I love 3 months!

Caleb turned 3 months old on the 18th! I have to say that 3 months old is one of my favorite ages! Can you see why!? Caleb is all smiles and coos and he is so much fun! And his brothers dote on him to no end! He now weighs 16 pounds 8 ounces, which is the 90th percentile for his age! It is nice that he is such a sturdy little baby already since he has 3 brothers who tend to be a little too rough with him if I am not careful! See how Caleb is bringing his sweet little hands together! That is new for him just these past few weeks! It is so cute to watch him discovering his own hands! They entertain him for 20 minutes sometimes...just checking out his hands! He also now likes to grab toys that are dangled in front of him, like off of the handle on his carseat! It makes him more able to be entertained while riding in the car or sitting in a bouncy seat since he reaches out and touches things! I love watching this boy grow! :) Caleb had a breakthrough with napping this past month! I tried letting him nap on his tummy, and he fell asleep on his own in less than 5 minutes! It was amazing! I tried to let him sleep on his tummy when he was a little younger and he didn't like it, but now he has been napping so much better during the day, sometimes for 2 hours or more. He still sometimes wakes at around 45 minutes, but can often be put back to sleep with just a little pat on the back or bottom! It is so nice to be able to lay him down for naps quickly since the twins destroy things when I leave the room to lay him down, even if it's only for a few minutes. I have to be quick!

Caleb brings so much joy to our whole family. Noah especially loves to talk to him and hold him. I love listening to Noah talk to Caleb, and hearing him repeat the babytalk and pet names that Nick and I call him. Noah can often be overheard refering to Caleb, as "my precious one", "chubba chubbas"or as Nick sometimes lovingly refers to him as, "big fat baby". haha Noah repeats them all!
Even though he is sleeping so much better on his own, I still love carrying Caleb in a sling or carrier while he sleeps, and he loves it too. It is seriously one of my favorite things to do with him right now, and I totally missed that with all the other kids! :( It is so precious to look down and watch him sleeping while nuzzling my chest, and I will treausure the memories and pictures of us forever! My heart!
