Three months in and already late with my blog post! Oh well, having two kids has made me late for more than just blogging! Caleb's third month of life was busy. Andrew had a lot going on at work, we enjoyed visiting family in Dayton and celebrating my birthday.
Weight: 14lbs. 4 oz.
Height: (When he wakes up I'll let you know)
Clothing: all 3-6 months with a couple of 0-3 pants--his legs seems a little short
Diapers: fuzzibunz during the day and disposables at night
Cradle Cap: UGH! It showed up and is out in full force....yes, I have tried coconut oil, olive oil, dandruff shampoo and brushing it...nothing works.
Loves: Caleb loves his bouncy seat, swing, bumbo, brother, dogs, ceiling fans, baths, nursing, sleeping...basically everything. He adores his big brother and watches him like a hawk. He is an incredibly easy going and happy child. He smiles whenever anyone looks at him or if he sees something he finds amusing. He loves to listen to books and doesn't mind when he is read to while we are reading to Ben.
Nursing: Caleb eats on demand which is typically every 2 1/2 hours. He has days where he still cluster feeds in the afternoon and late evening but those are starting to fade. He is an incredibly fast eater and nurses in less than five minutes most of the time.
Sleeping: Part of me hoped that our second child would enjoy nighttime sleep more than Ben but as of yet, it is not the case. I will continue to rest in the comfort of knowing that it will happen eventually and now Ben is an awesome sleeper.
Week by week our month went like this:
March 6-12th--Caleb survived a family round of the stomach flu. I felt bad for the little guy as I was sick and Andrew and I experienced our first stomach bug as a family.
March 13-19th--We enjoyed a wonderful evening at my mother-in-law's house as she made me a delicious birthday dinner and invited a few friends over. Andrew made a scrumptious cheesecake. Caleb spent an afternoon away from me as Andrew gave me some "mommy time" and told me to go shopping.
March 20-26th--I spent six days as a single mom while Andrew went to Ithaca for a trial academy. The boys and I managed but it isn't something any of us want to do very often.
March 27-April 6th--Caleb's first Easter egg hung, first Easter celebration, and first car trip to Dayton to visit Dan and Hilary. He did an amazing job in the car and didn't cry hardly at all. He slept through our visit to the Airforce Museum but enjoyed hanging out with his cousin on the floor.
