Calvin - 3 months

Calvin David Dean

You are three months old!
You weigh about 15 lbs, wear size 2 diapers and size 6-9 month clothes.  You didn't have a monthly check up this month, so the weight is from our bathroom scale - but based on the way you're burning thru the sizes of infant clothes; I'd say you're growing.  :)

You're trying to sit up as I type this post - you're kind of propped up on a pillow in bed with us, and tonight is the first time you've tried to do that.  You've really found your hands this month, and have started to suck your thumb....I'm still trying to get you to take a binky, but you still don't care for it much.  I figure it's easier to take away a bink later on, than your thumb - but you aren't having it.  :)

You started giggling this month, and do it most often when we change you.  You talk all the time, make eye contact and love to be in the mix of things.
You slept all the way thru the night once - and even though it was just one night, I think that we'll get there sooner than we did with your brother.  I looked, and he was four and a half months old the first time he slept thru the night.  When we went in for your two month appointment, our doctor said now is the time to start "dictating the schedule" - and I told him we didn't have to, because you were on a great one.  You really are an easy baby.

I went back to work this week, and we couldn't have asked for better care for you during the day.  Most days you'll go to Pam's - it means early mornings and late nights, but I love that you get to have the same start Chandler did.  Kelley watches you one day a week too; and she's just as in love with you.  We couldn't ask for two better ladies to watch over you.

I wanted to make sure you'd take a bottle for them (hence the pic above) and you took right to it, without blinking an eye.  However - we found out you do NOT like formula, and with as fast as you're growing (and as much as you're eating) we're trying to figure out a way to sneak that in.

You still love to kick your legs - I don't know if it's because you're growing so fast (that's what I think) or if it's because you see your brother running and you want to too (that's what your dad thinks).

I haven't been great at taking pictures of you with my good camera, so there are a lot of cell phone pictures in this post - but it isn't because we don't love you. 
We love you buddy - so much, I just can't tell you.  I worried we wouldn't love another baby as much as we love your brother, and that was silly - because we love & adore you, and are so proud of you.

And as I finished typing this post - you've fallen asleep, holding hands with your daddy who is asleep next to you.  Love you sweet Cal -
