Jacob turns 3 months old

Three months old!? Where is the time going?

Everyone who told us this time in our baby's life will just fly on by was not lying. As cliche as it sounds, it seems like just yesterday Jacob was coming home, sleeping in the Pack N Play for the first time and staring at simple, stationary objects the best he could with heavily crossed eyes.

Now he's sleeping throughout the night on his stomach in a crib in his own room, following colorful moving objects with his strengthened eye muscles and developing a cute personality consisting of smiles, coos and pseudo giggles. He loves to stare at the bright colors from the TV and his toys.

In three months, he's doubled his birth weight and grown three inches. He's now able to use his hands to calm himself, though he still relies heavily on us to soothe him with a passy. He also has gained much more noticeably blond hair (with a tint of red), but he's still a fairly bald baby.

It's amazing how at this age every day makes a big difference. That being said, we're eager to see what changes the next month brings!
