Mr. Three Months.

Is this even possible? My baby is actually 14 weeks old today, so I'm a little behind with this post. Eli is growing like a weed, and learning new things every day. He really likes his play mat now, and kicks constantly and grabs at his toys and links. He can also roll over from front to back and back to front. He loves to roll from back to front, but then he hates being on his belly and fusses until he finally flips himself over or I go rescue him.
He's giggled once or twice, but hasn't been too interested in doing it again. Guess his parents aren't too funny. He does coo and gab a lot, and throws some high-pitched squeals in there every now and then. I used to be able to get him to talk, but now his daddy has the touch. Guess E is tired of hearing my voice all day every day.
These pics are out of order, but this was the last shot right before he started fussing and took a huge afternoon nap. Everyone used to think he looked just like my baby pics, but now they say he is looking like his daddy.
He's a hand eater. He loves gnawing on his fingers, grabbing toys, batting at objects, and loves trying to chew on his teething toys. He is wearing 3 mo. clothing, but can't wear many footed things b/c he is too tall for them.
Even though he's not laughing too much, he is beaming those gummy smiles at us all the time. Usually he hams it up right after his naps; he'll take a break from eating just to stare at me and smile.
He's eating about 5-6 ounces every 3 1/2 - 4 hours. He is still bf throughout the day, but we give him a bedtime bottle of formula in hopes of him sleeping a little longer since it takes longer to digest.
His sleep is all over the place. Lately he's been waking up a couple of times a night, just to be cuddled and once to eat. Last night, he slept from 10:30 - 5:30; he ate, and slept again until 9. It was fantastic.
He now wants to be sitting or "standing" in someone's arms. He likes to face out so he can see what's going on. He still has all his fine blonde hair from his newborn days, and we can tell it's getting a little longer since it no longer sticks straight up after a bath. I'm still dreading the day it may fall out.

Last, his little milia on his button nose is almost completely gone, but his little storkbites on his face are still hanging out. Some people still ask about them, but I don't even notice them anymore. Why? Because he's perfect!
