3 Months

Jed soapy and happy in his galvenized tub

Jedediah is three months old today! He is growing right before my eyes. He seems to do something new—albeit it’s often so small it’s only significant to his parents—everyday. He grins and talks and uses his eyebrows to express many of his emotions. I especially love how his entire body gets into his excitement! He’s so much fun!  He's learning to do all the normal developmental things like rolling over and studying his hands.  And much to his mother’s relief, this baby sleeps like an angel. Jed has allowed me to get a solid 6-7 hour stretch of sleep every night for nearly a month now! We have been blessed with a really good little boy.

It’s a little sad to know that my newborn is gone forever even though he's still just a plop. However, I feel much more excited about the future and the new things that will happen as my baby grows. Jed’s personality is beginning to show; that’s the best part. I’m excited to get to know this new and innocent little person in my life. I am sincerely content right now. Although my everyday life as a mother is slow and often uneventful, I couldn’t be happier. It’s those moments when I get to stop what I’m doing and play with my son that I feel pure joy.

  3. I am highly jealous of the all night resting thing, especially since Cache just learned that two weeks ago and he still isn't consistent. :) I think he is the cutest baby I have ever seen. I also think this is why we have more babies. We love every stage and forget how small and precious they are in the beginning.

  5. What a cute boy! Millie just hit 6 months, and I was reflecting on the same things--that it's kind of sad that she's growing up so fast, but she's so fun at each stage!
