3 months with our little guy!

Happy 3 months to our sweet boy!

Weight: 16 pounds 

Milestones
He found out how much fun it is to suck on his little fists this month. Anything and everything that he can grab goes directly into his mouth now (sister's hair included)!

This month we also got to hear a lot more of this sweet little voice talking, cooing, giggling and all sorts of adorableness! This morning he started laughing about the water splashing him in the bath and he giggled for a good 20 seconds straight. I love that he is so happy!

We also gave the bumbo seat a try this month. His chunky thighs barely fit in the seat but even squished in there, he loved the view! Ironically enough, big sister fits in there better than he does!

Clothing/Diaper Size
Size 3 diapers already! Big sister only ever made it to size 4's haha! He is catching up quickly. He is also officially in 6 month clothes. 16 pounds is impressive for a 3 month old!

Health Update:
The day before Thanksgiving, we got a call from the Urologist that he saw something on the ultrasound and wanted to do a VCUG. This procedure was really awful to watch our sweet boy go through as they had to put a catheter in and have him on the X-ray table for about 20 minutes.

For you mamas with babies/kids who have to go through things like this on a daily basis, my heart goes out to you. I am so thankful for a good report from the X-ray which was negative for reflux or blockages. His next appointment is in February, and they will do another ultrasound just to see how his kidney has changed since birth. Thank you to all of you who have consistently prayed for this little guy from 20 weeks on! He is most definitely fearfully and wonderfully made!

Memories
We took our first vacation as a family of 4 to visit the Smokey Mountains! It was a great trip and even warm enough to do a little hiking!

Family
Our boy still loves his daddy the most and gives him the most smiles and giggles. He also falls asleep so much better when he is in dad's arms! I have been tempted to call Jimmy home in the middle of a work day just to help me get him to sleep!

Big sister is still in love with her brother and makes sure that everyone we encounter knows that he belongs to her. She emphatically tells the cashier at every store "he's my brother". I hope she is always that excited to have him as her little brother!

We are so happy to be celebrating the miraculous birth of our Savior with our sweet boy who is the answer to so many prayers! We are so thankful for him and are looking forward to making some great Christmas memories the next few weeks!
