31-Week-Old Big Guy

In just six weeks you will have been outside in the world for as long as you were in mommy's tummy! You're becoming such a little PERSON that it's hard to believe you were not so long ago growing fingers and toes and all of the necessary organs for living out here in the great big world.

The theme of your life for the past few weeks has been movement, movement, movement (crash) more movement. Your new joy is pulling up on things so that you can stand or kneel.

You also sit up all on your own now, no propping up needed or tipping over!

You have SIX TEETH prominently visible in that mouth of yours. Your four middle top teeth are in, as well as those two cute little bottom teeth that show so nicely when you smile. Daddy and I think you may have his smile--his top teeth don't really show when he grins, and neither do yours. Mommy, on the other hand, is all teeth she smiles! Either way, that little grin of yours is just too cute.

Daddy and I both agree that if possible, we fall more in love with you each day. You're such an interactive little guy, climbing all over us and talking away, babbling and laughing and throwing the occasional temper tantrum if you don't get your way. Your personality is really beginning to shine.

A remote control hog, just like a dude!

In addition to the traditional weekly monkey pic, I caught a few of you, monkey and your #1 doggy friend, Liam (though you do adore Sierra, she's a distant #2 in terms of the attention paid to you. While Liam needs to be beside you whenever he possibly can, Sierra does fly-by licks to your head but more of less stays out of your way. We think you make her a bit nervous).

31 Weeks!  Time is just flying by, my sweet Tater Tot.

(You are, by the way, sporting an 18-month-size "Rookie" ensemble in these pics! Mommy ordered a few fall things for you online and thought she'd try them on to see if they would be ridiculously big on you and might need to be returned. Nope! They almost fit you now--a tiny bit long in the legs, but not that much!--and surely will in a few months' time. Big guy!)
