three months old

You are three months old today, and stealing a little bit more of my heart every second.

You’ve learned so many new things this month! You have mastered the back-to-tummy roll, you love showing the Sassy Go-Go Bugs who’s boss…

…and you are the king of thumb-sucking (which I’m sure will be a fun habit to break).

You finally wiggled your way into 3-month clothes, and currently weigh in at 12lbs. 3oz. You are just shy of 24 inches long, and are holding your own in the 50th percentile. You were not a big fan of your first round of shots, and I don’t blame you! You were screaming and I was trying so hard not to cry; we looked like a couple of wimps! We need to work on our tough-guy faces for next time.
You are losing your baby hair in awkward patches. In fact, you sort of look like an old homeless man from the back. Don’t worry! You’ll be rockin’ that faux-hawk again in no time.
You have a new best friend, and his name is Snuggle Bunny (well, until Dad comes up with a “manlier” name for it).

For the first time in weeks, you will tolerate sleeping alone as long as you can hug your lovey. Sometimes you even put yourself to sleep! Co-sleeping is making me nervous now that you’re a roly-poly, so I’m hoping your new Bunny friend continues to work his magic.

We went on vacation earlier this month, which means you experienced a big first– your first plane ride! You were a pro, not scared one bit (while your Uncle Max screamed from a few rows back).

We visited your great-grandparents in Florida, and spent the whole week relaxing together. We took you on your first trip to the beach (not a fan) and the zoo (didn’t care).

Hoping that we can make this vacation a family tradition!
This month also marks the beginning of a pretty tough year! Momma is student teaching this semester and next, which means you’ll be spending lots of quality time with Gigi. We’re pretty lucky to have her around =] Just do me a favor and save all the big stuff for me, okay? I’m really hating the idea of potentially missing out on your “firsts” while I’m at school.

I can’t wait to see what the next month will bring! You’re growing up so fast. Love you to pieces, kid, and don’t you forget it ❤
