Happy New Year!
Zach turns 3 months today. We had a fun Christmas when Grandma Morphet, Aunt Cindy and Uncle Mark all came in to spend Zach's first Christmas with him. (Incidentally, we have decided that we are definitely in need of more space (1400 sq feet) and will start house hunting soon.)
He is quite the little smiler. Even chuckles occasionally. This makes him a lot of fun when he decides that he wants to be happy. Otherwise, we have a "high needs" child on our hands - he loves to be held most of the time he is awake. I know that soon he will be crawling, then walking, then running and will have little interest in me holding him - so I cherish the time for now.
For Christmas, we were able to stop in to Great Grandma's who is now 96. (WHOA!) Unfortunately, Zach wasn't the most cooperative for a picture - but Sophie did oblige.
He coos like crazy and the most interesting milestone this month I found was that he has started to interact with Sophie - he likes to watch her and will coo and smile at her when she stays still enough for him to see her!
He refuses a bottle, and is partial to hid Dada at nighttime - this makes it very interesting trying to get him to sleep! He is waking 2-3 times a night from 9PM-8PM so we are managing some OK sleep for now. He loves sitting upright so we have purchased a "Bumbo" seat - whatta find!
Two is certainly more "interesting" than one. (Feel free to read between the lines.) Hope everyone has a Happy New Year and we'll send out the next update in about a month.
