Arlo's becoming more alert during his awake time, and it's so fun to watch him take in the world. I know he can't focus well yet, but he does enjoy looking at the birch trees behind his crib, the mobile on his swing, and the living room curtains. He stares and stares at these things, and we stare and stare at him. We could look at his sweet face for hours—and we do.
He also does this thing Danny and I refer to as "crazy-hand time," where he flails his arms everywhere, fist-pumping and waving, just loving life. And what's not to love, really?
