Time Flies…

Can you believe this guy is THREE MONTHS old today?!?!
I can’t!

So what’s new now that he is three months old? Well, since you asked….

1. he is extremely social. He has always recognized me as his mama, but now he picks me and Cort out in situations where there are lots of people and locks eyes with us. He still smiles at just about anyone, but he definitely knows mama and daddy from everyone else.

2. He is a go getter! As I said in my last post, Eddie is getting a wee bit mobile. He enjoys his activity mat, but can now plant his feet when he’s on his back and lift his butt off the ground and swivel it around. It’s pretty funny. This causes him to scoot around on his back. He has also gotten himself onto his side a few times doing this. I think this is the warm-up to rolling over!

3. He’s a big eater! He’s downing 35 ounces a day these days!

4. He is still a great night sleeper–getting about 8-10 hours at night. He takes a couple naps a day as well getting about 5 hours in during the day.

5. He has started drooling…a LOT! He even blows bubbles and makes a razz sound with his lips and tongue occasionally.

6. He loves to talk. He has added a few consonant sounds (like Ah-goo and mmaaaa) to his repertoire instead of just vowel sounds.

7. He can hold his head almost completely still without wobbling. He still lets it fall back if he sits too long or if one of us is pulling him up from his back, but it doesn’t wobble all over the place anymore.

8. He is doing better with tummy time and actually lifts his head to look at us and coo at us. I even got a big smile yesterday before he put his head down and sucked on his arm.

So many new things are happening all the time…it’s almost hard to keep track of it all! Tomorrow another big step…full time daycare! That’s right, I go back to work which means Eddie will be going to Amy Jo’s every day, all day. He loves her and the kids, so I know he will do great. We will have to see how his mama does!

We are so proud of our little 3-month old! We can’t believe that it’s been 3 months since we were in the hospital welcoming him to our family…does this mean the rest of his life is going to flash past us this quickly? I guess we will have to find out. What I do know is that Cortney and I LOVE being parents to this little guy! He brings us joy every single day!

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.

    oh kates! it's hard to believe that he is that old already. i hate to tell you but it does just fly by. i once heard this quote and find it to be so true, "the days are long, but the years fly by." i think times speeds by even faster the more you have. just reminds you to enjoy life to the fullest with these little babes 🙂 good luck tomorrow! i'm sure it will get easier 🙂
