So I missed posting on Rhys' actual 3 month birthday. I planned on it, I really did. It just didn't happen. Ok, on with the show.
Rhys is my little chubber man. He is rolly and solid and so unlike Ava in that respect. I never thought I would enjoy playing with fat rolls so much, but I do. The angry baby is pretty much gone. He has a temper, but when he is happy, he is really happy. He smiles all the time. He has started fussing and making noise just to get my attention. As soon as I look at him, he smiles. I am starting to wonder if he thinks it is a game. He thinks he is a big strong guy and if you have him reclining back, he tries to pull himself up to sitting. He has about a good of chance doing a sit up as I do. It doesn't work at all but he turns nice and red trying. He also doesn't like to really cuddle in when you hold him. He holds his head up and looks around.
He is just figuring out how to laugh. He has done it a few times, but definitely not everyday. His first laugh was at Ava. His biggest laugh was a couple days ago in the bathtub. I think the water dribbling on him tickled him and he just cracked up. He laughed for a good 5 minutes. We got a bit of it on video.
He does not have the bobo addiction like Ava did. He likes it, but I am pretty sure once he can master always getting his fingers in his mouth, he won't really care for it too much.
Most importantly, he is loved to death by his big sister. She has made him sing "hot potato, hot potato" moving his hands around for him. She will sit and talk to him and play with him, keeping him content for quite a while. Ava has made it possible for me to take many showers. I think as he gets older, they will have even more fun together. Ava says, "He is going to get bigger, and then we will play together, and we will be friends. Then we will get a NEW baby."
