Leo- 3 Months Old

Leo is such a smiley baby. He wakes up with insane bed hair and is always found with drool on him thanks to Max's wet kisses. He puts himself to bed during the day for naps but is pretty fussy still in the evenings (darn witching hours). Currently he is up for 60-75 min and then goes down for a nap and this happens on repeat all day long. For naps and bedtime I sing him the Gloria Patri and Doxology and then put his sound machine on. Within a few minutes he finds his thumb and is out. Leo's colic is slowly subsiding and thankfully we have more smiley days than days of crying. I also have started to slowly re-introduce dairy and gluten back into my diet and he seems to be doing well. 

I still have about 8 lbs to go to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight. My mom and I go on a 2 mile walk 3 times a week and every day I do about 20 min of leg and core Pilates at home when Leo is napping.  I am quickly seeing that recovery takes a lot longer after a third pregnancy and there are curves in places I never had before. With all the nursing Leo does it is hard to keep up with staying hydrated but I am trying hard to keep track of how much I am drinking.

Leo's 3 Month Stats

Weight: 14 lbs

Diapers: Size 2

Clothes: 6 months

Eating: Every 2-2.5 hours (nursing only) but praying he will take a bottle of BM again soon

Likes: fans, his brothers, naps, sucking his thumb, bath time and being talked to

Dislikes: Getting his clothes changed, spitting-up, car rides, being over-tired, and loud noises


Leo is the perfect addition to our family and with him being our last biological child I am trying to soak up every minute of him being a baby.
