weight & height: 17 pounds 12 ounces and 25.83 inches long! I haven't grown much length wise but have been filling in around my belly and thighs. Mom and Dad love being able to see that I'm a healthy, well-fed baby! :D eating & sleeping: I have officially made the switch over to drinking all formula, and it's been working really well. My tummy feels lots better than before and I'm able to stay full for longer periods of time. I still haven't tried any solid foods yet, but have heard that rice cereal is somewhere in my near future so I'm excited for that! exciting firsts/milestones: I've rolled over a couple more times since last month (though it's still not a super regular thing) and have learned how to sit up for really brief periods of time. I love being able to be up straight and see everything happening around me and hope that I can learn how to get the hang of sitting soon so that it can become a regular thing! I also went trick-or-treating with all of my dental school baby friends for the first time on Halloween and experienced my very first Thanksgiving! Being around all of Mommy & Daddy's friends and all of my dental school baby friends for the holidays has been an absolute blast!! I've loved getting to spend time with what Mom calls our "Kentucky family"! We do get to go and see our big Pett and Anderson families for Christmas though, and I'm so excited to be able to spend that time with them :) things I love: Right now my favorite thing in the world is talking to people and making noises with my mouth. I have so much to say and love when people listen to me and talk back!! I also still really love attention and playtime from EVERYONE, especially Mom, Dad, and H, and will laugh a TON when any of them act silly or tickle me! I'm also constantly trying to eat EVERYTHING, and have had a fun time of showing everyone my trick of fitting my entire fist in my mouth. Everyone seems to think that I might be teething but none have showed up yet! things I don't enjoy so much: I've recently started to discover what a big world I live in, so I don't very much like being in a situation where I can't see or hear Mom or Dad for longer than 30 seconds, even if they're just in the other room. Typically though as long as they're within sight though and I'm fed & get my naps, I'm a really happy baby that will rarely pitch a fit or cry. mom & dad's biggest parenting lesson so far: It's not so much a lesson this month, but lately Mom & Dad have been having a really fun time being able to enjoy all of my "firsts" with me. With the holidays coming up there's a lot to be enjoyed and always something to be celebrated, and Mom & Dad love and feel extremely lucky to have me and be able to experience all of the excitement together. :) Mom is also TRYING to learn how to not go overboard with her Christmas shopping for me this year, but I think that might be a lesson that she'll just have to keep on learning for next year because this year she's doing a horrible job at it. ;D
