Holden is 12 weeks and 16lbs and a few ounces, double his birth weight.
He is the HAPPIEST little guy
. It is funny to say, but he is very happy-go-lucky. Carter, while very content, was much more "serious." Neither boy would ever be considered fussy. I've been blessed with two perfect sons.
He's quite strong and very determined. If I set him in the bouncy seat, he grabs the sides and pulls himself to sitting. He loves to "stand." He looks at his hands in pure awe, just making them move and watching them.
He has proven to be less tactile and more visual than Carter. As long as he can see me, he's a happy little clam. He will lay on the floor for a good stretch of time (maybe 5 minutes?), babbling away. He is very vocal, and the few instances of displeasure he has he lets you know!
He wakes up fairly often to nurse, but with him in our bed (and the cosleeper Justin built), I don't lose much sleep. He loves to sleep, and will "ask" to, once he gets very drowsy, he wants to be rocked and not nursed.
He's starting to get his own look. I used to think he was Carter's clone, but I'm noticing differences. Their complexions are very similar. Both fair with blonde hair and blue eyes.
We've had some challenges. First was the RSV, then an ear infection a month later, then allergic reactions to penicillin and Tylenol, and now we are battling a terrible diaper rash. I've been fighting it for over a week and am finally seeing some improvements! Through it all, he's been so HAPPY!
Carter adores him. He calls him "Holdy,' it is just too cute!
