3 months down

I have to admit, the time is flying. Everyone said it would, but I had no idea how right they were.

At three months Grayson:

  • weighs about 12.5 lbs
  • wears size 1 diapers
  • wears mostly 3-6 clothes, but still fits in to some 0-3 outfits.
  • is finally getting hair on the top of his head. It's a lighter, reddish color than the hair he was born with.
  • is sleeping 10-12 hours each night, but has given up any real naps during the day. He prefers 4 short (15-20 minute) power naps instead.
  • has really figured out how to use his voice. He babbles up a storm on the changing table and when we sit him up on our laps. He tries to mimic the inflections in our voice, which is hilarious when he starts screeching.
  • is laughing pretty regularly now. He squints his eyes when he finds something particularly funny. He also screeches when he laughs.
  • smiles instantly when he sees mom and dad.
  • is starting to really understand how his fingers work. He'll actually reach for toys in front of him and will grab on as long as the object fits in his tiny palm. If the toy is too wide, he'll just bat at it.
  • is a pinching machine. It hurts!
  • knows that he has feet, but doesn't quite know what to do with them. Occasionally he'll grab a toe, but he hasn't tried to put them in his mouth just yet.
  • is REALLY close to rolling over from his tummy to his back. He can get slightly more than halfway before his bottom arm stops the progress.
  • does NOT like to be sitting still. If we're holding him and sit, it's over. If we're in the car and not moving, scream city. Same goes for the stroller or if I try to put him in the swing when he's awake. He wants nothing to do with anything that isn't actually moving.

The eyes kill me. Hope you're all doing well. It sounds like he's definitely thriving and enjoying the time with mom and dad!!
