{ griffin:3 months}

Griffin, are you really three months old?  When people said time flies when you are having fun, they weren’t kidding.  How is it that you have changed so much in such a short period of time? 

You are still growing, but still on the small side.  At your three month doctor’s visit, you weighed 13lbs 2oz and 23 inches long.  Your Mama and Daddy are tall beings, so you will probably hit a growth spurt…one day.  I finally bit the bullet, and put away your newborn clothes and pulled out your 0-3 months and 3 months.  It was bittersweet to see those tiny outfits being put away, but I love to look at your new clothes. We went ahead and bumped you up to size 2 diapers and I feel like you will be in there for at least 2 months.  We shall see.

You sleep in your pack-n-play at night, but have been very restless.  Your doctor said that we could put you in your bouncer to sleep in at night, because of possible reflux.  Thankfully, you do not have any problems in the reflux area, but you seemed to like the bouncer and continued to sleep all night.  Such a rock star!  It is so nice to get a full nights rest. 

You are eating 4-5 ounces every 3-3.5 hrs.  I feel like you are going through a small growth change, and need more to fuel your body.  We switched up your formula from the advance to the sensitive and you seem to be more settled after your bottle.

I think my favorite thing this month is you finding your voice.  You have learned to get our attention by using it too. Such a boy!  When you are awake, you are still moving constantly.  Your legs and arms are definitely getting a workout. You are also trying to get abs of steel.  You try so hard to sit up but can’t do it unassisted. 

You have found your hands and you think they taste awesome.  You will spend a few seconds admiring them, and straight to the mouth they go.  Speaking of mouth, you love giving open mouth kisses.  I really adore them, even if I’m wiping my face down numerous times a day.  You are reaching to grab everything!  If you see it, you try your best to get ahold of it, even Mama’s hair.

You have a new favorite game too, Griffin.  You and Daddy made a game out of sticking your tongue out at each other.  It is quit adorable and I love seeing you mimic your Daddy.  I know there is more of that to come.

A fun new “milestone” happened this month too.  Drool!  You are the #1 drooler for sure. I knew that there was a possibility of the teething process to start early, even months before a tooth broke through, but holy drool.  I know drooling comes with the teething territory, but I never knew it would be this amount of spit.  Thank goodness we have plenty of bibs.

Since having you, Holidays have just been more fun!  This month we celebrated your first Fourth of July and you were very patriotic. 

You started daycare this month and it was such a hard transition.  You are in a class full of friends your age and have started having “tummy time” dates while you are there. 


You lift?

Griff with his cousin Jacob.  I love their faces.
It seems like you are changing every day. It amazes me how much you are able to do in the short three months you have been here. We are certainly blessed with a wonderful boy and couldn’t ask any more from you.  Happy Four Months big guy!
