Matthew William ~ 3 Months

This month has had lots of changes for Matt! It's been a busy month so I've missed a few weeks of posts.

 We bought our first home and moved in - Matt is loving life in Marin.

Weight/length: At Matt's 2 month appointment a month ago he was 15 pounds 12 oz and 25.5 inches long - he's definitely gained at least a pound if not more and gotten longer.

Sleep: On July 24, 2014 he slept from 10pm until 5am! This was a little unusual he usually wakes up at 3am to eat and then falls back asleep. He's been going down to bed much easier which is nice - usually we rock him in our arms for a little after his bath routine and then put him down in his bassinet.

Health: Still very very healthy and strong! He had a little red eye when we moved into the new house - probably from dust and change of environment. He has learned how to cough over the past month which is cute, but worries me sometimes.

Clothes: He's definitely in 6 month clothing and some 9 month shorts and pants. His 3 month outfits barely fit over his head and things are getting shorter and tight around his belly. Even his socks are tight on his chubby ankles :)

Diet: Still breastfeeding very well, however, he's getting more aware of his surroundings so he tends to get distracted more easily. I noticed this at a wedding we were at a few weeks ago. He was having a difficult time eating when there was a lot of noise in the background.
Jeff and Melissa's wedding in Tahoe! Matt got to spend time with all of his favorite little girls, Ave, Emma, and Mila!

Baby Gear/Accessories: He's sleeping comfortably in the bassinet - finally. It was right around 2 months when we decided he really needed to get used to sleeping in the bassinet so that the crib transition would be easier. Now that he's comfy in the bassinet I really like it - made by Babyhome.

Development: Lots of changes have taken place in the last month. He's been drooling and putting his hands in his mouth, playing with his hands, and holding on to things. His neck is much stronger and he's lifting his head up when he's on his belly.
He's started to make different noises - almost like talking...it's fun to talk to him and get something back.

Crying: His crying is about the same. Usually when he's over tired and hungry.

Adventures: Matt had a his first trip to Tahoe where we celebrated Jeff and Melissa's wedding. We moved into our new house and he met his Uncle Glenny and Aunt Sara! Nonnie and Papa helped us move into the new house, so we had lots of time with them.

Celebrating Nonnie's Birthday in San Rafael!

  What Mommy's Learning: 
  • Moving with a baby is HARD! I've had to be really patient and not get stressed about the house not being perfect - it's harder to get things done with a 3 month old.
  •  Start getting ready for trips and weekend adventures early - it takes much longer to pack and get things ready with a baby.
  • The first 3 months fly by - I wish I could slow it all down. I don't regret any of the hundreds of pictures and videos I have taken.
Likes: He still likes lots of bouncing! He likes it when we make funny faces and tickle his nose and belly button. He laughs and smiles in the morning when I change his diaper and sing the ABCs. He loves it when his Daddy comes home and gives him kisses and holds him up high.

Postpartum/Mommy feeling: I'm looking forward to going to San Diego this weekend for Katie's wedding - should be fun! The summer is flying by and sometimes I wish I could just push pause on everything. I can't believe how quickly these past 3 months have gone by, I can only imagine the next 18 years. 
Lots of changes have happened in the past few months for me and I wouldn't have it any other way ~ I read this today and it's exactly how I feel :)
