3 months!

Dear Graham,

You are 3 months old.  It really feels like yesterday we were anticipating your arrival.  Then I blinked and here it is time for me to head back to work and you to head to daycare.  The 3 month mark is hard for me for that reason alone!  But I love the little personality you are getting and how smiley you are now!

You really are a great baby.  We hit a rough patch for a couple of weeks (around 6 weeks or so) but the last month you have seemed to relax and are really go with the flow.  You usually only cry at night when you are tired and fighting sleep.  You are pretty content most of the time.  Still aren't really taking a paci.  We even tried a different kind but that didn't seem to matter.

You love your swing...you pretty much have from the beginning.  You love to watch the mobile on it spin around.  You also enjoy just laying on your back and squirming around.  You smile a lot and carry on with us cooing.  It's adorable!!

You are nursing every 3-4 hours.  You are a great eater.  You got your first bottle a couple of weeks ago.  It took you a few times to get the hang of it and you still prefer mommy but you are doing okay with the bottle.  You take around 6 oz. when we give you a bottle.  This seems like a lot (but since I've been nursing there is no way to know how much you are taking and the dr. assured me it was fine and you were in fact probably getting that much or more nursing)...you are a little piggy.

You weigh around 13 1/2 lbs and are around 23 inches long.  Growing like a weed.  You are mostly wearing size 3-6 month clothes and are in size 2 diapers.

You started sleeping in your room last week and so far so good.  You seem to like having more room to move around - you were quickly outgrowing the bassinet.  And I think we are turning a corner on sleeping.  We put you down between 9-10 and I usually only have to go up once to feed you between 2-3 and then you sleep until around 7.  I can handle this.

You bring us so much joy and you are such a blessing to us!

You are my sweet little buddy and I love you with my whole heart!

Some pictures of you at 3 months:

And those are about the only 3 I got of you because you have a big brother who didn't like the fact that he wasn't in the pictures. 

But you didn't mind...you love your big brother!

Geez, how I wish we could make time slow down. I think Gra is looking more like Saw everyday (except the hair). They def have the same sweet smile. xoxo
