3 months Old

My little chunkamonk is three months old! It's weird because on one hand I feel like he's just always been here, and on the other, I can't believe he's three months old. :) He currently weighs 13.8 pounds, and is blowing through 5 ounce bottles like a champ these days. There were definitely a lot of fun developments this month. He has continued to be a chatter box, but he's added laughter to the mix as well. At first it was just in response to tickles, but we're now starting to see him laugh at things that he thinks are funny too. He's so much fun right now! His neck strength is great and he no longer needs help to hold his head up. Sitting in the Bumbo has been a regular activity over the last couple weeks. He pretty much only wants to sit up now. Apparently laying down is for newborns and he's moved past that. ;) lol. Just this week, he has started to lock his legs to put weight on them. It's only for a few moments at a time but he's doing it! :)

We're slowly working toward a day time schedule, but I've accepted the fact that Elias is constantly changing and growing so his wake time and food intake are still shifting and that's ok. His nights are consistent and honestly that's more important to me than the day time. He's going down for the night at 9pm, waking up at about 6am for a bottle, and then back to sleep till 8 or 9am. It's so nice! :) 

So those are all the positives. The only down side to life right now is that he has started the process of teething. Boo. He's definitely had a few days of misery where he's needed some extra lovin. So we'll see when those puppies come in! I think that's all for now. Here are a few pictures of Elias' third month of life! :)

Below is a super casual video update on how I'm liking cloth diapering so far. Experienced cloth diapering mommas, please feel free to offer suggestions for me! :)
