Baby J - 3 Months Old!

Time is simply flying around here - baby J is 3 months old!

He is the world's happiest baby.  Unless you are taking two seconds too long to fill up his mega-bottle.  ;)

I don't know his official weight, but I am thinking he is at least 16 pounds or more.  His two favorite things: drinking his bottle and watching/smiling at his big brother.  He is such a cutie and we can't get enough of him!

I love to watch him wake up in the morning - those first smiles are like, oh there you are!!  I have missed seeing you so much!  I am so happy to see you!  

Have I mentioned that he is a happy, smiley baby?

Other new things: cooing, babbling more, giggling, putting his hands in his mouth and a little bit of batting at his toys.  He is wearing size 6 month clothing and those will probably last for another week.  ;)

We are so blessed to have him in our lives.  What an amazing gift!

We have a three year old in the house!

Mountain of chocolate cake + Daniel Tiger sweater + dinosaur sticker on forehead = toddler randomness!

I can hardly believe it.  M's music teacher sang "Happy Birthday" to him at music class, and I got all teary-eyed.

M is a sweet, kind and wonderful little boy.  He is so inquisitive about his world and frequently asks us, "what are you talkin' about, Mommy Daddy?"
Giddy to be playing with his new blocks from Grammie D and Granddad
He is the sweetest big brother and twice this week he has said to me: "I'm not sick anymore, so I can give baby J a kiss now!"

Some favorites: driving trucks, playing with Daddy, playing air guitar and going to Church (where there are guitars).

Every time someone would wish him "Happy Birthday" he responded with a cheerful "and Happy Birthday TO YOU!" right back.  Silly goose!

We are so very blessed to have him in our lives.
