Kase - 3 months

Dear Kase,

 I'm going to make this 3 month letter short and sweet.  You are such a great baby (that is an understatement) and your Daddy and I are so lucky.  We thought Kyla was an easy baby at the time, but now we really know what an easy baby is.  People always ask me if you ever cry because you're always so happy and smiley!  I am so thankful you are here with us and we will be celebrating these holidays as a family of four.  I love you so much!

Love, Mommy

Weight: 17 pounds exactly according to our home scale right after eating 6 ounces
Height: Not sure, will update at your next appointment
Diaper Size: Still in 2's, but as soon as this pack is gone we're switching to 3's.
Clothes Size: 6 months, 6-9 months and some 9 months
Shoe Size: Still not wearing shoes
Eye Color: Still blue like Mommy :)
Hair Color: Light brown
Next Doctor Appointment: January 14th
 (You will be 4 months on December 24th, but they couldn't get you in until January 14th so we're going to do your 4 month and Kyla's 2 year appointments together)

You are still eating your last bottle around 9:00 each night and going to bed shortly after.  You are still swaddled and sleeping until 6:30 every morning.  You usually wake up to eat and then go back to sleep for an hour or two.  You are always so smiley in the morning so I usually snap lots of pictures.  Otherwise we just play with your sister.  You take little naps throughout the day, but I am trying to get you to take at least one good nap in your crib in the afternoon when your sister naps.  Some days you do and some days you wake up after 20 minutes.  You like to hang out on your floor mat or in your swing during the day as long as I am near you, talking to you.  You love attention!  We try to keep you awake after dinner so you're nice and tired for bedtime.  Mommy still holds you to sleep, but it usually doesn't take long.

You are eating anywhere from 4-6 ounces every 2-3 hours during the day.

*You will be getting baptized this Sunday.
*You were an adorable little giraffe for your first Halloween.
*You have found your hands and love to suck on your fingers.
*You have started losing your hair and have the nice little bald ring in the back of your head.
*You still aren't a huge fan of tummy time and have yet to roll over.
*You LOVE smiling at Kyla.
*You are much better riding in the van as long as we are moving.  As soon as we are stopped at a light, you get very antsy.
*You can hold your rattle and love to shake it around and look at it.
*You are close to holding your head up by yourself.  I pulled the bumbo seat out, but you're not quite ready for it yet.
*I think we will bring up the jumperoo soon too.
*You slept in the pack and play for the first time at Grandma Cheryl's and did awesome.  No surprise there!
*You are a drooling machine.

Happy 3 months sweet boy!


  1. I love the monthly baby pictures. Totally wanna do this once baby number 2 is here:)

  2. He is so happy; how sweet!

    I always loved when the girls could get their check-ups down at the same time.

    We just brought our jumparoo up over the weekend. It's fun to watch LB in it, even though he hasn't started bouncing up and down in it yet.

  3. What a sweet baby boy! Our little guy just turned 3 months old, too, and I LOVE writing his monthly letters! It's already so crazy to look back on his first two posts. I can't imagine how exciting it will be to look back at a year's worth of them! Happy 3 month birthday, Kase!

  4. Can't believe it is already 3 months! He is starting to look like Kyla.

  5. I love that cute little shirt he's wearing. His smile is awesome! How special he will be baptized on Saturday!

  6. How is he seriously already 3 months?! And getting cuter by the minute?! :) I love how happy and smiley he is, I hope I get a baby like that, lol!!

  7. So glad I got to hold him for a little while on Thanksgiving! He's so stinking cute.
