Grins & Giggles

Michael began smiling on purpose last week. Now he does these big ear-to-ear giggles that we just adore! He is a very happy baby, and we are so blessed in many respects. He sleeps about 7 hours at night, which isn't too bad for 7 weeks! I have been trying to capture a picture of him smiling, but he always gets leery when he sees the camera. I think the flash bugs him. I will post more pictures soon!

A Few Things We Love About Michael

Michael is 6 weeks now, and he sure is growing at an amazing rate. It is so hard to see him growing out of the newborn stage and into babyhood. He officially weighs 12 pounds already & Dr Aaronson confirmed that he definitely is a big boy! Jon, who always said that he couldn't wait until he was big enough to play with and to "throw," was lamenting yesterday. It seems like he changes so much that just when we start to love the stage he is in, he enters another one. It is exciting, but kinda sad, too. Michael got shots this week, so was a bit crabby earlier in the week, but is now back to his cuddly, mellow self. I will post more pictures soon, so you can see how big he is getting.

Here are a few things that we just love about Michael:
1) The way he sighs & smacks his lips after a big yawn
2) The way his little tongue flails when he is screaming
3) The way his chin quivers when you comfort him
4) The way he cuddles so snugly
5) The way he crosses his eyes when he is looking at you so intently
6) The way he cranes his neck looking around when he hears daddy's voice
7) The way he smells after a bath
8) The way he growls for no reason (even in church! I think it was an "amen!")
I could go on and on. Kids are just about the best thing in the world!
