Monthly Update – 3 mos old

Colton is 3 months old!

{This is a couple days late, but better late than never!}

I weighed our sweet boy yesterday and found that he weighed 14.4 lbs!! Gained 2 whole pounds in a month. He’s wearing 3-6 month clothing now, particularly sleepers… I put him in a 6 month sleeper last night (all the 3-6 month sleepers were in the wash… oopps) and surprisingly, the length fit perfectly. Everyone comments on how big he looks for a 3 month old. I tell ya, it’s quite the change from when Addy was his age. Addy, at 4 months, weighed 12.4 lbs. She just was/is so petite. Colton is our big man!

At 3 months old, Colton:

  • Was back to waking up every 3 hrs a night again… I think he has been going through a growth spurt (as evidenced by the 2 lbs he gained this month), but it may be subsiding. Two nights ago he only woke up ONCE (between 7:30pm and 8am) and it was glorious.
  • Still eats every 3 hours or so during the day, goes longer in between feedings at night.
  • Enjoys a good bath and a warm towel.

  • Laughs and laughs when you tickle/nibble him on the cheeks and neck. It’s a fun belly laugh, too.

  • Gnaws on his hand like he’s a starving man. He doesn’t suck a thumb or anything, he just prefers to chew on his fist. Enjoys his paci, too.

{Red knuckles from all the chewing}

  • Enjoys quality time with Daddy.

  • Still not too fond of tummy time, but it’s getting better.

{Adelyn provides encouragement for her brother.}

  • Likes to sit in his bumbo seat, so he’s getting a good neck work out that way.

  • Enjoys our evening walks. Now that the temperatures are starting to cool off slightly, they are much more pleasant!

  • And of course, still loves his sissy!

  • And just for fun, some of this nicknames include: Bub, Bubba, Buster, Buster Brown, Bubba bear, Baby, Handsome, Sweet boy, Co-ton, Toltec (from Addy)

Adelyn is 2 years, 3.5 months old and Colton is 3 months, 2 days old.
