At 3 months, Sam…
…apparently likes to be cozy warm when he sleeps, since he only wakes up once a night with fleece pj’s and an extra blanket, or 3-4 times a night otherwise. (I’m sure glad I figured that out!)
…is still full of smiles and starting to coo
…sleeps the mornings away and is more active and alert in the afternoons and evening.
…weighs 12.8 lbs (on my bathroom scale, so that may not be too exact)
…is apparently the Good Luck Baby for all Missouri sports teams… go Tigers, Cardinals & Chiefs!
…enjoys batting at toys and kicks his legs excitedly while playing with them.
…is a card carrying member of the Ceiling Fan fan club
…falls asleep nuzzled into the crook of my elbow and will sleep contentedly through any amount of noise and commotion unless I dare to put him down.
… Is starting to hold up his head much better, although he still sometimes resembles a bobblehead doll
…has a little flat spot on the back of his head that makes me feel like a terrible mother for not holding him more instead of laying him down (or for not staying home instead of working, where with two other kids the babysitter can’t possibly hold him all day long!), but I know that’s mommy guilt getting the best of me and I think it’s pretty normal and it will round out again as he gets older and can do more than just lay around.
Whew! That got a little deep! Sorry. But hey, I survived the “fourth trimester,” so that’s something. Another milestone is that I’m having an evening out tonight for the first time since he’s been born! Hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy it and not worry too much.
