Ryan can get Victor to just cackle. My batteries died, so by the time I ran upstairs, got new ones, and came back down, Victor was winding down. But you can still hear a few giggles.
Victor has been a very happy boy these last few days. He loves to laugh. He also loves to watch Derrick and Eve play. He's enjoying his walker - as he gets to stand up. He's almost sitting by himself. Such a difference between the other two kids (super chubs) and Victor (thin little guy!). He's so much more mobile. He's rolling over like a pro (working on rolling from back to stomach) and loves to sit up like a big boy on your lap (no laying back whatsoever!).

The older two have LOVED being outside the last few days. We had a picnic at the park yesterday for dinner, and they slept GREAT last night! We went for a short walk today and they blew bubbles as they walked. It was cute. There is a house 2 blocks away that burned down, so I took them down to see it to show them what happens when people play with fire. I obviously have no idea how it burned, but as a mom, I'll use it to enforce them to never play with fire :o)

We got our new dryer last night. Did our first loads of laundry (I'm DAYS behind) last night, and this morning, I threw another load into the dryer. Our whites. When I took them out after work, they were multicolored. One of the kids put a handful of color crayons in one of my socks, and a bunch had fallen out :o( Our brand new dryer is now colored on the inside also. I hope I can get the crayons out of the whites, especially the baby quilt Mom had made Derrick before he was born. Our first two kids used it, and I was cleaning it so Victor could use it now. *Sigh*
OH! I also went upstairs to get Victor this morning, and he was laying on his back. I'm like - I don't remember putting you on your back! (All three kids have slept on their tummies) He had rolled over again! So it's official, he's becoming mobile!

Since we were in, she checked his left hip. It still "clunks" a little bit when she moves it around, so we did x-rays to see if it's coming out of place or what's causing the "clunk". All I have to say, is they should have nurses hold down babies, NOT MOMS! Oh he was screaming and his legs had red marks on where I had to hold him down (since you're not supposed to move when getting an x-ray). I know I wasn't hurting him, but he was ticked off! We'll find out either Friday or Monday what the x-rays say. So say a prayer that Victor's hip is just fine/will heal on its own, as I do not want to have to have him put in a brace or cast! Can you imagine a 3-month old in a cast?! He's not supposed to go in a walker or exersaucer, which is fine - we don't have either one right now! I do have a free one coming, but I guess we'll have to wait to put him in it for a short time.
PS - he's now 12# 5 oz. He gained 2 pounds in the last 5 weeks! I still can't believe how not-chubby this little guy is! Derrick was over 12 pounds by 2 weeks! But Victor is just a lean little guy :o) Super cute if I dare say so :o)

PS - I also got to rock Eve today before she went to bed (hey, she was up for anything to not have to go to bed for a few extra minutes!). It was kind of nice. She's a good cuddler. However, it also brought back some not-so-fun memories of her as a baby. :o( But she's bigger now, and so much better to be around!
PPS - for those of you that didn't know this - Mom and Marcie have been traveling around Austria for the last few days. Mom still won't be home until sometime next week. That would be so much fun to do! I really hope Marcie goes to Germany next spring to study so I can come and visit her! I've always wanted to go there - see where my great-grandparents came from. I'm pretty much 100% German, however I do not have any of the German traits - like stubbornness :o)
