My sweet handsome dude turned three months! He's smiling, cooing,
giggling, and batting at his toys. Sometimes he manages to grab ahold
of one. :) He's growing up sooooo fast! Unfortunately, he doesn't
like to go out very much. He is super cranky out in public, so we don't
go out very often. Usually, it's just Crew and I that go out together,
but the other day Daddy came with us. It was actually quite
manageable; as long as Arthur carried him around the stores, he was
rather pleasant. So, from now on, Daddy is coming shopping with us! On
our last shopping trip, we purchased a new sofa. I'm embarrassed to
admit it, but this is the first sofa we've purchased. For several
years, I'd only been using a hand-me down futon that my mother had given
to me when I'd first moved away. It was high time I replaced it, plus I
didn't want Crew bumping his head on the wooden arms (though I do plan
on just moving it into the computer room as a spare "bed"). It comes in
on the 26th. I'm definitely going to post pictures, though I'm sure no
one cares about the sofa but me. Hahaha Hey, it's a big deal for me,
and I'll celebrate it if I want to. :) So, happy three months to Crew,
and yay for a new sofa!!!
He cracks me up with his faces sometimes!
He had had just about enough photo taking for the afternoon. Lol
This isn't Crew's first experience with tummy time, and though he usually lifts his head while doing mini push-ups, today he thought he'd lift his legs instead. Silly guy! Seriously, that's really all he did until he got tired. That's when he decided he'd try to take a nap. So cute! ...until he got angry.
I recently purchased my little guy a new winter hat. This is probably something I should have done before it got cold, but hey, better late than never. Plus, he does have other hats, just not as freaking adorable as this one. :) I'm going to also throw in a couple of other pictures, just because I can. ;)
This one makes me laugh
Daddy bought him Woody from Toy Story. So cute! You can clearly see how much he adores it...okay maybe not so much. One day he'll actually enjoy toys, but for now he just stares and drools.
...from his bassinet and into his crib. I'm happy he's in his room now (and glad to have my room back), but it's kind of sad not having him there to check on through the night. Well, I still check on him, but I have to walk a bit further to do it. Ha! He's growing tooooooo fast! He's finally beginning to grow out of his "fussy phase", which is a relief. And he's doing great sleeping at night. He typically sleeps anywhere from 6-8 hours straight, eats, then goes right back to bed for at least another 3-4. He used to put up such a fuss going down for the night, but now he goes to bed without hardly making a peep. Now when he gets put to bed around 8 pm, he's out all night and I get to party. When I say party, I mean that I can eat food, take a shower, and lay down on the sofa. That's my idea of "fun" these days. Oh the joys of motherhood...but boy do I love him!
Awwwww, he looks like a little candy cane (or a big one, depending on how you look at it)!
My baby thinks it's pretty funny when I cough, so I can only imagine how funny it'll be when I really come down with something. And yes, these are fake coughs just for entertaining the little one. And I debated on whether or not to post this because I hate my voice (don't we all?!), but his cuteness overrides my ewieness. I just made that up. I'm so cool. Isn't my boy just adorable???!!!
My little guy arrived a few weeks early, and already he's a month old! Let's see...this month has brought lots of changes, stress, tears, and sleep deprivation, but mostly it's helped me understand the love a mother has for her baby. As not so awesome as it is sometimes, I wouldn't change a thing. I'm so happy to have him, even on his fussiest of days. It's still strange to think of myself as a mother, though. That will take some getting used to I think. :) Of course, I have millions of photos, so I'll choose my favorites (I'll try to narrow it down to my top 200, tee hee). Meet my son- my sweet baby boy Crew!
