Micah is 3 Months Old

Our baby boy is now 3 months old!  He is changing and growing everyday.  He's such a sweetheart!

We went to the doctor (as you know) and Micah now weighs 12lbs. 7oz.  He is such a happy baby and is starting to 'talk' more now.  I love his coos and sweet baby sounds.  He's now smiling at you when you talk to him and he has found his hands.  He hasn't yet found his feet though.

He's all about chewing on his hands and slobbering all over the place.  He is still spitting up a lot but it's not as bad as it used to be.  But now it sometimes comes out his nose - how lovely!

He's gotten so strong and is constantly kicking and moving his feet.  He likes to be straight; meaning he wants to stand or be held facing forward.  He really doesn't like to be cradled or sit.  I literally have to bend his body for him to get him to sit - so we're going to work on that.

He's started to put a few things in his mouth.  I've seen him able to grab something that's by his side and bring it to his mouth.  He hasn't yet reached for a toy but we'll keep working on that one too.

He's sleeping through the night consistently now.  Usually from about 8 - 9:30ish until 5 - 7ish.  So pretty much 8 hours every night. I'm letting him nap a little longer if he wants and will sometimes go 4 hours between feedings.   

He loves his animal activity mat.  He'll lay there forever and play with the elephant and zebra.  He's now able to grab onto the animals and sometimes put them in his mouth.  He talks to them.  He's now started scooting and kicking a lot and will sometimes scoot off of the play mat a little bit or turn sideways.

We're so happy our baby is healthy and happy and doing well!   Maybe I'll get a video up next time. :)


 Ain't he cute!
