video taken while Max was asleep in a sling -
this was about a month ago. but so funny I had to share with you all.
Went to the pediatrician yesterday.
here are his current stats:
Weight 10 lbs 11 oz
Height 22 1/2 inches
head circumference 14 3/4 "
you should see his legs!
I should do a before and after photo of his legs. I mean - they are beefing up! SO cute.
She suggested that we stop getting up to feed him in the morning - and just let him tell us when it's time.
We usually set an alarm for 4 hours after the last feed - and get up and he is usually starting to squirm for food.
Last night we set the alarm - and low and behold he wasn't squirming so we let him sleep.
This time he went 5 hours.
It was a Passover miracle.
( ok I know that didn't make sense but everything in our house is either a christmas miracle or a passover miracle....just because it's hilarious to yell that out any time something astounding happens - which is quite often. )
I think our 3 month old is about a similar weight as Katye and Brandon's newborn over at
Took him a while but he no longer fits in his premie pants or newborn onsies. yes - folks - Max is in 3 month old clothing now. And his hair is starting to grow in a little on the top of his head. And he is holding things like his little dog, and any washcloth that happens to be near his hand. He also reaches out to touch my face, and his neck strength is astounding!
he holds his head up and just looks at us and looks and looks while we are squeeling of course with glee. He must know by now that we are nuts.
He eats between 3 and 5 ounces of formula every 3 - 4 hours during the day. And he burps like a sailor. Although I've never actually heard a sailor burp - I have a feeling I'm getting my point across.
the best lately are the big smiles and laughing. I am still trying to get it on video - but every time I grab the camera he just stares at the red light on it. It's killing me. you MUST see this. It's my life goal as of late. To capture these first smiles and laughs on video.
Sunday he had his first temperature - and has been a bit congested. Not fun for parents to see their baby struggle to breathe.
nope - not fun at all. I'm glad though that it took him 3 months to have his first little cold. The temp. is back to normal today and the congestion is much less but plan to lay low and not go to the play groups this week to give the little guy a break.
He's asleep in his swing right now - peaceful little guy. until.....he realizes it's time for lunch!
