3 months old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My little man is 12 weeks old today and I am SOOOOOO in love with him!!! His smile, his smell (most of the time!!) and the way he prefers me over anyone else makes my heart melt!!! Seriously, he knows when I leave the room! It is unbelievable!

This was his first night in his crib. The girls moved to the nursery around 8 weeks old but I didn't move David until week 11 and that is only because daddy insisted. :) He did great. We bought one of the Angel Care (SIDS) monitors and that helped me relax a lot! He sleeps around 4 to 6 hours before he gets hungry again so if I could just get him to eat around midnight, I might get a good night's sleep. Sadly, he usually eats around 9 or 10pm so that means we've had a standing date around 3am. :) We'll get there! Since I am no longer working outside of the home it's not a big deal.

Just chillin' on the boppy lounger waiting for daddy to get home from work.

Sweetness


Concentrating hard :)


More sweetness. Eden just adores him. She wants to be around him and touch him ALL DAY LONG!!! I truly thought I would have some jealousy issues with her but she has been so great with him.


It's weird to think Eden was my baby not too long ago and now she looks so big to me!





Ella and brother


I couldn't resist grabbing the camera because these sweatpants looked SO dang cute on him!!! Plus, this was the first time for him to wear a 6 month old shirt....and it fit perfectly! Shocker! I assume he is somewhere around 15 pounds now becase he was in the high 14's at 2 months.


Guess who is a thumb sucker???? Yep, I keep trying to push him towards the pacifier because it will be easier to break him of, but he likes to spit it out once I walk away and suck on his hand until he finds his thumb. I must admit, it's kind of cute. :)


Where is it??? Where is it???


Found it!


Last week we went to Nash Farms to celebrate Ella's 4th birthday (will post pics of that later) so we decided to get a picture of David on his first tractor!


Talking to daddy after he changed his diaper. Clean diapers always make him so happy!





Nap time


Cuddle time with Grandma Hall


He's a big fan :)


Mother's Day picture with daddy :) Check out his new flip flops!!! LOVE THEM!


We spent Mother's Day afternoon at Auntie Ashley's pool. Here is Baby D in his first swim suit!


Cutie Pie!


Mommy and David. It was too cold for him to get in the pool so he napped with me in the shade.:)


Trying to take some Mother's Day pictures in the house...but it was a little too dark......




.....so then we moved outside and it was a little too windy! :) Oh well. It was a great day that I will cherish always!!!! Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies out there!!!

11 week old pics


Although this is one of the sweetest "first smile" pics in all of the world, you're probably wondering why we dressed Baby David in pink. WE DIDN'T! This is Ella!!! Doesn't Baby D look JUST like her????

His face is a little bit rounder than hers was, but some of the pictures I take of him just make me smile because they bring back sweet memories of Ella when she was his age.


He still sleeps on his back half of the time and his tummy the other half. It's works out great for me because we've been instructed to do a lot of tummy time in order to "shape" his skull properly so I just use his nap times as "exercise time." :)


He doesn't love the bumbo seat just yet, but it is another good method of strengthening his neck muscles so I try to get him to sit in it every now and again.


One of my very favorite times of the day.....when daddy walks in the door after being at work all day! The kids go bonkers! It is just precious.


Telling daddy about his day - he has REALLY started to "coo" a lot.









He loves to be swaddled tightly but he is the strongest baby we've ever had because he can work his way out in seconds!!! It is unreal!!!







Happy baby


This is his "coo-smile." When he really gets goin' it is awesome! David got him to laugh for the first time this weekend and I got a little bit of it on video so I will try to post that later. IT IS SO SWEET!


Scrunched up little man :)


Baby D and Ella


His face looks more and more mature as the days go by. Make it stop!!! :)


"Flirt" smile :)



I love how his chubby little cheeks sag


Have a great week! I'll post pictures of him next week to celebrate his 3 month mark!!!
