I’m not really sure where the last 3 months have gone you guys?! Didn’t I just have my little boy a few days ago? With each passing day and week I just can’t get enough of this snuggly little dude. He truly has completed our family and with how much I talk about him, I’m so sorry I haven’t been given a proper update on him in a few months! Here’s a few fun things about our sweet Landon.
Eating– This kid eats like a champ. As far as nursing goes, he has it down ( which is such a relief since his sister and I did not have the same experience ). He eats so much that he’s 15lbs 11oz as of his appointment yesterday which puts him in the 80th percentile for his weight. WOO! He also has a large head ( I call it huge brain power ha ) because his head circumference is in the 97th percentile. Way to go little dude!
Sleeping – This kid really does enjoy his cat naps. He’ll sleep for about 20 minutes off and on throughout the day and at night, on occasion, he’ll sleep 6-8 hours. Unfortunately for me, I’ve woken him up the last 3 nights to eat after about 4 hours but our pediatrician told me I need to stop doing that so he can sleep. He should be sleeping through the night at least 10-12 hours by now, especially for how big he is. Ugh. Is it awful I just enjoy my time with my little man ( but this Mom needs her rest as well ) ! She recommended to let him fuss for about 10-15 minutes to see if he can put himself back to sleep. Here goes nothing!
Milestones – Landon is already so curious of the world! He loves slobbering on his fingers and looking at the fan and lights. I love how he just coos and wants to talk your ear off all the time as well. My little chatterbox! We’re still working on his tummy time to lift his and strengthen his head. He’s also great at following movement and listening for my voice when I move out the room.
Loves: Does eating count ha! He also loves looking and attempting to hold a conversation with his big sister Lily. That boy just melts when she comes over and begins talking about her day to him. I can already see such a great bond between the two of them that just warms my heart. He also loves to be held so he can look around the room over my shoulder. The boy just wants to be apart of every conversation going on so he’ll start to babble when he’s up right.
Hates: Bath time can be questionable. Some days he’ll enjoy laying in the water and looking at me while I give him a bath but other times it’s a mess. He also still hates having the hiccups. I think he just feels annoyed ( don’t we all though ?! ) with them and will have a sad cry of just wanting them to be over. I hear ya dude!
