Eli, you are three months old today!
This month has been the best so far! You are doing much better with tummy time and we have even started sitting you in your Bebe Pod. Last night you rolled from belly to back for the first time and you did it TWICE! You also started laughing this month and I find myself doing everything I can to pull that belly laugh out of you. I absolutely LOVE that sound!
You are currently wearing 3-6 month clothes and are still in size two diapers, but only because I am desperately trying to finish off the size two diapers we have left. You should definitely be in size threes and I don't know how much longer I can squeeze your fat, little tummy in these size twos!
You have become so much more aware of your surroundings and it is getting kind of hard to nurse you. You are constantly rubbernecking and want to look around to see what is going on. You are still nursing exclusively and still sleeping through the night. The other night you went 12 hours for the first time ever! I was thrilled to be able to sleep in until almost 8 AM! You typically feed when you wake up (average is around 7 AM) and sometimes you can go 4 hours until your next feed. Every other feed during the day is typically three hours.
This past month we took you to Day Out with Thomas, leaf peeping in New Hampshire and the pumpkin patch. You did well at all three and slept most of the time.
You are such a good baby and your Daddy even commented the other day how you seem to be the most happy and content out of all three of our babies. We hope you continue that! You are such a joy to be around and we are anxious to see what you will do in the next month. We anticipate you will start rolling from back to belly and we are a little scared. I don't think we are quite ready for you to be mobile yet!
Jacob and Grace still love you to pieces and Grace tends to dote on you more than Jacob. She mimics us a lot and will talk to you in a sing song baby voice saying, "Hi wittle, wittle, wittle, wittle boy." It cracks us up! They both love to hold you and let us know when "Baby Eli sad". Grace tries to give you a bink and Jacob will lean his head on yours and say, "Awwwww".
Unfortunately, it is hard to get a picture of the three of you together. Usually nobody is looking or smiling. Kind of like this:
I hope you will all grow up close and stay that way when you are older and have kids of your own. Uncle Josh and Auntie "Ria", as Grace calls her, are coming over tonight to visit you. I hope someday you can look back at this blog and see how much you were loved by so many people.
We love you, Eli!
