Latest Developments

In addition to meeting another great-grandparent and celebrating his first Thanksgiving, in the past week Harry has:
  • Slept through the night most if not all nights -- 8:30/9 until 6:30/7
  • Laughed for the first time (and the second, third, and fourth) -- all but once while getting ready for a bath, and all but once sounding a bit like a donkey (a very cute and wonderful donkey)
  • Begun talking up a storm -- he is quite the chatterbox, full of fascinating things to share and discuss
  • Reached for, grasped, and shaken a rattle
  • Starting wearing some of his 3-6 month clothing, as he is too long for some of his 0-3 stuff, though we could still fit two of him into some of the 0-3 things at the waist
My little boy is growing up so fast. I am already feeling a bit nostalgic for the days when he was just a teeny tiny guy.

Hooray for sleeping so well!

I just adore the sounds of a baby's laughter and chattering. Sigh. :-)

He's getting so big! I can't believe he's growing up so quickly.

yay for sleeping through the night! He is just too adorable for words. Don't worry he still looks like a baby! :)

I am envious of the sleeping. One of my twins still only goes 5 hours.

SIgh.

Hooray for the laughing (isn't it the sweetest sound!?) and the sleeping!

One of the twins is sleeping through the night - for the past week. The other one is still getting up once each night.

Congratulations on having your little man sleep through the night - it must be a nice treat for you.

It's amazing how quickly they grow up, though - makes you miss the earlier days when they were oh-so-tiny and helpless.

That picture is so sweet - he's a cutie!

I totally understand getting nostalgic, but I'm willing to accept LL getting bigger if it would mean he'd sleep through the night! Congrats on that!!!

(We've definitely got the laughing and the grasping and the growing and the non-stop talking, but the sleeping through the night part still escapes us.)
