It was a big month for you. You, dad and I flew to Las Vegas for a conference. You did ok on the flight and I did have to get up a few times to calm you down. Thankfully, we had 2 empty rows around us so it wasn’t bad. You ended up partying pretty much all weekend by crying all night, every night. Thankfully, Grandma Marsh drove down from Salt Lake City to help us.

We took you to instacare thinking you had an ear infection. The only thing we found out was you’ve got the ear wax problem your brother and dad have. (re: LOTS of ear wax) No infection.

We quickly realized you just hate being away from home and out of your routine. But Grandma was sure happy to see you even if you did keep her up all night crying.

You’re not the traveler you’re brother was at this age. But you sure are cute. Maybe we’ll try again.

You sleep for 12 hours at night and take two naps during the day for about 1 hour and 30 minutes each. You’re getting stronger at sitting up on your own so you tried the high chair. You can barely see over the tray! We go back and forth between using the bumbo and high chair for meals.

We’ve been signing to you for a while now and you love the signs “all done” and “bath” but we know you don’t quite know what they mean yet. Although you really LOVE baths so maybe you do know what that sign means.

You are much more smiley when the camera comes out compared to a few months ago when you were very suspect of it. You smile and bury your face into my shoulder when someone says Hi to you. You get all smiley and shy.

Christmas was fun. Jules helped you open a few gifts. You got a bunch of hair bows, a baby doll, soft blocks, clothes and some other small baby toys. It’s actually good you got your own toys because when I pulled out Jules’ old baby toys he immediately started playing with them.
