Henry Update!

So it's been a while since I've written an update about my beautiful son. I will share the latest update here:

Age: 11 weeks 4 days
Weight: he's a big boy! He's about 17 pounds now lol
Length: not sure specifically but he's in 6-9 month clothes. i would guess he's about 26 inches long
Eye color: i'm pretty positive they're transitioning right now. they are blue/grey/green at the moment. i'm really interested to see what color they turn out to be!
Hair: lots and lots of straight brown hair
Sleep: doing great, he goes to bed around 10:30 or so, sleeps until almost 5:00AM, eats and goes back to sleep until 7:15ish when Daddy leaves and then he eats again and sleeps in bed with me until about 8:15 or so (9:00 if i'm REALLY lucky)
Food: om nom nom breastmilk

Henry Likes:
- his new high chair! he loves to sit up and talk to everyone
- his dog Scout that you can plug in to the computer and it says his name and everything! so cool
- laying on a blanket on the floor and playing with everyone
- having his feet out of his sleep sacks so he can kick
- mommy's boobies
- splashing in the bath with his hands
- when mommy sticks out her tongue and says "blah blah blah blah"

Henry Doesn't Like:
- getting dried with the hooded part of the towel
- anyone touching his head ever
- having his nails cleaned
- being put down while sleeping
- too much time underneath the play gym
- being stopped in the car for too long
- being too hot

. we set up Henry's high chair today and he loves chatting to us in it. So cute
. he smiles so much and is just sooo talkative
. he really, really holds his head up well now
. can roll halfway over!
. he's really aware and intelligent. he's very conversational and engaging
. he smiles and laughs and thinks about things
. he really pays attention to his dog toy that talks to him and sings and says his name

cute memories from this week:
- putting him in his high chair for the first time, he smiled and laughed and told me big stories
- i got out of the shower today and he was laying on his little bed i keep in there and i said, "hi!" and he said, "hi!" back at me LOL it was totally coincedental that the sound he made was exactly like the word "hi" but it was sooo funny!
- he smiles and talks to me while i do my makeup and hair
- sometimes he pops off the boob just to give me a big smile
- recently when he falls asleep he'll just let out this huge laugh in his sleep! it is SO CUTE
- he LOVES bath time so much, he grins at me and plays and just laughs and talks to me...twice early in the week he cried when he had to get out!
- he kicks his feet and waves his arms around when he plays on the floor, he gets so excited
- today he woke up in his swing and talked to the sheep on the mobile for several minutes! he was happy to see them
- in the morning he is so glad to see me :) he gives me the biggest smiles ever and i love it so much

he's wonderful and i love him soooo much
