{Crew} Three Months

Stats: Guessing in the upper 13/lower 14 pound range. Crew's next scheduled appointment isn't until his 4 month well-child check up and that isn't until December 16. (Fitting that a year ago ON December 16 we found out we were pregnant with our lil man)!!!
Sizes: I switched Crew to 3-6 and 6 month clothing at 2.5 month . He wears size 2 Kirkland diapers.
Food: Crew is still on a boobie milk only diet. I went back to work last week though so now he gets bottled boobie milk two days a week and boobie milk from the boob the other five days. On his bottle fed days he takes 5 four and a half- five ounce bottles. (We tried 5 four ounce bottles on my first day back and that wasn't quite enough). I pump only on my working days...twice at home (6am and 9/10pm) and three times at work (10am, 2pm, and 6pm). Well I guess that's kind of a lie...obviously I pump a bottle anytime I'm going to be gone and there be a possibility that he'll need one while I'm gone.
Routine: Crew eats on demand during the day (every 3-5 hours) and eats twice (unless you count 6am "morning" then only once during the night. He typically eats his last meal of the day between 9 and 9:30. Crew typically wakes once in the two 'o clock range for me to pop his bop (paci) back in and again to eat in the 3 'o clock range. From 6am on he's constantly waking. Whether he's hungry or not. Sometimes I feed him and sometimes I take him back to bed to snuggle (he falls back to sleep and I lightly doze off). Crew has no set time when he wakes. He's all over the place. Depends on if he's in my arms or in his crib. No set nap times. Just snoozes randomly throughout the day. Definitely can count on a longer nap in the afternoon though!!!
Developmental Milestones: Crew likes to sit in his bumbo seat and watch the Bigs! He is a super smiley baby (big change from last month) and is talking (aka...cooing). Loves to grab/hang on to his blankie and mommy's hair.
Loves: Crew loves sucking on his fists!!! Crew loves his blankie and paci!!! Crew loves his mama!!! Crew loves his Ergo!!! Crew loves watching people!!! Crew loves sleeping in his car seat. And Crew loves smiling!!!
Dislikes: You don't mind the typical dislikes...diaper changes, baths, etc. And you don't mind things your siblings disliked at the same age...being cold and your paci. The one thing you do dislike is sitting in poop. Once you poop...you wanna be changed.

Other Things I Don't Want To Forget:
  • Mommy went back to work on November 4. It was suppose to be a 12 hour flex shift. (Flex meaning first to be canceled. We have to schedule ourselves for 24 hours of flex shifts every 6 weeks). Somehow there was a glitch in the computer system and my flex shift got changed to a scheduled shift. Once my Charge Nurse figured this all out I got sent home at 230pm. Not gonna lie...kinda nice that my first shift back was a short one.
  • You are an easy read. Can definitely tell when you are hungry or tired.
  • You are such an easy baby and your smile is coming easier these days.
  • Forgot to mention in your 1 AND 2 month posts that you have a birthmark on your left upper leg.
  • Whenever you're in the Ergo you instantly fall asleep.
  • "Celebrated" your first Halloween.
  • You were baptized on November 8.
  • You slept in your crib for the first time/night on October 20. Sleep was less than stellar that first night but no different than what you were doing in your rock and play sleeper. 
  • Right after turning 2 months you were in the habit of waking twice a night to eat and an additional 4-5 times for your bop to be popped back in. Mommy was exhausted.
  • On October 21 and 22 you started waking just once a night to eat and THAT WAS IT!!! You ate somewhere in the 3 'o clock time frame.
  • Mommy often gets asked if you're a boy or girl because of all your hair. I wanna say peeps don't you see the BLUE?!!
  • People are more prone to say a baby girl is cute over a baby boy but if your baby boy has lots of hair...then you get told your baby is cute a lot too!
