Levi : 12 weeks

Likes: looking at "the baby" (ie himself) in the mirror on his swing, the morning...seriously this boy wakes up happy to see the world! Lots of smiles and babbling. Napping in his swing (see picture below). "Talking" with people. Lots of goos and gahs and even a few mas from this guy! Dressing up in matching outfits with his siblings. It was so fun Easter Sunday he did it again the next Sunday as well! Oh wait. Maybe that's just something I like. But he tolerated it so it counts!

Dislikes: When his mom doesn't hear his cries at night and he has to wait to eat! Over the past four weeks his cry has changed. It's no longer squeaky and sqwauky....and sometimes I don't recognize it at night and it takes me longer to wake up. Oops. Its terrible but true.

Quirks & habits: He is finally sleeping better at night. More like a baby and less like a newborn. He eats around 8pm and then not again until sometime between 2 and 5 am. And it's awesome! I feel human again. Up until this recent change in sleep habits he had been my worst sleeper yet. All of his siblings were sleeping through the night (like a solid 8-10 hours) by two months. Not this guy. Night time is quality mom-son time in his world!

Oh and he has on his own accord decided he prefers to eat every 2.5 to 3 hours instead of every 2 hours during the day. This change has also been awesome for me!

This last one I am labeling as a quirk. Not a habit....

Because there is no way my baby is old enough to roll over! Nope. Not my baby. Plus it can't be a habit until he does it A LOT. And the three times in a row during tummy time at 11 weeks doesn't count as a lot:)  Funny...not much tummy time has happened this past week. That's odd;-)

Reasons why I am currently smitten with him: Um. Hello gorgeous blue eyes! Whats not to love?!

But seriously. He's at a great stage. I just love everything about him right NOW. He eats well. He sleeps well enough. He smiles and babbles. He loves interacting with people. Especially his big brother and sisters. And yet he is still small enough that he cuddles great. And he is happy to be along for the ride (wherever that may be!). He has no real set schedule so we can go and do whatever we please when we please because he will nap pretty much anywhere. I want to just freeze him at this age forever...or at least a few more months!
