On Wednesday September 14th Baby C turned 3 months old.
Ya’ll it’s all going by so fast!!
He’s already wearing size 6 months clothes! Is this normal? I remember Brother I being in newborn clothes forever, then 3 months forever, then 6 months FOREVER.
Baby C on the other hand is jumping sizes faster than I can keep up!
He’s in size 2 diapers and recently has gone from sleeping 5 hours at night to 7.5 hours! I’m so grateful for a longer stretch of sleep even if I do have to pump to be comfortable.
Baby C is such a happy baby! This past month he’s really blossomed with his smiles, coos, squeals, and “talking”. I absolutely love mornings with him. As I sit and drink my coffee, Baby C and I catch up and he’s ALL smiles. #meltmyheart #mommasboy
Baby C is also on a really good routine and I find it predictable which is awesome! He’s always been very obvious when he’s tired because his eyelids and area around his eyebrows get red, but now knowing his general nap times is awesome and allows for easier out of the house adventures.
Another knew development is that Baby C has put himself to sleep many times this past month. It first started in the car – I think the movement and noise lulled him to sleep. Sometimes he still cried and needed his pacifier, but for the most part falling asleep in the car is super easy for him to do now! He’s also fallen asleep by himself in his bed (in my room) after a middle of the night feeding. Occasionally I have to lean over and pat his back (he still sleeps on his tummy) but he eventually drifts off to sleep.
Speaking of tummy, Baby C sleeps really well this way but he’s not a fan of tummy tie anymore or playing on his back. I don’t know if this is because of his reflux or if it’s because he just enjoys standing up and looking at mommy, daddy, and brother. Either way he hasn’t done much rolling over from tummy to back recently. And he’s really strong and loves to stand on his legs as we hold him. Maybe he’ll be an early walker like his big brother!
Right now at 3 months Baby C weighed 15lbs 5oz and measured 23.5 inches long. He’s getting so big and has thighs for dayzzzz!
He’s wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.
