Louis' Bed

Ever since Louis was about 1 month old, he has slept exclusively in his car seat. Nap time, night time, all the time. It is the only place he sleeps and STAYS asleep, so whatever works, right?

Tubby Wubby

Just a little video of Louis lovin' bath time! I love his reaction when he splashes himself in the face.

Grasping

Louis has been working on this new skill for about a month. He also loves (most of the time) to sit in his bouncy chair by the Christmas Tree.

Louis ~ 3 Months

Louis is wearing 6 month size clothes and size 3 diapers (though I am squeezing him into the last of our size 2s!) I call him "Big Lou" because he really is enormous. He SCREAMS, instead of cooing like most babies. He screams a high pitched scream both when he is upset and when he is happy. He won't take a binky and fights taking a bottle, especially if Mama tries to give it to him. He has started using his hands to reach for the toys on the toy bar of his bouncy chair. He also lifts his feet to he can get a better look at them. He still loves bath time, probably his favorite part of the day. His little personality is blossoming and he is such a joyful little person to have around.

 He doesn't have his next Doctor appointment until next month.

 Not as big of a change this month as I saw from 1-2 Months I don't think, but still amazing to see these side-by-side.

Hoot!

Louis has been sleeping through the night now for several weeks. He started sleeping 4-5 hour stretches, and then 5-6 hour stretches, and now most nights he will sleep 6-8 hours. He usually goes down for the night around 11pm (naps off and on in the evenings before that) and then wakes up anywhere between 5-7am to eat, then back to sleep for a couple more hours. He is really happy in the morning when he wakes up, but only stays up for about an hour before he wants to take his morning nap - which is usually from about 10am-noon. I am happy that we are on somewhat of a schedule now with him. The rest of the day after his morning nap, is always different. Sometimes he cat naps all day, sometimes he will take another solid nap in the early afternoon.

I took these photos of Louis at 11:30pm on Thursday December 8th just after he fell asleep for the night.

Ho Ho Ho!

We took the boys to sit on Santa's lap today, and Emerick was really into it. He acted really shy, but this was the first year he didn't cry! He says he wants Santa to bring him a "Spiderman Guy" which he already has dozens of, but you can never have enough I guess! He calls Santa "Manta" but if you tell him to "say SANTA" he says it perfect. I don't get it!

Here are my cuties in the classic awkward Santa shot!

Our Elf is Back!

Our Elf finally returned this year (our 2nd year) and Emerick is really excited about it. I think he has given the Elf a name...... PETER PARKER! We will see if that name sticks, but for now....here is our own little Elf sent from Santa - Peter Parker!

Louis Giggles

Louis has been giggling for a little while now, and this video was the best I've been able to get so far! Taken at Grammy's house/playing with Grammy on 11/20/11. :-)
