you're three months old, ford boy!

My sweet Ford boy! I cannot believe you are three months old! It is amazing to think that we are one fourth of the way through your first year. What joy you have brought us!

I took you for a weight check a couple weeks ago, and you weighed 11 lbs., 7 oz., so you are growing! You are still a tiny little guy, but we are so thankful that you are gaining weight. I am still nursing you, but you are drinking formula, too. While I wish I could only give you breastmilk, the formula seems to be helping you gain weight, so I am thankful for it.

You are a pretty good sleeper. You like to go to sleep around 8-9 p.m., and you sleep (in our room beside our bed), until around 3 a.m. usually. Then you'll nurse and go back to sleep until around 6:30 a.m., nurse again, and sleep until around 8:30 a.m. Thankfully, we've never had a stay-up-all-night party with you! :)

You are wearing 3 months clothes and some NB and some 6 months things, too. You are a long guy, so we usually have to buy for length.

You are your sister were dedicated at FBC on Sunday, Oct. 6. You looked so beautiful in your gown. Your daddy and I were privileged to commit to raise you in a Christian home alongside our church family. More on that Sunday to come...

You are such a happy little guy! You love to smile, be sung to and be talked to. I've never met a more smiley little baby in all my life. You bring such happiness and joy to your mother's heart!

You've still not rolled over yet, but I know you will when you are good and ready to. You've found your hands, and you love to chew on them-- especially when you're hungry. You also love to look at your feet.

I've started reading books to you, and you really seem to enjoy it. You love looking at the colors and pictures on the pages. You also like to watch a little bit of Mickey Mouse with your big sister when your momma needs a little break!

Ford boy, you are so sweet, and you are exactly the baby I prayed for. You are smiley and you love to be held close. You are a big cuddler, and your momma couldn't love it (or you!!) any more. You have already brought such joy and happiness to our home. It is a honor to be your mother. I thank God for you every single day.

Happy three months, my little man. I love you so!
