3 months old

Well, Holden turned 3 months on the 1st. I am a little behind. And actually he will be 14 weeks this Thursday. And as you can see he is a big boy and growing at a rapid pace. He is roughly 15 pounds. That is me weighing with him on our home scale. And he is constantly standing in our laps. I keep promising a picture of it. I will post one soon. He just holds our thumbs and stands there until his legs wear out. He is so strong! Not that I really know what a 3 month baby SHOULD be doing, but physically he really does seem to be ahead of the gang. And of course, that is just coming from the mama. :) He is such a happy baby and just smiling all the time. Catching a smile on camera is still pretty tricky. He is so mesmerized by the green light before the camera flashes, that he ends up losing the smile and furrowing his brows. Catching a smile on camera is definitely a 2 person job and then, still a challenge.
Holden has been to the church nursery for the past 2 weeks now. The volunteers love him, feed him and cuddle him while he sleeps. So he really enjoys his time there. I’m sure he will be making baby friends in no time. We moved him to his bedroom a couple of weeks ago because he seemed to be sleeping so well. In a past blog, I bragged on him sleeping 10 hours and then he stopped. Some nights he goes down at 10:30pm and then others, such as last night, he went down at midnight. So he wakes up anywhere between 5:00am and 7:30am. We need to get on a more regular schedule. I haven’t been working too hard on that, but I need to. But he is sleeping through the night in his own bed and in his own room.
Last night I was laughing at Holden because he was talking to my dad on the phone. It’s just funny to watch a baby “talk”. And then Holden started giggling because he was watching me laugh, which in turn made me laugh even harder, which made his giggle turn more into a laugh. Have I mentioned how much fun we are having?!
I guess that is the latest on our sweet baby boy. I tell him daily what a blessing he is and I wonder if he will EVER even be able to remotely comprehend the joy he has brought to our lives. Maybe in 25+ years when he has children of his own. So until then, I will just have to tell him over and over again.
And here are some recent pictures . . .

Ahh he's reading the book we gave him. Give him about 2 years and he'll be helping turn the pages :-) The little tushie pic is too cute! I can't believe he's already 3 months.
