3 months old

That's right! Micah is three month old today! I can hardly believe how quickly the time has passed.

Our sweet little boy is easy-going and quick to give smiles. He is always happy when someone stops long enough to pay attention to him and will reward them with coos and joy.

Great example... in the grocery store yesterday with all three kids, I was not about to abandon my entire cart full when Micah started fussing. Having grabbed our final item, we quickly unloaded the food onto the conveyer belt, but the fact that Micah could no longer see me made him really start crying.

A sweet lady passing by with her teenage kids caught his eye and he stopped crying. She realized that he was watching her carefully, so she and her two kids took a few minutes out of their busy shopping trip to entertain my baby while I unloaded groceries.

Micah is not a fan on tummy time, though he tolerates it much better when Joshua joins him on the floor (which is every time he can). He seems to have a strong neck to me and loves to stand on my lap (with support, of coarse).

We are still working on sleep with this boy. He is getting better, slowly. This past week it has started to feel like he wants a little more structure, so when the kids head back to school next week (after two weeks off) I'm going to work on scheduling his naps more. At night, he is so much better at sleeping in his bassinet next to the bed. I can tell we are going to have to be much more planned and deliberate about sleep training this baby.

Micah is such a wonderful addition to our family. He has cuddled his way into our hearts and I can hardly image life without him!

Micah is 10 weeks old!

Micah turned 10 weeks old yesterday! I am amazed at how quickly the time has gone. Here is a picture of him prepared for a crisp autumn morning walk to take the big kids to school.

Ready for a crisp autumn morning walk to school.
He had his first doctor's visit since he was born. And he got his first jabs (shots) for immunizations. Everything looks great, including his heart and hips (which they seem to pay close attention to in his exam).

Here are his updated stats:
   ~ Weigh: 5.560kg (12lb 5.5oz) - 35 percentile
   ~ Height: 61cm (24 inches) - 80 percentile

He is a tall, but little guy (I can hardly believe he is already 2 feet tall). He wears a great double chin, but is still working on gaining all his leg rolls.

Joshua and Abigail continue to dote on their little brother, and he rewards them with wonderful smiles. He has Joshua's expressions - sometimes he reminds me so much of Joshua. But then he smiles and looks so much like Abigail. Needless to say he looks like his big brother and big sister.

Micah has added wonderful joy to our family! We are excited about the years to come!
