Happy 3 Month Birthday!

IMG_0570wmConnor, you're 3 months old today!
I can't believe how fast time has flown, and yet when I look at you, you are still so little to me. Perhaps it's because you have a big brother and so you'll always seem like my baby. So what are you up to these days?
  • The biggest thing is that you FINALLY started sleeping through the night when you turned 12 weeks old last week. You eat your dreamfeed at 10:30, and don't wake up until 7:30 (today I had to WAKE you up at 8:15!). I am SO grateful for that uninterrupted 9 hours of sleep you are giving me and daddy, and so thankful for Babywise!
  • Naps are still hit and miss for us. You take at least 3 naps a day, but are in the thick of the '45 minute intruder', so sometimes you get 3 short naps :( Thankfully I know that if we keep on pressing on, eventually we'll get out of this phase. At least that's what I hope, haha!
  • You are seriously one of the happiest babies I've ever been around. Every time you see me you light up with the biggest gummiest grin I have ever seen, and even kind of squeal. It makes my heart melt and I LOVE it!
  • You are a BIG boy! You weighed 14 pounds 2 weeks ago, so I am sure you are getting close to 15 pounds now. 
  • You wear almost all 3-6 month clothes.
  • You wear a size 3 diaper at night and a size 2 diaper during the day.
  • You eat 7 times during the day: every 3 hours (we still cluster feed you at night), and a dreamfeed from daddy at 10:30. When we feed you a bottle you'll eat about 4 ounces during the day, and your dreamfeed bottle is about 5-6 ounces. You're still a 100% breastmilk baby, and we're hoping it stays that way for a bit longer :)
  • You still have reflux, but I can tell it's getting better. Thank goodness for Zantac!
  • Your hair is still as awesome as ever. I often get comments from people asking me how I style it... haha! No styling except for what God put in it!
  • You LOVE your bath and would just lay in there for ever if I let you! 
  • You are starting to roll from your back to your side, so I am thinking that rolling onto your tummy is not too far into our future. Oh boy!
  • You can sit in your bumbo for quite a while now, and are still love the swing!
  • When you sit in your bouncy chair, something inside of you wakes up and you literally kick it like nobody's business. It's so funny to watch you kick your little legs and flail your arms... I love how excited you get!
"thumbs down to ANOTHER photo shoot mom!"
just a teeny wheeny view of his little pouty lip. He knows how to stick it straight out when he's not getting his way (or when he's upset about something! haha!)
believe it or not, the only thing I edited on this picture was white balance and a bit of contrast, and then added a vignette. His eyes are THAT blue! I {LOVE} them!
Your daddy and I love you so much little mister! Thank you for bringing so much joy and tons of smiles into our home... happy 3 month birthday!
