today i am…

Holy Camoly!!! Today our little Jay Bird is spreading his wings to reach 3 months! Man o’ man does time fly… People keep telling us to enjoy it because they grow up so fast; however, at this rate I am worried that if I blink for too long I will open my eyes to find a teenager!

Some things of note around the Perreault Household at three months:

*He is still growing like a bad weed- last night he weighed in at 13lbs 2oz and is about 24 inches long (at least that is my best attempt at measuring this little wiggly fella).

*Jay is sleeping anywhere from 8 to 10 hours at night right now; last night we put him down to bed at 9pm and he woke up a little before 7am. We are still going through the nightly routine; however he has a bath now instead of the shower.

*He has really started to notice his hands. He kind of holds them up in front of his face and examines them and then he tries to eat them- it is funny to watch.

*Just within the last week he has started to do this funny thing with his lip, he sucks on it and moves his tongue around (sorry a video would probably explain this better but he won’t cooperate and let me take one).

*He really truly smiles and recognizes Mommy and Daddy. He will look right at us and give you the biggest smile ever- melts my heart.

* He has started to pull his head up on his own- while he is on his back he pulls his head up like he is doing a crunch or trying to sit up. He tries so hard sometimes that his little face turns red, bless his heart.

*He can really hold his head up on his own. While you are holding him he holds it up and looks all around the place. I love watching him take everything in.

*He can’t quite laugh just yet, although he is trying very hard to and I don’t think that it will be long before he can.

*He rolls onto his right side frequently, but he can’t go all the way over yet. This is probably since he still doesn’t like tummy time very much.

*He has started to notice himself in the mirror. If you stand there with him he will smile and “talk” to himself.

Likes:

*He still loves to be outside. The other evening we had a picnic in our yard when Jamie got home from work because Jay was content to be on the blanket and therefore I could eat with two hands.

*He really loves his blue and brown play mat that Aunt Renee sent him. If Mommy would let him he would nap there all day long.

*He still loves the carrier, Mommy and Jay walk almost every morning and he stays awake for most of the walk looking around at things.

*Blowing bubbles- he constantly has bubbles dribbling out of his mouth.

*Looking at books- he loves to look at the pictures and colors of the books that we show him.

*Story time at night- every night while he is getting his nighttime feeding he gets two or three stories read to him by Mommy. His favorites are Guess How Much I Love You, Bedtime Kiss for Little Fish, and I Love you Through and Through.

*His morning cuddle with Mommy- every morning after he eats we generally snuggle back under the covers and doze in and out for another hour or so. This is one of Mommy’s likes too :-)

Dislikes:

*Napping- he fights daily when Jamie and I try to put him down for a nap, he would rather hang out and take in the world around him than nap.

*The Car- he still hates it (although he doesn’t always scream the whole time we are in the car anymore and I haven’t had to pull over lately) we are hoping that this will just get better with time.

  1. He is too precious. He is starting to look so much like you- especially in that laughing picture. I’m glad to hear he is sleeping so well at night. Ya’ll are lucky!
