Brooks is three months old! He is such a good baby....he pretty much only cries when he's hungry or has a gas bubble that's hurting him. I looked back at Nora Grace's Three Month Summary to see what she was up to at this age. There are a lot of similarities between the two but the biggest difference is their sleeping habits....I'll get to that in a minute.
But look at him......is he not the cutest!? Brooks is a very smiley baby. And he laughs a lot.....it's so sweet.
Weight: I really have no idea how much B weighs. I think he's a little bigger than NG was at this age so my guess is maybe twelve pounds?! He's not what most would consider a chunky baby but he does have a cute little belly!
Length/Height: Again, I have no idea.....his pants are getting a little short so I think maybe he's longer than his sister was so my best guess is 24"
Eyes: Blue-we're a family of blue eyed people!
Hair: Lots of brown hair!
Clothes: He's been wearing 0-3 months but I plan to switch to 3-6 months this week. Like I said, he seems to be getting too long for his pants.
Diapers: He wears a size one. He usually poops once a day and it's usually while I'm holding him!
Likes: He loves for us to talk to him. He always just smiles, laughs, and "talks". He also loves to watch his big sister. I left him in his dock a tot this morning while I was getting ready and he started to get a little fussy. Nora took her ipad and sat by him and he instantly got quiet.
Dislikes: He does not like when you take his bottle away in the middle of a feeding to get him to burp. He has this funny little ticked off cry that he only does when you take his bottle away.
Eating: He drinks 4 ounce bottles every three hours during the day (there are times he goes longer if he's taking a good nap or we're in the car)
Sleeping: So Brooks is not as good of a sleeper as his sister! And it's mostly my fault! He has stayed in our room twice as long as Nora did! We moved Nora to her room at 6 weeks but I guess I haven't been in a big hurry to move B to his nursery because I'm not working and it's just easier to feed him at night when he's right next to me. He takes naps really good in his room though! We feed him a bottle right before we go to bed and we're lucky if he'll sleep for five hours straight. I feed him his middle of the night bottle and then he'll usually sleep another three hours. Cody is usually up early to go to the gym anyways so he usually feeds B before or after the gym. It works out well and neither one of us are totally exhausted from being up with a baby all night.
Milestones: Brooks rolled from back to belly twice in the same evening a few days ago. I feel like he's a little young to be rolling over consistently so maybe it was a fluke? He does seem to be trying to do it again though because you can see him use his feet and body to try and gain momentum but he usually just ends up on his side. He is very strong. He likes to stand so he can see all around him and sometimes when he is laying on his back, he will raise his head as if he's trying really hard to sit up. I think his desire to watch his busy big sister has a lot to do with this. We tried sitting in the bumbo since he clearly wants to sit up and he enjoyed that. He also loves to lay on his play mat. He works really hard to grab the hanging toys.
These two love each other, like a lot! She voluntarily took her ipad to sit next to him while he was in his mamaroo. She just talked and interacted with him and he ate it up!
And she won't ever leave him alone. Nora wants to be right next to us when Brooks is eating. She loves all over him and does things (like making him wear glasses) that I would think would irritate him but he just loves attention from her so he never fusses when she is all up in his space.
And I can't say it enough.....he is just the smiley-est little guy
Brooks truly is such a joy! We are so happy to have this sweet little boy to love on.
Everyone always ask how Nora likes being a big sister and the answer is.....she loves it! She regularly says "We can keep him" and we just laugh. I think she loves him a little more each day, just like the rest of us!
