3 Months & Too Big!



Wowza~3 months has flown by!! In his first 3 months Danen has already learned so much! He loves to stand and can do it by himself leaned up against something; he is also practicing sitting with support from pillows, the couch, or his bumbo type chair (different kind with straps). He can now grab the fish on his play mat and sometimes hits the music button. He has tried out his door jumper, and his stationary jumper also. He is loving his swing less, and being in things he can move in and grab more. He is so smiley and generally pretty happy~we really lucked out and love him so much! He loves interacting with people, especially kids and other babies. He usually rewards someone talking to him with a goofy grin and bashful flirty eyes. He sleeps pretty good at night and is starting to take better day naps (usually 3). Last night was his first night in his crib & he did great! I am pretty sad to give up the bassinet sleeping though-my dad made an amazing bassinet! He loves the bath and being outside. He has been to his first football game, traveled to watch another football game (to see uncle Cameron play in Green River). He has gone to Island park, volleyball games, and to work out with mom, dad, and Grandma. He is getting so big so fast! He is still kinda little and in 0-3 months clothes. He was a trooper for his shots, but I am not looking forward to getting his new shots on my birthday next week....so sad! He has gotten his first cold~heartbreaking the first night when he would freak out when the mucus ran down his throat. I had to hold him until he conked out. He loves his bath, any mirrors, and also his crib mobile. He also loves his hands and is drooling like crazy, but I don't think he is getting teeth yet. He is also eating cereal now after a couple failed attempts. My mom and I tried for a couple days with no progress, however, when I took her home there was a minor milk mishap and what I had pumped got spilled. I had to go buy formula, milk, and a little baby food....we mixed it and he gobbled it up! I didn't really want him to have formula or baby food yet, I also didn't want to start him on fruit first-but sometimes plans change, and I have to say this was a blessing in disguise. I was pretty worried he wouldn't eat it and would go hungry-but it went great. I would like to say that it helps him sleep longer at night, but we haven't gotten that far yet. His room is almost all ready to go...now I just need to finish a few things to get it up on the walls! We are so grateful for him and love him so much! I am loving being home, and stay too busy with working one day a week @ Farm Bureau and photography-which is going like crazy. We love our little life that is consumed with our amazing addition.
Family love to all our friends!
