Josiah is sleeping all day long. And I am quite positive that he is busy growing, because in the space of about three days he has outgrown his 3-6 month clothes. I am not kidding. I switched all his 0-3 month clothes out, and three days later I realized that I'd better go find the next size up. It isn't that he's so very big in pounds, but he is very long and getting longer. He is getting a little bit of chub, too, which is very cute. His cheeks are filling out nicely. :)

He continues to like spending time on his tummy, and is just starting to try to hold his head up. It is pretty jerky and doesn't last long, but he's working on it.

Jonathan and Thomas have definitely adjusted to having Josiah around. Sometimes they'll be very sweet to him (kissing his head, asking to hold him, etc.) but most of the time I live in minor terror for his life. Today Thomas and Jonathan were rough-housing and chasing each other, and Thomas fell over, right on top of Josiah's head. Poor baby.

Lest you think I am a horrible mother, I will say that I do try, very hard, to keep Josiah in safe places. In this particular case he was in my lap. Thomas just managed to fall over on top of both of us.

Did I mention that Josiah has started smiling? It is utterly adorable. I will make extremely silly faces and sounds for a very long time, just for the reward of that smile.

Oh, and he can sit up, sort of, if propped in a corner. And make funny faces.

Yes, that was a lot of pictures. But his grandparents really like me now. :)

We liked you before, just for the record! But we do appreciate any and all photos you have time to post. I suspect aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends do too :-)

Oh wait ... I'm a grandparent! I meant great-grandparents!
