Three-month update

Ok, so I'm a little bit behind schedule since Sammy technically turned three months old last Wednesday, but better late than never, right? Sammy has been sleeping through the night now for over a month; he goes to bed around 8 pm or so and wakes up between 6 and 7 am. This means I am now averaging about 8 hours of sleep every night. I am insanely lucky to have a baby that enjoys sleeping as much as I do. Even nicer is the fact that Sammy appears to be a morning person--every morning he greets me with a gummy grin and a bunch of gurgles and coos.

Sammy continues to grow like a weed and is currently wearing 6-9 month clothing. Crazy. I have no idea what he weighs, but I'd wager he's between 15 and 16 pounds. Now that he's a bit taller, he's been able to use the walker that my mom bought for him; he loves standing and being able to look around from a vertical perspective. He can push himself backwards but hasn't quite figured out moving forwards just yet.

I am continually amazed at his neck strength; in the past month I've been able to transition him to forward facing in the Bjorn and to sitting upright in the stroller and he loves being able to see what's going on around him. Sammy's hand-eye coordination has also improved by leaps and bounds. He can now pick up a toy and bring it to his mouth...basically anything he can grab goes into his mouth.

It's amazing to look back on the past month and see all of the changes that have occurred in such a short period of time. Before I know it, I'll have a teenager on my hands.
