3 months.....

(this should have been posted last week on the 19th, but two sick kiddos prevented me from getting much done!)

three months
Truthfully, it feels like Lawson has been around a lot longer than three months.  It feels like he has been here all along.  Maybe that is weird.  The fact is, having another little one around hasn't been a super big adjustment in terms of everyday life.  Yes, I have to nurse every three hours when I didn't before, and yes, I am up during the night more than before, but really those are the only major changes.  My normal day to day life still consists of lots of diapers, laundry, housecleaning, discipline, cooking, and playing with kids.  Yes, three kids is more work than two kids, just not as much as you might think.

Now on to Lawson.

Here are some things to know about Lawson at three months.

Height/Weight:  No idea.  We don't have a Dr. appointment this month so I don't get to find out this info.  He does look bigger to me pretty much everyday, so I am sure he is growing.

Clothes:  Still 3-6 months depending on if he is in a cloth diaper or not.  Hard to get those onesies buttoned up over a ginormous diaper.  Speaking of onesies....that is pretty much all he wears.  I was much more concerned with the girls and their clothing when they were babies.  Not so much with Lawson.  He is almost always in a onesie. 

Eating/Sleeping habits:  Eats pretty much every 2 1/2 to 3 hours and then plays for a bit (maybe an hour or hour and a half), and then sleeps until it is time to eat again.  At night he is less consistent.  Some nights he will sleep from 9-10pm until 4-5am, other times he is up every three or four hours.  It is never the same two nights in a row. 

New things:  Lawson has started rolling from tummy to back.  Never in front of us though, always in his bed.  We put him down on his tummy (yes, we are sinners), and then come in and he is on his back wide awake.  The only way he will sleep is on his tummy.  He has also started laughing a bit which is adorable, and making more and more baby noises.  It is pretty great.

Special Outings and Events:  Between two and three months Lawson has taken his first trip to the zoo, celebrated his sister's second birthday, gone to two weddings and celebrated Easter!  He had a busy month!!!  Lucky for us, he is a very easy baby to take places.  He did very well everywhere with the exception of my friend Kelli's wedding.  He did great there until the music started!  He does not like loud noises.  (in fact, he starts crying anytime his sisters are screaming)

Other random tidbits:  I used to think Lawson looked like Isabelle, but now I think he looks more like Molly.  Lawson's sisters continue to shower him with hugs and kisses every chance they get.  Lawson is still not a fan of being outside.  The wind drives him nuts.  Lastly, we have several nicknames for Lawson......little man, bub, bubs, bubsy, and wasson (which is how Molly pronounces his name).

So while it feels like he has been around forever, I still don't want him to keep growing so fast.  Well, except for that I wouldn't mind him being able to sleep more, and wipe his own ass butt.  Okay, so maybe he can get a little bigger.  Just not too big.  Ahhh, the joys of motherhood..... constantly wanting your kids to be both older and younger at the same time!

I love you, Lawson.  Happy three months!

  1. I let both of my kiddos sleep on their tummies from day one. At 8 and 10 years old, I haven't noticed any residual effects yet ;) Except maybe for the fact that they both were and still are awesome sleepers.
