My how you have changed in the past month. I am starting to notice that you are losing that infant look in your face and it kinda makes me sad to know that you are growing up so fast. I am not quite sure how big you are right now since we don't go back to the doctor until next month but I could guess you are probably at or over 20 pounds now. You are currently wearing a size 3 diaper and 9-12 month clothes.
Speaking of getting bigger, we have had to retire the bouncer, swing, and your infant car seat. I really thought these would last longer but you just grew too fast for your own good. Not having the swing has changed how you go to bed. Before, if you were being fussy we could always put you in the swing and you would fall asleep that way. Now, it's a little different. I usually sing and rock you a bit and then lay you down in your crib when you start to settle down. I now don't even try to lay you on your back because you will immediately flip over to your tummy.

You still are not really a fan of tummy time which is odd because you will now only sleep on your stomach. However, you are now strong enough to get on your hands and knees and start rocking back and forth. It is only a matter of time until you start crawling. You can scoot backwards but you haven't figured out how to go forward yet.

My how you have become a talker lately. You talk the most in the morning and when you are getting changed. You are starting to make all new sounds which is really exciting. You have also learned to squeal when you get really happy which makes me laugh every time. What gets you the most vocal is Sampson. You are constantly trying to reach out to him and when he and daddy plays you just laugh and laugh.
