3 months!

Yesterday Jack turned 3 months!  I cannot believe he is already so old!

I am not sure how much he weighs now.  Last time he was weighed was at 9 weeks (and now he's 13 weeks old).  He weighed 14 lbs 7 oz, so there is no telling how much our little chunk weighs now!  We have a doctors appointment next week, so I am excited to hear his weight.

He eats every 3 hours, except for at night.  And because of daycare, I actually know how much he eats--about 4 1/2 oz each time.  He takes a bottle really well.  At night, he eats at 7, is in bed by 8, has a dream feed about 10:45, and usually doesn't eat again until 7 a.m.!  The past few nights he has woken up fussing a few times during the night, but calms back down really quickly.

He is in size 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.  

This week, he started laughing, and we LOVE it.  He has been talking and cooing for a couple of weeks now.

 He has even started to roll over!  He usually only can go halfway and then he gets stuck.  He has figured out how to use his hands.  He loves to suck on his fingers and to play with the toys on his play mat.

He still is such a sweet and easy baby.  There are days that go by where I hear him cry maybe once (and usually only cause he woke up from a nap!).  I am so thankful that he is such a good baby--it makes my crazy schedule a little easier.  Of course, I do know this means I am probably due for a colic-y baby next time around! (I was a second child and had colic!)

Likes: Playmat, baths, being tickled, talking

Dislikes:  not much...maybe when he breaks out his swaddle in the middle of the night!

And so you can see how much he has changed:

(I remember when we thought he was a chunk at 1 month...boy, were we wrong!)

We love our little 3 month old!
