Hello Family and Friends!
It’s been 2 months since my last posting? Time flies, it’s crazy. So I am sure you’re all waiting for an update and some new pictures. Well… Most important thing: I’ve been pretty healthy over the last weeks (I am sure my mom will say “great, you jinxed it”) and whenever I am healthy, I am happy! I mastered so many different things lately that it’s almost impossible to list them all. I’ll try anyways:
Food: For a while now I am not only drinking out of a bottle, I also eat a lot of other yummy stuff. I started with apples and pears (still love it) but now it’s like being in a restaurant. “Apple Turkey Cranberry”, “Chicken & Brown Rice”, “Summer Vegetable”, “Bananas, Peaches and Raspberries”, “Apples and Apricots” – just to name a few – delicious! And the best: I even get dessert. Puffs that melt in my mouth – awesome. Which brings me to #2…
Motor Skills: It took me a while to figure it out but now I can pick up pretty much everything I can find. Mom’s phone, all my great toys, mom’s necklace (haha) and pretty much everything that is in reach, especially when mom and dad don’t pay attention for a second – so much fun! Since I’m a little lazy and I’m not really in the mood to crawl or walk yet I had to figure out another way to get around the house, get to my toys I threw away seconds earlier and chase my little “sister” Lulu. So how do I do it? I bounce! Since I’m wearing diapers and I’m also a little chubby I can bounce on my bud. It takes me a little while to get where I want but hey: if it’s too exhausting I’ll just yell at mom and dad and they always pick me up.
Passion for water: I LOVE WATER! Shower time with mom is my favorite time of the day. Mom and dad keep making me laugh nonstop and knocking against the shower glass door is my new favorite thing. And it get’s even better: Gangy and Pop-Pop bought me my own pool! And since it’s been quite warm lately I can splash as much as I want every weekend.
Modeling: Well… at least for my parents. Even though I am sure the hundreds of pictures they take every day should be enough, I had my first photo shoot at daycare. The pictures turned out great, they are now hanging at home on the wall. Oh and talking about looking good on pictures: some babies at daycare look funny. They have no hair! Well… I got enough for all of them out there… so much that my parents thought I needed my first hair cut! They are clearly not professionals but they did a surprisingly good job. Check out the last picture in the gallery!
Some other interesting things are about to happen soon as well. My parents keep on checking out my mouth and they always say that the swelling get’s bigger and it looks like something will come out soon. Not sure what they are talking about but since they are worried about me keeping them up all night I thought it might be a good idea to train them a little. Day 1: Wake up at 12 and stay awake with daddy until 1.30. Day 2: Let’s do it again! Day 3: Let’s change it up and let’s do 12.30 for an hour. Day 4: Exhausting, I need a break and daddy get’s boring too. So let’s change it up again and do 3:50 – yay – it worked! It’s mom this time. Need to keep them on their toes.
What else is new? Oh yeah: we have a new ride! Daddy got rid of his ugly looking car and got me a new one. So much more enjoyable! Lets hope he takes good care of it, I should be able to drive on my own soon.
I am sure mom will say “You forgot to mention half of all the exciting things…” – I know! But I need more exciting stories to tell next time! So I’ll get back to practicing on my vocabulary… “Dadada”, “Mamama”, “Bababa”, “Eggiiiii”!!!
