Hoo boy, have we been busy with our two littes. We've started to settle into life with our sweet peanut and we're all in love.
Have you seen a monthly picture with a sleeping babe? Not on this blog you haven't. But this boy actually likes to sleep.
He is such a happy, smiley (not so) little guy. He loves to laugh and coo at everyone and loves to get attention from his big sister. And oh she loves to snuggle him.
Our peanut is growing and growing and interacting more and more with us and his environment. On his two month birthday he rolled over from belly to back for the first time and did it twice more over the next couple days. He's currently taking a break from that skill and hasn't repeated it once, even by accident. Today, just a couple days shy of his four month birthday, he rolled from back to belly and got stuck that way. Hopefully he'll relearn the belly roll and we'll have proper rolling going on (in both directions).
The peanut has also been getting better and better at holding things in his hands and has been putting everything in his mouth and drooling. It looked an awful lot like teething but I didn't believe it because its too early for that. So, of course, last week not one, but two bottom teeth pushed their way through his gumline. That'll show me!
Last week was a big week for us because poor Mr. Peanut also got his first illness. Bronchiolitis--the same virus our bean caught for her first illness. Not my first choice but I guess I have no say in the matter. We have tried very hard to keep the peanut healthy and, with an older child in school, I think we did pretty well to ward it off for almost four months. Luckily, it seemed to be fairly mild and the Peanut is recovering well. Hopefully we can make it through the rest of the flu season without too many more illnesses (for any of us!)
