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!
