Beckham - 14 Weeks

Such a happy boy! Beckham is smiling all the time now! He smiles at everyone who talks to him now too!

Likes: tickles, talking, being talked to, being greeted happily after naps and in the morning

Dislikes: his last nap around dinner time

What's New in the Last Week: He is squeaking out giggles more often and I'm still waiting for that first real laugh!

Clearly Beckham likes to hold his hands together! It's mostly because he spends most of the day chewing on them!

What a squirmy, chatty boy!!

Beckham - Three Months

Three months old already! He is just getting so big so fast!

Measurements: Yesterday Beckham weighed 13 pounds 14 ounces. I measured him just now as he was napping and he is (approx.) 25 inches long! Yesterday I packed up all his 0-3 month sized clothes and unpacked all the 3-6 month sized clothes and they fit almost perfectly. A few things I've pulled out look a little big but at his rate, they'll fit fine soon! Most of Parker's old clothes are doing ok season wise, especially if he grows this quickly for a while! Parker grew slower, so Beckham may catch up to where Parker was season-wise. It was funny packing up the 0-3 months clothes because he didn't wear sleepers almost at all this summer since it has been so hot...not to mention that he us a little heater! He has pretty much only worn a onesie since he was born. 

Milestones: He started smiling this month and he got in his first giggle! He also rolled over from his belly to his back a few times. I am glad we are getting into some new stages! I love when they get more mobile! He also has started to try to sit up when he is propped up. It's like he's doing little baby crunches! 

He is also babbling quite a bit! I just love his little chattering!

Schedule: His schedule hasn't really changed since his two month update. He wakes up around 7:30 and I feed him. He is usually only awake about an hour and a half and then goes back down for a short 30-45 minute nap. He eats again at 10:30 and then naps around noon. He eats around 1:30 and naps about 3. He east again around 4:30 and naps during our dinner time, around 5:30. I feed him again around 7:30 and he goes to bed. He usually wakes up between 1 and 2:30 and when I'm lucky he sleeps til 7:30 but still most times he wakes up about 4:30. Occasionally he skips the late morning feed even if he stirs a little bit. 

He is really good at going to sleep on his own. I always lay him down awake; at naps he usually needs a pacifier to fall asleep but at night time he hardly ever needs it. I still swaddle him for naps and bedtime. I hope he still does this well once he is out of the swaddle!

His naps in his crib have gotten longer too. When I first started putting him in his crib for naps he only napped about 30 minutes. Now he naps 40, 45 minutes and sometimes longer. He usually needs one nap in his swing or rock and play after I get him out of his crib since he can't sleep that long in it. 

Beckham - 13 Weeks

13 weeks old!! I didn't have time to update yesterday so I will also update again because today he is also officially 3 months old!

Likes: being talked to, being tickled, funny noises, watching everything going on around him, chewing his hands nonstop

Dislikes: being tired, being ignored ;)

What's new in the Last Week: He giggled the slightest giggle on Sunday! 

I figured out how to make a sling from a blanket if needed!

Such a cute baby :)

Beckham - 12 Weeks

My little bunny is 12 weeks old today! Today he weighed 12 lb 9 oz and ate 7 ounces!! What?!?  Whenever I go line dancing or even on Saturday when Clint and I went to a wedding, I have been leaving 4 ounce bottles for him. Everyone that has fed him a bottle seems to think he's fine though! Hardly any spit up and not fussing so I think he's ok. I may up it to 5 oz. bottles though. I will probably do another weight check on Wednesday just to see. I just can't believe he can eat that much, especially when I only feed him for 10 minutes or less. Otherwise he spits up so much. He gets mad at me though when I don't let him eat for too long. Sorry dude. I don't want to change both of our clothes every time you eat!

Likes: being talked to, being sat up, chewing his hands until they're soggy, chewing on anything really, drooling, spitting up elevntymillion times a day

Dislikes: being laid down before he gets swaddled (once you get him wrapped up, he calms down and is like "aaaahhhh")

What's New in the Last Week: He is definitely realizing that there are things for him to grab! When he is under his jungle gym, he looks at the things hanging and wants to grab them so bad! He still hasn't laughed but I am so sure it will be soon! He grins so big and sighs like that laugh is right there but won't come out!

He realized he had hair back there! I loved when Parker did this :) 

He started in the middle of the he wiggled to the end, I have no idea!

Beckham - 11 Weeks

My happy little boy is 11 weeks old!
Likes: smiling, being tickled, looking at his feet, chewing on things especially his hands, being swaddled
Dislikes: staying awake when he's tired

What's New in the Last Week: He's rolled over a couple times previously but in the last week he has rolled over several times!

He's so much more alert! (I know I said that last week.)

Trying to get his weekly picture is much more challenging than when I did Parker's!

such a cutie :)
