3 Months... A Little Late!

You are 3 months old now. Well, you turned three months old last week actually! Mommy is a little behind. You are growing so fast! You are at least 14 lbs now (double your birth weight) and I think about 25 inches long!

This past month we had a great time! You went on your first road trips. First, we went to Cisco, TX to visit your Uncle Craig & Aunt Fallon and help them move. Then, the very next weekend, we traveled to Tulsa, OK to visit Uncle Robin & Aunt Jill and see Emma and meet cousin Foster for the very first time! You were a great traveler for both trips. You slept in the car pretty much the entire drive and never fussed at all. Our trip to Tulsa took quite a bit longer than normal but it wasn't because of anything that you could have helped, besides the diaper blowout all over mommy and the seat. You also had your first Thanksgiving. We spent Thanksgiving with Daddy's family at Mimi & Papa Bear's house. Aunt Tammy & Uncle Cameron were there with Noah, and Great Aunt Lesha and Uncle Chris came with Isabella. It was a fairly small group, but we had a great time eating, playing with you and Noah, and watching football.

Mommy had to go back to work at the end of this month. :-( This was very difficult on Mommy, but you have adjusted pretty quickly. You started daycare on the day that you turned 3 months old. Mommy misses you so much during the day but the daycare is good. Your teachers are Miss Angie & Miss Danielle. They do lots of fun things with you and you even finger-painted a snowflake last week!

You are learning more and more every day. You laughed out loud for the first time a few weeks ago while you were with Pops & Gigi. Pops said you really liked the song "Elvira." You talk and coo at us every day, but especially in the evenings right before bed. You have really discovered your hands this month and you love to explore them with your mouth. You are getting so good at grabbing at things. Your favorite thing to do right now is play in your activity gym, batting and grabbing at the toys hanging down in front of you. You also love watching football (seriously!) on TV. You will watch football for long periods of time.

You are on a really good routine now. You eat, then play, then nap in about 3 hour cycles. You have been sleeping great (most of the time). You usually go to bed between 8:30 and 10 and will often sleep straight through until about 2:30 or 3am, when you wake up for a quick snack and then go right back to sleep until about 7am. You are napping much more easily than you used to as well.

We are having so much fun being your Mommy & Daddy. Even though the transition to working full time has been a little hard on all of us, you just go with the flow and adapt to whatever situation we put you in. Our evenings and weekends with you are precious time!

We love you Little Man!!

With Love,

Mommy (Crystal)
