3 Months Old!
Though I don’t have a picture of it, Elliott is officially in his crib full time. In fact, this month he has become very aware of his crib, so when I put him down for a nap, he recognizes his surroundings and starts to protest instantly. His eyes look to the left, then to the right, then they get HUGE and he looks at me like, “Noooooo!!!!!!” It’s devastatingly cute.
Elliott got to meet two of my dearest friends this month!
This month Elliott learned how to push his shoulders off the ground during tummy time!
He loves clasping his hands, and shoving them both in his mouth. So cute, until he gags on them…which is a fairly common occurrence :).
He learned how to roll over from his back to his front! He has been soooo close, and he finally just did it officially with absolutely no help on June 24. A couple weeks ago he learned how to get to his side and then he’d roll onto his tummy but his arm would get stuck underneath him and he wouldn’t be able to push himself up. June 24 was the first time that he rolled to his side, rolled to his tummy, AND got his arm out from underneath him! Yay, Elliott!! Here are some funny pics of him “getting stuck” on his arm:
On June 20th, when he was exactly 3 months old, he (for the first time) got his arm out from under him when on his tummy, but I had to help him with the first half, as you can see.
On June 24th, he did it all by himself! Although I didn’t get video of him rolling to his side on his own, I promise he did :). This video is hilarious, by the way. He chokes himself a couple times before we get to the interesting part…like I said, I don’t know how to edit video yet :).
Elliott talks to himself all the time and has this incredibly cute giggle! We LOVE it! Delightful squeals have filled the Moberg home this month! I haven’t been able to get a great video of him talking, but this is not too bad. Here is a little sample of him talking:
And here is a video of him singing with his dad….it’s a long one, but worth every minute of your time…soooo cute!
Elliott is just beginning to learn the concept of grabbing things. He still mostly does it by accident, but one evening he grabbed Brian’s nose over and over and over again, and it looked pretty intentional! It’s a start :).
