3 Months Old!

Such a Happy Little Guy!

I know I say this all the time, but I seriously cannot believe Garrett is over 3 months old already! Time is going so fast and he is getting SO big!!  He’s still the coolest person in the whole world and I am so proud of all he’s able to do already! The beginning of our month was pretty busy with traveling and everything, but thankfully everything slowed down quite a bit and we were able to get some time at home for the majority of it. A few weeks ago we started the dreaded 3 month growth spurt, and it lasted for about a week and a half. It was a tough one, especially because Garrett all of a sudden started refusing a bottle so it felt like he was permanently attached to me, but I did some research and tried a new bottle and nipple, and it’s starting to get better as long as the bottle is as warm as it can be without burning him and I am nowhere near him when he takes the bottle. Smart little cookie : ) So, we made it through and hopefully we won’t have to deal with another big one until he’s about 6 months. However, I’m sure he’ll start teething somewhere in between now and then but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, for now I’m just going to go back to enjoying my easy baby and my 6-8 hour stretch of sleep!

It seems like since he went through his little growth spurt he is all of a sudden able to do so much more!  He rolled over for the first time last week and did it several times in one day, but now doesn’t really care to try anymore and gets frustrated, this is what he looks like just before he’s had it : ) but we’re going to keep on tryig and hopefully will get it on video soon : )

Here’s a happier one of him showing off how strong he’s getting.

Here’s what’s going on this month : )
  • Holding our head up for longer periods every day
  • Falling more consistently into a daily schedule
  • Rolling over from tummy to back (when he feels like it)
  • Loves seeing the world from his Baby Bjorn!
  • Smiles ALL the time
  • Loves to talk to anyone who will listen
  • Laughs when you make funny noises
  • Is ticklish on his belly, feet and under his arms (his giggles will make sure you know that : )
  • Sleeping roughly 7 hours in a row per night then eats and sleeps for another few hours
  • Takes one short nap in the a.m….one long afternoon nap, and another short one in the p.m.
  • Grasps things with his hands
  • Looks like he is constantly trying to figure everything out (Dan’s child for sure : )
  • Wearing mostly 6 month clothes, but can still wear a few 3 month onesies
And LOVES to play in his new jumperoo!!
So….he’s going on 15 weeks now, and we’ve been super busy so my post is again…late : )  He’s learning and growing more and more each day and it’s so neat to watch him!!! 
I definitely think it’s safe to say that Mommyhood suits me well….
…and I’ve never been happier : )
