Instead of my usual Week in Review post, I wanted to do an Elliott update, since my little guy is SIX MONTHS OLD. I can't believe how fast this time has gone by! I know all moms say that, but it really feels like just a couple of months ago we were still in the hospital and our tiny little man was just 3lbs. We aren't sure exactly what he weighs (appt on Wednesday), but I know it's over 12lbs. Crazy!
Some fun facts about Elliott:
-He rolls front-to-back now, right on schedule for being 2 months behind.
-He loves The Belly Button Book by Sandra Boynton. Something about that "bee-bo" that has him giggling.
-He gives us belly laughs when he's tickled and thinks his dad is hysterical.
-If he's upset, all Dad needs to do is sing "Piano Man" and the tears stop.
-He sleeps through the night in 11 hour stretches and takes 2-3 naps a day. It's awesome...other moms, be jealous.
-He tries to hold his bottle, loves to chew on his toes, and thinks getting undressed is the silliest thing.
-I think teething is in full-swing, despite the lack of teeth.
-He LOVES being outside. Another instant soother.
-He makes the BEST facial expressions. Everyone says how expressive he is and what an easy-going personality he has.
-He is a fantastic snuggler, loves his dogs, and is honestly the greatest gift I've ever received.
Our sweet boy charms everyone that meets him and his smile lights up a room. I'm so blessed to have him and can't wait to see what the next six months bring.
