When Santino is lying on his back, he rolls to the side and now onto his tummy. He also loves to stuff his fingers in his mouth as you can see.
He is quite stiff legged at times...pushing himself up to a standing position if we're holding him. He's been like that almost since birth. Lately, however, he has been trying to sit up straight when we put him in the bouncy chair or swing. He'll lift his head up as if he's trying to do sit ups.
He continues to growl, laugh and make really loud noises.
Santino finds interest in toys that make noises, like the crinkly books, his Baby Einstein musical toy and Maximus' bright colored blocks. He has a love/hate thing going on with his play mat. Sometimes he can lie there and be completely content and entertain himself, while other times he cries and doesn't want to have anything to do with it. He is grabbing at things more and is able to hold onto them for short spurts. I'm sure all of this learning can be a bit overwhelming for him. Whew...
I am staying busy, and it's exhausting at times, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I feel so blessed to be a Mom to my 2 boys!
