Three Months

Dear Landon,

I cannot believe you are THREE months old already. Your three month birthday came with a week of activity, including my first day back at work, and your first day with Mrs. Liz. I think you are more well behaved for Mrs Liz, than you are for me! It has made my anxiety and fear about leaving you much better knowing that you are in such good hands and are such a good baby for her. This past month has flown by and you have changed so much in just a short amount of time.

-You now sleep anywhere from 5-8 hours straight at night. Usually, we aim to have you in bed between 8:30 and 9:30 and you will wake up around 3:30, eat, and go back to sleep until around 7.

-You eat between 4 and 7 ounces of milk at a time, about every 3 hours.

-You have started using the pacifier a lot more- which is okay by me!

-We still swaddle you at night, your startle reflex is still pretty bad, so you wake yourself up if you aren’t swaddled.

-You hate tummy time…it is something we really have to work at so you can gain that strength and raise your head.

-You giggle…which is hysterical, and makes us laugh.

-We can always get a smile out of you if we play “superman” and raise you above our heads. It is priceless.

-You have started grabbing at your toys that hang on your playmat and carseat…and then trying to bring them to your mouth.

-We think you are in the beginnings of teething…you drool like crazy, ALWAYS have your fists in your mouth, and during your 12th week were a little more fussy than usual. I won’t be surprised at all when we see a little tooth pop through!

-You are in 3-6 month clothing as of this week. They are a little big in the body, but fit you in length.

-We don’t go to the doctor this month, so we don’t know how much you weigh or how long you are. We will go for your four month appointment and shots in a few weeks and find out then.

-We went to the beach for the first time! But it was so cold and windy that we didn’t get to actually go ON the beach…we will go back this summer when we can get your sweet toesies in the water!

You are just pure joy in our lives and we love every minute we get to spend with you. Going back to work has been a challenge, but it makes my days off with you so precious and sweet. It breaks my heart that you are growing up so fast, but I am so excited to see you change each week and learn new things. I can’t wait to see the little boy you will be.

We love you sweet buddy!
