You have started to explore your voice and make all kinds of little shrieking and cooing noises- we've even heard a few giggles. Other favorite past-times of yours are blowing bubbles and sucking on your hands... Does this mean you're going to get teeth soon?
You and KG are becoming good friends. You love to watch him chase after his ball and he often brings it to you to throw (we keep telling him that it will be a little while before you're able to do that, but he keeps trying anyway).
You at Lake Harriet with our post-walk refreshments (milk for you and hibiscus punch for me).
We've found lots of other ways to enjoy the summer weather, too. A few weeks ago we went to Minnehaha Falls with your friend Christopher.
You've also met several more family members over the past month. A couple of weeks ago you got to meet your daddy's cousin's kids:
Noah, you, Nealie (who was born just 10 days after you), and Maranda
you and Benjamin (who was visiting from California)
Finally, Daddy celebrated his very first Father's Day! We had a pretty relaxing day and then went out for a sushi dinner with your Grandma and Grandpa White. Mom and dad were a little worried about bringing you to the restaurant, but you slept most of the time and when you woke up you enjoyed looking around. Whew!
Your daddy is an amazing man and loves you so much. His eyes light up every day when he gets home from work and sees your sweet little face. I see so much of him in you already. You are both early birds, so you have your "guy time" Saturday and Sunday mornings (while mommy and KG sleep in). I usually find you two cuddling on the couch downstairs watching movies. I've also heard daddy singing to you several times and even caught it on camera. It is the cutest/funniest thing I've ever seen for two reasons. First, daddy is
a little completely tone deaf, so it's almost impossible to recognize what he's singing. This wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the second reason... He doesn't know the words to most songs, so he just makes them up as he goes along! I would post the video here, but daddy made me swear on my life to never show anyone... (Although, I'm sure we'll show it to you when you're a little older and have a good laugh).
Happy four months peanut!
