He wakes up 5-6 times a night...he had been doing pretty well, waking 2-3 times, then he got a cold...then the time change hit...and we are just now getting back to a few less than 5 times. And his big sister is finally being night weaned. Hallelujah.
Thayer is growing up too fast. He has been saying "boo" for at least a month, and he loves it that we "get" what he's saying. He gets all tickled when he says it and we say it back.
He also had been waving by flapping his entire arm, but then as he watched Gramma wave the other day with just her hand, he inspected his hand and began opening and closing his fist. Then tried it with the other hand. And then laughed heartily at his accomplishment. Since then he's been waving at us every time we say "hi".
He plays "peek-a-boo" with his shirt. He'll lift it over his face and dramatically pull it down, rewarding any and all reactions he gets with a big hearty laugh. It also works with blankets or anything else that happens to cover his face.
He's also been "blowing kisses". After he waves he smashes his chubby little palm to his lips and blows raspberries.
Watching a baby grow and develop is like witnessing a miracle. It blows my mind every day. I love it.
