Today I feel like I've reached the biggest milestone yet of motherhood. My little man is THREE months old! Everyone always said the first 12(ish) weeks are the toughest so the fact that we've made it past that mark makes me feel relieved almost. It has been hard... so hard! But also so incredibly rewarding and awesome. It's amazing to watch a tiny little human grow and learn new things- literally overnight at times. I don't plan on always doing monthly updates on T but I figured a 3-month check in was worthy of a blog post.
According to my unofficial weigh-in's at home he is around 13.5 pounds. He is getting so chunky and I love it. It makes me proud to know I can feed him and he's growing because of ME and what my body can provide! T is wearing mostly 3 month clothes, although sizes are SO weird, so he wears some 0-3 still too. If it's Carter's brand (and the majority of his clothes are!) the 3 month stuff fits perfectly right now.
As of last week T is SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT. I repeat, SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT. I'm talking 10-11 hour stretches. It's incredible. I've probably completely jinxed myself by typing that and telling the world, but right now it is glorious. He goes to bed around 7:30 and is down for the night. Praise the good Lord! Naps during the day still aren't consistent which can be frustrating, but I will happily take the night sleeping and be on my merry way for now :)
His hair is starting to come in more and more which I love. He's got a funny little patch of it in the back, and then some fuzzy stuff going all directions on top. His eyes are still super blue like momma's- and I'm hoping they stay that way. Our doctor commented on them and said even though it's still possible for them to change color, he doesn't see that happening with how incredibly blue T's are.
T is smiley 99% of the time, but I love his serious faces too. We are getting some sounds that are super close to actual laughs. He loves to coo and talk, I've captured some "conversations" on camera that are just the cutest ever. I'm that crazy mom that looks at all her pictures and videos of her kid once he goes to bed for the night. I'm exhausted and so ready for a 'break' and then I instantly miss him when he's sleeping.
I'm sure every stage with a child is so fun but I'm definitely loving the stage we're in now...getting into a groove, being able to predict his needs/moods more, watching him learn, etc. Even if I do look at his newborn pictures and want to cry just a little bit sometimes... Time truly goes SO fast!
Happy weekend everyone :)
