3 months old
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!
I am finally publishing one of my favorite soup recipes. This is fast and easy. I often just throw it in the crock pot when I need a qui...
