Busy, Busy Month

Well, well, well, where do I begin? I have seen you grow in so many ways this month, and of course this was the month I decided to take a hiatus from blogging! I'm going to have to be as short and sweet as possible because this is the fifth time I've tried to write this post over the last month, and I've sat down an additional three different times today. I'm bound and determined to finish RIGHT now!
( I didn't finish right then, it took another 24 hours...)

As of June 1, your adjusted age is 10 weeks, you weigh 12 lbs., 24" long, you wear 3 month clothes and we are using up the last of your size 1 diapers! In the last month, you...
Started to breastfeed- every 2-3 hours during the day, every 4-6 hours at night. woohoo!!
Smile, goo and gaa a lot! Its the sweetest thing ever!
Are a busy, busy boy! Your arms and legs are always moving a mile a minute.
Have started to loose your hair on the top and back of your head, you've got a real cool horseshoe style going on.
Have started to recognize Momma and Daddy's faces, and your grandparents' voices.
Like to look out windows, at ceiling fans, and love to feel the wind on your face.
Still love the car, most of the time you fall asleep, but more and more I see you just looking out the window or sun roof. 
Turn your head and follow Molly when she walks by you, this week you laughed at her when she was scratching her neck.
Love to lay under your play mat and swing at your animals, you are getting pretty good at it, too.
LOVE your excersaucer (jumper) even though you are too small for it (I rigged it with a box under your feet and a blanket stuffed around you for support). You are currently being entertained by it right now so I can finish this post, video below!
Only cry when you are hungry, tired (you started rubbing your eyes this week, super cute), or you want to look around.
When you do get upset, you have big crocodile tears and turn up your bottom lip. Its. pitiful. 
Suck on your fist to soothe yourself, and you've started to drool.
Still get the hiccups at least once a day.
Like to sit up like a big boy either propped up over a shoulder, in your bumbo seat, someone's lap, or in between the sofa cushions.
Have spit up in my hair, on my face, and on 90% of my sleepwear... 
Will only let me trim your nails when you are asleep... don't know if that counts as letting me though?
Will sometimes find the TV when its on, so we are having to turn you away or turn it off... sheesh!
Go to work out with Momma three days a week. You either sleep or dance the whole time.
Met your cousins, Uncle Tim, Aunt Liz, and your great grandparents on the Crews side.
Got your four month shots, it was pretty pitiful. It was the first and only time (so far) I've felt truly helpless when trying to care for you. 
Celebrated my first Mother's day, I love being your Momma!
Went to Hilton Head with the Wood clan, your Nana planned the trip after we told her we were expecting you. I think she just wanted a guaranteed week with you all to herself. You are still trying to get used to the lack of attention you are getting... poor baby. 

I think thats it for now, I'm sure I've missed something! I can't believe you are almost five months old, but then again its hard to remember our life before you arrived. We love you, sweet boy!!
