Sixteen Weeks Old

Axel, 2012

The fact that I am sleepwalking through the day aside, Axel at sixteen weeks is pretty charming.

He wasn't entirely himself this holiday because he was sick, but even so he seems to be changing every day. The latest developments include a keen interest in his toys. He really looks at his Sophie the Giraffe, his crinkly cow book, and his little lamb blanket like Oh Yes. All This is MINE! My Three Worldly Poseessions! In the car on the way home from Maine, he slept all the way intently gripping his giraffe. You do not mess with this boy's giraffe...

It's also getting easier (and funnier) to try to decode what he's thinking at any given moment. In the morning, when I bring him into bed at around 7 a.m. for milk, he looks back and forth at me and Will like "This is the life." And over the Thanksgiving week he was thrilled to sit in a high chair for the first time and survey the scene from a more grown up vantage point. He's still a little wobbly in the chair (doing what Will calls his gangsta lean), but he really loves the sense of being in the thick of things.
