New developments

Uly is:

  • Smiling … A LOT … at the slightest prompting
  • Exhibiting some mirroring behavior — making sounds and sticking his tongue out in response to our doing the same
  • Wanting lots of attention
  • Awake more during the day, and starting to sleep longer at night
  • Huge — over 12 pounds at this point.
  • Beginning to grasp at objects
  • Super cute, all the time
