Someone’s Three Months Old Today!

I’ve heard many times to “enjoy these days, because the baby grows so fast.” And I can see that it’s so true. Jarvis is no longer a newborn. He’s now a little person I can interact with. The past three months have been so enjoyable.

Here are a few updates:

  • Weight: ~14lbs 3oz
  • Length: 63cm (25in)
  • Daytime sleep: Three 1-2 hour naps a day
  • Nighttime sleep: 2-3 hours at a time
  • Feeds: Breastfed and bottle-fed (expressed breast milk and formula — still about about 24-25oz/day)
  • Personality: He loves to smile and laugh. He gets cranky when he’s hungry, tired or needs to burp. He also “converses” a lot. We have a lot conversations that involve him responding to me with coos and grunts. It’s quite entertaining.
  • Milestones: Giggles, holds head up, rolled over from tummy to back (it only happened once so he might have just been lucky that time), drooling (teething??)
  • Likes: Daddy’s rapping (watch here), mommy’s singing (The Wheels on the Bus), TV, the car seat mirror, the baby carrier, the crib mobile
  • Dislikes: Tummy time and the swing (he much prefers to be propped up on the couch than to sit in the swing)

Here are my updates:

  • Recovery: Sometimes I still feel a heavy pelvic pressure like my uterus is falling! I think it’s just weak pelvic floor muscles. Other than that, my recovery has been good and uneventful.
  • Exercise: Lots of walks and the Babywearing Workout
  • Diet: I purchased a bunch of Supperworks meals almost 2 months ago, and that provided some healthy and easy meals for a few weeks. Since then, however,¬†my somewhat healthy diet has deteriorated. Now, it’s just all about¬†quick, easy and tasty food, which means takeout, pasta, milk and cookies, peanut butter and jam sandwiches, etc.
  • Sleep: For the most part, I get two-hour blocks of sleep between 12AM-8AM.
  • Mood: Happy. I do have my moments when I feel exhausted and overwhelmed, but this past month has been really fun. Every time baby giggles or smiles (which is pretty often), my heart melts. Many times, I’m doing a middle-of-the-night diaper change; I’m tired and just want to get it over with and get back to bed. I put the baby down on the change table and he looks up at me with his big gummy smile. I love it. My heart skips a beat every time.

Happy 3 months, Jarvis!
