jumping bean!

We put Levi in his Johnny Jump-up the other night for the first time. He seems to like it! Doesn't quite 'jump' yet, but he sure kicks his legs around! Here is a video I took with my camera...

3 months

Levi turned 3 months old on Thursday! *sigh* Time is just going way too fast. He's such a handsome little guy, always looking around and watching what's going on. I just love him so much!!

I'm planning on taking some [hopefully] nice pictures outside with him, but the last few days have just been horribly hot and stick around here. Either that or it's raining. So as soon as we have a decent day I'm going to give it a try and see if I can get some good ones. But I wanted to get his 3 month info up, and will post the picture later...I have others to share too so it won't be a photo-less post.

At 3 months::

I'm sure he has gained since his 2 month check-up; my guess would be about 14 lbs.

27" long (about)

Size 2 dipes

Moving into 6 month clothing size...he can still fit into some 3 month, but many of his onesies are getting too short

We've gotten a few laughs out of him, but it doesn't happen consistently yet. Just those big grins!

Rolls from his tummy to back. Again, not real consistently yet. Sometimes he does it right away when we put him on his tummy, sometimes he gets frustrated and just starts screaming. I'm sure he will be doing it all the time really soon!

Hands are always in his mouth! Either chewing on his fists or sucking on his fingers. He still likes his binker when he is tired though.

Talking and cooing all the time. I love watching the expressions he makes with his mouth when he's just cute. :)

Drooling a lot more. Sort of wonder if he is teething....seems early, but it's definitely possible.

Naps. What are those again? Still being a stinker when it comes to naps. He sleeps, just not for real long periods of time at once. Guess he is just a cat-napper! Which I guess is fine since he is usually happy and smiley most of the time. Right now he's been sleeping in his pack 'n play for about 20-30 minutes which does not happen often, so we'll see how much longer it lasts!!

Still likes bath time! Washing his hair isn't so bad anymore, he tolerates it!

He has a bit of cradle cap going on. At first I just thought it was some dry patches, but it kept getting worse. At first I just tried to use his comb to get some flakes out, but then I noticed that some hair was coming with it so I stopped that! Now I started using a special shampoo I ordered online. We've only used it a few times and it seems to be going away, so hopefully it will be gone soon!

He does great at holding his head up. Such a strong little guy! The last couple days he's been getting better at keeping his head level when I pull him up from laying down too...he laughs and thinks it's a game! :) Usually he's just pulling his head towards his hands to get them in his mouth!

That's all I can think of for now. It got kind of long! Here are some recent pics!

2 months

A little late, but I am going to try and do monthly updates for Levi from now on. I missed one month, so I'll start with 2 months! His 2 month check-up was actually when he was about 2.5 months, but I'm still going to use those numbers.

26.5 inches long -- 99th percentile for his age!

13 lb 7.5 oz

Smiling and 'talking' like crazy! He's a ham! :)

Loves his pacifier, but is starting to suck on his fists more often

Still swaddling him at night

Sleeping good at night, usually waking only once after sleeping anywhere from 4-6 hours, then going back to sleep after eating

Napping, on the other hand, is hit and miss. He seems to do better at day care, and even then it is only 1 out of 3 days usually. He is more of a cat-napper most of the time, taking 20-60 minute naps here and there instead of one good morning and one good afternoon nap. We have to work on getting him to sleep in his crib or pack 'n play, instead of in mommy's arms. That's normally when he wakes up, when I put him down, little stinker. Anyhoo, moving on!

Still breastfeeding. He has his moments, but does good over-all. He takes the bottle good at day care.

On the subject of day care, he has been doing really well there, too. For the summer she only has 3 or 4 other kids, so he gets plenty of attention.

He just started following me with his eyes when I move around.

Loves bath time until I have to wash his hair...getting better though

His hair has lightened a little bit to more of a dark brown instead of black when he was born, and he has a bald spot on the back now

Tummy time doesn't usually last too long....he's not so much a fan of that yet. He does good with holding his head up though. Lots of people comment on how strong he is for his age.

Just moved into size 2 dipes (after mommy bought a ginormous package of size ones...figures. ha!)

Clothing size 3 months, but not for much longer!

And a few more pics of my cutie, just for good measure!!
