1.30.13 - 3 Months


Happy 3 months, Little Mister! Just as I mentioned in previous letters to you, you are growing so fast! As much as I am looking forward to watching you grow, I'd like to push the pause button and really enjoy you being my baby, too.

You have really started to explore this month! You are now able to follow us around with those big blue eyes of yours. When I'm preparing dinner, you will sit in your bouncer and follow my every move. If I stop and ask you what's going on, you give me the biggest grins. You are by far the happiest baby I've never been around. You smile so much! 

We you have been sleeping in your crib all month long and you've been doing so good. You sleep in it during nap time and each night for about 6-8 hours. You still like being swaddled and that's something we need to work on because you are starting to move and roll from to your side. You can't have your blanket for safety reasons so let's hope you do okay without it.

Since we moved to Ohio to Texas, we needed to find you a new pediatrician. In doing so, we learned that you aren't gaining weight like you should. At your 2 month check-up, you were at 25% for your weight and now you are at 19%. You weighed 11 lbs, 14 oz at your appointment so the doctor suggested we put your on a thicken formula. This will not only help with your weight but it's designed for babys with acid reflux. You've been doing pretty good since we've changed your formula, let's hope it shows up on the scale at your 4 months appointment.

I want you to know this now in case it's mentioned later on - you have your Daddy's ears and toes. Sorry, kiddo!! The only thing you have that's Mommy's is my eyes and my round head. Regardless of whose what you got, I think you are handsome and so many others agree!

 This month, we took you to the Austin Zoo. Although you are a little young, you seemed to enjoy spending the afternoon in your stroller, checking things out. We also found a home church and you've gotten to spend time in the nursery with other little ones like you. You meet some people from NH at a couple get togethers and every one just loves you. I don't blame them one bit. You are irresistible.

CJ, you are the brightest part of our lives and we love you so very much!! 

Momma and Daddy      



  1. I can't believe it's been 3 months already! He is growing like a weed and so cute!

  2. Happy 3 months! I'm glad you found a church you like!

  3. Such a cutie pie!! Can't believe he's 3 months already!

    Hey, on the swaddling thing, we switched to a sleep sack when we moved out of the swaddle, and it worked great! J still sleeps in an Aden & Anais sack at nighttime :)
