3 months old
You are now 3 months old and we can't imagine life without you. You are filling out and getting more chub on your arms and legs. You wear size 2 diapers and have moved into 3 - 6 month clothes.
You are now falling asleep on your own in your bed for the most part. I think part of that is the decrease in gas problems. Although having a cold this past week threw that off a bit. You got really chapped cheeks and had a bit of wheezing. :( You have been really happy though except when the gunk from your nose drained to your belly and that caused problems. It is hard to keep you healthy when all of your siblings have a runny nose and a cough. I try to quarantine you but that is near impossible!
Daylight savings time in early November somehow had an effect on you and you were back to waking around 3 a.m. to nurse but gradually went an hour longer each night and are now waking between 6 - 7 a.m. going to bed around 10 p.m. You are taking more consistent naps too and I expect that will improve as the time between feedings increases. Right now you like to eat every 3-4 hours.
You have found your hands and are sucking on them more and more and grabbing at toys on your bouncy seat too. Occasionally you will get your thumb so we're still waiting to see if you become a thumb-sucker like Tank and Seppy.
We love all of your smiles and finding your tickle spots to make you giggle. Your brothers and sisters are having more fun with you although they keep asking when you are going to crawl. I think they want you to keep up with them but I really want you to take your time. :)
