At 3 months, Andrew weighed 12 pounds, 8 ounces and was 24.25 inches long. He's a long skinny boy! His weight is tracking right along the 25%. It's so empowering knowing it's my body and my milk helping him grow. I'm still limiting my dairy, but it seems like he can tolerate cheeses and baked dairy. Last weekend I ate icecream, and man, back to horrible, painful crying!
In terms of diapers, we're still squeezing into size 1. He really should probably be in size 2, but we're using our supply up. And heck, they're not leaking :) He's wearing size 3 month clothing (well he was, but now at 3.5 months has graduated to size 6 months).
I love baby smiles. He's started to have the social smile and it's just so heart warming.
In terms of favorite things, I really think it's eating. This boy loves to eat. Fortunately for me, but not really, he didn't really do any reverse cycling when I went back to work. He's sleeping about 6-8 hours at night and wakes once to eat. That would be nice if I was able to pump enough milk at work to compensate for what he eats at home. So since he's not tolerating dairy and he turned his nose up when we tried hypoallergenic formula once, I'm either staying up late or waking up in the middle of the night to add in a pumping session. So far I've been able to keep up. I'm not going to lie though, it's exhausting.
Bri has started to become jealous. Only I can brush her teeth, only I can get her out of the car, only I can put her to bed. She's overall very good with the baby. She likes to use his stomach as a drum though... I'm really curious to find out how she reacts once he starts moving and trying to play with her toys.
