Squish has really figured out how to grab onto things and hold on over the past week or so. He likes grabbing at his jungle friends on his activity mat and loved his new rattle grandma got him until the dogs chewed it into a million pieces. I immediately ordered a new one!
We’re working on tummy time. It’s not his favorite, but we’ve gone from screaming after only 30 seconds to being able to make it 10 minutes with only a little crying. He’d much prefer to hold his head up while lying on you or while sitting up!
- He had his first modeling gig. A photographer friend needed a baby model. I’m so excited to see how the rest of the pics turned out!
- We used the infant insert for the Ergo for the last time! He’s graduated to being in it without the insert and it’s going well!
- The Buckeyes won the National Championship, which was awesome. He rocked his “Born a Buckeye” onsie!
- I’ve committed to working on my Pinterest game for the blog. It’s a daunting process and it’s taking forever but I think it’ll be worth it.
- I ordered 5 boxes of girl scout cookies. They can’t come soon enough.
- We bought a new printer. It’s wireless….also known as life-changing.
- We went out to dinner with my in-laws on Friday night. Squish did great!
- We’re working on sitting in the bumbo. He’s getting better each day!
Nature is beautiful!
