My Baby Bear is 34 weeks now! I can't believe how fast we're approaching 40 weeks! The second 40 weeks goes by twice as fast or more as the first 40 weeks. If only we could reverse that...
Me and my family facetiming in the morning while I pumped. He still doesn't acquaint my photo on his Dad's phone with me. I think he hears my voice and gets confused, but then he just wants to eat the phone. Or the ipad or whatever.
I introduced him to Buddy--a non-fragile friend his size who can be poked, prodded, and explored without any frustrations on Buddy's part. I love that about dolls. Babies can really dig in and discover them because they don't have nerve endings like little sisters or mommies and daddies.
I introduced him to avocados. He wasn't a big fan at first but after that, he liked them. I think he doesn't really care too much about flavor or texture. Food is food.
He likes to suck on the wet washcloth just like his big sister did. It's my best mom discovery ever--let the baby clean up himself and no tears or frustrations on either side.
After the longest most oppressive winter ever, we finally got a break and we were able to go on our first walk since last autumn.
He's a happy boy who loves to laugh and to interact. And chew. Always chew.
And he likes eating my pant legs when he's on the floor and they're within his reach. He does it to his Daddy too.
Laundry is more fun when he gets the freedom to discover the baskets on his own.
We brush our teeth together every night now. He loves it and squeals both when I do the brushing and when I take the brush away from him. It helps his sister, too, to have this routine with us.
He loves giving me things when I make an excited reaction in response to it.
The two of them area always on the floor exploring this cabinet.
He was 6 or 7 weeks old in the top and nearly 8 months old on the bottom.
Who are you up there? Is that really Mommy, cause I'm not sure.
I think he thinks he can stand up.
With Bill and Nina.
Enjoying his food as always.
My cute little nugget in the Mexican restaurant enjoying the feel of my leather wristlet on his gums.
What a dear. I love how he sleeps with his hands to the side.
There are so many fun things to discover in his big sister's room!
He usually doesn't mind when his big sister holds him. He minds it much less than we do, actually.
A fourth tooth has made it's arrival!!! Top right (his right) is here, but you can't really see it like you can see the top left one. That one's currently longer which makes it look like he has a snaggle tooth. He looks dear and strange all at the same time, because getting teeth really changes the shape of a baby's face.
