Big Boy

I just put Will down for a nap in his crib and went in to check on him about 10 minutes later and this is what I found. He wasn't fully asleep when I put him in there but he usually falls asleep pretty fast if he's drowsy. I picked him up and he got upset so I wrapped his blanket around him, turned on his mobile, and put him back in there. He seems pretty content so far! He's such a big boy! He also wore his first real outfit (a onesie with a collar) to church today, but he had an accident in it before I could take a picture. It's in the dryer now so I may have to put it back on him later just to take a picture.

Here are a few other things I want to remember about him right now:
  • He finally reached 8 pounds this week!
  • He is starting to leak out of his Newborn diapers more often and they are getting tighter and tighter. So we're moving up to 1's this week (after we run out of the few Newborns we have left). I thought he would never get out of those things.
  • He has become a big time grunter and it is loud! Chris and I will just laugh and laugh at him, but Chris didn't think it was very funny when he started doing it in church today. I guess this is the first time he got kicked out of church (by his daddy). Chris thinks this means he will be a talker.
  • He smiles and even laughs in his sleep. I know it could just be gas, but I like to think he is just really happy....and he has the sweetest smile!
  • I think he is starting to figure out what is going on in the world. He will stare right at me while I'm holding him and sometimes even make faces when I talk to him. I am trying to enjoy this stage, but I really can't wait until he really recognizes us and smiles and interacts with us. I think that will be so much fun!
