three months

dear declan,

you turned three months this past weekend.  how is this even possible?  you are growing so fast and it's so bittersweet because as much as i love watching you grow i can't help but want to freeze time and keep you my little baby forever.  i took you to a new pediatrician today and you weighed in right at 12 lbs. 7 oz.  you have almost doubled your birth weight.  you are turning into quite a chunky monkey and i love it.  you're still in a size one diaper, but not for long.  you're also just on the verge of busting out of all your 0-3 month outfits...those footed pjs are getting a little short for you.

we've still had our battle with your reflux this month.  mama had to take you to cook's childrens for a sonogram so they could get a really good look at what was going on.  you were so brave and the nurse said she had never had a baby your age do so well.  proud mama moment.  i really pray this time we have it figured out.  you are such a happy baby most of the time, but you sure know how to work a room with your pouty lip to get what you want.  your daddy is a sucker for it every time.  

we've made huge strides in the sleep department over the last week.  we figured out if we put your bouncy seat in the pack n' play you're
at the perfect angle for your reflex and it's right by our bed so you can see us.  sometimes i'll wake up to see you staring at me and then you smile so big.  melts my heart.  you're falling asleep around 9 pm and waking up at 4 or 5 am for a feeding then going back to sleep till 8 or 9 am.  keep it up little man...mama is loving her sleep.

you had lots of firsts this month.  first hotel stay, first wedding to attend and even first public diaper blow out.  i'm so excited to see all the strides you make this month and all our new adventures together. 

with all my love,

My son turns 3 months at the beginning of November, and I always love reading your posts because it's like I could have written them myself sometimes. I am amazed at how fast they grow! :-) Declan is a cutie!!
