3 Weeks Old!

You are 3 weeks old today Lion Cub! As of yesterday you weighed 9.12 lbs- thats 2.6 lbs in just 3 weeks! You have already outgrown your Nanipoos newborn dipes and all your newborn shirts- you are chunking up day by day! You are cooing more and even started giving us real smiles yesterday- they are rare but you do smile!

Your cold is almost gone and your fussiness seems to be a little bit better now that mama has cut out dairy and almost all chocolate from her diet (not an easy job!!). However, you do still like to clear those lungs when you are awake! We think that you just get bored- that is the way your brother was! You always want to be moving and having a change of scenery! It seems to help if we go outside, but even that doesn't always work! You have also been spending lots of time in our Sleepy Wrap since you seem to have decided that you aren't all that fond of your swing most of the time!

We took you out to eat for the first time this last week for Grammy's birthday! You were a very good boy- nursed thorugh most of the meal and then Grammy got to have some snuggle time with you! We also left you for about an hour with Nana so that Daddy and I could go groccery shopping. Nana loved getting to spend some time with you and your brother! In fact, all your grandparents just adore holding and cuddling you!

Here you are nursing in the Sleepy Wrap

Here we are outside- you love to pull back and look around- especially at our faces!
You are just the sweetest, cutest thing and I love to snuggle you- even more so when you are happy!
Here you are after a bath with your fluffy hair! Baths are getting a little bit better but you still are not a huge fan!

Looking forward to many more adventures with you in this week to come- it's the 4th of July this weekend and we will be heading out to the cabin for your first trip! Lake- here we come!
