Nicholas is growing like a weed now. He’s smiling, laughing a little, and becoming much more interactive. The coolest thing is his head control. He can hold his head up on his own now! He’s pretty steady and can do it for about 1/2 hour before he gets tired. He actually tracked me from one side of the room to the other today with his whole head…and it was so steady! Another cool thing…I don’t have to force burps out of him much anymore. He likes to sit up on my knee after he eats. He will start lifting his head and shoulders off of me and grunt…that’s how I know he’s ready to sit up. After a minute of that…Buuurrrrp! He’s doing it pretty regularly now, so it makes our lives a bit easier. We are making a big deal out of it cheering and clapping when he does it so he gets the idea that burping is a good thing. He’s a far cry from my 8.2 on the richter burps, but he’s catching up. 🙂 Check the picture gallery…some new pics up there. More soon!
