Little dude is 3 months old as of 9 days ago. I’m a little late with this post. It came upon me so quickly I didn’t even have time to publish this post but I did snap a pic on the right day! Stop growing kid!
Height/Weight: I don’t have an actual measurement or weight. I will be taking him to the doctor next month and will get that. Our scale is out of batteries sooooo couldn’t weigh him myself. He is probably 15 pounds I’d say and mega long. haha
Routine: Morning and evenings we have a great routine down. Day time hours around here are kind of what I call a “chaotic routine.” I have help on certain days of the week at certain times and then my workload is heavier on some days than others so really every day is a little bit unpredictable. I wouldn’t say there is no routine but we kind of have to just go with the flow to keep everyone happy. Boden still sleeps quite a bit so he takes a really solid morning and afternoon nap and then the rest are kind of little cat naps here and there. His eating is more scheduled now and so really I can’t complain too much. I mean I have 4 kids….what’s not gonna be crazy!
Sleeping: You guys!!!! My little man is totally sleeping through the night. I AM SHOCKED!! Like fall down on the floor in hysterical happy giggles shocked. I’ve never had a kid sleep through the night at this age. EVER!! He is ready for bed by 6 every night, and even here lately has almost wanted to be down at 5, but I try to keep him up. Then he is out until about 5-5:30 in the morning. This is super early but honestly I feel so good for getting some solid sleep I don’t care how early it is. Plus, it gives me and him some one on one time before all the noisy humans wake up and I can get lots of stuff done in the wee hours of the morning. Soooo it’s a win win.
Eating/Feeding: He is eating about 5 oz every 3 hours or so. I think he will be moving to 6 really soon as he is a growing boy and we all know how boys like to eat. With him sleeping through the night he definitely eats more in the morning to replenish his energy stock. We will start some cereal next month so that’s always an adventure.
Sizes: He is definitely in 3-6 month clothes but due to his height he can wear 9 month sleepers. Most of the 3-6 month sleepers I have are becoming too small lengthwise. I don’t know where these Amazon children come from. I’m not in any way tall…like what the heck?! As for diapers, he is in a size 2 but will be moving to 3 shortly. He still isn’t terribly chunky just super long.
Milestones: He smiles ALL THE TIME – especially when he sees me which literally melts my heart. I’m telling ya this is the only time in my kids’ life they prefer me over dad so I soak up every single second of it. Here soon he will betray me and cling on to his father like he is King of the Universe. Traitors! He is also reaching for things, a little bit, and is rocking back and forth during tummy time but not trying to roll over just yet. Talking and chattering in the form of goos and gaas are his favorite way to communicate as is screaming his head off.
Favorite Toys: He still loves his playmat but he has also developed an affection for watching videos I take of him and his brothers. He pretty much thinks that’s the coolest thing. Already addicted to the iPhone. Geez!
Favorite Moment: Honestly, as I mentioned above, that alone time in the mornings is becoming my favorite. He is soooo happy and smiley and is the sweetest. He does not like to be put down during the day so can often be agitated – but in the morning he is all smiles. I’m loving it!
