Noah - 3 Months

Weight - 13.4 lbs

Height - 25 in

Appearance - I hear how you look just like daddy ALL the time! Your hair is getting lighter. The new hair growth coming in is actually blond.

Eating - You are still quite the healthy eater! If I had to guess, I'd say you nurse about every 2 hours and then once or twice a night.

Sleeping - Your sleeping went a little crazy this past month since we were gone for almost three weeks on vacation (we arrived home the day you turned 3 months). It's been mostly cat naps with a good 2-3 hour nap every couple of days. Despite that, you have remained the same happy-go-lucky baby!

Sizes - You transitioned into size 2 diapers. Finding a 0-3 month outfit for you is hard so most of your clothes are now 3 month size.

Milestones - June 27th, you started your first cross-country road trip from Arizona to Michigan. And then on July 14th, you got to do it again from Ohio to Arizona. The first couple of hours of the trips you did not enjoy it and cried, but after that you did fine and slept most of the time or watched and talked to Alena and Christian.

On Tuesday July 2, you rolled from your tummy to your back for the first time! Mommy didn't get to see but you showed Gramama, daddy, and Alena.

July 12 - 14 you went on your second camping trip. Again, you did great! This time we went with about 40+ family members and there were many willing hands to hold you and love on you.

You have been much more vocal and and will "talk" when tired as if you are trying to keep yourself awake. You also talk to your brother and sister in the car.

Noah, I could not ask for a better baby than you. You fit right in and go along with us without any problems. You are extremely easy going, mellow, sit back and watch everything, taking it all in. You have become more vocal and it is just so cute! And you're rolling now too! You just do not want to stay a little baby. Christian has really become attached to you lately and always calls you 'his baby'. We love watching you grow and discover new things you can do! I feel like you've been a part of this family forever and then at times I think, "Weren't you just born yesterday?!" These three months have flown by and I know time is not going to slow down for me.

Likes - people watching, nursing, being held, being worn in the mei tai, sitting in the Bumbo, and when we talk to you
Dislikes - dirty diapers, having to wait for anything (diapers, eating, and being picked up)

Don't worry, I didn't die

I just went on vacation!

We spent 2 lovely weeks visiting family and wishing it didn't have to end. I had all these grand ideas of blogging while on vacation and well... as you can tell, that didn't happen. I will have several blogs to post in the coming week. I'll probably have a few posts about the vacation, our drive across the country (yes we DROVE across the country with three kids!), and Noah's 3 month update.

Stayed tuned...
