I have tried my best to take the traditional "in the glider with the giraffe" growth pic, but Wyatt has wanted nothing to do with it the past few days...here are my attempts....at least in the second one he is not screaming.
The funny thing is that Wyatt is a very smiley, talkative and interactive boy, he just freezes up and does his "toad face" whenever a camera turns on. One day I will get a cute photo of him smiling straight at the camera!
We have discovered that we love our jumperoo. Although he is not tall enough to reach the floor yet, we just fix that for now with a pillow. Wyatt has had good neck strength and head control for a long time now. He is now starting to really reach and grab for things and makes contact a lot of times - this will either excite him or frustrate him (if the toy doesn't do what he wants it to).
Here is another new trick - blowing bubbles and drooling. As if we don't have enough stuff coming out of our mouth with spitting up all the time...now we have spit. Daddy and Mommy don't mind the spit or bubbles though. It is not messy at all compared to the reflux issue.
This past weekend we also had an exciting event - Wyatt got to meet his Aunt Tracy, Uncle Wayne and Cousin Kassidy (so sad Cousin Jordann couldn't come but she is a busy teenager and we will see her this summer for our family beach vacation).
Wyatt was a good boy while they visited and did great going to the park with all the big kids and going out to eat with everyone.
Here is Cousin Kassidy loving on him....from the look on his face, we think he might be starting to notice that he is surrounded by crazy girls. :)
Wyatt brings more and more joy into our house everyday, and I feel so privileged to be able to spend my days at home with him, taking care of him and watching him reach all his milestones.
