Oh dear, blog, I’ve missed you! It’s been a whirlwind past month (wow, does the time fly) with lots of out-of-town visitors and out-of-town visiting as my maternity leave continues and I continue to maximize my time off.
Some stats on our favorite little man:
Age: 3 months, 10 days
Weight: Over 15 pounds
Diapers: Size 2
Clothes: Outgrew 3-month before he even wore all his outfits; it’s all 6-month now
Hair: Starting to thin
Eyes: Still blue!
Swaddle: One-armed, since he could roll over any day, but still needs some arm-taming
Sleep: 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. with usually two feedings during that time (one if it’s a good night)
Smiles: Lots, on visual cues in addition to auditory cues
Laughs: No real ones yet
Coos: More and more (love this)
Nursing: Going great, eating 6-7 times a day
Pumping: Goal is 10 ounces a day (usually pumped after middle-of-the-night feeding because I’m crazy)
Tummy Time: Getting better at it, but still not liking it
Essential item: Mamaroo – for naps and hanging out when we need to put him down during the day
Yay 10-second increments of serious head-holding-up!
Since my last update, Corban has…
…worn that cute swim outfit I bought him
…and liked it.
…and gone swimming in it.
…been to the beach.
…watched a Florida sunset (or at least has been present for one).
…met lots of new family and friends.
(Great-grandparents Nanie and Pops)
(Great Aunt Kathy and Great Uncle Jim)
(Friends Jay and Leslie)
…cheered for his parents’ alma mater during a very sad exhibit of March Madness.
…and celebrated his first St. Patrick’s Day with a festive outfit and a smile.
We were blessed with one laid back little guy. He just loves to be talked to, smiled at, fed when he’s hungry and given a pacifier when he’s sleepy. I’m content just to smell his silky smooth hair and rub his velvety skin, and my goal is to take advantage of every opportunity to do so. This means some days I don’t get a whole lot done, but I’m OK with that for now.
