I feel like he's doing an impersonation of Joey from Friends - "how you doin?"
Of course there were outtakes . . .
Weight - 13 pounds 5 ounces
Height - 61 centimeters
Likes - shutters are still #1, laps around the house, moving (in the pram or baby bjorne), and playing games with his mouth (lightly touching the sides or moving his bottom lip), bunny kisses from his bunny rattle and staring at his new mobile (Christmas gifts from his grandparents).
Dislikes - being cold after a shower/bath and not getting his way (seriously the lil man knows what he wants to do all day every day)
He went furniture shopping (slept the whole time) and spent a week with the grandparents over Christmas. He was really good being in a new environment, and started putting himself to sleep. He had his first picture with Santa & celebrated his first Christmas.
He went to the Gisborne market (slept the whole time). He also had his first sleepover at Auntie Chelsea's house for New Year's Eve while the Hubs and I went to a wedding (where he slept for 8.5hrs for the first time - the jerk!).
New changes this month:
He sleeps for 6 hours most nights, and we even had a few 8 hours in the last week. We also gave him his first pacifier tonight, but I'm not sure if we'll keep using it (he was a big fan, although it took him awhile to figure it out and he kept spitting it out accidentally). We get smiles and giggles daily, which melt my heart!
He's also able to hold things (like tiny, adorable rattles). He obviously thinks he's the #1 baby in the world for mastering this skill. I did tell him he was the #1 first born baby in our family . . . haha.
Thoughts on the month:
I love making him smile, and I feel as though I'm starting to get to know him and his different cries. I breastfed in public for the first time. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Off to sleep (for who knows how long),
