Super Hank!

Hank turned 4 on September 18, and we had his party the following Sunday.
The theme was Superheros, which he was into until recently.  Now he says he doesn't like Batman!
That will probably change again!  Three was a challenging age...we shall see what four brings to us!
The party was very nice and we were blessed with great weather.  Hank loved the decorations and the pinata was a hit for him and the other kids!
The weekend before his birthday I took him, Luke, and Mimi to the ocean and on our way back we stopped at Toy's R Us to pick out a big boy bike.  Hank was in Heaven in the toy store and had to try out every bike.  He chose an orange one, his favorite color!  He always says, "thanks for buying that bike for me!"
He was upset on his actual birthday, because he could not understand why people were not there for his party!  I tried to tell him how lucky he was because he got to celebrate twice!   He didn't get that.
Anyhow, here are some photos, well a lot of photos:

8, 9, 10!

This has been the fastest year of my life!  I can't believe Luke is going to be one in just two months!!
We had a busy Summer, and just had Hank's fourth birthday and his big party.  Now we are working on getting ready for Halloween and all the fun things of Fall.
I hope to post some of the highlights of our Summer in another post.
For now, lets talk about my baby...
He got three more teeth.
He started doing the army crawl right after he turned 8 months, and just last week he started to pull himself up onto furniture, and the bathtub.  He still has not crawled on his knees.  He gets himself up on all fours and can't figure out how to move, so he gets down and does his army crawl.
He claps his hands and makes all kinds of noises.  He says Mama now too!
Last week I started giving him the puff snacks and he eats stage 3 baby foods and mashed bananas.
He still gets breast milk.
He is not a good sleeper.  He wakes up around 2 am and then comes into our room to nurse.  He ends up staying there the rest of the night.  Bad habits started already, but before we know it he will be a teen, and not want to come around us:(
In September he had his 9 month check-up and he was in the 95th percentile for his weight and the 98th for his height, and 75th for his head:)
He also got his first haircut in August!
