Hayden Greer {3 months}

Hayden Greer, you're three months old!

You weigh almost 13 pounds! You are my chunky monkey. 
You are about 24 inches long.

You just started wearing size 2 diapers this week. And we have moved up to 3-6 month clothes mostly, there are still a few 0-3 months that you wear. 

You LOVE to eat! Usually while I'm at work you will eat 14-18 ounces. You mostly eat every 2-3 hours, you aren't very consistent right now and that's mostly because our schedule is crazy. You have taken to the bottle really well and haven't complained much. Thank you for being so easy going! 

You had an awesome sleep schedule and then mommy went back to work and messed you up a bit. Thankfully this week we have gotten into a routine. We go to bed around 9:30 and you wake up at 2 and 5 to eat. If you can you will sleep until 7:30-8. But on days when you go to Mae Mae's mommy wakes you up much earlier.
You don't really have any kind of nap schedule, it varies daily. You mostly cat nap, but some days you will take a few really long naps.
You love to cuddle when you sleep! When you're tired you want to be rocked with your paci and a blanket near your face. I promise you're watched closely so you can still breathe.
You are getting really good at sitting up and trying to control your head, but your favorite thing to do is stand. It's so funny how you wobble around and try to hold yourself up. You think you're big stuff!

You have the best smile and you laugh a lot when we put your feet to your face. You also love your changing table and smile so much when you lay up there, silly boy. You are also starting to smile more when certain people talk to you {like mommy ;)}

You are a wide eyed baby and you love to watch what's going on around you! I can't really figure out what color your eyes will be. I think they almost have a blue/gray hue.

You have really started watching and figuring out your feet. You love to kick, especially in the bath tub.

You are working on rolling over and get onto your side really well. You haven't made it completely over though. Your brother is working on teaching you, it's really sweet. He tells you, "I'll teach you to roll over, baby. "

Mommy went back to work this month and you've done so well. I'm so thankful that you're easy going and don't fuss about much of anything. I think it's way harder on mommy to leave every morning than you realize. Mae Mae did say the first day you completely refused the bottle in the afternoon, but other than that you have been awesome! I'm so proud of you!

You're brother is as protective as ever of you. He won't let the little boy at Ms. Heather's come near you and he tells everyone, "That's MY baby brother." He thinks you're so cute, loves to play toys with you and help bathe you. It's so precious to watch him love on you.

You are such joy and light to our day. We can't wait to get home to you {and your brother} and snuggle you. You are a wide eyed, hairy, smiley boy and we ADORE you! We love you to the moon and back, Hayden Greer! Happy 3 months!
