There is such a sweet excitment about Káel this month. When I stand him up on my lap, facing me and look into his little face, his eyes seem to understand and realize more than they used to. There are glimmers of a mischievous little excitement behind his adorable smile. He's changing from my little baby to my little buddy. He officially crawls now and pulls himself up on his knees. (That's his favorite thing right now, the knees.) I can be across the room and if I stop, say his name and stretch out my arms, motioning him to come to momma, he gets THE biggest smile on his face and scoots/crawls right over to me! I seriously have the friendliest, happiest baby. With the exception of about 3 stranger anxiety situations, he loves everybody and is a total flirt.
We do have some recent new developments. Pinching. Pinching has become a problem that we are trying to survive (especially Sam's beard) and "gentle" is probably the most used word in our house with him this month. haha. He's just intensely excited about being able grab things, but I do have a couple scratches on my face. One fabulous thing is that Káel has been sleeping through the WHOLE night, every night since we came home from Dallas. He goes down to sleep around 8:30pm and wakes up around 8:30am. Sam and I are in sleeping heaven! I don't know what to do with myself!
My little sweetie still loves to eat anything that we give him. The past couple of weeks, he has been huffing and puffing from excitement before we give him each bite. He is definitely my child, utterly elated about the littlest thing. I can't get enough of his little voice and his little baby thoughts that he tries to tell me about with his eyes and body language. It can't get any better than this!
Forest boy is also starting to live up to his name. He LOVES, loves, loves being outside and watching me point out each thing that we see. We'll spend half a day in our backyard, on a sheet with a few toys and some music. And, his little legs have gotten a golden tan glow from all our walks, it's so cute!
Once again, Káel is happily obsessed with his little piano below. THE coolest toy ever. His sweet set of little threads are from:
