3 Months

You turned 3 months old yesterday! It seems so unfair that 3 months have passed already. I only blinked one time! You have grown so much in the past month and have changed so much.

You weigh about 12 pounds and can't fit into any newborn things anymore. You wear 0 to 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. You don't have much fat on you but you are solid!

Your eyes have lightened to a nice blue and we see a lot more of them these days! You still sleep a lot but have a lot more wake time, too. You have been cooing and smiling for about 3 weeks now and do it more and more each day. You seem to really like you playmat and bouncy seat and kick and shriek when you are on them.

You are still a very snuggly baby but when you are awake, you would rather be held up than be cuddled. You are eating 3 or 4 ounces when you have bottles but you prefer to nurse. You are sleeping in our bed most nights. I took down the hammock because you would cry every time the lights went out and you were in it, so you would end up in our bed anyway. But Friday night Daddy put you in the packnplay in the living room and you slept 6 hours in it! I am hoping that will become more of the norm because there have been a couple of nights you have only let me sleep 3 hours before having to go to work! I'm not sure what it is about the hours between 9pm and 1am, but you sure can be fussy then! Daddy and I have becomes fans of Mylicon lately.

Oh look! We have a photo bomber!

...aaaannd there goes the bunny.
Don't cry, Reed! We'll get the bunny back. I guess that's just part of having a big brother who is not too far out of babyhood himself. I'm sure you will have your revenge one day. He is actually pretty sweet to you most of the time.
Daddy and I do our best to protect you. We love you so much and are so glad God gave you to us. We are really enjoying having you in our lives!
