Shortcake: Three Months Old

Our little man is three months old this week. This month he has really gotten much more aware. He also has found his little hands. He loves putting them in his mouth and will also bat at hanging toys with them. When he is awake and alert, he doesn't really like to be snuggled. Instead he cranes his head and neck around to get a better look at whatever interests him.
He has also started to do this while on the floor and often ends up on his side. He watches his sisters closely, but doesn't always like it when they come over to play with him. (Smart man to be leery, too.) I don't have an official size, but I think he is around 15 pounds. This month he progressed to size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes, which he already fills out. He really hasn't lost much of his newborn hair, but the new hair that is coming in is lots lighter, even blonde and his eyes are seeming to stay a bright blue like Cream's.
His sleep habits don't really have a distinct pattern, but he is a good sleeper and I can't complain. Sometimes he sleeps from 8 at night until about 3 or 4 in the morning and goes back to sleep nicely after eating. At other times he is a bit more restless and requires multiple paci insertions throughout the night or maybe an earlier feeding. And we don't have any real nap schedule at this point. I just put him down when he seems like he needs it.
This month he has also somewhat turned into a momma's boy. (Which just fills my heart up.) He is still a really good baby, really only getting upset when he is over tired and will reward us with smiles, laughs, and coos if the mood is right. But, he can also stare someone down and give a mean eyebrow furrow if the mood isn't.
And for comparison sake, here is Peachy at 3 months:
Look at those cheeks!!
And Cream:


  1. Don't they know they're supposed to grow up a little more slowly? Can't believe 3 months has flown by. He's so cute, Kristi!

    1. Thanks and I agree! It is going soooo fast this time!

  2. Oh wow! I can't believe how fast he's grown and how much he looks like the girls!
