3 months

We are so late with posting this. Jack is almost 4 months old!

Weight: 15.5 lbs
Height: 25.5 inches

Sleep: You are sleeping pretty well during the night. We put you to bed around 8pm and feed you at 11pm before we go to bed. You wake up around 3:30am for another feeding and normally go back down until 6:00am when it's time to start our day!

Eat: You still are exclusively on breast milk and when you are at daycare are drinking 4oz bottles.

Diapers: You're still very gassy boy :) Your mom and I joke that you fart like a forty year old man. You have started having poops every other day which is great but scared us at first that something was wrong. Because of this though you are having a lot more diaper blow outs which are always fun :)

- You still LOVE being bounced on the exercise ball when you are fussy or tired. You snuggle your face into the crook of our arm while we bounce and you suck on your paci.

- You can't get enough of the mobile above your crib. You love the movement and the lights that dance above your head. You kick your legs, smile and talk every time we turn it on.

- You are definitely a water boy. One of your favorite times of day is bath time with your mom or me. You kick you legs and splash around.

- You still aren't a fan of napping in the daytime in your crib, you prefer the swing.

- You went to your first movie with Mama, Mom and Aunt Carly. We saw Kick Ass, a very appropriate first movie :) You behaved very well and even watched some of it but mostly slept through the action.

- You started daycare this month. I know it was harder on us than it was on you.

- You're baby talking to us which we love and always makes us laugh.

- You can stand when we hold you up on our laps. You seemed pretty in awe in the beginning that you could do such a thing.

- You've started giggling, although right now they are very few and far between so it is very special for the person who gets to hear it.

- You've gotten your first cold (doctor's says it's an upper respiratory infection), you're all stuffed up, sneezy and coughing but you are still in good spirits.

- You've started to notice and play with toys around you. Batting them with your little hands and grabbing on to them not wanting to let go.

Notes & Accomplishments:
- You are starting to get better about riding in the car and being in the car seat. We have gone on whole car rides without a single tear.

- You are becoming a lot more alert, tracking objects with your eyes.

- You are getting stronger and stronger, holding up your head when we sit you up or lay you on your tummy.

- You're latest discovery is your hands, you will do anything to put them in your mouth, even if that means busting out of your swaddle in a Houdini like manner.

- You still have a very mercurial personality (you have since birth) you can be smiling one second and in tears and screaming in the blink of an eye.

- When you hold your hand in a fist you always tuck your thumb under your second finger.
