Griffin {3 months}

Griffin, you are 3 months old! 
The stats:
Weight: according to our scale, 12.5lbs
Height: not sure, I will measure later today!
Diaper: size 1
Clothes: all 3 month clothes but some of the footies are getting a little tight! You are long & skinny!
Eating: You are still nursing! I'm so happy we've made it 3 months with no issues. You are eating every 3 hours during the day; sometimes you nap through your feeding & will go 4 hours. We are down to one feeding in the middle of the night. Not too bad! The few times you've had a bottle this month you've had 6 ounces! I'm only pumping now when you need a bottle & it has made life much easier! You are still taking Prevacid and it works wonders! 
 Sleeping: I am happy to report that you are doing MUCH better at sleeping in your crib! You go to bed between 8-9pm and sleep until about 3-4am. You will nurse for about 20 minutes & then go right back to sleep. I try to put you back in your crib but you usually end up in the Rock 'n Play. Better than our bed, right?! The only big issue right now is the paci. Oy. It is such a love/hate relationship. You are OBSESSED and when you realize it has fallen out in the middle of the night, you freak. I go to the nursery about 4 times a night to play Paci Patrol. It's rather frustrating.  We are slowly but surely getting on a daytime schedule. You usually nap about 2 hours after you wake up.  You are going through the 30 minute nap phase. Literally, like clockwork, you wake up almost exactly 30 minutes after you fall asleep. After your morning nap, the rest of the day is pretty inconsistent. I know we will have a normal nap schedule eventually!
 Right now you are loving...
  • your paci. It's probably your favorite thing. We recently invested in some paci clips and they have made life SO MUCH EASIER. No more falling pacifiers! 
  • your monkey & rabbit lovey. You are starting to hold things & those hands are always busy! You will hold on to your lovies when you ride in the car & when you sleep. We just started letting you sleep with your monkey Angel Dear lovey in your crib. 
  • Standing up! You are getting so much stronger! You love to stand on our laps & check everything out around you. 
  • Being worn in the K'Tan. Your neck is a lot stronger now & I turned you around in the carrier about a week ago! You were skeptical at first but you enjoy it now. You still love to sleep in the carrier when you're facing me! 
  • Your big brother, Grayson. Just this past week you have really started noticing him. He will do something silly & you will just giggle and smile at him. I love it! 
  • Bath time. We just took the mesh net out of your tub & you are just using the big boy infant tub now! You love it & kick the entire time you are in the water. 
  • Playing with the toys on your play mat. You are finally grasping things & you love talking to your "friends" and holding on to the animal toys. 
Right now you are NOT loving...
  • taking naps.
  • the car & the carseat. Good grief, you make driving stressful. You scream 90% of the time we are in the car. 
 Griffin, I can hardly believe that you have been with us for 3 months now. It has gone by so fast! You are such a smiley & happy baby. You are happy almost all the time & people always comment on how sweet you are! I think you will definitely be the laid back child. We have a pretty busy schedule & you are very go-with-the-flow. I'm so thankful for that! 
A few weeks ago you started going to the nursery at church for MOPS and bible study. It was weird to not have you with me, but you did so great! I think you love it because those nice ladies spoil you rotten by holding you for two hours. It's like your dream come true! 

Sweet Griffin, you have added so much happiness and love to our family. I love spending my days with you & watching you change and grow! We have survived the newborn phase & now I feel like the fun is really starting. We love you so much!

Happy 3 months, Griffin!

Charlie is a NIGHTMARE in the car! I don't remember it lasting this long with Ty. Sorta makes me feel better to hear G hates it just as much. Silly boys... Don't they know that's our escape?!
