Bennett | 3 Months

Month three has been SO much fun! Bennett is really starting to develop a little personality and I think it's the cutest thing in the world when he laughs. He thinks I am crazy when I make faces at him and he tries to copy me. We got settled into our new routine with me going back to work and things seem to be going pretty good. My husband is an absolute ROCKSTAR and gets Bennett up in the mornings, gets him dressed & fed, and takes him to my parent's house or daycare. I hate not being able to see Bennett in the mornings but it makes our afternoons and night time together that much sweeter : ) 

Weight/Length: I will update after his next dr's appt but my guess is around 14-15lbs. I'm guessing his length is somewhere around 24in. 

Hair: Still brown but a lot more blonde is starting to show through. He is still losing quite a bit in the's pretty funny looking. I have to brush his hair a certain way after his bath or it will look insane. 

Eyes: Very blue

Clothes: 3-6 months

Diapers: Size 1

Sleeping: Bennett gets a bath at 7:30, bottle at 7:45-8, swaddled and asleep by 8:30-8:45. He sleeps until we wake him up at 6:30 this next morning. He has been sleeping through the night in his crib for the last month and it has been a game changer! Diffusing lavender in his room at night has been so helpful with getting him to sleep quickly and helping him stay asleep. 

Likes: Being swaddled, car rides, walks, his paci, waking up in the morning (happiest guy in the world when he wakes up!), and sucking on his hands. 

Dislikes: Being hungry, getting out of the bath, having a dirty diaper, breaking out of his swaddle and having cold hands. 

Eating: Bennett eats 5oz bottles every 3.5-4 hours during the day. At night he gets a 6oz bottle before bed. 

Milestones: Bennett hit a lot of fun milestones this past month..sleeping through the night (!!!), laughing, playing with his hands, holding toys, and holding his body up during tummy time : )

Baby items we can't live without: MamaRoo, Fisher Price sit-me-up floor seat, Rock n Play, velcro swaddles, Wubanub pacis, and his dog lovey. I want to do a post soon on our first three month essentials..a video maybe?!
