Documenting Declan (3 Months)

Weight: 14 pounds, 9 ounces
Length: 24.5 inches

Tick tock. Another month gone. Alex is always asking everyone's ages. He asked us again tonight and Sam said Declan was .25 years old. That's halfway to solid foods. Aye yi yi. He keeps getting cuter! I love these new stages he is entering and that he interacts with us more each day!

Constantly observing.

 Already a ladies' man.

First time swinging.

His poofy cheeks. So kissable.

First time all together. No one pooped this time!

Alex really loves Declan. He wants to cuddle with him all the time.

More snuggles.

Alex changed Declan's diaper. It was hilarious.

Edison found the button!

Hanging out with the boys.

Edison is still obsessed with kissing Declan. Even his feet.

He went swimming. Not really. I dipped his feet and he screamed like I had never heard him scream. So then I dipped his head.

Dancing baby.

Baby butt crack.

He had a huge blow out one day while we were out. So he just stayed in a diaper.

He discovered his hands and spends the majority of awake time staring at them. He turns his hands around and really examines them.

He wants to suck his thumb so badly. His tongue is always out, too.

His facial expressions are awesome.

Daddy was trying to get him to laugh. He's not ready yet.

Escaped from the swaddle.

Facial "hair!"

So smiley. If we smile at him while he's crying, he looks so conflicted and gives a half-smile half-pout.

"Can you bring me something from the kitchen?"

He is sleeping through the night. Every night! Usually about 10 hours. Hallelujah!

Here are a few more things Declan does for which I do not have a matching picture:
He...
...loves lying on hard surfaces such as the table or counter.
...tasted his first food. We were in the car and Alex yelled, "Edison gave Declan a goldfish!!!!" Declan was spitting it out and looking disgusted. But he had been crying earlier. I think Edison was trying to help. But I made a big deal of never doing that again.
...went on his first road trip and now has been to five states.
...is very generous with his smiles and cooing.
...wants to sit up. He is discontent lying on his back and tries pulling his head up. He doesn't love the Bumbo though.
...watches the boys play and his eyes follow them around the room while they run.
...breastfeeds every three(ish) hours and is usually done in 10-15 minutes. It looks like enough though, because this baby is a chunk!

Wow. He is getting chunky in the most perfect best way possible. So dang cute!! It's basically impossible to choose a favorite pic amongst all of those but I LOVE the close up one of him in his awesome outfit. I think the caption was one of his many facial expressions. He's a handsome little guy already!
