While at work I was asked by a lady who had a nine week old, and just found out I had a 12 week old son, "do you find any time for sleep? we don't..." and all I could politely say was, "we do pretty good. Our son is doing good." But of course, I really wanted to brag about the fact that Dixon sleeps 6 to 8 hours a night and has pretty much since he was a month old. I think it pretty much runs 50/50 on whether Dixon wakes up himself or we have to wake him up. When he does wake up himself, like this morning, he just lays in his crib and talks and coos. He very seldom wakes up crying, not that he doesn't cry mind you. The other night Julie and the woman's group were hanging out at Greenlake and he cried pretty much all the way home. And it wasn't any piddly little whimpering either... no this was a torrential rage! Guess he liked hanging out at the lake...

Dixon is growing so fast (we unofficially have him at close to 25" in length and maybe 14 0r 15 pounds now) that he wears 6-9 months clothes for his length and 3-6 months in his torso. He will be 3 months old on Wednesday next week. He is too tall to fit in his bathing tub on the side that he should be on, yet when we stick him on the other side we have to hold his head up all the time because he doesn't quite have the strength for that yet. He is almost there. He still really doesn't like tummy time, he puts up with it, but he moves his arms and legs fast an furious when on his back and I swear that if I just flipped him over during one of these flurries, he would just scoot across the floor lickity split. His dark hair, which for the most part all fell out, now is growing in blond and light brown, though it is getting darker by the day one wonders if it will ever get as dark as it was at birth.

He eats his hands all the time now, they are his favorite toys. Actually he really likes to chew on one finger. Julie wonders if he is in early stages of teething, so she has started giving him teething toys, which he will hold and chew on for awhile but then drops them like the rest of his toys, so he can go back to chewing on his fist or his finger. Though he reaches out and grabs things quite often, he isn't quite into holding things yet.

He is all smiles and giggles now. He doesn't laugh quite yet, but he has managed a few chuckles. He loves it when you bounce him (thanks Grantie) and even loves it more when you make silly faces and noises. He even likes it when you take his photo. I am sure that he will be laughing up a storm here really soon.

He just had his morning bath and massage and now is sitting in mom's lap and just taking it easy being the amazing wonder boy that he is.

Our 4th ended with what sounded like WWIII happening outside our apartments, but it started much calmer as we spent the day hanging out with Uncle Scott & Aunt Jen. We had great food, great fun and Dixon learned how to play Monopoly...

...which resulted in Uncle Scott having to change a diaper. Dixon didn't complain and he even let Uncle Scott play with him afterwords.
