Everett is 3 Months!

Our squishy boy is growing and growing! He is growing so fast and we have even had to move up in size of clothes and diapers!
 This isn't the cutest picture of him, but you can see his hair. Normally it is a curly fluff but he has these patches of hair around his head, especially a strip right down the middle. He definitely has more hair than James did, but he still looks like a balding old man on top :)
 He barely fit into the onesie, which is 0-3 month size. He looked so uncomfortable once I put it on. He had to wear it more as a shirt because the buttons to snap it barely came to the top of his diaper!
 His eyes keep getting bluer and bluer! I don't know how we ended up with two blue eyed children with Anthony's dark Italian coloring, but we love it.
We finally got around to having his 2 month checkup, about a month late, so we were able to get his stats. At 3 months he is 12.4 lbs (11th percentile) and 23.5 inches long (16th percentile). I had no idea he was on the lower end of the growth chart! He looks so plump and juicy and feels so big to us :)

He is smiling and making cooing noises all of the time now. When he gets really excited, he makes this high pitched squealing sounds that are so loud! During the day when I am nursing him, he often will pull off just to look up at me and smile and laugh. Once he isn't that hungry, he will go back and forth every few seconds: nurse/come off and smile/nurse/come off and smile, like he can't decide which is more fun, eating or playing. He loooooves to be held. Especially for the week after getting his shots, I don't know if he ever got put down. With my mom here, one of us was always holding him. His favorite position to be in is sitting on our knee, bouncing and facing out so that he can see everything going on.

Sleep is about the same, 90% of the time he gets up around 2am to nurse and then right back to sleep until around 6 or 7am. He is still in his little bassinet, but our plan is to transition him to the crib after the holidays once we transition James to a big boy bed (pray for us, please!!). These past 3 months have just flown by, I can't wait to keep watching him grow :)
