Ethan turned three months old last week. It is hard to believe - they really do grow up too fast! It seems like ages ago that I gave birth, yet I still don't know how three months have past already either. Since last month, he has gained about 11 ozs, to weigh in at around 13 lbs, 6 ozs, which is in the 50th-75th percentile. He grew an additional two inches from his previous length of 23 inches, to a length of 25 inches now, which is in the 75th-90th percentile. Such a tall boy now! :) And I am pretty sure he is currently in a growth spurt, as all he wants to do is eat and sleep, even more than usual, haha. :) As I type, he just passed out during tummy time, which NEVER happens and he took a 1.5+ hour nap today, which also never happens anymore! His head circumference has also increased to 41 cm, which is also in the 50th percentile. This month he received a special surprise on his 3-month birthday - a new cousin! Rachel Aimee was born June 3rd at 9:46 am to my sister, Katie, and her husband, Mike. She was 8 lbs, 1.6 ozs and 20.75" long.
It's amazing what a month can bring for an infant. He now flashes hundreds of smiles a day and just last week had his first true laugh while I was changing him to get ready for bed. He has been able to roll from his stomach to his back for over a month now, but is still working on going from his back to his stomach. He did it once last week (which unfortunately everyone missed - we only know he did it because he was on his back, and then next time we looked he was on his tummy!), but has yet to make it happen again. He easily gets on to his side both ways, but then stops there. :( He is soooo close! I think he is just waiting for his daddy to get home from Germany. :) He loves looking into the mirror, staring at the cute boy he sees. :) He is constantly drooling and he has also discovered his hands and fingers, and LOVES chewing on them. It will definitely not be long before those teeth pop in!
Below is a pic of Ethan at three months, once again wearing a 12-month onesie. He hasn't changed quite as much this past month, but is still getting cuter by the day! ;)
