Miles is getting out a lot more in his 3rd month, and has experienced many firsts recently: Rolled over from his back to his tummy and back again, experienced his first Christmas and first snow, first time in a movie theater, first visit to a protest rally, first art opening and first time at an art museum (Gerhard Richter exhibit). Tonight will be his first time sleeping in his crib rather than in bed with mom and dad, which is a big one (for all three of us).
He’s been doing a lot of gurgling and cooing experiments, which are part of the reason we think it’s time for him to move out of our bed and into the crib (we can’t sleep for all the talking;). The rolling over bit is the really exciting one, since it means he’s on the brink of becoming motile. He’s grabbing anything that comes within reaching distance — hair, fingers, forks full of food en route to daddy’s mouth, toys, diapers, fish pellets … He’s fascinated by talking people, TV, screensavers, and above all fish tanks.
