And yes, he is generally this happy.
Likes: Briggs is such a happy little guy. He loves attention, and his big sisters can always make him smile and laugh. Bath time and going outside are two of his favorite activities. He loves his play mat, his spinning sea animal toy, and his rattles. He's not a big fan of books yet, losing interest quickly, but current favorites include 'Baby Talk', 'Silly Tails', and any book that makes sounds. Briggs still enjoys music, funny noises, and zerberts. He hasn't met a person he doesn't like, freely giving out smiles to anyone who talks to him. And his right thumb remains his best friend.
Getting some love from his big sister
A thumb is so nice because it's always there.
Dislikes: Briggs gets fussy when he's tired or hungry or lonely or bored.
Skills: Briggs is a mover. He can roll from his back to his stomach and stomach to back consistently. He will also scoot around and pivot around on his stomach or back. He'll work his way off his play mat or blanket, all over in his crib, and even ended up halfway under Staley's bed this morning while playing on the floor in her room.
He's happy to just play on his blanket in the yard.
Briggs is great at reaching for and grabbing toys...and then bringing them to his mouth. He also likes to grab noses, hair, his burp rag, my cup when I'm drinking, and anything else within arms reach. Briggs makes lots of cute coos, squeals, and noises, and laughs often. He is starting to enjoy games like peek-a-boo and likes when we make funny faces or sing songs to him. Briggs continues to fill our lives with joy!!
