Colin: Three Months!

Dear Colin,

You are getting so big. It seems like every day you are doing something new, and I am so happy that I get to be there to see it. We have been very busy - with playdates at parks, the zoo, the Children's Museum and just hanging out. 

We've had some great "conversations" with you lately! You definitely recognize your momma and daddy's voices. Your smiles are beautiful.

You are doing AWESOME at tummy time! I cannot believe how well and high you hold your head up.You haven't rolled over yet, but you have rolled to your side quite a few times. 

You love to lay on your playmat, sit in the bouncy seat and the swing! You take great naps in the swing, but I know we really need to start doing those in your crib.

Bath time is a favorite time of your day. You love the warm water and getting lotioned and swaddled up afterwards.

Sleep is still so variable. You've had lots of nights sleeping 8, 10, and even one night of 12 hours straight, but we also have nights where you've only gone 5-6 hours. Momma is hoping it gets more predictable soon. You are awake about 1.5 hours at every feeding during the day and still eating every three hours (7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm). We are still nursing except your 7pm feeding is a formula bottle. You are taking 6 ounces at that time.

We left you with a babysitter (your cousin Kali) for the first time a couple weeks ago. She said you were happy, but you were still awake when we got home. It seems like the hardest part about nights is getting you to go down for the first time. When you wake up to eat in the middle of the night, you do so well going right back to sleep.

You're wearing size 1 diapers and size 0-3 months clothes although I'm sure we'll be moving up to the next size very soon. We weighed you at home last night, and you were just over 13 pounds. 

Happy three month birthday, Colin!!
