Deacon: 3 Month Update



Weight:
Probably around 15 lbs these days

Length:
Roughly 24"

Clothing Size:
We are officially making the transition from 3 month clothes to 6 month. I've held out as long as I can, but that little cloth-diaper-booty is just too squished in his 3 month clothes!

Nicknames:
75% of the time - Buster
20% of the time - Stinker
5% of the time - Bubba, Buddy, Mister, My Wittle Baaabbbbyyy

Sleep:
Right now his 3 month growth spurt is throwing him off his sleep schedule. The past week or so he has been sleeping until around 4 AM, eating, and going back to sleep until 7:30 AM when I wake him up.

Diet:
Breastmilk (and lots of it). I'm starting to get really excited about introducing him to some different foods in a couple months! I'm so curious about what he'll like, refuse, etc.

Loves:
Getting his diaper changed, making funny faces, trying to watch TV when he can sneak a peek, being outside, sitting up (with a little help) and his paci.

Dislikes:
Missing naps.

Milestones:
We're on the cusp of a couple big ones, but nothing just yet. He loves sitting up with a little support on his lower back, and I think his top, front teeth are starting to sprout (though it could be another month or so before we actually see them).

Best Moment:
Taking Deacon with us on our 2nd anniversary celebration was pretty special. He got to take his first bluebonnet pic, visit the Blue Bell creamery AND see where his Mommy and Daddy were married!

Worst Moment:
Not getting to try any ice cream at Blue Bell. Talk about torture :wink:

Other Tidbits:
- It will be a while before we know one way or another, but I'm pretty sure Deacon is going to be a lefty. It is definitely the hand/side he favors most of the time...
- I've been reminded a lot recently of how lucky we are to have such an easy-going, happy and healthy baby! He doesn't have a daily fussy time anymore and is generally just a smiley chunk of love :-) I know he might not always be this "easy" to parent, but I feel so blessed to be his Mama. He is truly a joy!
