So another month has passed, it's just amazing what time is like with a baby! We continue to love every minute with our handsome boy. He loves to smile & is such a happy guy (though he does get his point across when he's hungry or tired). He's starting to play with toys a lot more & is getting better at it. He grabs for anything nearby & is figuring out that his hands & fingers are good for something other than munching on, though he still loves to fit as many as he can in his mouth. I finally moved him to his crib at night, instead of just during the day time naps. That was more of a mom convenience factor than him not being ready. Plus we've had a break through in the sleeping department, after a week of sleeping through the night (a good 6-7 hours in a row) I finally started putting him down much earlier. Last night he went to bed at 8:15 without a single peep . . . I couldn't believe it, what have we been doing . . . let the boy sleep already!!!!! Though he did "peep" tonight I now know that his bedtime can be normal & he will benefit from the extra hours (so will mom & dad :>). We are so grateful for his bright smiles, squeezable cheeks, & inquisitive looks!
