Crowing, Cooing: Sam as Howler Monkey
"He likes to play, doesn't he?" asked our new doctor at Sam's four-month checkup. The answer is YES. He loves to be tickled, he loves to laugh, especially loves it when I chant and sing, and mostly, right now, he loves to do vocal scales that rise to ear-splitting squeals, earning him the monikers Howler Monkey and Howard Dean (that's all Daddy...)... He's 15 1/2 pounds, adores his sister, can pinch and kick and roll over and is trying very hard to sit up. Loves to cuddle. Still no hair. Loves to kick on air and in the water. Gets compliments for his beautiful head.
