Three months old

Owen turned 3 months old yesterday! Math has never been my strength, but that's 1/4 of a whole year! He is such a sweet little guy and is a blessing to our family. His precious little smile is sure to melt your heart. He isn't laughing yet, but we can't wait to hear it! He also coos and tells us "stories" if we will listen long enough. He still has very little hair and his eyes are still blue! He just recently got eyelashes! His next check up is late Feb but I'm dying to know how much he weighs!! He still wears a few 0-3 month size outfits but has also graduated to some 3 month sizes.

Tummy time is certainly not his favorite time of day but he does usually enjoy bath time. He loves to be held and snuggled! We swaddle him tightly at night and nap time. He doesn't really sleep much at all during the day, which makes it tricky to get ANYthing done around the house. He still wakes up 3 times on average during the night. I suspect he is starting to teeth with the tiny white bumps on his bottom gum. He has also been extra fussy and has had a significant decrease in appetite. We hope to move him to his room very soon. He is getting to long for the baby papasan chair he sleeps in and wakes up when Roxie makes noise.

We experienced our first bout of sibling rivalry the other day. As usual, Owen was screaming at me while I was in the shower (I told you he likes to be held). I asked Emma to talk to him for a few minutes. All of a sudden, he started to yell even louder. I peeked out to find that Emma had hit him with a small toy plastic rolling pin. He had a small scratch on his head that was gone by bedtime and Emma now knows not to hit her brother!

All of his photos make him look like a happy boy, but make no mistake, his lungs get lots of exercise ;)
