He hardly sleeps during the day, especially considering he is only 3 months old. He sleeps in spurts at day care for probably a total of like 2 hours. He might take an hour nap in the evening. So maybe he'll sleep for 3 hours total during the day. Then at night he'll sleep for...well...I don't really know how long because I usually have to wake him up to start the day so i can go to work. I think he'd probably sleep for between 10 and 11 hours. I am thinking of trying to feed him bigger feedings during the day so I can cut out one feeding and put him to bed earlier. He currently eats 5 times a day. I feel like 4 times is a little few for 3 months, but maybe it will work.
Not really sure how much he weighs now since we don't go to the doctor till 4 months, but I think he weights about 12.5 lbs since i tried to weigh him on our scale at home.
He talks a lot, making cute little cooing sounds. ;He gives small little squeals and is experimenting with "aahhh." Matthew was never so talkative. Samuel also has very little interest in rolling from his tummy to his back. He just lays on his mat like a sack of potatoes. He doesn't even lift his head or push up. It's very funny, really. When he's on his back he is so active and will sometimes turn to his side. And he can hold his head up well and put some weight on his legs pretty well, too. But apparently tummy time is not so appealing.
Samuel often has a very concerned look on his face. It's just how he always looks if he's just checking out the world. We think it's very cute. But we are a little biased.
I could not be more in love with this wonderful son God has given us. Tim and I were talking last night that perhaps the reason Samuel is so easy is because by the time he is a year (hopefully) we will have a (potentially) needy little girl who is not that much older than him. Perhaps Samuel's temperment is going to be what prevents us from checking ourselves into the psych ward. We love you, Samuel Christopher!
