Ryder at 3 Months

Ryder is THREE months old already! That is 1/4 of the way to one year!

He had been sleeping almost the entire night. He'd go to bed around 8-9pm, get up once between 1-2am to nurse and then go back to sleep until about 7am. It was lovely. Unfortunately he is currently recovering from his first cold, his cry is so hoarse, it is cute, but sad sounding. The cold really messed with his sleep and he has been sleeping with me since I'm not sure I would hear him cry with how weak his voice is if he were in his own room. We're finally getting back to a fairly normal sleep pattern, still getting up once a night, but way better than about a week ago when he was up 3 times every night.

He ALWAYS has his fingers in his mouth. He also manages to gouge his forehead no matter how often I trim his nails. He loves playing on his play mat and has started grabbing a hold of the toys that hang from the bar. He smiles and giggles at us - especially Justin. He does not usually like sitting still. He likes to be moving - mostly carried. He rolled over for the first time, front to back on the 14th.

According to my bathroom scale he weighs about 17 pounds. He is wearing size 2 diapers and 3-6 month / 6 month clothing (depending on the brand).

We're loving on this little boy and can't wait to see what he does next.

Hello April - Currently

I love April. Hopefully we'll finally start experiencing normal Spring weather - it SNOWED just over a week ago...silly weather. I also love April because my birthday is this month! And Easter (this year). Sometimes they are on the same day even! But not this year.

I'm trying to figure out why this little boy has decided he HATES tummy time. He liked it, he would usually do it for at least 10 minutes without fussing until about two weeks ago and now he starts screaming the second I put him on his tummy. He does slightly better if I prop him up on a pillow. But he used to be fine just laying on his tummy...now he is not.
