Logan is three months old today! Halleluyah! Three months is like turning a corner, right? Like when the baby has more predictable sleep patterns and becomes more interactive.
We are celebrating Logan’s three month birthday in Colorado, but I brought the sticker with me to do a photo shoot! Will post pics soon.
Check out this picture below at two days old and the one below that at 12 weeks. He is becoming a little boy.
As of last week, Logan weighed 13 pounds, 1 ounce. He has definitely filled out in his cheeks, tummy and legs. He is very strong and likes to fly in mommy’s arms and stand on his feet on my lap and march. He is smiling a lot and still loves looking at toys, lights, and being outside. He is also talking (he’s a genius, we tell you) and says “agoo, goo goo” when you talk to him. He’s very intelligent.
A few interesting things this month are how we lost all our naps, and then gained them back. One week, Logan decided sleeping is for babies. His nighttime sleep was less than stellar, waking at odd hours like 10:30 p.m. and then 5 a.m. It also took way too much time to get him to sleep after his last feeding and he looked in pain and very squirmy. It wasn’t very restful for anyone. Then he would skip his morning nap which used to be two hours, then skip an afternoon nap. It was not a fun week. I would spend the whole time between feedings trying to get him to sleep–rocking, walking, bouncing, swaying, shhing, etc. There was a lot of driving him around to get him calm or maybe take a catnap or strolling outside in the miserable heat. Lily and I were exhausted!
After a few days of that and before we left for our trip, I called the pediatrician because his symptoms were very similar to how he was before he went on Prevacid, a reflux medicine. We went to the doctor and changed medicines. Apparently, it’s common for the symptoms to return and he did just that. Now he dislikes the medicine’s taste, but we got our naps back and he is not in the pain we saw last week.
I wouldn’t say he has a typical sleeping routine right now because vacation can throw things off. He is napping two awesome long ones here in a swing, and is much easier to get down. I hope that continues! However, we think the altitude is affecting him, as he seems to have trouble breathing and is congested at night. We have a humidifier next to his crib and hope he’s getting better now that we’ve been here five days.
We hope when we get back, he starts sleeping much longer stretches. There’s supposed to be a magic 12-12-12 combo, and we’re there! Now it’s time to start working. It’s 12 hours at 12 weeks and 12 pounds. I’m just not sure anyone told him yet!
That’s all for now!
