This month, you’ve discovered that you have toes. I know it probably sounds really silly for this to be some kind of milestone, but it’s just another step in the process of you discovering your surroundings (even if they’re attached to yourself). It’s adorable to watch you grip your tiny little feet and the look of pride that washes over your face as you wiggle around and try to get those pesky things in your mouth. As cute as it is, it’s also made diaper changing a bit challenging. Guess that’s just your way of making sure that we fine tune our skills.
Speaking of discoveries and movement, you’re rolling now. I’ll lay you down on your back for you to just flip almost instantly to your belly and then proceed to do that as much as it takes to get to whatever toy or shiny object catches your eye. Our days of being able to set you down and know you’ll be there 2 minutes later are now fading quickly.
We’ve also experimented with some solid food. Rice cereal. It’s as appetizing as it sounds. You seemed to like it, at first. But, it’s caused some problems, so we’re scrapping it for now and doing some research on some other options that won’t require me calling the doctor at 9pm because you won’t stop throwing up and handing you off to your groggy Dad so I can run to the store to get Pedialyte. As scary as it sounds, yes, sometimes we’re just making this up as we go along and hoping for the best.
Just when I think you can’t possibly be any cuter, you totally prove me wrong. I never used to be a morning person (and arguably still am not), but I can honestly say that I look forward to getting up every morning and seeing what new discovery you’ve made.
