Jacob - 3 months
Weight: 16lbs 8oz
Milestones: Jacob is holding his head really well when held and when on his tummy. He bats at toys like crazy, and has recently started grasping them. His hands are much more controlled now, and you can tell when he's trying really hard to grab a toy. He started kicking up his legs, as if he wants to roll over (back to tummy), so I've been practicing that with him. He is also spending time in his Bumbo, stregthening his trunk. I had heard bad things regarding using the Bumbo too early (spine issues), so I've been hesitant to use it until now. I also help him stand, which he loooves!!
Sleep: Jacob is still sleeping in his room, and still waking 2-3 times per night. He typically gives us 3-5 hours straight at the beginning of the night, and then wakes every 2 hours. On a positive note, he has started napping in his crib during the day! He typically takes 4-5 30 minute naps each day. We do the same nighttime routine, minus bath and PJs, and it seems to be working well for us.
Eating: Jacob is still eating like a champ, every 2 hours. Although I've started working with him to stretch out this time. Need to get him eating more, less frequently!!
Clothes size: 6 month mostly, some 3-6 month stuff
Diaper size: Size 3
Best Moment: Labor Day weekend - we went over to a family friends' house to watch the UT home opener and we took Jacob swimming for the first time!
Worst Moment: We've had a few bad nights, but its truly incredible how the mind somehow forgets the details and just leaves you tired. I'm thankful for that.
Teeth: No teeth!
Looking forward to: I'm really excited to introduce solids next month! I think it will help Jacob sleep longer, and hopefully extend his feed times. He's already showing signs of wanting solids, so I'm hopeful he'll be ready in a month.
This month has been pure joy! Jacob is really starting to blossom and grow. He's so interactive, and you can tell he really enjoys playing and learning. Josh commented the other day that he gets excited to come home now, so he can play with Jacob. So sweet seeing my boys play together. :)
