3 months already?!

So I feel like I JUST posted the "2 month" entry and here I am writing about my 3 month old big boy. Where does the time go? Max's personality is really starting to emerge. He coos and talks, smiles, laughs, listens when I read him books and really likes to look at pictures of himself ! He also plays in his little bath tub by kicking and splashing (see video below).

The biggest transition we've made this month is moving him into his nursery at night. I had been putting it off, but I really couldn't justify him sleeping at my bedside anymore. Especially because he seemed to sense my proximity and decided he wanted to go back to "snacking" throughout the night as though he was a newborn. Sorry buddy...I'm not an 24-hour diner! Momma needs to get some rest. So I nervously put him in his crib at 7:30 the first night...and guess what?! Not a peep. I kept checking on him throughout the night but he was sound asleep in his crib. Such a big boy! It has been a great thing for all of us :)

Mother's Day

My first Mother's Day! I feel so lucky to be a Momma. It's such an incredible blessing and truly the best "title" I've ever worn. I'm proud to share it with the amazing women in my life - my Mom and Grama...among many others. So thank you, Max, for making me a Mommy.

Billy let me sleep in while he and Max made me breakfast. There's nothing better than eating pancakes in bed with my baby, my husband and my best dog. They all give me so much love.

Max gave me a ring that has his name and birthday engraved on it. Isn't my son so thoughtful?! :) You can kind of see it in the picture below. (Max loves to chew on my fingers as you can also tell from the pic...)

We spent the rest of the morning at our community garden planting seeds - we're growing arugula, green onion, spinach, tomatoes and chives. We'll see how this gardening thing goes...

Max loves being carried in his Moby wrap.

Later that afternoon the entire family went up to Loose Park for a picnic. The weather was a bit dreary but we had a great time.

March for Babies

Max was the youngest member of the "Loves Lila" team this year. Such a great cause and a wonderful way to honor the memory of our niece Lila. We're so thankful for all the healthy and happy babies that are in our lives.
