I can’t believe another month has gone by with our little William. He still seems like a little baby to me and it is surreal to think of him as a three month old.
There haven’t been too many new developments with William. He has more awake time during the day and is alert and content looking at the toys hanging from his play mat or vibrating chair. He has been giving us some great smiles and squeals of delight.
He has found his hands and likes to stretch them out and lick his fist.
He likes listening to Raffi and having stories read to him. He is starting to like the bath a bit more, but still hates tummy time. We have done a baby massage class, sing a longs at the library and a baby sensory class. He also just went on his first boat ride, but I think he was more enamoured by dad than by being on the water.
This little dude got his British passport and a travel cot, so he’s ready for international travel! We took a trip to Oxford, hopefully it will give him some lofty ambitions for post secondary education!
We have been trying to carry him in his ergo carrier more often to get him used to it so that we can use it on some upcoming trips.
He is on a streak of great sleeps lately, going for 8 or 9 hours straight, which has really helped us catch up on sleep. Knock on wood it continues for a while! The other ladies in my mom’s groups are trying to start routines with their little ones, so I’ve been debating whether I should do the same. I’ve been trying to pay more attention to his tendencies throughout the day to determine when he gets tired or wants to feed. But we are out and about almost everyday, so it makes it hard to try to develop any sort of routine. I’ve started asking people’s opinions on the matter and would appreciate any advice people have to offer! I wonder if I should set nap times, and try to be at home for them and if I should try to feed him every 3 hours instead of on demand.
The last 12 weeks have gone by very fast. I dread having to sort his clothes to put away the newborn outfits (tear!). Even though a new baby brings about a whole new lifestyle and routine that we are getting used to, it seems like William has been part of our family forever.
