Andrew is really starting to following things with his eyes now. He is really interested in the toys on his bouncy chair and will even look at his mobile on his crib. He has quite a grip now. If we put a rattle in his hand, he will grab it and shake it around for a while. He is starting to coo and make sounds. It is so fun to hear his little voice. He is a pretty happy baby and is really getting to be a smiley little guy, too. Andrew is getting to be more independent. Last night he did not want to be held and snuggled, which was very unusual. He wanted to be in his bouncy chair and kick his legs and wave his arms. He seems to want to eat so frequently the last few days. He might be going through a growth spurt. He’s grown out of some of his little clothes and the others are soon to follow.
We are all feeling much better around here. Dad was spared from getting a cold this time. They tested the cyst they removed from under my eye last week -- it came back benign. The doctor thought it would be, but it was good to know for sure.
Great Aunt Marilyn and cousin Meredith stopped to see us this last Thursday since they were shopping in Fargo. On Friday we got more SNOW. It worked out okay for us though since the NDSU baseball games were cancelled for the weekend and Ryan could spend time with our visitors. Great Aunt Sue and Uncle Dave drove up from Grand Rapids on Sunday. How fun to see them!
Good luck to Aunt Allison as she goes back to work. At least you only have a month and then back home for the summer. You teachers got it made!
