Luke - 3 months

Luke at three months old!

-on june 4th (2 months and three weeks) you weighed 13.1 pounds (35%), length 24.25  inches (64%), head circumference 42 inches (93%).  you'll be passing up your sister in no time!  and i can't believe your head was so big... didn't seem that big to me until it was measured!
-talking/cooing lots more!
-you've made some little giggles here and there.
-definitely ticklish but just aren't sure what to do about it yet.
-you go to sleep great on your own at night but for naps you are in your swing.  i'm a little worried about this habit but i guess we still have a little time and at least it's in your swing and not on me.
-still loves a good swaddle and paci to sleep.
-asleep for the night around 7:30-8:30 depending on your last nap. up once to eat around 1-3am and then up for the day about 7ish. lately though you get really restless around 5am so i just have to give you your paci a few times until you're really ready to wake up.  makes for one tired mom!
-awake span is still about an hour. maybe a little more if you got a good nap.
-still a pro at the 30-45 minute nap so instead of eat, play, nap for a good chunk... it's usually a short nap but you're still tired so you stay in your swing until you fall back to sleep for another short nap until you eat again.  i feel like all you're doing is trying to get to sleep!  cause one short nap is never enough for you and then you'll get way over tired and not want to nurse.
-nursing about every 3+ hours in the day.
-found your hands.  eating and watching them.
-still working on tummy time being longer than a couple minutes without getting upset.  but i guess having a big head might make it a little harder :)
-still loves a warm bath.
-following objects or people with your eyes.
-getting great at falling asleep in your carseat now! (as long as you have a paci!) i'm grateful for this too because it is a must being number two!  most morning naps are in your carseat while we do a quinn related activity out of the house.
-still a happy, content baby when your needs are met.
-i can't eat broccoli or eggs without you getting a horrible belly ache.  you scream your head off for about an hour and nothing makes you feel better!  no paci, all the holding/rocking i can do, a bath... nothing.  it's too sad.  so i've learned my lesson.
-size 2 diapers
-you looove to wait to poop until you're all swaddled and almost asleep for a nap!  and it takes you a while to get all the way to sleep so i'm not enjoying this little trick!
