Eat Drink & Be Mary: Jackson Cole | THREE MONTHS

6.21.2018

Jackson Cole | THREE MONTHS







SIZE:  Sweet boy is still rocking those rolls.  Cole is about 14 lbs, and is still in size 2 diapers and 0-3 month clothes.  But he's starting to fit into his 3-6 month clothes and his 0-3 month onesies are definitely snug.  





BREASTFEEDING: He's still eating 10-15 minutes every 2-3 hours.  BUT really he'd rather talk and smile up a storm while eating instead.  And I'm still pumping once a day to freeze for the future.
SLEEP:  At night Cole gives me 5-6 hour stretches and wakes up between 3:30 and 4:30am.  He also slept straight through the night a handful of times!!

SCHEDULE: We pretty much have no schedule whatsoever (still) -- it's Cole's world and we're just living in it.  ;)  
Cole now consistently wakes up between 6:50 and 7:30 everyday, and I'm going to try to move his bedtime up to 8:30/9 depending on when he eats.  He's also staying awake between 1 hr 15-30 minutes and naps anywhere from 30-2 hours.  The goal would be to get him napping a consistent 1.5 or 2 hours so we could get on more of a set schedule...but I'm just rolling with it for now.  


MILESTONES: Y'all on father's day he laughed for the first time.  Talk about my heart melting.  Cole is also talking so so much.  He's continuing to become more and more alert, holding his head up SO well especially when we're assisting him with sitting/standing.

LOVES: his hands (spends all day trying to get them to his mouth and this chews/sucks on them),  fans, sleeping on mama, "the wheels on the bus..", playing airplane, the pool, his daddy face (literally all Thomas has to do is say "hey" and he gets the biggest smiles, and he's still loving his paci

cousins


DISLIKES: same as last month: getting out of the bath time, nose frida, and he's starting to come around on Tummy Time the stronger he gets but still lets us know when he's over it

PLACES HE'S BEEN: now that he's older we've started taking him more and more places, so I'm obviously not about to list them all.  BUT he took his first trip to NC to see my family, we went out to restaurants twice and he slept the whole time and he went to church for the first time.

PERSONALITY: He really it such a good, calm, happy baby.  But he's come into his own a little and is letting us know when he's unhappy about something - usually he's tired and we haven't been home where I can do our normal naptime routine right when he starts showing the signs.

WHO HE LOOKS LIKE: Daddy's Mini Me.  But he definitely has my lips..I'll take it!

NICKNAMES: buddy, bug, Coley and anything else I randomly make up

THINGS I DON'T WANT TO FORGET: 
  • celebrated Thomas' first father's day
  • first mini road trip to NC
  • met more great-grandparents (G.G. and Bubby)
  • went in the pool
when everyone is taking a picture, but you just wanna stare at the fan


Here's to month four.  Time can slow down any day now, k thanks.
