You like having your hands up around your face, pretty much the way they were at your twenty-week ultrasound. (Thanks for getting them out of the way during birth!)

You’re astonishingly quiet and sweet and sleepy when we have people over. You seem to enjoy being surrounded by conversation and ambient noise. We never have to walk on eggshells when you’re sleeping.

You sleep for longer stretches during the day than at night. You sleep for longer stretches while being held than in your bassinet or crib.

Your fingernails are exquisite, but they grow faster than I can find opportunity to file them down.

I thought holding your head up was a one-month milestone, but you’ve been doing it for some time already. And I thought your smiles might be gas-related, but now you’re laughing!

You snort when you cry.
