Holy 3 months!

I think the 4th trimester is finally over. The days of little sleep, few showers and maternity leave are a thing of the past. This past Saturday, our little man turned 3 months. Really! 3 freaking months.

I’m tip toeing back from his room since checking on him because… yup, he is sleeping in his crib! We made the move almost 2 weeks ago and he has been sleeping through the night ever since. I have to give the SwaddleMe (cough cough… strait jacket) major props for making this transition possible. He sleeps from about 10pm-7am and will take another nap around 9am.

So here is a little summary on the little guy…

He is a baby of many names. More names than our dog…

CC, Chuck, Christopher, Charlie Choo, Trey, Little Man, Stinky, Boogs… I can keep going. I have a feeling he is going to grow up and have no clue what his real name is considering we still cant seem to settle on ‘one’ real name to call him.

He’s wearing size 1 diapers, drinking soy formula (yup I am a breast feeding drop-out) and sporting 0-3 month clothing.

His thighs have gained at least 3 more rolls and he has fat little wrists, he is my chunky boy and it’s hard to believe that 3 months ago he weighed 5lbs. Really? His last appointment he weighed 11.14lbs but that was over 3.5 weeks ago.

My favorite time of the day is when we starts moaning and groaning on the monitor and when I go to get him, he gives me the biggest smile then he wraps his arms around you when you pick him up. Pure love. I am still trying to figure out where he adopted this “morning person” thing because it definitely didn’t come from me or his father.

We are starting to pick up on his little personality, it’s pretty fun to recognize his little things. He smiles more, laughs at us, grabs for things and I’m pretty convinced he recognizes us. Time is flying and even though I didn’t want him to grow so fast, every little new thing he does makes me even more excited for what is to come next.

Happy Three Months! He is just adorable!
It goes by way too fast.
PS: Don't worry about being a breast feeding drop out. I was too. At about the same time.

All wonderful news!! I love getting updates on CC. It sounds like the 3 month mark is a enjoyable time. And, what a super sleeper he is! I can only HOPE Taylor likes to sleep all night too.

Hes adorable and I see so much of his Daddy in him.

I can't wait to see him again at my shower. You ARE coming, right? RSVP ASAP, girl! :) greenfamily.net/babyrsvp

Happy 3 months & wow am I jealous that he is sleeping so well so early....our 1st had colic so I will pray that we will have better luck with our bun in the oven :)

Awe, this post made me laugh and smile all at the same time! You are such a beautiful writer Ashley!

They sure do tell you that time does fly. I cannot believe miss Sadie will be (cries) SIX MONTHS in about a week in 2 days. Half a year old. Ah!

Yet, I was sad to see the little period go on by, I am so happy now, watching her develop her personality, watch her grin from ear to ear at her mommy and laugh every now and then.

And, you, did the right thing, by that SWADDLEME thing! I never stuck with it after hospital, nor did I have the Swaddleme things, and I went out to get them TOO late and Sadie was NOT having it. She was like WTH is this thing? On the other hand, my nephew was in them from day 1 and my sister and her husband SWORE by them. He slept through the night VERY early on as well. I am jealous! haha.

Sadie is almost 6 months, and has still yet to sleep through the night, she did it twice, (not in a row) so I know its capable. But She is still being breastfed, but that shouldn't make a difference. I have to ask her doctor about that! Anyways, beautiful post as always, and a VERY happy 3 months to baby CC (etc with his names!) :)

I love your blog! I have no idea how you have time to keep it up so well. My granddaughter has that same giraffe that little CC is playing with....she LOVES it, too.! Happy 3 months!

Mama Bird said...

I love the bath pic - he is such a cutie! And congrats on sleeping through the night. The swaddle saved us, too!

Jilean said...

Lori said...

Gosh, Asheley...he is sooo darned cute! I have several of those outfits for Luke too! Can you believe how fast the time has gone??? Hoping that when we hit that 3 months (a little over 2 more weeks!) it's as easy a transition from the 4th trimester as your CC's has been!!!

Happy 3 months! Seriously, that swaddle thing is like the best piece of baby equipment ever.

Amanda said...

I love the SwaddleMe! My little chickie won't sleep on her own without it. I do feel bad about sometimes, it's so tight! But then I sleep for 5 hours and I am a happy mommy.

And thank you for admitting you're a breastfeeding drop-out. I am considering it myself right now and I swear, there should be more support for drop-outs than breastfeeding. I feel so bad! But BF is not all it's cracked up to be!
