Growing

Dear Pumpkin,

a lot has happened lately!! Every day you seem to learn some new trick or skill and I just do not have the time to write about it, even if you have no idea how much I’d want to. I think I’ll remember and will do it in the weekend, but by that time you’ve learnt another dozen things and there is so much else to do that I miss the chance.

So far you’ve been a pretty good baby, except for the fact that after 2 weeks of almost total night sleep, you started to wake up again – every hours and a half. Dad and I were not having a great time… lack of sleep really gets to you after a few weeks.

But you are so awesome that a smile or a laugh just make us forget about the nights for a while 🙂

You don’t frown as much as you used to, at least not to people you know. You smile really easily and laugh too.

Yesterday after your bath and massage (we do it every night. It’s OUR time) you were laying in bed and i was caressing your face and you put both hands on the side of my face and kept them there while staring straight into my eyes. Oh, my!! Isn’t this love? I thought. I felt so overwhelmed by emotions that a little tera came out. I can’t imagine how our life would be without you now. I don’t even wanna know. And daddy feels the same and this is one of the reasons I love him. We got both really lucky you know.

Today (November 15th) you definitely rolled over completely!! From back to tummy and back! I’m sure you’ve done in before but this was the first time you did it so easily and in front of our eyes.

Things to remember: you love your bath. Now I use a measuring cup to pour water on your back and YOU LOOOOVE IT. You squeal in delight every time. Now you can almost sit up with no help and you know that when the bottle is on the table and you can’t reach it, pulling the tablecloth will get the bottle closer… then you grab it with both hands and bring it to your mouth, but you can’t hold it high up enough to get anything out of it.

It’s 10pm and you are napping after the massage – time to wake you up for the last feeding! And hopefully -and probably not- you’ll sleep at least until 4 tonight!

Goodnight baby, sleep tight! Don’t let the bed bugs bite 😉

Love,

Mom
