Zavier at 3 Months
I don't know his stats!!! Look at his baby book ;)
He eats a lot. He can't last more than 3 hours during the day unless
he's sleeping, which only happens if he's been riding in the car and
gets nice and deep. I need to stay hydrated like nothing else to keep up
with his appetite. One day of not drinking enough water and the
following day feels empty. He's a growing boy! Can't wait for the sweet
spot from 4-7 months when I can hopefully drop the rest of this baby
weight and then some!
He still wakes about twice a night. Rarely it's three times but just as
before he only spend about 10 minutes awake/eating/diaper change before
going back to sleep. It's a smidge harder to get him back to sleep after
the 4/4:30am feeding but he does go back to sleep. That's the time he
joins us in bed so that I'm there to soothe him to sleep while half
sleeping myself. I hope he stays immobile for a while so we can continue
this safely or he can do better at sleeping from 4-7am.. Those are the
only options. He does tend to fight his sleep a bit at times, mostly at
night and he's very position specific. It's trying at times but I have
to say I handle it better this time around than with Scarlett. I used to
get pretty frustrated but now i just remind myself that, hello! he's a
baby! this is what babies do.
He still talks and smiles lots. He started batting at and grabbing toys
recently. He loves his hands and sucks on them lots. He loves laying on
the activity mat kicking and punching around. His neck strength gets
better each day, especially pulling him up by his arms, so that's good.
We don't do too much tummy time but when we do he does a good job. He's
been rolling over during tummy time since like 8 weeks from belly to his
back. I think it's bc he would lean one way and the weight of his head
would roll him over. I guess it counts if it's happened more than five
times tho. Right? Right!
This little boy loves the bath. He kicks and splashes himself out of the
little seat part so I have to hold him down most of the time to keep
him safe. He could spend so much time splashing around and I'm sure he
will have so much fun next summer with swimming and water table play! In
the meantime, he'll continue loving his bath!
He loves watching Scarlett run around the room playing. She asked to
hold him this month and has held his hands several times. She likes to
lay on the activity mat with him and have him kick her. It's very
heartwarming to watch them interact!
I thank goodness that Zavier is a nice laid back and relaxed baby. Sure
he needs to be held for his naps but that won't last forever so I'm
cherishing it while it does. He waits patiently for me when I need him
to and he rarely cries. We love him so much!
