Dear Connor

Happy Three Month Birthday!  Time is just flying by and I can’t believe we are already already a fourth of the way through your first year.  Slow down buddy!

This was a busy and hard month — Daddy was BUSY at work and was gone for about half the time.  Nana and Papa came to visit for a long weekend and then we spent a week or so at Grandma and Grandpa’s house too. Uncle Alex and Caitlin even visited for a few days.  We missed Daddy a lot but tried to Skype frequently so he didn’t miss all of your growing and changing.  At this age I can still take tons of pictures of you without you complaining.

You had several good firsts this month:  Your first nap in your crib.  It was almost an hour — good job buddy!  You also had your first real bath in the laundry room sink.  It was okay until I started washing all the crusties off your head, that part you didn’t like so much.  You had your first visit to the Zoo.  Your favorite football team, the Seattle Seahawks won their very first Super Bowl!  And, earlier this week you slept for SIX straight hours — it was glorious!  What an exciting month!

Growing isn’t a problem for you — you are turning into quite the little chunk!  I bet you are over 14 pounds by now and your 3 month clothes are getting snug.  You are in size two diapers.  You are still mostly bald with a little strip of brown hair by the nape of your neck.  It is a “look” that is for sure.  I think your eyes are going to be brown but somedays they still look like they just might turn blue.  We will have to wait and see.  You are starting to watch things and pay attention to your surroundings.  You *almost* laughed a week or so ago — I called Daddy at work and put him on speakerphone so he could hear it but then you got shy.  So close though, so we are expecting to hear a giggle out of you pretty soon mister!

Breastfeeding is going really well.  You only like to eat on one side at each feeding and usually eat between 7 and 10 minutes per feeding.  You usually “go to bed” sometime between 10:30 and midnight, and most nights we only have to wake up one time to eat and then you go back to sleep until morning.  That is pretty good!  You spit up a lot but I don’t think you have reflux.  Just like your sister, you have an umbilical hernia but it is starting to get better all on it’s own.  (Hopefully no surger for you…)

Your sister is still enamored with you and spends lots of time kissing you and trying to make you smile.  You seem to think she is very interesting although at times she gets sort of close and that scares you a bit.  I can’t wait until you can interact with her a bit more.

You are such a wonderful addition to our family and it already feels like you have just always been here.  You are a bundle of cuteness and for the most part you are super chill and willing to just go with the flow.  It will be nice when we can have a bit more of a routine but I will just let you take the lead.  We will get there soon enough.  I  have noticed that I feel so much more relaxed this time around in terms of parenting a baby so that is good.  I am not as anxious and feel like a good handle on the “baby stuff.”  Managing both of you together is a whole ‘nother story though…. just know that I love you bunches even on the hard days.

You are such a joy to me and I feel so lucky to be your mama.  We love you mister man!

Happy Three Month Birthday Connor!

XOXO,

Mommy
