The past three months have flown by.... Our little boy has given us more joy than we could've ever imagined! Here's everything you need to know about our sweet E!
Weight: 11 lbs (10th percentile... More on this at the bottom of this post)
Height: 25 inches (75th percentile)
Head circumference: 16.75 inches (75th percentile)
Milestones: He is starting to try to roll over, but he isn't quite there yet. Whenever he gets frustrated or fussy and he's laying down, he kicks his feet and it makes him move in a circle. It's kind of funny. He's also starting to grab for things, and he's talking more and more! He also loves looking at his feet and hands.
Sleep: Last night was the first time he slept through the night in over a month. He slept for nine hours, which was glorious for this mama and daddy. Usually, he wakes up twice for feedings. The other night was the first night that he slept in his crib for the entirety of the night. Usually, he gets fussy and we get tired of going back and forth between the rooms, so we end up putting him in his bassinet in our room. Now, we are trying to create a habit (for us... Ha!) of keeping him in his crib all night.
Favorite Things: Sucking on his fist, reading books, talking to mommy and daddy, looking at fans and lights, listening to music, eating, bath time, facetiming/skyping with his family, swinging, cuddling with his daddy.
Health: Emmett has had a really hard time gaining weight. I've been to the lactation consultant, we've been to the doctor multiple times, he's eating twice the amount that he used to, and we're trying medicine, but he's still having a really hard time. When he was first born, he was a big baby. So if you could pray that we figure out why he's having a hard time gaining weight, that would be awesome.
Feeding: Emmett is primarily breast-feeding, but we made the decision to supplement with formula once or twice a day. He definitely prefers mommy milk, but is slowly resisting formula less and less. As I mentioned before, he has doubled the amount that he eats at each feeding.
