James is 3 months old!

James is now 3 months old!! And I haven't blogged since he was 2 months old, ugh. I suck! I will do better, I will do better!

Weight: I weighed him at my breastfeeding support group today and he was 14 lbs 13 oz! He is up a little over a pound since last month. Still in size 2 diapers.  

Health: Seems to be completely healthy to me. Thankful for good health!

Sleep: Sleep has gone down hill, Mr. James. What is going on? growth spurt? wonder week? who knows, but I am not feeling it. He was doing so well with his 8-4am routine and all of a sudden this past week he is back to getting up around 1am, then again at 4/5am, then at 6/7 for the day. I hope this trend does not continue! Perfect timing too, right when I go back to work and have to wake up at 5:45 as it is. arg.

Clothes:  He wears 3 month onseies and pj type clothing and 6 month bubbles, shortalls etc.  

Social: His personality is showing more and more every day and its so much fun. I love watching him stare at his toys and gab and coo. He definitely knows who his mom, dad and GiGi are!

Diet: Breast milk! We have made it over a month without supplementing and I am so glad we are finally here. He nurses every 2-3 hours for the most part. Breast feeding is so much easier now and I truly believe anyone can be successful at it. Lord knows our journey was not easy!

Baby Gear Love: Still LOVE the Rock-N-Play sleeper. The Mamaroo has made a come back and we are obsessed! He uses it every single day and I am sooo glad we have it. The bouncy seat doesn't really do it for him anymore so if I need to do something around the house the Mamaroo is perfect. Love the PUJ tub, love the Bob, O-ball, and several Lamaze toys.

Crying: He cries when he's hungry and sleepy and when he gets out of the bath, in his car seat or put down and wants to be held. I think he is getting older now and wants to be played with all the time. Sometimes while I'm playing I will stop and do something and he will start crying like come back! Pay attention to me!

Likes: Baths, BOOBS, being swaddled, the mamaroo, fans, being worn in the baby carrier, and napping on mom and dad!

Dislikes: Still doesn't love the carseat, getting out of the bath, loud noises or getting too hot. 

Postpartum: Still kicking it. Trying to figure out how I can diet and lose weight and keep my milk supply up. It's so hard. I have to take in a ton of extra calories to make milk so losing weight is NOT easy. My OB doesn't recommend dieting at all, just "making better choices". I want to do weight watchers after I stop BF'ing to get this weight off.

Milestones: He rolled over! He rolled over from back to belly and has done it a few times actually. His head control is improving and he's almost totally there with that but still needs a little help.


  1. I'm so glad your breast feeding is on track!! You've inspired me to keep at it, as frustrating as it is.

  2. Yay! Stick with it girl, it gets better!!

  3. He is absolutely adorable!! He is filling out in his face you can see. His clothes are also the most fashionable things I've ever seen :)

  4. Thanks Jen!! Max is a cutie too!!

  5. I'm so jealous of how big he is! He is just too cute!

    I'm right there with you on the weight loss. I joined Weight Watchers a few weeks ago. For what it's worth, they allow for breastfeeding moms. They just give you more points to work with, I think.
