This was a big month for The Wee Two. We had Papa and Gran Scottish visiting from Glasgow for three weeks so not only were we extra busy but this little guy did a ton of developing too.
I absolutely LOVE when a baby’s personality starts to peek through. I’d describe the first look of his personality as laid-back, curious, and sweet. The Wee Two began giggling and laughing this month and it’s pretty much the best thing ever. I don’t think I caught his first chuckle like I did with The Wee One, I believe The Scottish can claim that, but now we all enjoy tickling him (especially in his neck rolls haha) in hopes of hearing that precious sound again.
The Wee Two is growing crazy fast and he’s already in size 6 month clothing. He still has his hair surprisingly, which nicely covers up his cradle cap, and his handsome facial features are becoming more and more defined. We also introduced The Wee Two to his toys and he’s taking more interest in them all the time.
Sleep or the lack thereof has been interesting this past month. The good news is that The Wee Two transitioned wonderfully to sleeping in his crib just like his brother did. But instead of sleeping longer and longer at night like you would expect by this age, The Wee Two is still waking up frequently. It makes having a life and doing things at night nearly impossible since we have to assume we won’t be getting much rest. Some people function OK on little sleep but The Scottish and I really struggle with it. Speaking of…
