Baby Max is growing up too fast! He is now 3 1/2 months old and is already testing his independence...well, as much as a 3 1/2 month old baby can. He has become a GREAT night sleeper, sleeping from around 7 pm to 6:30-7 am. On occasion he'll go a full 12 hours without a feeding, but he usually has one night feeding. Sometimes he wakes up fussing, only to be fast asleep again by the time mommy gets up to check on him. I definitely can't complain. I only wish we could get the day naps down, but alas, he has a mind of his own, and cannot be forced to sleep.
Max LOVES his floor gym, is getting better at tummy time, and occasionally will roll over, tummy to back. He has also become interested in grabbing things and being read to. He actually giggled for the first time the other day while doing tummy time, which was AMAZING considering he usually hates it. My favorite time of day is in the morning when he is all smiles and so happy from a full night's rest. We are so grateful Max is in our lives, and while he can be a little stinker for only being 3 months, he brings so much joy and purpose into our lives. Being a parent is challenging, but at the same time, extremely rewarding.
|PS. Max is completely mesmerized by the TV. We even got him to "watch" some of General Conference.|
