Thomas - Three Months

Where do I even begin on how wonderful this baby is?  I remember back when we were discussing the possibility of having a third child and how the only thing I could come up with to say was that it really felt to me that someone was still missing.  There was a key part of our family that hadn't arrived yet.

He's here now.  And he's a perfect fit. 

At 3 months old:
  • Thomas has that trademark bald(ish) head that all my babies have sported.  Don't worry son, the hair will come later.
  • Sleeps through the night most of the time.  He's taken to waking up to eat the last couple nights, but in general he is a wonderful sleeper.  Usually goes down for the night around 10:00 and sleeps until 8:00.  Can't get much better than that.
  • Ticklish!  Get him in the right mood and tickle the right spot and you'll get this:

  • Loves to observe.  Sometimes he just wants to be put down on the floor so he can watch his brothers cause a ruckus. 
  • Still a pretty good eater, but has recently started to reject taking a bottle more often.  I'm really hoping this doesn't lead to a full on regression and refusal to eat from the bottle because that could spell big trouble for us.  I love that he's so into nursing, but I need him to be bottle friendly too.
  • His hemangioma has intensified in color and even become more raised up from the surface of his arm recently. 
  • He hates, hates, hates having Tummy Time.
  • Usually takes a little cat nap in the morning, a big long snooze in the early afternoon, and then a teeny catnap again in the late afternoon/early evening.  Not really on a tight schedule yet, per say, but this is definitely his pattern. 
  • Wearing all 3-6 month clothing now.  Not sure on his weight.
  • Eyes still have a bluish tint.  Wondering if they'll turn dark soon or if they're going to stay a blue-gray.  Maybe he'll end up with Daddy's eyes?
  • We see this face a lot:

Thomas, you are so much fun.  I love to snuggle with you, talk to you, smell your head, and watch you sleep.  Stay a baby for me for a while, ok?  Love you, sweet pea.
