Week 31 - Amusement
The easily amused are never bored.
Week 31
Nate is finally getting over his cold (I think). He never had any other symptoms besides a stuffy nose, but boy did he HATE that one. He now starts to whimper as soon as he hits the changing table because he knows the nose sucker is coming out. We have sucked prodigous amounts of snot out of this kid's nose.

We have been gradually improving on the sleep front. We've moved his bedtime up to 7:30, which seems to be helping him sleep longer (?!? right?). It's been at least a week and a half since I've had to get out of bed just to give him a pacifier. Most the time he's up once at 3-4 and then wakes between 6:30 and 7. I sometimes do give him a pacifier then because he has a habit of talking loudly to himself in his crib and will instead play quietly if he's got a paci. I am not energetic enough to get up unless he forces me, so he often plays quietly in his crib for 20-30 minutes before I get up and get him up for the day when my alarm goes off.

He's starting to take real 'steps' on his knees, more than one in a row, but he can't quite get the cooridination down, which frustrates him. He likes to sit more and more, and look around at everything. He also likes sitting with me on the couch and crawling around to check things out. He remains a huge fan of chewing any cord in existence and will beeline across the room to find one.

Food continues to be fun. He's had pear and eggs, and Rob made him a pseudo omelet with mushroom in it this week. He also had 3 fries and an onion ring at BW3s on Friday because our food took 40 MINUTES and he was done by the time it got there. He was a pretty big fan. We gave him a little bit of peanut butter on a spoon last night and he sucked it off like a champ. He's getting to the point where I can hand him a variety of things off my plate, which is fun!

He's big into raspberries again and playing with blowing air in different ways, which is pretty amusing to watch/listen to. Also I realized last night that at some point in the past month or so, the excessive drooling has just... stopped. It's awesome.

We're going to Kentucky for Thanksgiving, and we rented a house along with my parents and brother and sister in law, about 30 minutes from my grandparents' house. They haven't met Nate yet. I think it'll be a fun trip and I'm kind of looking forward to it, even though it's a 5 hour drive. We'll see how it goes!
