Jake is 3 months old today...wow! Time is flying by so quickly now. I'll admit, those first four weeks were brutal and went by sooooo slow. Now, its the weekend before I know it and even more sadly...closer to January when I go back to work. Boo!
Jake is getting so big. He can lay on his little tummy and hold his head up so well now. He looks around like a little turtle! He loves, loves, loves to practice standing. His little legs are like little linebacker legs, so standing is a breeze for this little guy! He babbles alot more now and really puts on a show while laying on his changing pad. That seems to be his happy place. He has recently discovered that he can hold things. Today, he held his little keys in his hands for over an hour--wouldn't even put them down to eat! Its pretty funny watching a baby take down a bottle and rattle keys at the same time.
Jake has started his "Your Baby Can Read" program now. If you haven't heard of it (and i hadn't), its a video/flash card series to teach kiddos to read. You can start them on it as early as 3 months....hence, we have started. I met a girl at church this morning that did it with her little one too. She swears it worked! (She wouldn't have lied..we were at church! ) ha! I'll keep you posted though. I don't expect him to be reading in the next month or anything...but it can't hurt, right?
Not sure what he weighs right now, but I'd guess around 14-15 pounds. He's eating 5 oz bottles and sleeping through the night a couple of times a week. On his off nights, he gets up once and crashes after the bottle. I really can't complain!
Happy 3 month birthday, sweet boy! We love you more and more each day!
