Twenty Three Weeks Old

Our little man has changed so much this past month. He rolls across the floor often, plays with toys (his favorites are links and cups), and babbles like crazy. His favorite noises to make are motor boat “brrrrrrrr”s and loud excited gasps. He is not sitting up unassisted yet, but is working on it. He enjoys sitting supported in his booster seat at the table.

Since just before Thanksgiving, he has been waking every 2-3 hours at night, which is tough on Mom and Dad. However, he has become a much more efficient nurser, eating for only 10-15 minutes per feeding. He still eats about every 2 hours during the day. His favorite place to nap is now in the Sleepy Wrap, but we have yet to establish a good napping schedule and length.

He really enjoys his bath time, and can soak the entire kitchen floor, and Mom and Dad, during his bath (video). He is just starting to jump in his Jumperoo (video), and loves the gecko ball popper that it attached. He also really likes to stand with the help of Mom or Dad.

He’s 15lbs 3oz now, which means he has outgrown his bassinet; we are transitioning him to his crib, with resistance.

    Ok, Barishnykov move over. Look at those ballet toes on the Jumperoo, even a few turshatees (and I have no idea what I’m spelling or talking about but) I recognize the moves! I love it when the elephant trumpets!

    Splashy bath looks fun! Does it remind you of running through the sprinklers, Becky? Only indoors? Have fun! Keep splashin’ Evan.

    Lots of love, Ree

    You have the kick to become a strong swimmer, Evan! Was it fun to get Mommy all wet? You look absolutely delighted and full of mischief!

    I guess all that dancing on the keyboard at our house is now being done in your jumperoo!
    Soon you will be jumping on the trampoline with me! Hugs and kisses from Grandma Barby and Grandpa Bob

    checked in on all the cute pictures of Evan. I can see where he is doing much more in each session. He is a darling baby and the changes are noticeable. Liz said when he saw them last night that he cried, but soon was all smiles again. It is wonderful that you take so many pictures so all of us can keep up on the changes. Love, Great Grandma Winger
