Thank you very much and merry Christmas!

Uly’s 5 month update

Uly’s 5 month update

At nearly 5 months, Ulysses is babbling, laughing, almost-but-not-quite crawling, grasping and manipulating objects, becoming transfixed by music (especially his dad’s drumming), growing 2 bottom teeth, enjoying his first solid foods, going out to lots of restaurants, hanging out with his bro Magnus, taking lots of walks around the neighborhood with his dad in the Björn … and wearing lederhosen as befits the occasion.

Weight: +/- 17.5 lbs; height: almost 2 feet.

Uly on film

Ulysses at 3 months

This month’s firsts for Ulysses: first time meeting his aunt and uncle, first airplane flight, first nights away from home, first appearance at a wedding, first time on a farm, first time at the beach, and first time dipping his toes into Lake Michigan (“too cold,” he reports). He has become a big fan of books; not actually reading them, of course, but he does seem fascinated with all those dark, squiggly shapes contrasting against white paper. This would seem to bode well.

Ulysses’ 2-month update

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
