New things I'm doing this past week

Even though he doesn't sleep in the crib yet, he now spends some awake time (maybe 5-10 min) looking at his mobile and listening to the music.

One of the cool things Cannon is doing is noticing his giraffe stuffed animal that Dennis named "Bob". He seems to be most interested in Bob than any of his other toys.

Video -- touching "Bob"

Cannon's favorite places

The Bouncy Seat

The car seat -- He sleeps in it too because he likes it better than lying in his bassinet.

In Dad's arms wearing his Ohio State gear. Lookin good in scarlet and gray! Baby Buckeye!

Cannon has been sleeping lots the past week. Unfortunately, it's not for extended periods of time and much more during the day than at night, but we take it when we can get it.
