21 Weeks

Arlo is 21 weeks old today, and that sleeping-through-the-night thing? Major fluke. Our nights have improved a little, though. He only had an up-six-times night once this past week, and last night, he only got up once. I just never know what to expect.

Anyway, I swear he's getting more fun by the minute. He's rolling over like it ain't no thang now, both from tummy to back and back to tummy. He knows that if a toy is out of reach, all he has to do is roll over to get closer to it. I don't think he necessarily has control over where he goes, but he's getting really good at scooching around. If I leave him alone on his activity mat for 3 minutes, there's no telling where he'll be when I get back. He scooches his little body right off that thing. He can also make it from one side of his crib to the other in no time. Okay, like 5 minutes. But still.

When did he get so big??

His feet still can't quite reach the floor when he's in his jumperoo, so I put a blanket under them—and he goes to town! He jumped around maniacally in that thing for over an hour straight the other day, hootin' and hollerin' up a storm. He looks like he's slimming down a bit, thanks to all this new exercise.

Felix is such a good sport.

He's so happy and smiley, and every single day, he does something that's so cute it almost gives me a stroke.

Like the way he adores his daddy. (You have good taste, kid.)

ha ha felix looks so stunned in that jumparoo picture, like he doesn't know what to make of the situation!

isn't it crazy how fast they move once they start rolling? we are starting to baby proof the house because tavi is so mobile!


also - arlo is cute, but you already knew that!

How is it possible that Arlo is getting cuter every week? I just can't get over him.
