Waaaait a second...

Today, at 12 weeks old, Augie decided he's bored with laying on his back and wants to grunt and squirm and roll his way over on to his tummy. He's done it four times today! Apparently back-to-tummy rolling isn't supposed to happen until ohhh, around 5-7 months?? We were already vigilant with him on high surfaces but now we'll be extra cautious and do things like belt him on the change table, etc.

It's not really surprising considering he rolled around so much in utero that he tied a knot in his umbilical cord. I later read a true knot like that happens in less that 1% of pregnancies.

AMH, our little go-go-go-getter.

First time in the Jolly Jumper (just a for a few mins) and he's into it. He beams when we stand him up in our laps and he can flex his legs, so I think he'll like a little Jolly Jumper time every once in a while.

no, really. he's been totally crabby.

Today's lesson has been on the full extent of August's go-with-the-flow, happy nature. Even on a day filled with bouts of inconsolable crying, he still manages to spend a good portion of time lolling around and beaming. His whole body squirms and wriggles in happiness when he smiles like this.

His fave new thing is when you make nom-nom sounds and try to eat him.

teef coming in already?

oh, almost forgot--thank you alex for the sweet little giraffe onesie!

I've already posted a version of this pic of August sitting in Auntie Lizzie's lap, but it's my achilles heel of cuteness.

Those little smiles keep coming even though it seems like he might be starting to teethe already. Rosy cheeks, drooling, gnawing on his hands, extreme crabbiness. I felt along his gums and there seem to be tiny ridges. He's only 11 weeks old. Poor sweetie. Someone told me about some natural herbal teething gel, but if anyone else knows of ways to soothe, let us know.

little boy blue

A few new things have come to light about Aug: he's very much a blondie, has dimples (we're not sure where they came from), and is quite possibly a leftie, if his consistent propensity for grabbing with and sucking on his left hand is any indication.

ps, thank you, Cookie, for the cuter-than-cute blue cap!

New rituals

The plan is to do this once a month as August grows.

The only photobooth in Vancouver we know of is this one at the Pacific Railway Station. When we were all crowded in the booth, Augie and me on Chris' lap, a security guard walked past and said sternly, "Now you behave in there".

augie's love affair with trees

We went for another hike last weekend to Golden Ears. August spent it staring up in wonder at where the tree tops meet the sky. Definitely digs trees and his Snugli. When he fell asleep on the way back, I bet he dreamt about the forest.
