3 months old!

It's going by so fast! He's definitely chunked up from the 6lb baby I brought home from the hospital. He's so smiley and happy all the time, loves watching us and his big brother. He WAS sleeping really well until the last two nights, so I'm assuming they are aberrations and he'll go back to his 10 to 5 ways. He's still sleeping with us, but we're going to start transitioning him to the crib soon. He's awake for more and more of the day and wants to sit up and see everything that's going on around him. He's very close to being able to sit in the Bumbo chair without my worrying about his neck strength. (He can sit in it for 5 or 10 minutes at a time now.)
The Pirate finally seems to be settling in to being a brother and it's such a relief. (Do not ask how he was demonstrating his unhappiness and lack of control. It was not pretty.) This morning I got in the shower and the Bug was unhappy about it, but what are you gonna do? When I got out of the shower I found that the Pirate had woken up and got into bed with him and was snuggling him to calm him down. It was the first time the Pirate has ever gotten out of bed and not come looking for me first. It was amazingly sweet.
Life as a parent of two is good.


  1. Congratulations! I have been noticing so many babies lately - it has been a long time since ours were that small but I can remember it like it was yesterday. Gotta love those smiles.

  2. Awwwwwww, that is TOOOOOOO sweet! I hope DJ does the same thing!!!... Gotta love that whole 'big brother' thing. I am excited (and a bit worried, haha!) to see what he'll do. ^-^
    Laura H...
    And someone PLEASE tell this baby to hurry up and get here!!!!... HAHAHA!

  3. Awww, what a great smile! :)
    BTW, like the new look.

  4. He is s precious!! My husband all of a sudden has baby fever (his sister is due any day and my sister is just barely prego). I see pictures like this and think--YES!! But I'm just not ready yet. I still feel like there is so much I need to do before--did you feel like that?? I mean, really, am I going to run that marathon any time soon?? :) Just kidding as I'm not a runner--but would like to be.

  5. juliann- Babies ARE everywhere! It seems that everyone I know is having one now.

    Laura- soon! she'll be here soon.

    tanabata- thanks, I like the new look too.

    Trish- Babies change everything. If there's anything you HAVE to do- do it. Esp traveling. When they fly free they are too little to really travel and then when you have to buy a 25 lbs person their own plane seat it sucks. And forget driving all day. That said, I wouldn't trade them. :)

  6. OMG, what a cutie!!! Love the wide gummy grin. :)

  7. Thank you, I think he's adorable myself.
