Three Months

I think you know you're a mom when your first thought of the day is "Alex is 3 months old today!" instead of "hey, it's my birthday today!".  It is my birthday today, but more importantly, Alexander is now THREE MONTHS OLD!  Wow.
Size: Last Tuesday at mom's group Alex weighed 15 pounds, 6.5 ounces.  We weren't able to go today since the only rule is that you do not come when you're sick and Alex is under the weather.  Still, from what I can see by the way his clothes fit (and the way my arms feel), he's still growing like a weed!

Likes: Alex still loves the playmat, although the swing he could take or leave at this point- pretty neutral about it.  He is completely fascinated by his crib mobile and loves taking baths in the whale tub.  He likes looking at the pictures in books and "reading along" with me.  He also likes "singing along" with Chris.  :)

Dislikes: Tummy time is still a major challenge.  You'd think I was torturing the poor kid.

Sleeping and Eating: Our little guy is starting to give me a few three hour stretches between feedings during the day!  Hurray!  He isn't quite sleeping as long as he was and I can't figure out why.  But he's still "sleeping through the night" by the textbook definition.
You can tell our sweet baby doesn't feel like himself in the pics, but that didn't stop him from "fist pumping" in both.  It's still one of his favorite past times!
