~ 3 Months ~

Happy 3 months my  little lovebug!!

You continue to light up our lives day by day sweet boy. I can't imagine what our lives would be without you now that we have you. You make me laugh and laugh, like genuinely laugh out loud. Most of the time (if you're fed and not sleepy) we can just look at you and you'll give us a huge grin in return or you'll laugh at us! You are SO MUCH fun and provide constant entertainment to us!

Here's what you've been up to:

You are wearing size 3 diapers and 3 month clothing. I've already put away all of your newborn and 0-3 month clothing!
You are also growing out of your swaddle blankets, but you don't sleep very well if your arms aren't locked down so we're trying to find some kind of resolution!
You have more control over your neck and will hold your head up on your own now. It's still a little wobbly, but you are doing great and we can sit you in your Bumbo seat for little bits at a time.
You still hate tummy time and will not pick your head up if I lay you down for it. You do a great job at it though if it's on your own time! I think you'll be stubborn like your mama!
I'm guessing you have discovered your hands, although I never did catch you staring at them for long periods of times like other parents say. You have them in your mouth constantly! You would put both of them in there at the same time if you could! You put your pointer finger in a little hook and suck on it vigorously. We can hear you making sucking noises from another room away!
You drool like there is no tomorrow!
You love for us to clap your hands together and stomp your feet around and laugh incessantly when we do.
You also laugh when we tickle your neck and tummy. I LOVE that you are ticklish. It's the cutest thing!
You talk up a storm now. No more just the little coo here and there.. you are cooing and blowing raspberries and OOOOing nonstop!
Just today actually, you held your bottle on your own for ohhh... about 3 seconds. Just a little bit of time, but you are trying!
You love when I stick my tongue out at you and I can tell that you are trying to do it back.
You LOVE watching the TV already! I think you just like the bright colors, but it is funny to see you and your dad on the couch together "watching" football!
Sometimes when you smile, you tilt your head to the side and put your hands up to your face like you are bashful... adorable!
You sleep like a champ! You like to go to bed a little earlier now (between 6:30 and 7:00) and sleep until between 4 and 5, then go back down until about 8. Last night you slept for 12 hours straight.. 6:30 to 6:30. Thank you!!
You are eating between 30 and 36 ounces a day. You go all night without eating so you'll do 6 ounces every 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours during the day.
You fit in your big boy stroller much better and love a walk!

I can't believe I have a 3 month old!
