This little boy just gets more fun every day!

He has grown up so much in the past three months.

Head Circ: 47.5cm 53%ile
The Pediatrician said that Henrik will be over 6 ft when he grows up based on the numbers. He was also impressed at the number of words Henrik can say and body parts he can identify. High-five Hank!
I've included the list from his 15 month post, so you can see all the ways he grown. What's new is in blue!

Playing Peek-a-boo around corners
Drinking out of his dinosaur cup
Songs: "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "Old MacDonald"
Looking at his shadow on the ground or wall

Who made you? God did it. "Ga did dit"
Who loves you? Dada
How old are you? "Uh" he says and points one finger.
How does thunder go? "Ba boom!"
Discipline has been more of an issue since he's started walking. The biggest issues we're having right now is him being feisty on the changing table (trying to roll all the way over) and trying to touch the tv equipment.
Down to 1 nap a day.
Goes to bed at 6pm and sleeps until 6am.
No more dream feed at 9pm.
|Waiting for Dada to get home|
My little nugget is getting so big!
It's a lot of fun seeing how his mind is beginning to grasp all these new things.
What a blessing this boy is!
