You are Sixteen Weeks, Going on Seventeen Weeks

July 27th was our twelfth anniversary, and Smiley was sixteen weeks old. We celebrated by going blueberry picking.

At sixteen weeks Smiley has become very proficient at grabbing things and holding his head up.

He is also more aware of his surroundings. His crib is now a place to look out of, not just a small world of its own.

He still loves seeing his reflection. At bath time the "other baby" is very exciting!

Toys also are now recognized. Here are a turtle made by one of his aunts and a duck given to him by one of his mother's coworker's daughters who says she is too old for it now.

He loves to stand, and although he has no balance yet his legs are strong enough that he can brace himself when held by the arms or when leaning against the couch.

He also uses his Excersaucer to stand. He's much to little for it to be anything but a chair at this point.
