Our Teenager!! 13 weeks!

Hey Everyone!! Yes we are alive!! :) You know those lists that they tell you to make...the ones that list all the things that you need to get done and you number them or separate them into: need to get done, maybe get done, won't get done. Well Blogging has ended up at the bottom of the 'won't get done' list! Sorry! That's what happens when you don't have internet and when you do it's really slow and you have school work to get done!

Anyways!! Here's the bambino! He's 13 weeks old! I haven't weighed him today but last week-12 weeks-he was 13 lbs. 8 oz. and was 23 3/4 inches! Pretty good considering at his 8 week check-up he was 10 lbs. 6 oz. and 21 1/2 inches! He's done a lot of growing!! We enjoy him mucho!!

As you can see he smiles! He loves to smile! He likes to talk too. He is one NOISY kiddo! Everything he does he makes noise with-including sleeping! He wakes us up quite frequently laughing or grunting or squealing. Speaking of sleeping. He sleeps about 9 hours at night and then takes 4 2-3 hour naps during the day. He eats every 3-4 hours and he apparently is getting enough to eat judging by his size! :) He loves to eat! He gets very impatient when he has to wait! He still doesn't really spit up-if he does it's a very minute amount. He loves to kick his legs and hit his arms against his tummy like Tarzan. He's starting to enjoy his bath and gets really excited and tense and kicks around! It's pretty cute! He's starting to swat at things and hold on to them. It's fun watching him learn and grow. He's starting to explore the world a lot more! He still has his plug but only has it going to sleep and sometimes not even then...he's quite fond of his fist. He tries to stuff the whole thing in his mouth....he hasn't had a whole lot of success with that! He's started to suck on just his thumb too-it's kind of funny, he'll put one finger up his nose and then have his thumb in his mouth! Oh so cute!

There's TONS more about this little guy! I just don't really have time to write! Sorry! There's lots of pictures to look at though. Sorry it will take too long to load them on here so I just put them on our web album so if you want to look at them...go ahead!! :)
Just copy and paste it! :)
P.S. Since the internet is so good up here, it froze while I was loading the past couple weeks of pictures and videos. I'll try again another time! :)

Well that's all folks!!
