3 Months Old!

My baby boy is 3 months old! (ok, officially on the 11th) I can't even believe it. He is a growing boy with lots of cute rolls, and he has officially doubled his birth weight! Go Cooper!

At 3 months, he is smiling all the time, he laughs at silly Mommy, laughs when you tickle him, talks a lot, loves to play with his toys-he is even starting to grab them! He is not rolling yet, but can lift his head up really well when he is on his tummy. He isn't hating his car seat as much anymore, but it is still a bit of a struggle. The lights and sound car mobile that Papa and Yaya got him for Christmas has helped a lot in that department!

He is sleeping a total of 12 hours at night-waking up after 9 or 10 hours to eat, then going back down-woohoo! :) Ahhhh, glorious sleep! He is starting to get on a little bit of a predictable schedule because of this. He goes down to bed between
7:30 and 8:00, waking up between 7:30 and 8:00 the next morning. Up for about 2 hours, then back down for an hour nap. Up for 2 more hours, then back down for a 2-3 hour nap.(This is SOOOO awesome, because it is the same time that Ella takes a nap!) Up again for another 2 hours, and then back down for a smaller nap that usually lasts about 1/2 hour-45 minutes. This nap gets him through so he can make it to bedtime! So, we are getting there!

He is such a happy baby and we love having him in our family! :) We love you Cooper, baby!

He is sooo cute! I can't believe it has already been three months! How are you guys doing?

BTW, the comment I deleted was some random comment posted in German, so I didn't even know what it said. Very weird!

cutie pie! and i'm jealous...jackson still isn't on that good of a schedule. goes to bed around 9-9:30, sleeps till about 5:30/6:00, bottle, back to bed for 2 hours. then the naps are a bit unpredictable. but, soooooo much better than being up every 3-4 hours during the night!
