Owen is 3 months old!

Owen continues to grow and learn every day and it is so amazing to watch him. He is the happiest and most content baby!

GROWTH
Owen had his 2 month dr appt a week late. He ended up weighing 12lbs 5oz (34%) and his length 24.5 inches (91%). He is long and skinny! His head circumference measured at 40.5 cm (77%).

He seems so tall to me, which I now know is because he is. He might be a tall boy!

EAT
I have continued breastfeeding Owen. He does really well with this and I am very thankful! He has now transitioned to eating every 3-4 hours during the day. He goes longer stretches at night which is super nice for me.

SLEEP
Owen decided to kick off this last month by sleeping through the night twice! (YAY!). It was hit or miss on him making it through the night for the first 2 weeks of this month but now for about 2+ weeks he has slept through the night (about 8pm until around 6am). He is so amazing and I am so thankful for a good sleeper especially now that I am back at work.

He transitioned to sleeping in his room during this past month. There were no changes good or bad with this move so he has continued to stay in his room. We are working on a transition to his crib since he sleeps in his rock and play at night and typically in his swing during the day BUT what is working right now is much easier than dealing with 10 minute naps! So we are taking it one day at a time.

DEVELOPMENT/ACTIVITY
Owen smiles and coos a lot now. He is super responsive to social interaction and it is beyond adorable. He loves being talked to and will “talk back.” He loves any and all attention but especially attention from mama. He also loves when Liam tells him stories.

Rarely does Owen cry. When he does it is just a soft cry when he is getting tired, is hungry, or needs his diaper changed.

He loves kicking his feet and moving his arms. He loves being upright. He is getting better at holding his head up too. We try to practice tummy time when we can and Owen does really good with this. He has rolled over now many times.

He is beginning to be able to “play” with toys. He kicks the toys dangling from his activity mat. He also can bring toys to his mouth if they are placed in his arms however he doesn’t hold on to things yet.

This past month we have struggled with cradle cap, dry skin, and now his first cold!
