Nick Jay - 3 Months

Well Nicholas Jay, you are officially three months old!  (3 months and one week at this point, will you please slow down.  I am your mother so you have to listen to me.)

You have transitioned to size 2 diapers and even occasionally wear a size 3 at night.  I'm thinking of purchasing some more cloth diapers so that you can join your brother in wearing those soon.  I was worried how they would fit you when you were just a teeny newborn, but you are not so teeny anymore!  I don't keep track any longer of how often you nurse but if your thighs are any indication you're growing just fine.  :)

You are such a smiley, happy baby.  You love to talk and coo at everyone, and you've even started to laugh.  You still love to snuggle.  You generally only nap during the day if you are in your carseat or someone is holding you.  I don't mind it, because you have become a CHAMP at sleeping through the night!  I thank you for this!  Sometimes I check on you two or even three times in the mornings before you are awake and ready to nurse.

Although you are generally my smiley, happy boy, you do have some dislikes.  You DO NOT LIKE TO BE COLD.  This means you don't like when someone touches you when their hands are cold (winter weather is here kiddo, so this will be a tough one!).  It also means that when it's time for you to get out of the bathtub you HOWL.  It is very sad.  And lately evenings have been pretty rough, and I think it's because of your lack of naps.  We'll be working on that!

When we were in DC you rolled over from back to tummy for the first time, and you've done it several times since.  You love to wiggle all over the floor and your crib, and you love to kick your legs.  You are such a sweet baby, my Nicholas Jay!  We love you!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Alex!

Alex Henry, you are TWO YEARS OLD!  How in the world did that happen?!  You continue to bring us joy every single day and we love you more than words can express.

You are talking all the time now.  Much of it is not discernible, but you are getting really good!  Your new favorite word is "bulldozer", and you say it pretty darn well!  You also like to say "whoa, whoa, whoa" when you are requesting to be picked up, and "down" when you want to go downstairs, be put down, or want little brother to be put down.

You are so adventurous.  You can climb halfway up the rope ladder and the rock climbing wall at the playground, and you show no fear when going down the big slide all by yourself.  You love to play in water and sand, and being outdoors in general.  You think Dad's tool shed is the best thing ever.  :)

You love toys, books, and trucks (all things that "go", really).  You are so smart, and goofy, and very sweet and cuddly too.  We love you so much, Alexander.  Happy 2nd Birthday.

The garage with Dad?  Nothing better!

At your very first wedding...you did great, Al!

Pumpkin carving with Nana in the White Mountains

Such a cool dude.

"Mom, look at my tower!"

Alex has gotten himself into a bit of a pickle, er, basket.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AL!  Fun at Dickinson Park today.

Alex has been "chillaxin" since he was four months old.  :)

Applesauce!

That one was just a teeny bit too heavy, Al.  :)
