today i am five months old! Can you believe it?! It has been a wild few months, and I have grown and learned so much! Just in the last month, I have learned so very many things and seen even more new places than before! It is so fun to see new places, watch new people and learn things I didn't know before. I have five accomplishments that I am very proud of and would like to write down now so that I can remember when I learned them.
The first new thing I can do is sit up all on my own. I think sitting up is so much fun. I don't know why I still have to lay on the floor so often. I wish I could sit up all the time. But, sometimes, I get tired.
The second thing I can do now is grab toys now and wave them around. I think they are heavy, but it is fun to hear the rattle and squeak. I also really like to hear the sound they make when I throw them on the floor.
I think every item I find needs to be first) touched, second) chewed, third) banged against something to see what noise it makes, and fourth) thrown as far as I can to see exactly how heavy it is.
The third new thing I can do now is raise my head off the floor while on my tummy. I started to be able to do this last month, but now I can do it much better and for much longer.
I think I am good enough at lifting my head that I feel comfortable reaching for things with one hand while I lift myself with the other. It won't be long before I am moving around, but for right now I can only reach things that are as close to me as my arm is long.
The fourth thing I can do now is drool. And man am I good at this! I can really produce a lot of drool. Then, when I smile, it all drips onto my shirt. I think it is funny, until I am soaking wet. Then I want new clothes cause wet clothes make me cold!
Seriously, isn't that so so cool?
The fifth thing, and by far the most important news, is that I have feet now! It is AMAZING! I can touch them whenever I want, but sometimes they have socks on.
And you know what. feet are my favorite of all my toys. I can put them in my mouth and it is fun to suck on them. I can kick them, I can hold them, and mommy can tickle them. Life is great now that I have them. Or found them. Or whatever. I LOVE my feet!
So there you are. I have learned five new things in the last 31 days and I am proud of myself. Mama and Papa are pretty darn proud of me too. Now we are working on standing and walking and talking. Did you know I have an extra person at home to take care of me? She is never far away and I love to grab her and feel how soft she is. I don't want her to feel left out, so here is a picture of her.
I have a lot to say, but now it is my bedtime. I hope I can write again soon!!!
