Countdown 1 year {6 weeks}

Six, almost seven, weeks into baby Tuck's little life has been really cool.
He's such an easy, squishy, cuddly, happy baby.
He only cries when he needs to be changed, is tired, or just wants a change of scenery.

His favorite place to sleep right now is at the end of our couch, on his belly cuddled in his brown snuggle-saurus blanket.
He likes his paci, but rarely "needs" it:).
But he sure is cute sucking away at it.

He still really likes to be snuggled.
He loves to look and smile at our fan and lights.
And, I have to admit, I seem to be a favorite to smile at too.
Which, completely melts my heart.
I've been known to stand in that guy's face for 20 minutes at a time while he smiles & talks to me.

He knows his sister.
She comes into the room & he looks for her.
She of course delights herself in that. Ha!
She plays her "bio-lin" for him & sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star about 10 times a day.
He smiles almost every time.
I keep telling him to stop smiling if he's tired of that song...but I think he likes it.
She is turning out to be an excellent big sis, why should I have expected less?

He even talks a lot. 
He's got the /a/ sound down.
Which, to a teacher's ears, are wonderful developmental music.

He still grunts.
He smiles after he poops.
And he's always sticking out that tongue.
Needless to say, he's most certainly a boy.
hehe :)

His favorite position is on his back.
He's pretty observant & seems to like to know what's going on around him.
He gets very excited any time he's on his back, and when he's on his play gym, his excitement makes him accidentally kick or hit one of his toys.
Usually confuses him.
I love babies.

Good buddies.
Mitchel's been having fun having a little man around during football games.
As you can see, Tucker is most certainly into watching the game ;).
But he does like his dad.
He checks him out more & more thoroughly everyday.
He's starting to rival my smile count.
But that's okay.

He's still on an awesome schedule & I think it's safe to say we're on the right road.
He wakes up once in the middle of the night to eat, & that's it.
He even goes right back to sleep.
I can't believe that he gets it already.
So cool.
He eats during the day, plays for about an hour/ hour and a half, then sleeps for a good hour and a half to 2 hours.
I'm loving having another baby.
You forget how very sweet these times are.
It's making me try even harder to relish times with Miss P as a 2 year old too.
Good times at the Mershawn house these days.
Tucker I tell you everyday....you're a good man.
We love you. :)
