Why Little Elvis doesn't like sleep

I feel bad, because my last few posts haven't been bragging on our little guy. Little Elvis is doing new stuff everyday, and I'm sure these accomplishments are causing some of his sleep issues.

1. He's much more social. Little Elvis has the biggest, most adorable, (I know, I'm his mom, but Bob agrees with me on this.) most dimply smile I've ever seen. All I have to do is blow a raspberry or give him a grin and he breaks into his own. And he'll coo at me while doing it. Why sleep when you can communicate and spread such happiness?

2. Little Elvis is starting to roll over. He's not doing a complete 360 -- we're more at the 90 (did about a 175 once) -- but this whole rolling to his side is pretty fun for him. Bob and I make such a big deal about it that he knows this is a big accomplishment and I read that babies practice this trick in their sleep. I know he's attempted to sit up while sleeping on my lap so I think that's a possibility. He started working on this new trick a few weeks ago, and he's still polishing up his skills.

3. He's spotted his toes. He spied them a few weeks ago, but he's been folding himself in half pratically to touch them. They finally made it into his mouth Saturday afternoon! (My dad takes total credit for this, because he showed Little Elvis where his toes are.) This whole folding in half trick is cute, and I hope it isn't bad to let him do it.

4. His eyes are changing colors! Bob and I have been wondering for a while what color they will be. At the moment, they are grayish-greenish-brownish depending on the light. His eyelashes are getting darker and longer, just like his daddy's.

See why he's not sleeping?

That was so cute to watch! It was neat to see him in live action. I also have to say, I LOVE your accent! You probably would say that I have the accent but I love to listen to you and your husband talk! Little Elvis is indeed adorable!

Thank you for the compliments all around! Sometimes I forget about the accent. I am curious to see if Little Elvis will have one or not.
