I'm afraid that I've been a bit slow in posting updates concerning our youngest grandchild, Chase, and I feel bad about that. I'm getting older, time is passing more quickly, and sometimes I feel like baby Chase gets lost in the shuffle of daily life. I remember feeling the same way about my third baby. Perhaps age has something to do with it, or perhaps it's birth order, who knows?
I'm proud to be able to say that Chase is a very healthy, active, little one. He recently turned 5 months old--already! I can't believe it. Like I said, "time is passing quickly".
Chase has a very serious nature, he can look right through you with those piercing brown eyes--and he's also a "Mama's Boy". He likes to have his mother within his sight at all times! Chase also loves to eat! I've never seen a baby get so excited at the prospect of being nursed. His enthusiasm is unmistakable!
Recently, Chase discovered "his voice", and delighted all of us with the different sounds he is learning to make in his throat. He's also discovered his feet, how to hold a toy, and is currently learning to sit alone. He's got a way to go before he can sit without falling over, but he's learning.
Just yesterday, I watched as Chase found great delight in watching cousin Maddie's swim suit dangling from the ceiling fan above where he was laying. Who needs fancy toys? Ha!
I find that I haven't taken as many photos of Chase as I did of the other two "grands". (It was the same with our third child.) That could be because there's always a lot more going on, and everything takes a bit more effort than it used to. I need to do better in this department!
I did manage to take a bit of video about a month ago--which I'm just getting around to sharing. His serious side is evident in the video.
Here's little Chase enjoying one of the baby toys at MiMi's house:
