Jude is 3 months

Our baby boy is three months old today.  Lily and I were perusing her baby book this week and she kept on saying 'Baby Jude' as we flipped through gazing at her baby self.  It's official, our Jude is a Forristall and Kevin and I believe he is definitely a hybrid of both Luke and Lily. 

Jude has stolen our hearts in every which way and we all can't get enough of his smiles, giggles, coos, and that sweet flirting with his eyes he saves for a few select family members (me included).  #praisehands  Here is what our baby boy has been up to this past month.

  • Jude is taking three naps a day.  Two of them are big chunked naps of about two to three hours and one is a shorter 30 to 45 minute nap.  He sleeps in his crib and just upgraded to the larger woombie, which makes this momma sad.  
  • Our baby is a little social butterfly.  He loves to smile and talk to anyone who will listen and it might just be the cutest thing in the entire world.
  • There is a special place in Jude's heart for Luke and Lily.  He lights up whenever one of them comes into his line of vision and talks to him or says 'gooooo', which is pretty much his favorite word in the whole world.
  • Jude has a healthy appetite.  After dropping in percentile at his two month check up, I am sure he has made head way and is back to where he started.  He nurses 5-6 times a day and gets two bottles at night containing a mixture of pumped milk and formula.  Momma can't keep up with him.
  • Bedtime for Jude is somewhere between 7:45-8:15 p.m. and he sleeps until 2:00-3:00 a.m. After a bottle, he heads back to bed until 6:30-7:00 and then he is up for the day.  His nighttime sleep has gotten a whole lot better.
  • The way Jude flirts with his eyebrows makes me swoon.  He is a pro at smiling with his eyes and this is probably my absolute favorite thing he does right now.
  • Bathtime is one of Jude's favorite times of day.  Everyone participates and they love scrubbing Jude down with washcloths.
  • Jude's favorite places to hang out are in our arms and his bouncer chair. He has just taken a liking to his playmate where he smiles at the baby in the mirror.

One day this past month I looked at Jude and my jaw literally dropped.  He morphed from a newborn into a an infant in what seems like overnight.  This season is so fleeting and I am savoring these days, weeks, and months with a sweet babe under our roof.
