3 months

Never got to a 2 month post - oops!

 3 month as of July 6, 2015
Weight: 14 lbs.
Length: 22 inches

Clothes: In 0-3 and some 3-6 month onesies. All 3 month sleepers and 3 month shorts

Health: He's got a little eczema just like his big brother

Diet: Landon's eating 4-5oz (mostly 5oz) at 7:30am, 10:30am, 1:15pm, 4:15pm and he gets his last bottle of the night, which is 7oz, at around 7:15/7:30pm. Somewhere around 3:00am he wakes up for a quick 3oz. He's a big eater, but it sure does take him forever to finish a bottle

Sleep:  Sleep is getting better and better everyday! He's currently fast asleep in his crib somewhere from 8:00 and 8:30pm. He wakes up around 3:00am-ish for a diaper change and small bottle, just to fall back to sleep until about 6:30/7am. We're hoping to get a solid 8pm-7am night in within this next month. Fingers crossed!

 Baby Gear Love: swing, baby bjorn, playmat, bouncer

Likes: sucking fists/fingers, diaper changes, smiling, smiling with tongue out, eating slowly, laying on his back staring up, bath time, warm water on head, being bounced on medicine ball, being worn, sleeping on someone, mommy

Dislikes: being rocked in a rocking chair, car rides

 Landon isn't a big crier, and when he does, it's completely manageable and for obvious reasons

Milestones: no more swaddle, sleeping in crib for naps/nighttime size 2 diapers, coo's, smiles all the time, celebrated Trace's birthday and his first 4th of July, babysitter, holds head up

Landon, I don't even know how put put my feelings for you in words. You are truly special. You are not only my baby, but you look like me too, and that is just the wildest thing ever... to see my genes, with my own two eyes, passed down to the next generation. Your disposition is so incredibly happy and smiley. I've never seen a baby smile quite like you do, and at everything, but especially at me. Unlike your big brother, you sure are a mama's boy! I often tell Daddy that "no one's ever looked at me the way that Landon looks at me" -- It's like you truly see me, look through me, and see me. It's bringing me to tears as I type it because your gaze is that powerful. I can't imagine my world without you in it and I feel so blessed to have been chosen to be your mommy. I'll never forget when Daddy and I found out that you, our littlest boy, was on our way to us. We were on vacation in Carolina Beach and had just gotten in the car to drive to a party store and have them fill a balloon with either pink or blue confetti (for us to pop) and learn your gender from. It was going to be an intimate moment for just daddy and I. As I sat in the car waiting for your Daddy to get in the drivers seat, out from my purse I pulled the sealed envelope with your ultrasound picture in it. I glanced at the envelope, knowing that my future was in it.... and with the sun so bright that day I saw a "Y". I didn't mean to see anything..... but you know as well as I do that there's no "Y" in "girl". Your dad got in the car and I froze. I couldn't believe I had just seen a Y. Or was I seeing things??? I didn't want to ruin the surprise for your dad, but I also couldn't hold it in, so there, in a parking lot in our car I told Daddy that "I saw a Y".... He was SO confused! Then I showed him the Y through the white envelope and we could see that the Y was attached to a 3 letter word. We were both shocked. Daddy honestly believed with everything in him that you were a girl, haha, and he was looking forward to having a daughter. Right then and there we decided that we couldn't wait and we tore open the envelope and there it was - IT'S A BOY!!! It was YOU Landon Nash. And you are everything we ever hoped for...
