Oh my sweet little nugget boy, how are you already 3 months old?! Where have the last 13 weeks gone?
My peditrician's office only does well baby visits when it's time for shots, so I don't know how much he weighs or how long he is this month. But, I can definitely tell he's growing!
Just look at the difference!

Baths. I could spend all day with this kid during bath time. He loves it. He's discovering his feet and legs and just splashes them all around. So stinking cute!
The car. He is almost always perfectly content in the car. Last week on the way home from the sitter, I caught him grinning at his reflection in the mirror we have above his carseat. My heart melted!
Snuggles. He loves to snuggle and nap on us. I'm trying to break him of this for the sake of the sitter, but he's just so dang snuggly that I usually end up giving in. Hey, it's my rule so I can break it!
Things he hates:
Burping. For some reason in the past 2 weeks or so, he has decided that he hates burping and will scream and arch his back while we try to burp him. I've started putting his paci in his mouth and that usually works.
Lotioning up after a bath. I swear, you'd think I was rubbing hot acid on him rather than yummy smelling lotion!
Other things of note:
He rolled over for the first time yesterday!!! I was in his room putting away hand me downs from our trip...a month ago... and he was getting fussy in his bouncy chair, so I put him on the floor for tummy time. He pushed himself up and just rolled right over! He's always been really good at holding his head up and pushing up during tummy time. He even rolled over a few times at like 3 weeks. But this was the real thing!

The sleep thing is still going well. Naps are done in the crib when he's at home. At night he goes right down. He has kept up the spit the paci out game. But, last night, I tried giving him a bed time bottle. We usually feed him 5 oz every 3 hours, with his last one being at like 6:30 or so. Since bed time is 8, I usually just put him to bed. But, twice this past weekend I heard about the bed time bottle, so I thought I'd try my hand at it and gave him 2 oz. Slept like a champ! Only one round of spit the paci and that was at 5:45 so I was already awake!
To my sweet boy:
I love you so much that I can't even stand it. Sometimes I just look at you and get tears in my eyes because I just can't believe that you're mine. You are worth every single thing we went through to get to you.
I love you-
