Time Flies When You're...Sleep Deprived

As of yesterday we've managed to keep Baby Boy around for FOUR WHOLE MONTHS!  I'll just give myself a little pat on the back.  It feels like a pretty big accomplishment!   Having a new baby in the house can be rough on everyone, we've got the bags under our eyes to prove it.  Even still, we have felt so blessed to have him to snuggle and love and squoosh.  I hear moms wish their little ones would stay babies, and cringe at every sign of them growing older.  I've never really experienced that, until recently!  I could enjoy his baby-ness forever!

It's gone by so fast and I feel like so much has happened.  We are so happy to have this little man in our lives.  Even Twodles gets all up in his space any chance he can.  Poor Scooter's gonna have to learn to enjoy the constant mauling.

A few highlights about Baby Boy:

He has a couple of nicknames-

"Scooter" because he scoots by kicking his legs as if he's swimming, and is now semi-mobile.

"Tin-Tin" his cooing sounds like he's speaking Hebrew.  Tinok is Hebrew for Baby Boy.

"Coo-pah-j" Twodles calls him that.

He's pretty strong (willed)-

Scooter sleeps best swaddled, but he does a pretty good job at always breaking free from the straightjacket swaddler.  It's going to be an interesting transition.

He's getting ready for food-

Whenever we are eating he follows whatever it is that we put in our mouth.  We are just waiting for the drool to hit the floor before we give in and let him indulge on the greatness of food.

He's a bouncer-

He loves to bounce himself up and down while standing on your lap.

He's still as smily as ever and so adorable-

We sure love you bud, and can't wait for all the many more smiles you'll bring to our faces!
