As of today, Noah is officially 3 months old. He did not have to go to the doctor this month, but according to our scale he weighs around 14 pounds 10 ounces and is 26.5 inches long. He is growing so fast! We have to buy some of his clothes in six months just so they are long enough. He is a very happy baby, and smiles at everyone.
He has become a lot more vocal and likes to make noise. He loves getting a bath now, and seems to really appreciate being naked. He can sit in his Bumbo seat, but is still a little wobbly. He tries to roll over, but gets stuck about half way. He hasn't quite figured out what to do with his arms just yet. Last month he discovered his hands, but this month he seems to enjoy them a lot more. He holds them in front of his face for long periods of time just staring at them. And he's figured out how to get them in his mouth. Sometimes he can manage to get just his thumb in there. Either way, it seems to calm him down and has helped him get to sleep several times. He also drools a lot more now, so I've started putting bibs on him in the last couple of days so he doesn't soak his clothes. I had to actually go back into the office this month, so he's had to start going to daycare on those days. He doesn't really seem to mind. He's happy in the morning and just goes to whoever is there with no problems. They all love him, but who wouldn't? He's just adorable!
We are going to work on getting him on a more set schedule in the next week or so and see if that will help with sleeping at night. We've had to start swaddling him at night again to help him stay asleep. Without it, he kicks and flails around so much he wakes himself up. Hopefully in the next week or two we'll have him sleeping through the night. Wish us luck!
We are convinced we have the most adorable baby ever. I know people say that you don't really know what love is until you have a child. I always thought that was a little cheesy, but as it turns out, it's completely true. When he stares at me with those big blue eyes and gives me that little grin, my heart just melts. We are so blessed to have been given this little guy to take care of for a while. We pray and know that God will guide us every step of the way, and Noah will one day grow into an amazing young man. For now, we'll just enjoy loving him as much as we can.
