My Baby is three months old today!




I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by, but it’s true Oliver is three months old today!

At three months old he is…


  1. Nearly 25 inches long.
  2. Nearly 16 pounds!
  3. Not completely bald but close! He still is loosing his hair in funny tufts.
  4. Still exclusively breastfed.
  5. Is sleeping about 16 hours a day total.
  6. Not showing any signs of sleeping through the night, BOOO! He sleeps his first stretch starting at 7 or 8pm – and goes to 1 or 2am then the next for 4 hours and then he is either ready to rock and roll at 5 or 6 am or hell to get back to sleep.
  7. He smiles at me when he hears my voice or when I am staring at him smiling too.
  8. He coos sounds of happiness and kind of yell-coos sounds of bored or annoyed.
  9. Is wearing 6-9 month old clothes. 0-3 onesies turn into baby thongs on him.
  10. He is wearing #2 diapers. Though daddy got #3’s because he is now 3 months and he thought that’s what the number meant! LMAO!
  11. He’s reaching out for things we put in front of him but not quite grasping and holding on yet.
  12. During tummy time he is lifting himself up and looking around, he is also moving his legs like he is ready to start trying to crawl.
  13. He is holding his head up really well, but he cannot keep it there,
  14. Focusing on objects and clearly trying to process what it its.
  15. Trying to stand up on my lap and loves pushing off of my hands when he is having tummy time.
  16. He only cries when he is hungry, tired or bored. If I am a good mommy he rarely cries!
  17. Refuses to go to sleep in his crib for the night if it is light in his room. I have had to by light blocking curtains to trick him into going to sleep. 2 points mommy!
  18. Is eating 5 ½ ounces of milk nearly every three hours! Mommy is busy!
  19. Flailing his arms and legs nearly 20 hours a day! Yes, even in his sleep. It’s constant. I have had to stop watching the monitor or I will go cross-eyed staring for so long!
  20. He it the light and pure joy of my world and is teaching me the meaning of life!
