15 1/2 weeks

Brendan is 15 1/2 week now and growing every day! He is changing so much, it just amazes me. He is starting to be more content sitting in his bouncy chair (except when mommy is at work, then he doesn't like to be put down...). He loves grabbing toys and playing with them now, and is showing a HUGH interest in our food. I was eating a piece of bread the other day and he looked at it, spit out his pacifier and started making the motions for wanting a bottle. I let him gnaw on it a little bit, and he was loving it! I think we will be starting rice cereal any day now! This is the first week back at work for me and I am missing the boys. But, Daddy is doing a great job taking care of them. They are all working on getting used to each other without mommy around during the day. Brendan is having a hard time adjusting to having some independent time. He is a little man that wants nothing more than to be held constantly, but obviously that is not something we can do with a 3 year old, housework, cooking, etc. to get done in the house. Smiles are all over the place with Brendan. He loves to laugh and give us his shy little smiles all the time. He LOVES his brother. The other day Liam and Brendan were just sitting there talking to each other and laughing. It was the most adorable thing I have seen. Liam has really been a lot more helpful when it comes to his brother too. The other morning I was getting ready for work and Brendan was tired, but wouldn't fall asleep. When Liam woke up I asked him to lay next to his brother and tickle his back, and Brendan fell right asleep! Liam was so proud! We have a check up next Thursday to see how big our little man is getting and for more shots....

Here is a picture of our adorable smiley boy!
