And he looks so cute…

And he looks so cute...… in his little red suit.

Jasper is coming up on five weeks old now, and is starting to develop a personality. He was very into crown moldings and lights from the day he came home, but now he is starting to recognize voices and look at that person, and looks at different parts of your face, or at your mouth when you are talking, or checks out his look in the mirror. In other words, he gets more human by the day, though he is still 90% spider monkey, and will likely continue to be indefinitely.

We have found, however, we enjoy many of the same things:
* architectural details
* eating
* staying up late
* lounging at home
* boobies
* friendly dogs
* walks in the park
* snuggling with Jamie
* The Rolling Stones and Bob Marley
* sleeping on our bellies (and not on our backs)
* having our toes free to wiggle rather than crammed into socks and booties

In all, I think we got the best Christmas gift ever this year. Hope yours was filled with magnificence as well.

    Remarkable. I wonder what new abilities he’ll have next. Congrats and Merry “belated” Christmas to the both of you! :)
