Bridger - 3 Months Old

Weight: 13 lbs 9 oz (2 month weight : 12 lbs 6 oz)
Height: 25 inches (2 month height : 23.5 in)
Head: 16 inches (2 month head circumference : 15.5 in)

Eat: Bridger is still exclusively breastfeeding.  He is starting to get a few baby rolls here and there but it's almost as if they are here one day and gone the next!  He grows so quickly and his weight just redistributes. 
His legs are filling out and he looks like he has turkey legs now instead of chicken legs :)
He still nurses about every 3 hours during the day and after he goes to bed he eats about twice, which means he eats a total of 8 times a day.
He doesn't grunt as much as he used to when he eats, but he still slurps a bit - thank goodness as it's so cute. 

Sleep: Bridger is still consistently taking at least 2 naps a day, sometimes 3. 
He has started waking up later, usually about 7am (thank goodness as 5am is early!).  He will usually nap from 9-11 then be up until 2, sleep until 4, be up until about 5 and take one shorter nap to be up around 6.  
We are still following his nighttime routine, and he still seems to like it.  
Bathtime is around 8 - which he loves!  Then it's jammies, a dream feed and a few books read by dad.
Lately he has gone to bed a bit awake but sleepy, and he will cry for about 5 minutes before zonking out. 
He is asleep between 9-10 and still doesn't wake up until about 1 or 2am. 
First sleep feed is around 2am, then another around 4am.
I think his sleep is pretty good for just being 3mo old - I know some mommas have babies already sleeping through the night at this point... But he is my baby and he sleeps just right for him. 

Favorites: Bridger still loves nursing, kisses, being outside and conversations with his momma in the morning and with his daddy at nighttime. He still loves telling stories! He is also still enjoying his strolls, his moby, bath time and his play mat.  Some of his new favorites this month are grabbing for his toys, splashing in the bathtub, looking in the mirror and standing up. He still loves to sit or stand up so that he can look around at everything!  He is still a morning person and is most happy when the sun is still low :) His favorite toy is still his little Sophie or perhaps his ball that hangs from his play mat.  He also really enjoys his hands, or your hands for that matter.  He slobbers and gnaws all over them!  His favorite blankets are the soft cozy ones - he likes feeling them on his face and of course, chewing on them. He started liking his car seat a bit more and will even ride in it without crying! This month he is also enjoying tummy time as long as he is propped up in the front - he will even do push ups at times. :) my strong boy. 

Dislikes: Bridger still doesn't like sitting in a wet or dirty diaper nor does he like getting clothes on or off.  This month he started getting better at afterbath times but still cries now and then.  He also does not like waking up alone- if I'm in bed with him he wakes up happy and smiley and gently.  If I'm not next to him and he wakes up alone he screams and cries as soon as he wakes. And of course, he still doesn't like being in his car seat if it is sitting still.  

September 6 - first bath in his bath tub
September 8 - first time grabbing and chewing on a toy
September 11 - first time standing up (while holding onto us)
September 21 - first time shooting with momma and dad
September 26 - first REAL belly laugh and giggle
September 27 - first time looking at a book while dad read to you

Little Boy,
You are so wonderful, simply my most favorite little person!
You are starting to get more blonde peach fuzz on your sweet little bald head!
Lately when you smile you bring your hands up to your face and sort of shy away - it is so sweet!
Your smiles and dimples and grins and giggles are irresistible.  I can't help but smile and laugh when I'm around you. 
Your laugh is infectious - ah just so stinking cute!
You are still wearing 3-6 month clothes, but anything labeled 3 months is too small. How are you so big?!
You love being with your mom and dad - sitting in our laps, cuddling, laying in our arms - you love it all.
You still make the greatest coos - sometimes you have the most in depth conversations with us, or with your lovies or with your self :)  
You love watching your dogs run around - I wonder if they talk to you as you always have the biggest smile on your face when you're watching them.  You giggle and grin... What do they say to you baby?
My days are filled with an immeasurable amount of happiness being able to spend them with you.
You are the quite the love bug - we are so blessed to be able to call you our little boy.
Love you always Bridger.
- Momma
