How in the world is my baby already 3 months?? I can’t believe how fast it’s going. Slow down little man. Month 3 has been a bit challenging since the boys have been back to school and we have been busy with work. However, ever since Gavin has turned the big 3 (months) he has been so happy and easy going…for the most part. Yay for small victories. Some days it’s nearly impossible to put him down and others he does great but we will take what we can get. He is still a little mover who wants to just get up and go. I’m pretty sure we are going to have an early crawler on our hands…..which is good because I think he will be even more happy when he can zoom and get into trouble. Ha 🙂 Anyways, here are some of his stats for month tres and at the end I have a Vlog post for month 3!!
Height/Weight: 18.6 pounds and 25 inches tall
Routine: I posted a daily routine post the other day which gives more specifics on how things roll around here. For the most part we are finally on a pretty good routine. Afternoons can still sometimes vary since he will be cat napping all day or take a really long nap. So we just play it by ear. Otherwise our morning and evening routine are definitely down pat which is awesome!
Sleeping: He is finally steadily sleeping through the night. YAY!!! We have a few nights that he will wake up but for the most part he goes about 5 days in a row. He has been doing this for about 2 weeks so I am loving the sleep. I feel like a whole new woman!!
Eating/Feeding: He is now eating 6 oz every 2 hours. Every once in a while I can push him to 3 but he still isn’t having it. I feel like he is eating way too much but he is healthy so I just follow his lead. He is still spitting up constantly so I try to really watch his feedings but hopefully when we start cereal in a month it will get better.
Sizes: The kid is already in 6 month clothes. Most of his 3 month stuff is way too little. I am running out of summer clothes since I had mostly warmer weather outfits in the 6 month sizes. Who knew I’d have a giant. 🙂 He spits up so much during the day we end up going through about 3-4 outfits a day so I feel like I’m doing laundry 24/7. He is in size 2 diapers but I expect those will only last another month or so before we have to graduate to the big 3’s.
Milestones: He is laughing a lot more. I took the older two to the dentist the other day and while we were discussing Logan’s cavity Gavin just busted out laughing for a solid 2 minutes. He must have thought the talk of putting Logan on laughing gas was hilarious. It was so hard for me to concentrate on what the dentist was saying because it was by far the cutest little thing EVER. He is also doing really well with tummy time and is getting stronger every day. He continues to grasp onto things and is starting to slowly understand how to use those hands of his. He is teething and has some bottom teeth slightly poking through. I don’t expect them to really shoot up for another couple of months but he is drooling and chewing like a mad man.
Favorite Toys: He still likes his playmate but will enjoy it more when he can roll over….he gets tired of just flailing on his back all the time. He also is in love with his crib music mobile. I got these for all three of my kids and they were lifesavers. His favorite toy and little friend is Sophie the Giraffe. It’s a teething toy but he LOVES her. His little face just lights up every time I give her to him and he immediately goes to town chewing on her ears and face. Haha she is a great friend.
Favorite Moment: Laughing at the dentist was pretty awesome but my favorite moments are watching him with Jared. Every time he picks him up Gavin just starts talking like crazy. He laughs and smiles and just has soooo much to say to his daddy. It melts my little heart every time. I’m pretty sure I have another future daddy’s boy…for the 3rd time. Oh well it’s bound to happen.
