You have had some nights where you just want to cry and whine between the hours of 9-11pm. I'm not sure why babies always want to cry around that time. But after that you will fall asleep around 11:30pm and sleep for a good 4-5 hrs. Then you will wake up again two hours after that and then again two hours after that. At that point Dane is also awake so we all get dressed and ready for the day and play for a little while. Then you go down for a nap for about an hour. You take several short naps though out the day and usually take one long one. Some times you will even take your long nap when our brother Dane does!
|You love to smile and you pretty much always have your mouth open.|
Speaking about laying on your back you just will not sleep on your back. You have to be on your side with your face snuggled into something soft like a blanket, the couch, or me.
You are outgoing, little Mikey. You love to smile and "talk" with people. I think it is so fun to see your distinct personality already shinning through. And shinning is the only way to describe it, everyone can see it. You know that song "Every Star is Different" I think of you when it says "some are bright and happy". I hope you always shine brightly little one.
This month was a really special one because you were blessed on July 7th by your daddy in the Anaheim 4th ward. Lots of family and friends were there to celebrate you. Something extra special was that your Mimi (my mama) and Papa (Michael) came all the way from South Carolina to be there for your special day! They really do love you and had so much fun snuggling you and trying to spoil you. After the blessing everyone came back to our home and had lunch. You were perfect that day and looked perfect in your little white outfit. Your blessing was really special.

You are a drool monster! You drench everything that you wear, I wear, and daddy wears. It's because you are teething and I expect to see some teeth push through soon. I let you chew on my wrist, knuckle, and cheek bone all day long.
Your hair is still mostly dark and your eyes seem to be going to the hazel/light brown side. Your skin is starting to lighten up too. Looks like you have more of my coloring.
You have been spending time with your Aunt Sandra Manneck lately and she just adores you. You guys like to just sit and cuddle. You are lucky to have so much family that loves you.
|Dane likes to get real close to you and stomp his feet. It makes me a little nervous but you love it.|
We are so grateful that we (mama and daddy) were sealed in the temple so that our family can be together for time and all eternity. Knowing this brings us so much peace and joy. There are so many wonderful blessing that you get when you go to the Temple. Daddy and I know this to be true.
Love you my little Mikey
