Liam is 3 Months Old!

We've been a little MIA around the blog lately, but have a ton of posts that need to be written! So I'll begin with Liam's three month post!

Our little Liam Babe turned three months old on the ninth!

He is still a peanut weighing in at right around 10 pounds, but is heavier than his big sister was at 3 months! He is 21.5 inches long! We are still having a hard time finding clothes that fit right, but his wardrobe is growing! Dressing a boy is as much fun as dressing a girl! There are so many sweet boy outfits! Newsboy hats are my current obsession!

This month we saw a lot of precious smiles from our Bubba Boy! All I have to do is say "Hello, sweet boy!" and he gets a big grin on his face! He melts me every. single. time. A few weeks ago, he was nursing and all of a sudden he pulled off and looked up at me with the sweetest look on his face! It brought tears to my eyes as he laughed and talked for a few minutes before starting to eat again!

He also found his hands! One night, he was sitting in his bouncy seat while we were getting dinner ready and I happened to look over and see him staring intently at his little fist as he moved it all around!

He has also started grabbing things and loves the playmat we bought with a gift card from a sweet church friend!

This month, he helped Mama celebrate her birthday, went to the apple orchard and took another trip back to Maryland/Pennsylvania. Our baby boy made the cutest sheep when he dressed up for his first Halloween!

He still doesn't like his car seat when he's awake, but thankfully he falls asleep in it pretty quickly after fussing a little! He does like bathtime! A big thank you to Pop Pop for suggesting we try the swing with him. Londyn Grace didn't really like it so I just never brought it down from the attic after he was born, but we gave it a go and he enjoys swinging in it and watching the mobile on it.

We spent A LOT of time nursing this month and at times I was so defeated. I would just sit and look at the mess around me while he ate constantly until I finally called in reinforcements. Pop Pop and Mimi came to the rescue and helped me get caught up of laundry and cleaning. I've been doing better since then! Being able to nurse is such a privilege, but it can be exhausting and leave little time for much else! He still nurses every two hours during the day and cluster feeds a ton, but is sleeping so well at night, usually from 11 until around 4 or 5 in the morning before waking to eat again, so I can't complain much! He decided that he didn't like the Solly wrap this month. I'm hoping he'll change his mind because it sure makes it easier to get things done!

His big sister is still his biggest fan! She loves him so much. You'll often find her laying on his playmat with him or helping me with his diaper changes!

He is such a blessing to our family! We can't wait to see what the next month brings for our sweet boy!
