Today Justice turned 3 months! It is the benchmark age at which many veteran moms tell me things get easier. While he is still a pretty fussy guy, he has found a larger vocabulary of communication with us that does not include only crying… Now its screaming, shouting, grunting, coughing, cooing and crying. It is a welcome change (well except for the screaming part). He also is very interactive with us and requires so much stimulation to keep his active mind busy. Just yesterday he rolled from belly to back for the first time which we celebrated. He is hitting and surpassing his milestones, one after the other.
I still think of him as my little guy, but looking back on his newborn photos, he has gotten so BIG! He has grown over 4 inches and gained more than 5 pounds since birth. He finally fits into his cloth diapers (which I love using) and has outgrown all of his newborn clothes. Below is Justice now and a flashback to 17 days old, can you believe the changes?!?!
His personality is shining through these days. I can see he has a flair for the dramatic, he is so very curious about the world, he loves faces and being read to. He has even got a little sense of humor coming out lately. His little chuckles melts my heart every time. He has already reached the ‘everything in the mouth’ stage and is now sleeping for a reliable 4 hour stretch at night (although he has taken up fighting sleep big time). Oh, and lets not forget about those beautiful baby blues, he is still holding onto them giving mom lots of hope!
