Jack is 3 months


Measurements: 13 lbs. (this is after I weighed him myself) 23 in. (just a guess)

This month...
- He now holds his head up perfectly and tries to lift it up even when he is laying down.
- He loves  tummy time and always grunts while he is on his belly
- He laughed for the first time this month! He laughs a lot now and it just melts my heart each time he does! He mostly laughs when he gets scared and he just opens his mouth real big and has a cute tiny laugh :)
- He ROLLED OVER for the first time just a few days ago!!! I couldn't even believe it when I saw it so I made him do it again, and sure enough... He's got it down!
- He of course smiles a lot now that he is laughing. He smiles most for mommy and daddy but the occasional stranger will make him smile too.
- He sat in his Bumbo seat for the first time this month. When he does he still just wobbles his head all over the place.
- We finally have a routine! He eats every 3 hours on the dot and sleeps between 8pm and 8am! He is only waking up once a night and that is perfectly enough for me!
- He still loves his binki and it's a disaster if we leave the house without it
- He tasted his first sucker and Popsicle this month both thanks to daddy....
- He is getting too big for his bassinet :( and we have no other place to put him! (in our room that is)
- He now takes naps in his big boy crib and looks so tiny sleeping in there.
- He likes taking walks and babbles the whole time, but hates being in the car and usually cries the whole time. haha
- He can now grab things in front of him but it takes concentration and dedication. haha
- He went to the pool for the first time this month! We dipped his toes in.

- He went to his first sporting event/Ute game this month and his daddy couldn't be any prouder. We only stayed for the first half though because he hated it so much he screamed the whole time! Until he cried himself to sleep...

He is growing up so fast! I'm sad to see him change but I am so excited about each new stage! He is becoming so much fun now that he can interact with us!

I may be partial, but I think he is the cutest thing I have ever seen.

Who doesn't get a big smile after seeing this darling face?

I love being a mommy :)

Jack is 2 months old

Measurements: 12 lbs. (yes he has already gained 4 pounds in 2 months...) 23 in.

This month...
Lots of fun times with Daddy, Grandpa Reed, and Mommy. Also the bottom corner was of him sleeping in the hospital bed with me when I had my unexpected surgery. Poor little guy only had one change of clothes! We were unprepared.. And he loves to wiggle his arms out of this swaddle wrap, but I refuse to put him to bed without it!

-He never stops eating! That's why he has gained so much weight!
-He he now will smile at you if he wants to, some days that means it's a lot and some days he just stares at you.
-He already looks like a little man. The newborn stage lasted for a day and now he his too big and grown up!
-The only way he will sleep is in the swing. We are definitely in trouble with this one! Luckily he sleeps well at night in his bassinet. Still waking up twice a night too!
-For a while he was still wearing newborn diapers and onesies because he was so skinny! He didn't start wearing 0-3 month clothes until about the middle of his second month!
-He is starting to get a little personality and I just die every time he shows it.

-He had his second holiday, the 24th of July. We got to go to the parade and a Bee's game that night!

In his cute little Bee's outfit my sweet Grandpa Fletcher gave to him. (pictured with my grandma on the right)

-He just loves hanging out with Daddy and already knows he'll be "the fun one" :)

-He got to go on his very first boat ride and camping trip all in the same weekend! We didn't sleep over so it kinda wasn't really camping... haha
He was talking up a storm on the boat ride. He just melts my heart! I love him so much!

Jack is 1 month

I'm back to blogging! haha it's about time...
I'm starting from the beginning but I'm planning to be all caught up today! So here is what you all have missed...

So this first month isn't that great and a little different than the rest of the months. I blame myself and the fact that I was so out of sorts for so many weeks that I don't quite know what I was doing as far as monthly picture taking goes. But lets learn all about baby J in his first month!

Measurements: 9.5 lbs. 21 in.

This month...
- He started to focus on faces and would just stare into our eyes
- He already started lifting his head off our shoulder! We couldn't believe it, so we made him stop. haha
- He has become obsessed with eating and also his binki. He always has to have something in his mouth!
- He only wakes up twice a night which I think is awesome! We still don't have a routine but we are working on it!
- He got to experience his first holiday and one of my favorites!

 Him in his (too big) 4th of July outfit! We took the dog to the Park City parade with us and had a blast with the Ouzounians!
couldn't resist a little patriotic photo shoot :)

-He had to endure the endless picture taking from his mama :) 

Here we see the first family outing to Auntie Halle's baptism, the dog loving to cuddle up right next to baby, and him starting to smile in his sleep! Also the car seat pic was on a walk the day he turned 1 month. 

-He had so many wonderful people come to visit him!

Aunt Brooklyn, Great grandma Mimi, Daddy, Great Aunt Jamie, Grandma Shelly, Aunt Halle and Grandma and mama.

He of course changed so much in those first few weeks, but luckily I captured all of those perfect little features of his! 

My favorite is his perfect little belly button once his umbilical cord fell off. 

Well there you have it! a whole month of visitors and us never leaving the house. But it was great! We got to enjoy becoming new parents and that whole process of learning how to take care of a newborn!
