I'm a Big Kid Now!
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Handsome Pants!
As Ben mentioned in the previous post, our Little Bean is growing up so fast. It's crazy because as soon as he got close to the 3 month mark, he started learning how to do so much more and does something new every single day. I have been told that once babies hit 3 months, they take off and grow up so fast. This has held true for Little Bean so far.
Tummy time has drastically improved for Will. He used to require the assistance of his boppy pillow to hold his head up during tummy time, but now lays flat on the ground and manages to lift both his head and feet up at the same time. It's almost as if he's flying. He also enjoys turning over from his tummy to his back during this time. It is so cute. I don't want to sound bias, but he must be advanced. (I know...every mom on the planet thinks their kid is way advanced :)
Speaking of turning over, Handsome Pants has also learned how to roll over from his back to his tummy. In fact, his first official turn over on his own from back to front was on the 4th of July. While he can roll over by himself most of the time, he sometimes needs a little help as he gets his left arm jammed under his body, and gets stuck.
Will also sat in his Exersaucer for the first time over the 4th of July weekend. He's not quite ready for it yet, but I had an itch to put it together (which took us quite a bit of time even with directions) and had to get a few pics of him in it.
Lastly, Ben's and my new favorite thing that Will does, is grabbing and holding on to things. It takes a little encouragement to get his fist open sometimes, but for the most part Bean loves to grab hold of his toy rings.
Can we say overstimulated?
Check out these guns.
"Holding on to these things is exhausting." (Grandpa had put Will's hand on the ring, and he held it the entire car ride to my house, falling asleep in the process.)
