Jacob: 3 Months

3 months

Where has the time gone?! My baby boy, officially no longer a newborn! Here's a look at what month 3 has looked like...

Nicknames: Still gets buddy, baby boy, and sweet pea a lot so I think those are here to stay. I refer to him as nugget quite a bit, but don't think I actually call him that much when talking to him. I'm trying to make more of an effort to use his name so he gets used to hearing it.

Weight/Height: No doctors appointment this month, but we tried to measure both at home and think he's almost 16 pounds 13 ounces and somewhere near 25 inches. Pretty sure we're holding strong in the 90-95th percentiles for both. He's a big boy!

Things we can't live without: Pacifiers and white noise is still way up there on our list of favorite things. We've swaddled him when it's time to sleep this month and that's made a big difference in how well he sleeps too I think. 

Things he likes: To be held, this baby Einstein sea turtle he has that plays music, a mobile my mom got him for his crib (it always sounds like he talks to it!), to sit in your lap facing out. 

Things he dislikes: The drive home from daycare...almost every day it involves some crying. I think it's just because he's usually pretty tired at that point in the day. 

Favorite characteristics: The smiles! Those have been such a more common occurrence this month and I feel like we've got to be so close to getting a laugh out of him too! He's also a snuggler, especially when he's still a little bit sleepy after the morning nursing session before he starts his day. My lateness to work a few times can be fully blamed on my refusal to end that cuddling time. :)

Milestones: Adding this category this month! Baby boy now consistently sleeps through the night, going to bed no later than 7:30pm and waking up anywhere between 5 and 7am, although thankfully the 5am wake up is pretty rare. He's also rolled himself from his back to his side a few times...can't wait to see him do this even more!
