Charlie at 12 Weeks

Hooray for 12 weeks!! It's amazing how the first few weeks of a baby's life feel SO long, but then things pick up and suddenly you have this big baby. I was looking at Charlie this morning as he stretched and he seemed so huge all of the sudden. He's not a newborn anymore!

I weighed him today - he's 14 pounds and busting out of his size 1-2 Pampers diapers. I love chubby babies!

Charlie has discovered his hands and loves to look at them, hold them, etc.
In case you're wondering why he's in pjs, my policy is if he blows out of his diaper in the late afternoon, I don't bother with a new outfit. He goes straight to jammies...
Charlie is on a decent sleep schedule now, going to bed between 7 and 9 p.m. (depending on if he takes two or three naps in the day) and just waking up at 4 a.m. to eat. Then he goes back to sleep and usually is up between 6 and 7 a.m. Hooray for more sleep!

He is so cute! Both of your boys are adorable. I think Eli looks a lot like Ben & Charlie looks a lot like you, but they still look like brothers. You officially win the award for the family with the most beautiful eyes!

Amen to Hooray for more sleep! He is SOOOOO cute! I always have skinny babies, well so far anyway, and am envious of chubby legs and cheeks on others :-). I just want to eat him!

Charlie is just so cute! I love his round face and big blue eyes. It's so fun to see what characteristics each child gets from their parents. And it's fun to hear Eli talking so much at his age, especially with counting. Leah just started doing that a couple of months ago.

THat's great that he is sleeping much better. Did you have to do anything specific to make him sleep better? We've been trying to get Cameron on a better sleep schedule so I can have more rest. If you have any good suggestions, please send them my way.
