Isaac is Three Months Old!

Isaac has grown from an 'infant' to a 'baby' this month. He intently watches everything going on around him, and he has definite opinions of his own now. He is so smiley, and he is being constantly entertained by the antics of his big brother. He has been going through a period of fussiness and spitting up, but it must be something developmental at this age because we remember Noah having the same issues around this time. He continues to love being held with his belly on our forearm - kind of the upside-down football position. There must be something very soothing about it, especially when he's feeling fussy.

We have settled into a predictable schedule where he goes to bed at 8pm and is up for the morning about 8am, with two overnight feedings. He takes three naps during the day and eats every three to four hours. He is sleeping overnight in his crib now, which was an emotional moment for me, but he Isaac is sleeping so much better now that he is in the crib. As for transportation, he loves stroller rides and the baby bjorn carrier. He likes car rides too, but he doesn't like the time between putting him in the car seat and when the car starts to move. He likes the motion and he doesn't like to wait!

Has it only been three months since Isaac has joined our family? We can't remember what life was like without him. He is a great blessing to us, and we can't wait to see what God has in store for him.
