Henry is sleeping from about 8:30 PM until about 6:00 AM every day, at which point he eats and goes back down until around 10:00 AM. Plus he takes three naps, about an hour each during the day. That's like 16 or 17 hours of sleep per day. Holy smokes! Is that even normal? I don't know, but I'll take it.
Henry can't get enough of his hands lately. He sucks on them noisily any chance he gets. The other day he jammed them in his mouth so far he made himself throw up, ha ha. He especially loves to suck on mom or dad's hands (which, for the record, I think is gross). We just have to make sure we've washed our hands really well right before! He's not so much a fan of his binky these days either, which is a blessing because it means we won't have to wean him from it in the future.
Henry smiles like crazy now. All you have to do is catch his eyes and say his name softly. Plus this boy is ticklish as all get-out! Thighs, tummy, ribs, neck...you name it. So cute.
I don't know how much this boy weighs but he looks giant to me! He's got rolls on his arms & legs, which I love. (Never had a baby with rolls before!) He started wearing his 6-9 month clothes at 12 weeks, so yeah. He's throwing off my shopping groove big-time. (Special shout-out to Grandma Spencer for saving the day and buying Henry a new Sunday outfit that fits his body AND the season at the same time. You are a lifesaver!)
Henry's hair is wild. He's got Chris's sweet cowlick (just like emme has). It wants to stand straight up so we just own it and rock the faux-hawk most days. Emme's little hands can't resist touching it.
Henry has the most sensitive skin in the land. If someone holds him who is using laundry detergent he doesn't agree with, he'll come home with one side of his face all red and flared up where it touched their clothing. So we keep everything mild & gentle around here, and wash everything like crazy. Now that the weather's warming up, I'm afraid to put sunscreen on him. I'm going to go with the keep-him-covered-up method for as long as I can, until I find some fancy schmancy super-sensitive sunscreen for him.

We love you, Henry & Emme!
