Miles’ Third Month

filed in:

My sweet three month old! You’re entering my favorite age!! I just love it!

Three months always seems like a turning point to me. You feel more sturdy (even though you were tough and massive straight out of the gate!). You interact more! You seem like you’re showing us more and more of yourself and I just love it. This month was FULL. You may have seen the 2nd Month blog post and thought “Wow, uh, that seems like a lot for an 8 week old” and it was….. and so was month three. The funny thing is, I didn’t feel like it was more work because of you, it felt like a lot because of the other three! We’re in such a challenging season with the other three for many different reasons. The internet doesn’t need to know all of the struggles of our individual children but here’s what we’re dealing with in a nutshell: Big, dramatic emotions as one child figures out new aspects of the world, outbursts and sensory struggles for another and just plain on 2 year old struggles (combined with some speech challenges)…. so nursing a happy baby seems like a piece of cake compared to all of that!

Ok, here are some highlights! :

  • This month, you went to FLORIDA!
  • You didn’t love the ocean but honestly, neither did Rhett! ha!
  • We said goodbbye to our beloved Miss Whitney and momma cried a lot!! We will never be able to replace her! Thankfully, she went to Florida with us and we made some sweet memories together before her last days!
  • We started building a garage!
  • Graham was in the middle of his Tball season! It was a family affair!
  • We celebrated baby James’ 5th Birthday and Dada’s 37th!
  • You have learned to be comfortable being passed around quite a bit!! Evy always wants to hold you!
  • You’re so happy, so chill, so content. Thank you LORD for that turnaround!
  • You started to spit up more but it’s nothing like Graham so we’re thankful! :)
  • Speaking of Graham… you still look JUST like him. Comparing your baby pictures is WILD! It’s a good thing because Graham is an incredibly handsome four year old!!! :)
  • You aren’t on a schedule really…. I mean how could you be with so much travel and life stuff happening?! But it’s fine! You’re doing great at nights and I’m grateful!!
  • You’ve lost most of your birth hair!! It’s falling out just like Graham’s did!!

Ok! Enjoy some of my favorite moments from the big camera from month three! :)

Thanks for reading!
