Three Months and Growing!

Baby Nick turned three months on Tuesday and I am a little late on posting but better late than never!

He is getting bigger and stronger everyday. He has rolled over three times from his belly to his back and absolutely loves tummy time. He smiles and giggles and even laughs! He enjoys being talked to and being held. My big baby is wearing anywhere from 3 to 9 month clothing and not slowing down on growing anytime soon. I should have great arms by the time he is one. 


He is finally sleeping through the night but is still sleeping at our bedside. We haven't made the transition to his crib yet since we don't want to wake Marlee in the process and since they are roommates, I do not see the move happening anytime soon. Never wake a sleeping princess!


Marlee and Nicky (as she has started to call him) are the best of friends so far. As soon as Marlee wakes up, she asks 'Where's baby?'. He is starting to become more focused on her and everything she does. He will lay on his back and his eyes are going all over the room watching what she does. She continues to be gentle and give him his daily pet on the head. I love that we had them so close and they will grow up together.


We are done breast feeding which is a little bittersweet. It is a little earlier than I had hoped but it was definitely more difficult this time around. With a toddler running around, working in a busy ER, and constantly having family close, it became less of a priority and more of a hassle. He has been drinking formula great though and he has even occasionally spaced out feeding to every 3 hours instead of 2. 


If I am lucky, I can get him to nap a couple times a day. He is still a belly sleeper with his white noise machine. Big Nick and I have learned to mute out the noise as we sleep. 


Our sweet boy unfortunately is a big spitter-upper. So after having him in his nice picture clothes, he spit up all over them. And then peed through his next outfit, so I gave up and just put him in PJ's. Comfy and cute! 
Seriously though, does the laundry ever end?!


Three months!! Where does the time go?
