Henry Finds Himself!
At seven weeks old, Henry's a smart (and large) cookie. In the past couple of days, his alertness seems to have increased exponentially. An example:
We have one mirror in the house, and that's in the bathroom, so Henry really doesn't see his reflection a lot. Probably at two weeks old, I put him up to the mirror and got excited when his head was facing anywhere near the mirror. This morning, however, I held him up to the mirror and his face lit up! I mean, he was really going to town with his reflection!
I realize these photos don't really show him looking at himself, but I swear it happened. However, once the camera came out, he kind of stopped looking at himself and started staring at the black rectangle I was working so hard to maneuver into a decent shot. So, in the immortal words of Connor, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"
We're so lucky to get Henry.
Happy 7th week birthday, Henry!
