Three Months

Dear Charlie,

You are three months old!  I would say that time has flown by... but that would be a straight-up lie.  I think a lot of it has to do with going through Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  The phrase "slower than Christmas" took on a WHOLE new meaning this year!  But every day has some wonderful moments.  Here are some things about you right now...

(Look how sweet you are!)

* You love to smile and laugh at me.  And since your two overnight stays with just your Dad, you've been connecting with him a lot more, too!  He loves it!
* You've started chatting with me... making the cutest cooing noises I've ever heard!
* You like going on walks, but you hate the sun in your eyes.
* You will stay awake and hang out with people but you really love to sleep.  A lot.
(This picture was taken by your dad at 5:30 in the morning when y'all were having a sleepover when I was at a sleepover with my girlfriends!)

* You make a noise like a whinnying horse when you're eating sometimes.
* You weighed 13 pounds and were 24.25 inches at your 2 month doctor's appointment
* You don't mind when Pop and B's HUGE dog, Sophie (a lab/pyrenees mix... 105 pounds), gives you tiny kisses on your face.
* You still don't have a "schedule", but I'm learning to be okay with it... especially since you are doing SO much better sleeping at night.  We had a week there where you stayed awake from about 10pm to 3am and that was NOT okay.  You're getting the hang of it now.
* You take a 2-4 hour nap every morning.  And usually, I sleep then too!  Your afternoon naps range from 30 minutes to 2 hours... just depends on the day and what we're doing!  I know, I know... I will try to get you on a schedule sometime in the next two months.  But I'm loving the flexibility of this!

You are awake!  I will post more pictures soon.  Or people can see you on Facebook.... that's where all the pictures live.

I love you,
Mama

He's so cute Liz! We have never been schedulers either. I think it all works out. :)

Wow, those are some long naps! Way to go, Charlie!! Nice that you can get some good rest. Glad to hear he's doing better at night, too!

I know what you mean about it being slow. Especially in those early months, it always has felt slow to me, too. I know looking back on it one day it will seem like it flew by, but when you're in the middle of it, it sure doesn't feel that way!

I love monthly bday posts. I tried to be very consistent with Carsen and always do one so I could look back on them! He is such a pumpkin :) It is slow but also sooo fast. I am about to have a 5 year old, and I cannot even remember Carsen when she was a baby!! Mom brain is a killer. You are doing such a great job Liz. I am so glad that you are just going with the flow!!
