I think that when I thought about having a baby, this is the age that I imagined. He's just so exactly at that stage of babyhood that I anticipated and I love it.

He's starting to express his distaste, displeasure and downright anger at things. He pulls this scrunched up stink face that is actually pretty cute. He has a fake cry when he wants attention and a giggle when he is totally amused by something. He makes this noise that sounds like he's saying "heeeyyyy" and it's the funniest thing.

If you look at him and smile (and he knows you), he smiles back. He snuggles and lays his head down when he's tired.
All the things that seemed like big milestones a month ago are old hat now (rolling over, sitting upright, going from sitting to the floor/crawl, etc). And he's just growing/developing in leaps and bounds now. It's crazy. And fascinating/amazing.
A month ago Paul and I watched him take his first crawling steps. The other day I saw his first butt wiggle dance move. It was awesome. I love seeing how his personality is unfolding.
