3 Months Old

These months sure are going by quickly!

Hunter with Tigger at 3 months old

My little man

Hunter loves to put his little fists up by his face.  Sometimes he puts them up in front of his eyes and looks them all over.  He looks like he’s ready for a fight :-)

We just got this exersaucer for Hunter a few days ago.  He wants to be held all the time so I thought maybe he needed something new and fun to play with.  Plus he can see what’s going on around the room better than when he’s laying on the floor in his boppy.  He really likes the exersaucer if someone is right there playing with him… or by himself but only for a few minutes and then he starts screeching for someone to come pay attention to him.  It makes it a little hard to get anything done, but I know it’s only a phase.

His little feet don’t quite touch the floor yet.  Such cute little piggies.

Isn’t he the cutest baby boy ever?

I love those cheeks!!  They get lots of kisses!!

He’s just so cute!  From every angle.

Hunter has recently started blowing bubbles.

Hailey (5 years) and Hunter (3 months).  I sure do love these two!!!!

Some of the things Hunter has started doing in the last month:

Hunter has added some new sounds- he says “ma” and “ba.”  Sometimes it sounds like he is saying mama and it’s so cute.  He loves to say “Oooooooo”  “Ewwwwwww” “Awwwwww.”  He has little conversations with us and it is just the cutest thing.

Hunter has always laughed in his sleep (I wonder what he is dreaming about!) but we finally got to hear his laugh when he’s awake.  The first time it happened was when Hailey said something to him and he did just a little giggle.  About a week later Grandma and Pa were here and we were all laughing at something and Hunter laughed too.  Just this week we were at the doctor and when the doctor came in the room Hunter looked at him and started laughing really hard.  It was so cute and so funny!!  The doctor was laughing too and Hunter just kept laughing and laughing for several minutes.  And then every time he looked at the doctor he laughed again.  He hasn’t laughed that hard again since then so I guess I need to get a picture of the doctor to make Hunter laugh.

Other stuff Hunter has started doing this month- He loves to chew on his hands.  This isn’t actually new this month but he has been doing it a lot more.  He loves to spit out his pacifier and stick his hand in his mouth and chew or suck on it.  He also looks at his hands and turns them around and watches them.  He started blowing bubbles and drooling a lot this month.  Every once in a while he’ll blow raspberries but he isn’t doing it on purpose yet.  Hunter will be cooing and smiling at us and then suddenly his face will get serious and he’ll just stare at us.  A few times Hunter has completely turned himself around in his crib.  I put him to bed with his head at one end and it’s at the other end when I go back.  He picks his legs up and them slams them down on the bed and it somehow makes his body turn around.  Hunter does not like tummy time very much and he screeches when he does tummy time.  He has started pushing his legs forward while he’s on his tummy and it pushes his bottom up in the air.  It looks funny but it makes him really mad.  He has rolled over a couple more times too.

Sleep has been awful lately!  I don’t know what happened but I must have jinxed myself last month when I said Hunter was doing good with sleeping.  He is still ready to go to bed at around 7:30.  Then he’ll sleep a good stretch of maybe 3 hours and wake up to eat.  He usually goes right back to sleep.  Lately he’s been up every 1-2 hours after that.  Sometimes I just give him his pacifier and he goes right back to sleep.  Sometimes he wants to eat and usually goes right back to sleep.  Even though he usually goes back to sleep pretty good, it is still exhausting to get up so much.  I am so tired I actually looked up on google to see if I could die from a lack of sleep hahaha.  Apparently not since I’m still alive.

Hunter is still breastfeeding- he goes anywhere from 2-4 hours between feedings.  Right around 2 months Hunter started giving us a hard time about taking a bottle and has now decided to refuse to take one at all.  That makes it a bit hard for me to be away from him :-(   Rich and I went on a date last weekend and had to come home in between dinner and the movie so I could feed him.  Then I worried all through the movie that he was going to want to eat.  He was fine though because it was bedtime, when he usually does his longest stretch between feedings.

Hunter was at the doctor a couple of days ago and he weighed 15 pounds, 4 oz.  He didn’t have his height checked since it wasn’t an actual check up (he had a rash all over his tummy and chest that we were getting looked at).  Hunter is still wearing 3-6 month clothes and still wears a size 2 diaper.
