You have become so vocal this month! You love to scream! You scream when you are mad and crying and you scream when you are happy and talking. Sometimes if I'm across the room and you scream I have a hard time figuring out if it's a happy or mad scream because you are so loud either way! You are wearing size 6 month clothing and size two diapers. You consistently sleep through the night now. You take your last bottle at 10:00 and sleep until about 6:00 am. However, you are not a very good napper. If you do take a nap you only fall asleep for about 30 minutes at a time. You love being held upright and love to sit on my lap or knee. You get upset if you are left laying on your back too long. You like to see what's going on! You are such a curious little guy and we just love to watch your big adorable eyes take in everything you see (and then yell and screech about it!). I have a feeling you are going to have a lot to say when you learn to talk! 
Love you to the moon,
Your Mommy

You also have decided it is time to be vocal. You love to coo and talk. It makes us laugh because you get almost a painful expression on your face sometimes when you start talking. Like you have to really concentrate! Just this past week or so you have started laughing out loud and it is the sweetest sound in the world! Your whole face lights up when you smile that big toothless grin! Everyone comments on your pretty eyes and long long lashes. Such a pretty girl you are! You also are wearing size six month clothes and size two diapers. You take your last bottle at 10:00 and sleep until 6:00. However, this month you have had quite a few episodes of wanting to wake up in the middle of the night. We take you in the living room and put put you in your swing and you are usually back asleep in about 10 minutes though. You are a much better napper than your brother usually. You also are not a fan of tummy time and we have had to become very creative in finding ways to get you to cooperate with it! We love you so much my little Mimi and can't wait to wait to see what the next month holds for you!

Love you to the moon, 
Your Mommy

  1. Oh, Ashley, Mason and Madeline are AMAZING! You keep them dressed so cute and they are starting to break into their separate personalities and Madeline is staying a touch ahead on the weight and height charts. I have an idea of the process you went through to be parents as Bill and I had an 8 year battle, but to see your babies every month growing bigger, stronger, more active and vocal, it is a blessing I receive every time I look at their pictures. Thank you for posting every month. They are truly miracles and I am reminded of that with every picture.
