3 months going strong

Happy 3 months to my big, beautiful boy!  He is just the apple of my eye.  

 If your thinking he looks huge... then you're right.  He gets the Biggest Baby Ever award.  He is officially off the charts.  He's 18.9 lbs and 26.4"!!!  Just more of him to love!
I'm not sure how the last 3 months have gone by so fast.  More over, I'm not sure how my baby has grown so incredibly fast!  I'm so glad I take tons of pictures of him all day every day because he changes so quickly.
Some nights he'll sleep all the way through.  Some nights he wakes up once, quickly nurses and then goes right back to sleep.  Ever so thankful that this big guy sleeps so well at night!  We finally got a baby monitor and he is sleeping in his crib at night now.   Moving him to his room was super hard for me.  I cried the first night!  I still don't like having him so far, even if it's just across the hall.  But, if he wakes up at night I always bring him in bed with me to nurse and do the same in the morning when he wakes up.  Usually he'll drift off again after nursing in the morning around 6:30/7 am and I can sneak in an extra hour of sleep.  Nursing is still going great.  We don't even have to think about it anymore.  I don't need to nurse him at night with a night light to try and get him correctly positioned.  He knows what to do (but still ONLY on the right. Bah!).  He's about to roll over any day now.  He is so big, it's just so hard for him!  But, he's really strong and can arch his back and push with his leg and get up on his side.  He moves himself around really well by kicking his legs and wiggling around, so we have to be careful.  He still loves bath time and just laughs and splashes around.  We put him in our pool a couple times and he kicks his legs and generally seems to enjoy water. He's getting more alert and improving his hand eye coordination.  He seems to get more interested in everything every day.  He's showing more and more interest in his toys.  And he's getting stronger and stronger at tummy time.  He is just a total joy.  I love spending my days with him.  I love how we can spend minutes at a time just staring at each other.  It's like he's lovingly staring at me as much as I am at him.  He's starting to do the most adorable baby giggles.  It melts my heart! He's happy, easy going and so much fun.  I've said that I love a lot of things in my life, but there is no love like this amazing love I have for my child.  Best ever!

He is such a big boy! So funny that he only nurses on the right. ;)
