So we had a wonderful day. We relaxed and rested and just enjoyed each other. Silas came to us with a big pacifier in his mouth, as I'm sure you remember from most of his pictures. He was really the only baby at the TH that had one. Miss Gibson is trying to be a pacifier girl. I had to put it back in her mouth several times. :)
Today we decided to see what would happen if we didn't offer it to him, but let him ask for it. He went a long time without it. He does like to sleep with it...I don't mind if he wants it all the time, we just wanted to see him without it.
The result? Well, a lot of drooling and babbling and shrieking....too cute. He has a sweet little personality. He had a ball on his quilt playing with toys and I read him a board book called Jesus Loves the Little Children twice and he was totally into it. His eyes didn't leave the book at all.
We went outside and walked around the pool with him front facing in the Bjorn with Marshall. He had a ball...got some great pictures. The funniest part is that we discovered the pacifier has been keeping the drool at bay, but by the end of our time in the Bjorn, it was COVERED and SOAKED in drool. Good thing we didn't borrow it. :)
He's just a beautiful boy with a sweet personality. We're enjoying each new part we get to know each new day.
He loves to scream (in a good way) and "talk", so I'm wondering if he got the binky to help him be quieter? What a little blessing, drool and all!
Happy Sunday from ET!
jill, marshall & silas
ps: I discovered another blogging family tonight at dinner. They were walking out and I heard the hubby say, "Please don't blog that!" ;) I think Marshall has said the same thing to me a time or two...
