Weeks 40, 41, & 42

Sully is on the move now! He is EVERYWHERE, ALL of the time! He's really doing great though - such a happy boy. He loves to play - with the most random things he finds around the house - I'm pretty sure we never needed to buy him toys! He also really likes playing with our little dog, Bernie. He'll find a dog toy and wave it for her and they'll play tug of war with it. It's pretty much one of the cutest things you've ever seen.

It seems like Sully is growing up so quick now. In a matter of weeks he went from sitting, to crawling, to pulling up. He's getting so big and really starting to explore the world around him. Makes for some great photos and videos!

This is 40 weeks. I got Sully a little pool for the backyard and he had a blast playing in it!

My first Mother's Day!

He is hysterical when he laughs!

He's in the laundry basket here - I had to run outside really quick, but since he's been pulling up on stuff I didn't trust him to not get in trouble while I ran out to the backyard - so I did what any normal mom would do - put a laundry basket on him!

This is quite possibly the best part of my day - when I come in his room after he's woken up from a nap he's always trying to pull up on his crib bumpers and he looks like he's in baby jail. Cutest baby ever!

Weeks 30-something - 39

So apparently I got off in my weeks, because I don't have any pictures from weeks 35 or 36... but I picked up at week 37. I think I just miscounted somewhere in the early 30's... oops! Anyway, here's what's been going on lately...
  • Sully had his 9 month (can you believe it!) check up last week and it went great. He weighs 17 pounds (5th percentile) and is 28 inches long (50th percentile). He also did great getting his shot and finger prick - barely any tears!
  • Sully is on the move now - he is army crawling like a pro. I don't think it would matter if he was crawling on his knees because he's super fast at army crawling and can get everywhere imaginable in the house. And even though he has loads of toys, his favorite things to play with are cords (I don't let him play with them, he just has a crazy radar and finds them no matter where they are), dog toys, remotes, and the pots hanging off the island in the kitchen.
  • His spitting up is FINALLY better! He still has a few moments where we're caught off guard, but all in all it has improved so much. SO thankful for this!
  • Now that the weather is so nice we've been going to the park almost every day to swing - Sully loves it and could probably stay there and swing all day.
Things are just going really well and Sullivan is such a great baby - he is so happy and smiley and is the most adorable baby ever! We are so blessed to have him and couldn't be more thankful for every day we get to spend with him. Here are some pictures from the past few weeks...
