3 months

Owen -

Today, you are 3 months old!! How is this possible?! These past 3 months have flown by!

Little tidbits about your last month-

Your sleeping habits have gotten better & better! I can't believe how much your sleeping has changed! You go to sleep around 8-9pm, then are up around 10 for a bottle, & you go right back to sleep. You usually stay asleep until 3-6am (it's hit or miss), up for a bottle (& you are only up for about 15 minutes total), then right back to sleep. You wake up around 7:30-8:00 for the day. You are still sleeping on your belly & you love it. Lately, you don't want to be rocked to sleep (which momma misses). We will put you in your cradle or crib, pat your butt, & you go to sleep on your own. Yesterday, I did rock you though, which I loved! Your naps are all over the place. Sometimes you sleep for 2 hours, sometimes 30 minutes. You just like to see what's going on & don't want to miss anything! We are going to have to start transitioning you to crib sometime soon though, as you are outgrowing the cradle. Momma doesn't want to do it though - I love having you right beside me at night. You sometimes take naps in the crib, but nothing consistent yet. I'm sure by the next monthly post you'll be in your crib full-time.

Momma went back to work & it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Thankfully, maw-maw is watching you & she sends me pictures throughout the day. I miss you so much while I'm gone though. Momma cried multiple times when I had to leave to go to work. I wish we would win the lottery so I could stay home with you!

You are starting to grab at toys & love to lay down on a blanket in the living room & play. You have officially found your hands & they are constantly in your mouth. I'm not sure if you're teething just yet, but if you aren't, I'm sure it won't be long. And the drool! Oh, the drool! It's everywhere, which means you are wearing bibs more & more. You also like to blow bubbles. You love to be talked & sang to. You still aren't a fan of tummy time but you have amazing head control.

You love bath time & are still getting baths in the kitchen sink. Me & daddy were talking Tuesday night that we think we need to move you to your baby bath though. You like to kick in the sink & it's getting messier & messier. We love it!

You are in mostly 3-6 month clothing, with very few 0-3 month outfits fitting. I even bought a 6 month onesie the other day & after washing it, I think you will only get 1 wear out of it. It's crazy how big you are getting! I adore all your little rolls & chubby cheeks. I could nom on those cheeks all day long, mister! You are in size 1 diapers, but after this box, we are moving to size 2. You take 5 oz of formula every 3 hours, except at night, of course. You love to eat & act like every bottle is your last. You throw a fit if we don't make the bottle fast enough! ha!

Weight: 16.8 pounds
Height: 25.75 inches

Owen, I can't believe that just 3 months ago, you weren't here with us. I can't imagine my life without you in it. We love you so much, bubs!

This is such a cute post. My little peanut likes to sleep on her tummy too and is slobbering like a man woman! So funny how fast things change even over night. :)
