Parker Robert is 3 Months Old!

Our little guy is growing and changing so quickly! People usually make two comments when they see Parker: (1)"he is such a big boy" and (2) "he looks just like his brother." It is kind of strange how similar they look. People think they look like twins.

He has definitely put himself on a little schedule. He wakes up, eats, plays, and takes a nap. He will go from playing and smiling to crying in an instant. At that point he needs to be bundled and put to sleep.

He is smiling, cooing, and starting to blow raspberries. He is batting at toys and reaching for things. He loves the bouncy seat and the swing. He is not a huge fan of tummy time, but he will do it for a while. He loves to kick his feet really fast. He also loves to use his legs and stand up.

He is starting to recognize people. He definitely knows who his mommy is. He usually will calm down with me pretty easily. That is kind of special :)He LOVES Chase. Chase gets in his face and does all sorts of interesting things to him, but Parker always smiles at him. It is amazing how Parker recognizes children. He seems to know that they are young, and he loves them.

We are starting a new night-time routine. We are going to attempt this routine on a regular basis: bath, feeding, song, and put in the crib swaddled but awake. Hopefully, this new routine will help him learn how to fall asleep on his own and stay asleep :) He is waking up quite frequently, and I am tired.

Here are his stats:
*Weight (need to go have him weighed)
*Height (need to measure)
*Size 1-2 diapers (but buying size 2 this week)
*He is wearing mostly 3-6/6 month clothing. He can even wear some 9 month clothing.

We love our little man!
