Some weeks the baby development descriptions seem spot on to where William is, others them seem less so. William definitely is into peek-a-boo now with more on an understanding, yet this was true of him even weeks ago. We’ve definitely been thinking he was is or teething for months now. Still, with no teeth fully breaking through yet, it’s hard to know when one will be out and fully visible.
The solids discussion was one we had had with our doctor at our last visit. William would probably love to start solids right now and there is some data that suggests babies fed solids sleep more soundly through the night. However, with allergies in his family line to specific foods, we’ll be waiting till he’s officially six months to start him out.
William has been getting a lot of usage out of his teething toy, Sophie. He likes it a lot as it is easy to grip and all of the surfaces on the large toy are chewable.
It cracks me up how expressive he is. When he’s happy everyone knows it with his winning smile. When he’s unhappy you definitely know that, also. I’m not sure why he didn’t like this hat, but he certainly was not a fan of having it on his head.
Yet other times, he will happily go along with other similar things. Maribel was able to convince him to wear this set of rabbit ears without any crying at all.
He’s so interested in the world around him. In addition to people, even his own blankets can fascinate him for quite a while.
It’s great to see William being even more actively aware of and a part of his surrounding environment.
