3-month check-up and updates

First of all, I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!!


EJ had his 3-month appointment on Monday and he did great. He now weighs 11 lbs 9 oz (20%) and is 23.5 inches long (40%). He was in the 10th and 20th percentiles last month so he's starting to catch up to the averages for his age (slowly but surely). He also got two more vaccines. The first one was fine, but he was most unhappy with his second. Luckily I have learned my lesson from last month and I had his bottle ready to go and that calmed him down almost immediately. He loves to be naked so he enjoyed most of the appointment when he was just in his diaper while the doctor checked him over.

He's doing great sleeping. He goes for about 7 hours now, but sometimes those hours start at 8pm so I still get up around 3am to feed him. But luckily he eats and then goes right back to sleep until 8-9am. I really am getting a good night's sleep most nights these days. And he's usually good about staying in bed for a little bit so I have time to shower/brush my teeth/get dressed before we start our day. Although, there are the random days where it's lunchtime and I am still in my PJ's. LOL.

I guess that's it for now. Thanks for checking in :)

He is such a precious baby boy! He is growing at just the right pace.

Of course, he's cute as always. No need to feel left out. I talk about you and EJ so much, Mike just knows your name :) I always show him EJs pictures, and he still asks "who's that" duh!
