Question Puppy updates?

I know there are lots of puppies on the forum. Would love to hear their updates and milestones!
Duncan is now 12 weeks, he weighs 5 lbs. He's laid-back and funny. My daughter calls him "her baby" and he lets her hold him and put him in her stroller (she lets Bonnie be MY baby -- LOL). he just got over diapoo (stool sample neg) -- I think it was just an adjustment to a new home thing?? He's a great eater and gobbles his kibble down twice a day (6:15am abd 5pm). He's pottying great outside and adjusting super to his crate -- just follows Bonnie's lead on everything. LOL Still working on walking well on leash -- we have to pull him along a little (just part of his laid-back personality!! LOL). He sleeps all night in his crate next to my bed. We put the pups to bed at 8pm. DH takes Duncan out for a quick pee at midnight and then they get up at 6am in the morning.
How are your puppies doing???

Doc is 15 wks now and he is a BIG boy! He already outweighs Izzy and I can't imagine how big he is going to be. At 14.5 wks, he was 8 lbs. (so much for getting another small Hav!) His potty training is going ok. He will go outside, but doesn't let us know yet. He does use the pads when he needs to go, but only to pee. So, we have to watch him like a hawk!
Doc likes his kibble, so eating isn't a problem! He also plays well with Izzy, or I should say, she plays well with him. Doc's favorite activity is grabbing Izzy's hair and holding on for dear life.
Doc tells us when he's ready for bed by crying at the side of our bed. I put him on the bed and he walks over to the nightstand where his crate is and in he goes! He sleeps all night from around 8 or 9 PM to 5 AM. He's an awesome traveler, riding quietly in his crate for hours. We took an 8 hours trip and he was just fantastic to have along.
He will entertain himself by throwing his toys in the air and retrieving them. He loves bully sticks too. Right now he is sleeping in my lap, which I love! He will play fetch, but isn't addicted to it like our granddog, Zoey!
Oh, and he will go down the stairs off of our deck now.....that's huge as I take the dogs out on a leash to potty and I had to carry Doc...now I don't.

Teddy is now 13.5 weeks and at his 12 wk checkup he was a whopping 4 1/2 lbs! My tiny terror! He's doing pretty well with potty, goes on the pads in and gets treated with his favorite liver treats when he goes outside. I do need to watch him when he's not in his expen, but he has been running to his pad by the back door all on his own lately. I ordered those door bells for the back door so hopefully they will help alert us!

He eats pretty well, I am still feeding 3x's but he doesn't devour it. I got some samples of Wellness, nature's Variety, and Innova to mix in to see if he will eat it up! So far he likes the Innova

He sleeps very well, he actually tells me when it's time to go upstairs. Now when I have to get up at night I just take him in with me and he uses the pad and then goes right back to sleep. He wakes up between 6:30-7:30, depending on my schedule.

He's good on the leash, we have taken a few nice walks when it is not freezing out. He loves playing with the kids and is very into flossies right now (LOVE them!)
