I cannot believe that Parker Reed is THREE months old! Each month has blessed us with a another little piece of Parker's sweet personality. We are having SO much fun with him. Here are a few things that have happened this month....
Length: About 25 inches (we go in next week for a check-up)
Weight: I'm going to guess 16-ish pounds. You are a whopper!
Head Circumference: 18 inches
Milestones This Month:
-You can sit up with assistance very easily.
-You can raise your head off the ground for about 30 seconds while doing tummy time.
-You can roll over from side to tummy and side to back. (You actually rolled over tummy to back the day after you turned 3 months though!)
-You discovered your hands at around 9-10 weeks old and are obsessed with sucking them and looking at them. You also rub your eyes when you're sleepy. It's the cutest thing!
-You have moved up to big boy bottles and drink 6-8 ounces of breast milk every 3.5 hours during the day. You can nurse in about 15-20 minutes which is exciting for mom!
-Your record for sleep so far is 7.5 hours! You've been doing this pretty consistently since you were 9-10 weeks old. :) SO proud!
-You've grown out of a lot of your 0-3 month clothes and are mostly in 3-6 month clothes.
-You figured out that you are ticklish on July 5th while your daddy was tickling you! It was hilarious.
-You let out little giggles when you talk but haven't done a full-on belly laugh yet.
-You got your first set of shots this month....it was more traumatic for mommy though. :(
Things You Like This Month:
-Your Bumbo! You get so proud of yourself and smile like crazy when you're sitting up.
-Your Nap Nanny. I love your Nap Nanny too!
-Your hands. You suck on them all the time--we can hear it from across the house!
-Books. You have really taken an interest in your books lately and really look at each page.
-TV. You get sucked into the TV like the rest of us. You totally zone out but still suck your paci like crazy while watching which is pretty funny. I feel bad for letting you watch TV though, so I bought....
-Baby Einstein videos. These creep me out but you are mesmerized by them! They are great for when I have to shower/do productive grownup things around the house.
-Daddy. And you love when daddy "flies" with you.
-You love bath time.
-You L-O-V-E to be naked.
Things You Don't Like This Month:
-You don't like when your schedule gets off! We did a very casual version of Baby Wise with you, and your routine got really messed up when we were traveling...you were over-tired and NOT happy!
-You don't like the nursing cover and always try to pull it down while we're out in public. Because of this, I have flashed an entire Mexican restaurant. :-/
-Your legs were achy after your shots and you hated that it hurt to kick. It was so sad!
Special Memories From This Month:
-You drove to Galveston (Texas), Monroe (Louisiana), and Odessa (Texas) this month. You were a travel champ as usual!
-You stuck your feet in the Gulf of Mexico this month and loved it!
-You went swimming for the first time this month. We bought a huge blow-up pool, spent about an hour getting it ready, and then you sat in it for about 5 minutes. Very anti-climatic. :)
-You rode in a golf-cart parade on your first 4th of July.
-You met most of the rest of your family this month, including two sets of great-grandparents, a great-aunt and a few cousins, and your second cousin who is 5 days older than you!
-I loved getting to see you coo and talk to everyone in our family. They LOVED you so much and you were so happy to entertain them! It broke my heart when we had to take you home.
My baby is getting so big! I can't believe it. Have a wonderful day, friends!!
