He likes the owl best

He can stare at it forever.

11 Weeks old!  Wow how time flies by.  This little man loves for us to stand him up and watch as he shakes his little hips as he tries to "figure out his control system" (as his father would say it.)  He is the perfect little inverted pendulum..... and he is learning to speak engineer.  He absolutely loves his swing but still is not so fond of tummy time.  For a while he hated being swaddled, but now seems to require it again.  This kid LOVES kisses and coos happily as we softly nuzzle his sweet face.  Such a snuggler, this little one.  He is getting so vocal!!  He has a love hate relationship with his binki.  Gotta keep it near.   I still think he prefers his hands.  He already loves to watch everything we are doing... if he is not staring cross eyed at those swatters (he still doesn't have a lot of control of those arms and looks like he is swatting flies all day long.)  Peek-a-boo is still a weird concept and is not quite funny, but not scary either....just weird.  Some days his eyes look like his fathers, some days they look like mine.  He loves the bumbo.... for about one minute.   This kid LOVES the grocery store.  Not sure if its all the colors and shapes, or the intense amount of attention he gets.  He is holding up his head like a champion and is the smartest, most talented baby I know.  I'm pretty sure he is going to be a mamma's boy.... I can't say that I am unhappy about that. :)  But, he loves his Daddy immensely and is happiest on Saturdays when we can all play.  He is kinda vain and loves to look at himself in the mirror or at pictures of him on the computer.  I can't believe how much he already knows.  He likes when I call him my little fat baby, but everyone still thinks he is only a couple days old because he is still small.  Common people, he is holding up his head and watching you fiddle with your keys!  He is still not letting out full laughs but still makes it obvious when he thinks somethings funny. I am convinced he is going to look like a little old man, as he is getting really thin hair on top and on the sides.  The back of his head (where he doesn't lay) remains perfectly lush and messy.  I wish I could know if he was going to be a blond or a brunette.  I hope he gets dark curly hair like Mark.  He still chirps as he is falling asleep and is starting to sleep 5-7 hours consistently at night before he needs a snack.  He smiles at everyone that comes near and has his own little posse of 10 year old girls at church.  Basically he is just an awesome little man. Keep growin buddy... but not too fast Ok?

Not sure what happened here, but I did like any good mother would do... snapped some pictures and then saved him.
