toy overall, but you’ve started grasping smaller toys and putting them in your mouth. Pacifiers are a thing of the past. You’d much rather chew on your hands. You also just recently discovered your feet, though you’re not terribly interested in them just yet.
You smile any time you hear your dad’s voice, and big brother always makes you laugh. Such a happy little guy! I’m so excited to see what the next month brings!
I love you!
