Andrew’s Newest Milestone

Yesterday was a big day for baby Andrew. He said his first word! He said “Hello,” although he did pronounce it “Hewwo.” I still can’t believe it myself. My little one is only 5 1/2 months and he said “Hello!” I was so proud and excited that I immediately called Anthony to tell him.

He was shocked too of course, and wanted to hear it for himself so he told me to try and get him to say it again and get it on video. I tried. Let me tell you, I really tried. It just didn’t happen. Every time I tried to get him to repeat after me he just started smiling. It was adorable, but it wasn’t proof.

Maybe it was just a fluke thing. I doubt Andrew really knows what hello means, or the proper time to use it, but I am still counting it as his first word. Hopefully sometime soon I can get him to repeat it while his daddy is around.

My little one is growing up so fast. If he keeps this up I’ll have baby fever again in no time…


Another Milestone Reached!

My little Andrew is growing up so fast, too fast in my opinion! I am barely getting enough time to enjoy him as a little baby who can’t do anything yet. He will be four months old at the end of this week, and yesterday he reached a new milestone. He learned how to roll over from his stomach to his back yesterday!

I was worried I wasn’t giving him enough tummy time because I always forget to do it. When I did remember he was almost always really tired so I wouldn’t put him on tummy time because I didn’t want to frustrate him. Yesterday I remembered to put him on his stomach when he was actually awake, and he decided he didn’t want to have tummy time so he rolled over. I was amazed, and extremely proud. I still am in fact. Then about ten minutes later I decided to put him back on his stomach to see what he would do. Sure enough, he rolled over again!

He seems to get frustrated that he can’t go anywhere on his own, so for the past couple weeks he has been desperately trying to find a way to move around. It seems like yesterday he figured it out. He may end up being a baby that just rolls from place to place if he can figure out how to get from his back to his stomach. I guess I will just have to wait and see on that one.

I am happy with just one child right now, but that doesn’t mean I want the one I have to grow up so fast. If he keeps this up, I will have baby fever again in no time. I had hoped I could keep that at bay until at Andrew was at least starting potty training. Having two in diapers just isn’t for me.

For now I’ll just have the camera always ready to try and catch those precious milestones Andrew reaches. It is definitely an odd feeling being both happy and a little sad at the same time. Just another way having kids changes you I suppose.
