So I have a ton of things to update everyone on this week, but I am exhausted so for now you get a few things and lots of pictures. I know you only care about the pictures anyway!! I will try very hard to add more updates later this week.
It is hard to believe Graham is 3 months old! I took some pictures today and will probably do a few more this week. I really want some of me with him, but I always look tired and dirty. What is the point of dressing up when you are spit up on all day. Plus there is little time for showers anymore. I read about the 90 minute sleep solution on a message board last week and decided to give it a try. I didn’t read the book so I don’t really know much about it, but from what I gather babies have 90 minute wake cycles…. sorry, like I said I know very little. All I know is people said to get your baby taking a nap every 90 minutes. Well, it works! At least for us. I can tell as we approach the 90 minute mark he is getting tired so instead of waiting for him to have a break down or go to sleep on his own (which has never happened) I take him to the swing. I sometimes have to go in a couple times to put the pacifier back, but he always falls asleep. Usually just for an hour, but that’s okay. At least he is napping. I will write more later this week on our new sleep issues and our attempt to move out of the swing and into the crib.
For now, a few fun facts for the week. Graham is now all smiles and loves looking at people and making faces at them. This week he discovered he can make lots of cute baby noises (other than crying which is actually sometimes cute/funny….sometimes). He talks more and more each day and I just love hearing his little voice. Today he figured out how to get his thumb in his mouth, but he still prefers his pacifier. He tries to put his whole fist in his mouth and makes lots of crazy sucking noises because he hasn’t really mastered it yet. More on that later too….. However, the cutest thing he does now is hold up his legs when you change him. Too cute. He HATES tummy time and refuses to do it. If we put him on one of our chests and lay down on a slight incline he is all about lifting his head and looking around, but if you put him on the ground he just cries and won’t even try to lift his head. He just lays there and won’t move a muscle. Stubborn little guy and I am not sure what we are going to do because he needs to be working on pushing up!
Okay, here are the pictures. I have lots more on flickr so make sure to check out his 3 month album HERE.
