Time, precious time

Hi ladies! 
Seriously - where is the time flying these days? Another blink of an eye and my baby boy is now 3 months old! We are doing great these days, he is cooing more each day and talks up a storm and last week even started to laugh! Well, I consider it a laugh but it kinda sounds like a baby terradactal. 

Our days are spent eating, burping, playing, tummy time and napping. He's been a real champion sleeper (knock on wood) - in the last few weeks he's been going to sleep 11pm (our last feed starts around 10/10:30) and then he will wake anywhere from 7-9 am - and the last few days have been closer to 9 am and it's been AMAZING - I get to brush my teeth, do my business, eat some breakfast and drink some tea before he starts stirring.  I'm just bracing for him to start waking up early again as his next shot is next Monday..here's hoping it won't affect him too much this time!

Napping during the day has been a challenge - this boy will not nap for more than 30 mins - unless we go out to the mall or when we're out - he can sleep for 2 hours in the stroller! Which makes my 'free time' in between feeds at home a bit strained. Most of the time I will have to hold him during the naps and then put him down - I am so scared even to sneeze and wake him up! 

The other day we were at my parent's house for dinner and we had him in the car seat next to us and while there was a lull in conversation, we all heard him say 'mommee'! He never said it again but I think I'll count that as his first word - even though he didn't know what he was saying I'd like to think that Mommy was it! 

I'm so glad that our lil' man loves to socialize.  He isn't clingy (yet) and loves attention and doesn't seem to mind being passed from person to person when we've been out at baby showers, dinners and get togethers.  Every day I still look at him and say a word of thanks for this beautiful blessing.  I can't wait to see what milestones the next month will unfold - he is growing up way too fast and I'm getting sad that he won't be my teeny tiny baby much longer! 


  1. Good to hear from you. Glad all is happy and well. Your baby boy is just picture perfect!!

  2. He is so cute with all that hair!! I know you are a proud mama!! We have that little ducky outfit too and I can't wait to see it on our little boy! So glad yall are doing great!!

  3. He is too cute! I hear ya on the lack of good daytime naps! Addy stopped napping well around 3 months & I get a good week here & there but that's it. Sadly, after Christmas now she wakes up between 5-6am. Boy do I miss those later mornings! As long as your little man is sleeping through you are golden!

    It really is incredible how very fast the time flies. Everyone says it when you're pregnant but you don't really understand until you experience it. Glad you are doing well & so nice to hear from you.

  4. What a beautiful baby boy he is!!! I love all his hair. Thanks for the update - it is good to hear from you!

  5. Very cute pictures. E has the same onesie. So cute. :)

    Have you thought about letting him sleep in the stroller in your house? Or maybe putting on some white noise so he doesn't wake up so easily? Whatever works!! :)

  6. So stinkin' cute! I love his little mohawk (Ella hardly has any hair).

    What a blessing that he's sleeping so well! I hope it keeps up (because it's not happening for us). Hang in there!

  7. He is just too stinkin cute!!!!!!
    And I hear you with the napping. Thirty minutes tops for Kailyn since she was 1-2 months old. And if we go to the store she won't take one at all because my little girl is too nosey! lol
    She is a good sleeper at night, though, so I don't complain too much. I have a few friends who don't have good night sleepers so I am grateful for what we get.
    Keep up the good work Mommy!

  8. It's so great to hear from you and know you guys are doing great.

    I know this is technically -not allowed- but I started putting a blanket on W while he was napping. It took him from a 30 minute nap to over an hour. I kept the video monitor on him and checked on him all the time. And it was wonderful.

  9. I love his baby mohawk! What a sweetie! Glad everything is going so well. You sound like you're just loving this mama business.

  10. Wow, three months has really flown by! He's positively adorable. I'm glad he's taking it easy on you (at night at least!). It sounds like you're loving motherhood!
