Michael's New Jumper

Depending on the day Michael has different toys that he may deem as his favorite. Today his favorite would be his new jumper...


Thank you Grandma Gracie and Grandpa John!

New sleeping position

When Michael goes to sleep he always starts on his back. At some point during the night he rolls over to get into his newest favorite position to sleep in.

...and we need a sideways shot so you can get the cute view of his little butt in the air...

One thing that he continues to struggle with (and therefore we struggle with) is sleeping through the night. He never consistently slept through the night, but for a little while we could at least count on 3 or 4 nights a week. Unfortunately just as those numbers started to increase he got sick...and then we went out of town...and then he got sick again...and then we had company over...and now the poor little guy is just finally getting back into all of his routines. The number of times he gets up during the night is slowly decreasing...but we look forward to the day we can say "we slept 8 hours last night!" Someday...someday.... ;)

Up until now, Michael has been pretty content on rolling around the room to get what he wants. A couple of months ago he started scooting on our bed, but he refused to scoot when he was on the floor. I figured it was because our carpet isn't very soft...He made some progress while the Ridge side of the family was in town, but on Wednesday this week he suddenly started scooting when there were certain things just out of reach. Right now the only things worth scooting towards are cell phones, belts, books, and Jeff's remote control car. Apparently I'm not cool enough to scoot towards unless I have one of those items...


He can actually move a lot faster than this video shows, but the way he kicks his legs a bunch of times to move half an inch in this one makes me I had to share.

And a few pictures for your viewing pleasure ;)

And lets zoom in on the teeth...

And I will admit...he bit me. He hasn't made a habit of it so I'm hoping he's gotten that out of his system :).

I love watching him learn and do new things everyday...and I love what a happy little boy he is. Jonathan and I feel so blessed to have him in our lives...
