I’m a little behind on posting Samuel’s monthly baby photo shoot, but I DID take take the photos in time for his 3 month “Birthday.”
I keep telling Daniel that I can’t believe we’ve had Samuel home for three months (Three and a half now, actually.) He just keeps growing and growing. I feel like a broken record because I say that every month and, DUH, of course he keeps growing or we’d be worried. But it’s still hard to wrap my sleep-deprived, hormonal brain around.
He his smiling very freely now and has the sweetest little chuckle. It’s not a full on baby belly laugh yet, but he gives us a little “heh heh” that is so funny.
I don’t know how much he weighs right now, but he started wearing his 3-6 month clothes at about a month ago. He officially does not fit into any of the sweet, tiny things he wore when he came home. We’re about to have change him up to the next size in his cloth diapers, too. I still need to add to our diaper stash because we don’t quite have enough of the bigger size.
I broke my dairy fast the day before my birthday last month and the crazy poo did not return so we think he either doesn’t have a dairy intolerance or it’s minimal. So I’m back on dairy and trying to be mindful of not gorging on it, just in case.
He still takes his baby Zantac twice a day and it seems to really help with his reflux pain, but he does still get a bad belly ache sometimes which makes him scream so loud and high pitched that I think I black out a little.
Still nursing like a trooper. I’m so grateful breastfeeding is working out for us.
TEETHING! The little stinker has started to drool like crazy, gnaw on his hands and, occasionally, bite my nipples really hard. I do not approve.
He sure is sweet!
I can’t believe how fast my baby boy is growing! It was a few days late, but I’m still impressed that I successfully took and edited some two month photos. Can I get a round of applause for follow-through? His three month will be on the 4th of July and I’m excited to take his picture in the little red, white and blue outfits his Aunt Jo and Great Great got him. For comparison of his weed-like growing, here are his one month and two month teddy bear perspective shots.
His cheeks are definitely chubbier. I’ve had to put away quite a few of his little outfits because he’s already outgrown them! *sniff sniff* My big, long two-month-old is now wearing his 3-6 month clothes. I will really miss some of his sweet little Newborn outfits. He has grown about two inches and gained probably 5lbs+ by now. Samuel was almost 22 inches long and 11lbs 1oz almost two weeks ago at his check-up. As much as I miss my tiny little new guy, it’s so fun to watch him develop his personality. He started to really smile at us a few weeks ago and now he is a grinning machine on the verge of laughing. He thinks it’s absolutely hilarious when I ask him if he is a Bad, Bad Baby. We have also discovered that he has a ticklish tummy.
His sleeping has improved and he consistently goes down for one 5-6hr stretch almost every night. For this I am very grateful. Luna runs up to Samuel whenever he cries so she can check on him. We think she is still judging us to be ill-fit parents since we never lick him. “Poor bald puppy,” she is thinking.
He has been napping in his bassinet in the living room or in his swing during the day (although the motor in the swing is about to die on us so that may change depending on whether or not we decide to get a new swing or stick with the bouncy chair) and he sleeps in his cradle next to our bed at night. I think he’s about to outgrow the bassinet, though.
He does get tired of me taking his picture after a while.
