little D is 3 months old!

My little guy is a whopping THREE MONTHS OLD today! How did that happen? He's practically in college already!! 

Jeez, what am I going to do?


No, seriously. Does that whole, "put a rock on your head to stop you from growing" thing actually work? I'm not above trying it.


He has become the most amazing little person over the past three months. He's gone from being a cute, floppy, kind of wrinkly poop machine to a full fledged human with a personality!!
 (It's so weird how that happens.)



So, a few stats for the little shamrock:

  • He sleeps from about 10 pm to 4 am, has a bottle, then goes back to sleep until about 7 am. I consider that sleeping through the night, for which I am eternally grateful!


  • He smiles all. the. time. He's seriously the happiest baby I've ever seen. He rarely cries, and if he does, it's because there's a problem that needs fixing. As soon as he's fed, or changed, or loved on, he goes right back to that smiling happy face.


  • He's started cooing. You guys. I cannot even tell you what your heart will do when this starts happening. He literally sounds like he's saying things like "oh no" and "mom" in an adorable, high pitched voice, and I melt. Into a puddle. A useless, dopey, obsessed-with-her-child mom. My Facebook friends are probably ready to murder me, or unfriend me at the very least, for all the baby pictures I post. He is just so darn cute.

  • He is holding his head up and steady like a champ.

  • He can push up on his arms while on his tummy, and look around. He's so close to rolling over, and it makes him so mad that he can't.  (Side note: he actually did roll over, twice, when he was 29 days old. It was astounding. But he hasn't done it again, so maybe it was a fluke? I got in on video though, so there's proof!)




These past three months have seriously been the best in my life, but also the hardest. The first two months were super tough, with getting used to a new relationship with my husband, dealing with the ridiculousness that is a post-baby body, hormones, lack of sleep, you name it.
But this last month, I feel like I've totally got this mom thing on lock down. We've got a good schedule going, and even though I definitely make mistakes, D rolls with it, and the most important thing is that he is happy, healthy, and loved.


I'm seriously the happiest girl in the world.


Now, take in the adorable-ness that is this little guy.





Baby toes. Omg.


And a Happy St. Patrick's day to ya! (insert an Irish brogue here)

We will probably keep up with our tradition of watching Boondock Saints, and being absolutely boring :)

  3. Greetings from Colorado, I'm here via nautipaws whom I friended because of a trip to New Bern. I feel the exact same way and hope to find myself living in NC in a few years. On a side note my daughter is 8 weeks old on Friday and I can't tell you how encouraged I am by your post. These have been the hardest 2 months but I am so hoping to feel better by month #3. Take care!! Maybe I'll run into you downtown one day. stacieb113@yahoo.com
