Just keeps getting better!!

First a quick catch up on my little man. Is it possible for me to love him any more than I do? He is a total mama's boy and I am just eating it up! He is the most playful baby I've had so far and loves to carry on conversations with anyone who will listen (but especially me!). He started smiling and cooing at three weeks and hasn't stopped. I think he knows he has to get his voice in now because his sisters never stop talking. He smiles with his whole face and it keeps me mesmerized. He has the cutest dimples on each side that make me melt! I couldn't even watch American Idol last week because he "talked" to me for 45 minutes straight and I couldn't look away. My cheeks hurt from smiling back and I kept getting teary-eyed cause he's so dang cute and I love him so much.

Don't get me wrong, he definitely has his fussy moments and hasn't been sleeping the greatest the past two weeks, but usually as long as he's with me, he's pretty happy. Which can get annoying and frustrating since I don't get a lot done lately. I've had 3 piles of laundry to fold on the couch for 3 days, another 1 on my bed, and all of the girls' upstairs sitting in the baskets getting wrinkly. I'm getting tired of having to walk in my towel across the house to get my "underwear" out of the dryer each morning. But oh well-I'm determined to enjoy this little guy to the fullest since Jim is dead set that he is our last one (sniff, sniff!).

Kian adores his sisters and usually smiles at them whenever they look at him. He talks to Ashtyn and Avery and loves to listen to Jordyn's sweet voice. He likes to cry for daddy and only stops when Jim feeds him! Don't worry daddy, Kian is just giving me his time right now cuz he knows he'll be playing with you for the rest of his life!
Kian is growing so fast and even though he is only 11 weeks (today), he looks and acts like a 4 month old. I've had so many people comment on how alert he is and how big he is! I am definitely feeling a little jipped since he only seemed newborn for a week! His growth has been so different from my girls and he definitely loves his food! True boy! At 9 weeks, he weighed 11 pounds and was 23 inches long! I can't believe he grew 4 inches in 2 months! I'm sad because all of the adorable clothes I bought and spent WAY too much money on, he has only worn a couple of times and is outgrowing them so fast. Which is why I'm trying to convince Jim we need another one in a couple of years!

All in all-we are totally in love with our little man and I'm afraid he's going to get spoiled from having 4 mommies and 1 proud papa! We are all smitten with him and I think his little plan of getting us all wrapped around his finger is working!
