Crew Benjamin: 3 Month Update:

Happy 3 months to our sweet boy! I can't believe how much he is growing and how fast time is passing! He is the sweetest little guy and the biggest love. We are so incredibly blessed! 

His second month of life was extremely busy with celebrating his first Halloween, our fall vacation to Greenville, SC, and lots of moving preps! Next month will be another busy month as we will finally get to introduce him to all of our family and friends in Florida, celebrate his baptism, his first Thanksgiving, and completing his first Navy move! 

He has changed so much in this past month and is doing so much more! He laughed for the first time right around Halloween (at 2 1/2 months), and it is funny because that was the exact time that big sister laughed for the first time too (at 3 1/2 months). His giggle is contagious and the most adorable thing to listen to! He is super ticklish under his chin/chest and he loves when we dance with him! It has truly been another amazing month little dude and I can't wait to see what you do next! 

Crew's Stats:
*Weight: 14.0 lbs
*Height: 25 inches
*Diaper Size: Size 1 Pampers Swaddlers
*Clothes: 3 month
*Teeth: No teeth yet, but I wanted to go ahead and put this into our updates because he seems to be taking after his sister and starting to show signs of teething. He has been drooling and loves when we let him chew on our fingers. We will continue to keep a close watch and see what happens.  
*Sleep: He has been doing amazing! Bedtime is at 8PM and he doesn't wake until 4AM or even 4:30AM (so he is getting a good 8 hours of sleep), he eats and then goes right back down until 6:30AM and we are all getting up anyways so it works perfectly! He takes his first morning nap around 7:30AM/8AM and sleeps anywhere from 2-4 hours. He is seriously amazing! He also naps in the afternoon a couple of times and then is usually awake the rest of the evening until bedtime! I don't have him on any kind of nap schedule and am not planning on doing that until after our big move and we are settled in!  
*Food: Exclusively breastfed! He is still eating every 2-3 hours when awake. I feel incredibly grateful too that he only nurses for about 5-10 minutes (on one side) and is good to go (Charli was the exact same way)! 
*Noises: He LOVES to talk!!!! It is my favorite thing! The coo's, the giggles, everything! He is so alert and aware of all of us now!
*Social: He is such a love to be around and is honestly such a relaxed/chilled little man. He puts a smile on everyone's face! He still loves to be outside and loves to be faced forward now when being held! You can tell he is just taking in the world! He loves movement; the car, the stroller, the swing, if we are out and about he is asleep (definitely different than Charli was).
*Other: His absolute favorite thing is BATH TIME! We do baths for him every other day and he is the happiest little dude! He loves to just splash and kick in the water and is guaranteed to cry as soon as we take him out! He also loves his hands and you can find them in or around his mouth 99% of the time!

We love you little man!
Keep growing big and strong!
Happy 3 months!
