Bert must be going though another development spurt because he has been doing lots of feeding. It's scary to think what a "spurt" means since he is already 12 lbs and gaining about 2/3 of a pound a week. I think I've been saying this for a while but he's smiling at us even more and being awake and bright eyed for long periods. This increased awareness and ability to see is great, but it means that going out to eat is a much a lot more work, since one of us will have to take Bert out for as stroll or take a break so Bertram can get a meal himself. In fact we went out for a stroll in the big Cadillac stroller just yesterday to pick up what turned out to be a stylish burp cloth and some baby exercise DVD's. Not exercise for Bert, exercise that Bert can help his mom with. (though daddy will stick with the baby curls.) Bert and Rachel went to visit Charley Putnam Peskay Who for this one brief moment is half Bert's age and almost half Bert's size. I haven't gotten to meet him yet myself. And My friends Michael and Lisa just had twins this morning. Soon enough all these babies will have their chance to become friends at play dates, but for the time being, it's the parent support network :) I'll pass on the baby photos for the twins as they arrive.
