I don’t know how I have any heart left at all the way this little boy steals chunks of it every day. I’m learning more about him every day it seems. Sometimes writing these update posts are so difficult because I don’t know how to even begin telling you about the preciousness that is my boys. Where do I start? How do I describe some of those things you just have to see or experience to understand? I’ll give it my best shot though.

I notice him watching us when we interact with Joey sometimes. He never shows any jealousy or tries to steal the spotlight. If anything he’ll share in the fun of talking to Joey and making him smile…but I get the feeling that he wants some of that attention too. I thought it was so sweet that he waited until it was just the two of us before coming up with an excuse to cuddle with me.
This morning he made a new discovery. On the way out to the truck he saw himself in the chrome bumper and was amazed! He told Daddy all about it and even showed him that he could see himself. It’s these types of things that are just so fun to experience with him.

He’s such a smiley baby…he didn’t smile for so long…not until he was 9 weeks old…so I was beginning to think he would be a somber serious baby. Even more serious than Jimmy. It’s turning out to be the opposite I think. Joey doesn’t need much of a reason to smile and he has such a beautiful smile. I can’t seem to capture the full force of it very often because the minute you put the camera in front of his face he studies it in all seriousness. He’s just started laughing now and he’s ticklish so I have a great time getting those chuckles and squeals out. He smiled at Jimmy for the first time this week. I think it’s because Jimmy is starting to actually talk to him now. Before he just nodded at him a lot and gave him knuckles and patted his head.
He also rolled over for the first time on Monday – from belly to back. The Dr said it’s typical for bigger babies to not roll over very early because they are big but she said he should start showing interest by the time he’s six months…it didn’t even take a week!
Their Daddy and I very frequently share our wonderment with each other that we have the “titles” for two of the most wonderful little boys. They are both so precious to us.
