Baby Boston is now 3 months old...Wow.

At his 3 month Dr. appointment, he weighed 12.5 lbs. and was 23.5 in. long. The doctor said he is measuring 1 to 2 months ahead in developmental skills (mental, physical, etc.). That made us very proud to know! Our little Boston is so smart already :).

Some of his 0-3 Month outfits are getting snug on him and it seems like only yesterday, they were swallowing him up.

He smiles all.the.time! I could spend hours smiling at him, just to watch him smile back.

I love watching him get excited as he watches his airplane mobile in his crib.

He grasps things for more than 1 second and always brings them to his mouth.

He likes to "watch" t.v. I guess it's the contrast of colors.

He likes to look in the mirror and smile back. Lots of fun!

He is a very happy baby and rarely cries.

He coos and squeals while he plays. It is the sweetest.noise.ever.

He has slept through the whole night 3 times, but usually only wakes once at about 4am.

We are still working on tummy time. He likes it for about 5 minutes, then he gets frustrated. We are trying to teach him to roll over.

As soon as Tim walks in the room, Boston looks for him and smiles. He loves his daddy!

It is so much fun watching him grow and develop new skills.

An Update of our little life...

I haven't posted in a while, so here is a little catch up post...

Boston's 1st Thanksgiving...

We had a very nice time visiting with lots of family. I always love to get together with everyone and catch up on life. We ate lots of delicious food and really enjoyed ourselves. Boston did a lot of sleeping and observing. I wonder what went through his head being around all those people....I told him he better get used to it, because our family is so big and fun!

Boston is such a happy and healthy baby. We are so thankful to have such a wonderful baby boy in our lives. He smiles all the time and I just can't get enough. I love to watch him look at things. I can picture his little wheels turning as he takes in all that this world has to offer. I try to tell him about what he is looking at to help him learn. I enjoy every moment of showing him what life is all about.

He "talks" to us and coos and squeals. I talk back and mimic his noises in hopes that I am talking in a language he can understand. He still only fusses if he is hungry or uncomfortable (bored or tired). I love the way he "hums" in his sleep. Sometimes he will make little faces as if he is about to cry, then makes a big smile and laughs right after. I can't imagine what he dreams about, but it must be pretty interesting.

He loves his monkey mat. When we first introduced him to it, he would just lay there and stare a little. Now, he waves his little arms and grabs the toys with excitement. He really likes the zebra and is very determined to get a nibble of its leg.

He also loves watching his mobile. I think it could keep him occupied for hours...

Our house is now decorated for Christmas. It is so neat to have our own little baby this time of year. I look forward to years to come when Boston shows his excitement with me about this wonderful holiday season. I have placed little things that I have had over the years in his room. Little things that I feel like a child can appreciate more, like a little stuffed snowman with a bell inside. He loves it!

I love to sing Christmas carols to him. I think his favorite is "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer". He seems to smile the most at that one. I have showed him the mistletoe, which Daddy knows is my favorite. We've learned that little B likes the bell on it, making it worthwhile to have fake mistletoe ;). He is very fascinated by the Christmas lights too. We have hung his Baby's 1st Christmas ornament from Hallmark to enjoy for years to come.

My mom made him a very special stocking. Although we won't get feedback this year, I look forward to the excitement in his eyes on Christmas morning when he sees that Santa has filled it.

Boston got a visit from a couple of out of town friends. Aunt Spano and Aunt SB both came and loved on him.

Here is a little Kodak moment that I just had to capture. Little B cooperated very well with what his silly mommy made him do ;).

I had my first day back at work today. I shed a few tears while saying goodbye this morning. I really missed my little man, but he was happy and had lots of fun with his daddy. He even got to meet Uncle Driggers.

Well, that's all for now! Have a great week!

Saints game and Doctor visit

Daddy is SO proud of his little Saints fan!

Our attempt at a self-taken family photo.
Boston decided to make a silly face :). I love that boy!

Just chillin', looking cute

Today Boston had his 2 month checkup. He now weighs 10 lbs. 14 oz. and is 22 inches long! (25th percentile for both) The doctor said he is still looking great and that makes me a very happy momma. Of course, I knew that :) but it is reassuring to hear it from the doctor. He has gained 4 lbs. since birth!

Unfortunately, he had to get 3 shots today. :( My poor baby was not happy when he was getting them and it made me very sad, but shortly after he was just fine. He took a nice long nap after the Dr. visit and woke up in a good mood. Daddy said, at least he got some cool band-aids ;).

Laughing with his big bear!

Boston is two months old today. I always say this, but time sure is flying by. Boston has been alert since the day he was born, but he is more alert than ever now and it is so much fun to see him watch things and "see" him processing everything he is taking in. I am getting to know his crys and which means what. He only fusses when he is hungry, uncomfortable, and sometimes bored. He really is a little sweetie.

This month we have noticed him sucking on the end of his fist. He will drop his passy just to get a taste of it. It's really cute to see that he has found his hand. He also drools now too...

He loves to stand up (with help from Mommy and Daddy of course!). He would rather stand than sit and he just looks around. When he's excited, he flaps his arms and makes a cute little concentrating face.

Daddy thought he would help little B become a little more acquainted with Molly. Molly will give little kisses to Boston and sniff him, but if I try to put them close (to take a picture), Molly just moves away as if she is scared of him. We aren't sure if Molly liked this, but Boston looked like he did!

Little B with his seahorse

Daddy feeding Boston for the first time. He did a really great job :)

I put Boston on his play yard every now and then to see if he will notice the toys hanging down. He now moves alot more than before, but hasn't quite noticed that when he hits the toys it causes them to swing. He does just study them though.

A visit from Uncle Ryan

First time in his little bathtub. The bathroom sink was getting too small.

Napping on Daddy

He likes to sleep with his hands up or in the air. It doesn't look comfortable to us, but he really likes it.

Watching t.v. in his swing

Boston smiles back at us and it is so sweet. Our favorite thing is to just look at him and get him to smile or laugh. He has a beautiful little smile and it makes me SO happy. He is a very happy baby! I think he actually enjoyed his bear picture this month!
