Michael: 3 Months



This Month:
*You weigh a little over 16lbs according to our scale at home! You are definitely not a peanut like your sister was!
*You are in some 3 month clothes but a lot of 3-6 month stuff!
*You eat about every 2 hours. You are pretty efficient though and nursing sessions only take about 5 minutes or so.
*You are in a size 2 diaper and we have used cloth a lot this month.
*You have a bath every night around 8:00 and then eat and go to sleep. You are still a pretty good sleeper at night. You sleep until about 3-3:30ish eat, then go right back to sleep. After your first feed you are up about every 2-3 hours until about 8:00.

Your hair is still a little bit auburn, but it's lightening up. I am really going to miss it if it goes completely blonde!

You are definitely still in a hold me phase and always want to be held. You like to face out and see what everyone is doing. You will take a long nap if you are in the ergo or being held, otherwise you usually only stay asleep for about 30 minutes or so. But I know you will get there...eventually. You still aren't the biggest fan of your swing or bouncy, but you are getting more interested in your toys and are getting a little more content. You are starting to grasp your toys and you always bring them straight to your mouth.

Evidently we waited too long to try giving you another bottle because you want nothing to do with it. You just push it our of your mouth, look at us like we're trying to poison you , and then get ticked. We've tried a TON of different kinds too. You better believe we're going to keep at it tough. Mama and daddy need a date night! We have tried I think 4 different kinds of pacifiers and I'm pretty sure it's just not going to happen. You are getting better at sucking your thumb and I think it is the cutest thing in the world. I know that it might be a hard habit to break when you get older, but I just can't resist the cuteness. 
You are such a happy baby and you are so chatty! You love to talk and have the cutest little voice. You are always cooing and squealing whenever anyone looks at you. You are getting better with your car sear. Most of the time you sit there and play with your monkey and there have even been a few times that you have fallen asleep. *GASP* It makes the car rides a lot less stressful when we're not trapped with a screaming baby inside.

Ellie is still doing really well with you. She loves to bring you toys and any time you are fussy she will pick up a toy and shake it in front of you and say "Here. Here you go Michael." She is so sweet. She loves you so much and I can't wait to see you two play together and watch you grow into the best of friends!!

We are so blessed to have you as a part of our family and we love you so much. I am constantly amazed at how much I cherish and adore our children.
