3 Months

Yesterday was James' 3 month birthday! Of course, if you read yesterday's post, you know that I didn't really feel like writing about it :)

Here is his car seat picture. I was more zoomed out in his recent picture, so it is hard to tell sizes, but if you look at the insert in his carrier you will see that he fills it out much more. Look at his head! There is no space at the top anymore. This kid keeps getting bigger, but doesn't really look all that chunky to me. I think he is going to be a lanky kid like his dad!
Today he has actually been a lot less fussy and had much more happy time than usual. I'm not sure why, but we did start giving him an extra ounce at each feeding today, so maybe he is getting more full and satisfied? The last time we increased the amount he got in his bottles, he would just spit up more, but today seems like he was ready for more food :) I was even able to get some happy shots of him:

I was able to get so many happy pictures of him by making farting noises! Such a boy :)

In case any of you were wondering (which none of you probably were :) we have moved from nursing to giving him bottles of breast milk that I pump throughout the day. It takes a lot of time and effort, but it is light years better than our struggles with breastfeeding! We have been doing that for over 2 weeks now and are still going strong.

Things he loves at 3 months: ceiling fans, farting noises, someone on the floor playing with him (he doesn't like to play alone), playing on his tummy, music, getting his diaper changed, playing in his bouncy seat, sleeping in his swing, being swaddled, his pacifier, getting fed :)

Things he hates at 3 months: being in his car seat, when no one is paying attention to him, spitting up, having to wait AT ALL for his bottle, feeling tired (he literally will turn the switch from one moment to the next of being happy to being beyond fussy as soon as he gets tired), taking a bath. He is getting slightly better about his bath. If I do it after he has eaten, he will give weak little cries of protest instead of full on screaming.
