3 MONTHS OLD

My how you have grown. I can't believe you are a quarter of a year old, 12 weeks, 3 months!!! Where has the time gone? I feel like every time I turn around it's saturday again. Maybe now that we are officially and completely moved in time will slow down a little. Because honestly... if it doesn't... I don't know what I am going to do!!! I am slowly realizing how quickly this stage of life is going to pass.  I am already missing his infant infant stage, guess I'll have to have another one ;) kidding... kinda! (babies are addicting)



You weigh 16 pounds and 4 ounces!!!! You are a little tank :) Strangers do not believe me when I tell them you are 3 months old

Rolling over does not interest you much, but you HATE being your tummy sa bad that you try with all your might to get on your back. It's really cute.

Sy you are a HUGE smiler, you smile at just about anyone or anything, and sometimes you let out a little chuckle at the same time. My hearts melts multiple times a day.

You loves his aunty Melynne and aunt Chandler :) smiley eyes with them all day long!

Your legs are extremely strong. You can stand up and bare your own weight with my fingers under your armpits or just holding your hands. Your balance isn't quite there yet so some support is definitely needed. I am in trouble when you start walking, I can tell your fast moving legs are just going to take off and never stop.

My favorite part of this stage is watching little bits of your personality shine through. Normally this happens when you are well rested and fed, all your needs are met and you are just YOU. Your eyes have an excited look all the time, and you are curious about everything.

Your love of ceiling fans has not decreased in the slightest.

You have been sleeping SO much this week. I'm talking like 3 hour naps mid day after your morning 1 hour nap and one more in the evening before bath time. I am loving it :)

Speaking of bath time- oh how you love the water, you are my baby after all. During our bath you love to curl your knees up to your chest and push my hand back with your head so you can float on your back and kick, kick, kick. Those legs NEVER STOP. You have gotten water up your nose a time or two and you actually laughed.... maybe it tickled? Hopefully that reaction doesn't let up.

Just the other day Kim was holding you face to face and you leaned away from her, turned your torso around so that you were facing me, you leaned towards me with your arms stretched in my direction and you whimpered a little. It was the most intentional, grown up toddler thing you have ever done.  As soon as you were back in my arms you buried your face in my chest and sucked your hand (you haven't discovered your thumb yet, you try to eat your hand). Everyone in the room awwwwed and called you a mama's boy!

You also know your daddy now, you smile and laugh at him all the time. you love to touch his whiskery face and suck/gnaw on his fingers.

You have started talking yourself to sleep while you nurse. It is really loud and monotone, so funny.
















oh honey bear :) we love you SO much I can't stand it!!!! 
You are my baby boy and I get to wake up to you every day. 
Dad and I are beyond stoked. We fight over who gets to hold you during third hour of church and every evening before bedtime.  
You are very much loved.
