Monkey is growing so fast! And has now decided he doesn't like sleep. Not sure why but he has fallen into the habit of cat naps over the last few days. I blame the break. He's not used to having us both home this many days. And the poor little one missed some naps yesterday and Thursday. I would have thought that would make him more tired at night but no, it means he wakes up more often. I hope he sleeps well today so that he will sleep tonight. He has started to laugh more and it's adorable! He enjoys making faces at us and seeing our reactions to the things he does. And either he suddenly has more saliva or the teeth will be coming in soon cause he is trying to chew everything and the drool is all over. He really is a cute baby even when we're exhausted and have to hold him constantly cause he won't sleep anywhere else. The thing that amazes me is how fast he is growing. I look at the pictures of when he was in the NICU and I'm amazed at how quickly he has grown. I want him to stay little and cuddly forever.
This Thanksgiving, I'm grateful for our sweet little Monkey and the fact that he's healthy. He loves everyone he meets and is quite the charmer with his giggle and smile. I'm thankful he loves to play and listen to stories. He will listen to any book I read him even if it's just Reader's Digest. Poor daddy was hoping Monkey wouldn't like showtunes and books the way I do but it looks like I'm the winner! He enjoys singing with me to Christmas music and Broadway musicals. However he also loves football and soccer so he's a perfect blend of us both!
Merry Christmas from Baby Monkey :) He loves the hat and booties my mom crocheted. They're perfect for Christmas!

Eating his elephant rattle. He loves to chew on it and anything else that's hard including my fingers.
