This month is supposedly significant because he has now been out of the womb as long as he was in it. But to be completely honest, I am rather unaffected by that sentiment...crazy considering I am a self-professed sentamentalist.
Little G's latest accomplishments include 'rooting' his hands to his side when he is sitting up and pushing himself around so that he can pivot himself to face any direction he wants. Eventually this rooting will lead him into a crawling position, but I really don't want to rush that since I am quite enjoying being able to put him down and have him still be in the same place when I go to pick him up a few minutes later.
He definitely chews his food now instead of just trying to swallow whatever he has gnawed off the bone all at once.
And he has discovered and is trying to master the art of throwing. He'll throw anything from a small plastic ball, to a burp cloth, to the wood rings from his stacking toy.
In swim class he has really progressed. He will jump/fall off the side of the pool into the water, he splashes his hands while he kicks, he actually kicks when on his back and sometimes we can get him to blow a raspberry in the water! So cute.
We're looking forward to finding out how much he weighs these days...our best guess is somewhere around 23-24 lbs.
