Christmas Morning after he ate but before everyone else got up

For Christmas DH suggested I get a tattoo (Ive wanted one for years!) so one of my closest friends designed it and I had it done Dec 19. Its a family tattoo with a lot of meaning. The star is for Orion and the sun is for Soren. (same symbols in my siggy for them). the dream catcher strings form a love knot heart, and I have native heritage. I'm very proud of it as it represents my family.

And DS1 playing in wrapping paper lol

Baby's Name: Isaiah
Birthday: August 28
Weight @ Birth: 7lbs 5oz
Current Weight: 18lbs 13oz on Thursday
Length @ Birth: 19 or 19.5, can't quite remember either :-?
Current Length: not sure, they mismeasured and then forgot to recheck, he was 24in at 2 months, so bigger than that Lol
Where does baby sleep at night? in his crib in our room
How long does baby sleep at night? just depends, the past two nights he hasn't been sleeping as well, he'll give about a 6 hour stretch. He had been sleeping 9-11 hours....so hopefully he'll go back to what we were at soon!
Bottle, breast, or both? Breast
Baby's favorite place when awake (besides in Mommy's arms ): his sisters' arms? Lol He's held a lot and not necessarily by me, a benefit of being #4 I suppose. He does really like his playmat though, he's not a huge fan of the swing or bouncer...I even went out today and got a $30 bouncer/rocker to see if he'd like that better than ours and he doesn't seem to care for that either
Any milestones baby has hit (rolling, laughing, etc)? He's been rolling belly to back since 3 months, and laughing up a storm since then too. No back to belly yet. He is almost sitting on his own, I bet he'll be sitting by the end of the month. If I 'tripod' him (legs out, arms in front) he sits for almost a minute. Oh and he's blowing raspberries, which is super cute!
What is your baby's general temperament? Very easy going and happy! He's definitely my most content baby thus far. He'll have little conversations with you where you'd swear he's understanding and responding the whole way through Lol If he needs to be put down he's usually very content to just sit and play with his toys while you are busy and just watch what is going on around him.
Anything special going on this month? Not really, just trying to get back to normal. We've been super busy since before Thanksgiving and now we're finally getting back into the swing of just daily stuff. My birthday is on Tuesday Smile but that's about it for January.
Pictures: I'll have to upload some...and take some Lol I've been awful about pictures lately, my main camera is stuck in sepia mode. I was playing with it and now I can't figure out how I got it in sepia mode to get it out of it! It's a J-series Fujifilm finepix if anyone happens to have one Wink We are getting a canon after my birthday but I want to get that one working since it's so small and easy to take places.
