Merry Christmas!

Wrapping paper is too loud for Dash...a little frightening.  But he liked what was inside.

We wish you a merry (frightening) Christmas!

he thought he could eat or slobber his way through the wrapping paper.

4th month

Recap of Dash's fourth month of life.

practicing smiles

Got dressed up for a Christmas party.

made a new friend
we don't use the Bumbo a whole lot, so he always kind of looks surprised when he's in it.

He has some hair growing in...still not sure what color it is.
His eyelashes are getting long.
He sits up very well, with pretty good head control.
He's reaching and grabbing and trying to put everything in his mouth when his fingers aren't in there.
He grabs things, using his index and middle finger to hold them (instead of a thumb and index finger like everyone else)
Interacts with himself in the mirror.
Did his first deep laugh.
Enjoys baths, books, mirrors, slobbering, and eating.
Sometimes he likes tummy time, when he asks to be rolled over.
He can roll from his back onto his side and balance there.  Hasn't made it the whole way over yet.
Has learned that screaming and loud high-pitched noise is fun, both when happy and sad.  

3rd Month

Recap of Dash's third month of life:

wearing shorts in November still...

 first facial hair

exersaucer wore him out

first flight - he looks so underwhelmed and unimpressed.  He was very interested in the plane's seat belt buckle so that was wiped down with several disinfecting. wipes.
his faces crack me up

2nd Month

Before I begin his 2nd month photos I finally got the videos working.  Here's one at 1-day old, in the hospital popping his mouth.

Recap of Dash's 2nd month:

bundling up for his first walk in his new sweet stroller.  sun was low so he needed the sunglasses.
