Baby Milestones

As a parent there are many milestones that you eagerly wait for your baby to reach. You wait for the first smile, the coos and goos, rolling over, sitting up, laughing, crawling, etc. But as a mom I have learned that there are other milestones that babies reach that are not written in baby development literature. Here is my list:
  1. Your baby can successfully pull out a clump of your hair.
  2. While lying on his back, your baby can put his toes in his mouth and suck on them.
  3. While changing your baby's diaper, he can aim and pee all over you with ease.
  4. Your baby can spit up all over you every time you make yourself look really cute (which isn't often).
  5. When your baby begins to drool, he can soak through multiple layers of clothing.
  6. Your baby has learned how to put his lips together and spit and does this over and over again.
  7. When your baby can fit his whole fist into his mouth.
  8. Your baby becomes enthralled with his hands and stares at them until he becomes cross eyed, and then tries to devour both of them...at the same time.
Brantley has reached all of these milestones and I am such a proud momma :).
