Happy 3 months to this sweet baby of ours! The more babies you have, the more you wish time would slow down, and the faster it goes. Every little stage brings so much fun, yet I think I am bound to forever have baby fever. The newborn stage is just SO special. The scrunchy snuggles before they can stretch out on you, why can’t that last a little bit longer? I do love getting more smiles and more sleep though, I guess that’s the upside, right?
Jude is smiling, kicking, swatting toys, never staying on his tummy long, and absolutely adores his brother and sister. He also kind of hates how loud they can be and lets us all know by the time 6PM rolls around and he is just plain DONE.
He had his first bottle this month and took it like a champ! He eats every 3 hours and still likes to bunch it all up at the end of the day. He takes his last feeding between 9:30-10 and falls right to sleep until at least 7AM. It’s a beautiful thing. He is still in our room at night since some nights he can be a little restless. He’ll be sharing with Jase so it may be awhile before we officially move him at night. He sleeps in their room during the day for naps though.
Jude LOVES attention and loves for you to sit there and talk to him. He also gets flustered easily when it comes to eating…I sure hope that little temper doesn’t carry on into toddler years. His eyes are definitely blue and I couldn’t be more happy! Three blue eyed babies has this mama pretty happy. Although, Chad is still holding out for a child with brown eyes, we’ll see about that one.
Jude also found his fists this month and if he doesn’t have his paci, he usually is sucking on his fists. He finally moved out of Newborn clothes. I packed them away literally the day he turned three months, so now we are in 0-3.
It’s already crazy to look back at these pictures and see just how much he has changed. i really think he looks a lot like his big brother the older he gets. So crazy how that happens. The kids still absolutely adore him and insist on kissing and hugging him all day long. Whenever Jude is crying Jase says it’s because “he’s looking for his best friend Jase.” Doesn’t that just make your heart melt? Sure does mine. Elyse still calls him “Baby June” not sure how long that will stick.
Jude your a joy to have around and I am soaking every bit of you up. You remind me to slow down on the crazy days and savor what sitting there being fully present can do for the heart.
Until next month.
