Wow, it's been way too long since I've written. So much has happened in the last several months. I'm now 6 weeks away from DD (due date) with baby #2, and Bear has no idea how much life is going to change (actually, I don't think Mommy and Daddy do either). I've also started a business--Twysted Yarn--inspired by this little one I'm carrying. I'm crocheting and selling hats of all kinds.
But enough about that...what I'm learning from my little boy. I'm learning how to laugh harder than I thought possible. I can't believe what a ham he is. He picks up on everything and imitates all that we do: facial expressions, sounds, gestures. We laugh so hard and have so much joy in our home from our little man. Some of our favorite "tricks" are hippies (where he literally lays on the floor and does pelvic thrusts), chomps (where he stretches his mouth out real tight and chomps up and down), shake your booty (self explanatory), so big, "Where's Baby?" (where he pats, rubs, and kisses my belly), and so much more. Of course, he still sticks out his tongue and spits when he's being goofy or wants to get someone's attentiong (mainly Grandpa's since he knows how ornery grandpa is) and shakes his head like crazy to dance to music.
And all of that without crawling or walking or talking or reaching many of those developmental milestones that everyone expects him to achieve at this age. But really? How cute/fun are those things when he does all these others (and more) that I've listed? Milestones schmilestones. He'll get there in his own time and in his own way, no doubt entertaining us and making us laugh all the while.
