It’s a little bit incredible how big this baby is getting. He’s chubby and delicious. He goes to bed by 7:30 every night, and doesn’t wake up until at least 4 or 5 most mornings (and then goes back to sleep after nursing). He almost never takes naps longer than half an hour or so. He loves books, and kicks his legs and squeals in delight when I read to him. He’s just starting to grab toys and shake them around. He studies people he doesn’t know well intently for a few seconds, then gives them giant grins. We’re all pretty into him.
I’m having a harder and harder time picking out pictures as he gets old enough to cooperate with photo shoots a bit more. No crying pictures this month! It was cloudy, so I had a bit of trouble getting a really sharp focus on some of these.
This month’s seal picture. He’s almost as long as the seal now!
More tummy time pics: cross eyed and drooling–very attractive, no?
I waited until later in the day (when the sun is on the nursery side of the room) and switched to my 50mm fixed lens for these next ones. I’ve tried using that lens before, but haven’t had any luck until today (I think every other picture of Abe posted here has been with the kit lens, oddly). But these I’m pretty pleased with, particularly the last one:
Someday I’ll get him to smile for the camera. He’s very serious about portraiture, apparently.
And it was Gus’ month for pictures. He’s kind of at that all teeth stage right now–with his grown-up front teeth in, but still little. I love his one side of his face freckles:
