Today Cedar is officially 3 months old! He is 16lbs 3oz & 25 1/2" long! He is still my smiliest baby ever, laughs now, tracks objects well with his eyes, reaches out for an object-but doesn't hold onto it for very long, & his head control is great! He is still nursing like a champ & still sleeping through the night. He's awake for most of the day now. He is the most content when I wear him, or when his Sisters are playing with him. He does not like to be alone, but who does? He is just so wonderful!
We don’t have much, in the line of baby gear…232 sq ft of living space isn’t much to go off of, but he needed a chair, so I got a "new to him" boppy chair that is also a high chair that collapses for easy RV storage. He does great in it...has been wanting to sit up for the past month now. He just wants to see what everyone is up to.
We also got him a Lamaze brand "Captain Calamari" pirate toy. Plenty of stuff on there to keep him busy. We are trying new pacifiers...these ones are Tommee Tippee, he seems to prefer these much more over the silicone Soothers or the natural rubber million dollar ones I got him once. He also got some foot rattles for when he likes to play with his feet, an owl rattle, a Sophie SO'PURE natural rubber teething ring, & a new bandana bib. He's drooling up a storm these days. His teeth are still probably months away from cutting through, however. His Sisters were the same way. Drooling at 3mo, 1st teeth at 6mo.
It’s time for our monthly comparison of my #2 & #3 babies:
Cinderella is left, Cedar is right. Cedar is starting to look less like her…but the resemblence is still uncanny!
And now for some pics from the past month:
That moment when he just fell asleep.
We're lovin' those man boobs & he's lovin' his 1st baltic amber necklace from my friend, Ashley.
We're deep into into the 3mo growth spurt around here. Cluster feeding, boobs running on empty, fussy baby, & only wanting to nurse or sleep. Not as many smiles today as usual. And my fuse is growing shorter. But he sure is cute. Even when he picks the wrong hour to work on his tummy time skills. Hoping it will be over in the next day or two. Mommy is so tired.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful Mama!
Growing is hard work when you're a baby. Fortunately, Cedar finds comfort in his Daddy’s strong & capable arms.
What do you mean I can't have more boob???
My perfect Brother holding my perfect Son.
The only thing sexier than a babywearing man, is a babywearing man that smiles for pictures when you ask him to!
Attitude. I wonder where he gets it from?
My 2 favorite boys.
He is trying harder and harder to roll over now.
We are blessed.
I started my #YogaEveryDamnDay practice up again this month. Cedar is enjoying being party to it, once more.
We are thrilled to be back outside again. Cedar hung outside with us all day, while the rest of us gardened.
He loved the fresh air.
Oh hey there handsome. Someone is enjoying tummy time more and more these days. He’s 3 1/2 months old now.
I FINALLY found a size of onesie that fits he & his cloth diaper..........18 months. At the rate he's growing, he's gonna bypass 4 year old Avalon in a couple years, lol!
He still loves his milkies!
He's going to be so mad at me someday for these pics. Butt seriously…this is the only way I can get him to nap for longer than 45 minutes. He’s just my naked little hippie boy.
I mean, really, who doesn’t love a naked baby booty?!
Uncle Bubby's surgery went good on Friday & he got discharged & back home yesterday. We're here visiting & playing Lego Marvel's with him on the PS3, today.
Ohm baby does Yoga.
How I have slept with my Kitty-Onyx, every single night, since I brought him home, as a kitten.
We hold paws, while he sleeps on my head/pillow.
This whole past month can be summed up as "the month he found his hands". No teeth yet, but his hands have been in his mouth pretty consistently for the last 30 days or so. I'm not expecting his 1st tooth til the 6 months mark. That's when both his Sisters got their first teeth. We shall see. In the meantime, he is biting me when he nurses…and that sucks. Not looking forward to him biting me WITH teeth.
On April 17, my “once-an-internet-friend-turned-real-life-friend” met up with me and my family at my Brother’s home. She is a professional photographer, and offered to photograph my family and I together with him. It was just about the greatest gift I could ever receive. Memories. With my Brother.
She lives in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, and you can check out her business page “Little Wolf Photography” HERE on Facebook, if you would like to get in touch with her. She does family photo shoots and lots more!
Goodnight sweet boy, rest well. In the morning, you will awake a bright-eyed & bushy-tailed 4 month old. Where has the time gone? I am so glad I get to fall asleep next to this darling, squishy face of yours, & wake up next to it every morning. I wouldn't dream of having it any other way. ❤❤❤
