David at 3 months old

We continue to marvel at the changes our little man makes on a daily basis, and I continue to struggle with the things I want to get done versus the inherent limitations of a 24-hour day. Even my blogging has gone by the wayside of late (as a few of you have reminded me). I guess David is just too much fun to hang out with these days. I can scrapbook/garden/read/whatever later. But David won't be a baby for long. Trying my best to savor these moments, the good and the bad.

In light of my lack of updates lately, I thought I'd list some of our observations of David at 3 months. But first, check this out:

Can you tell the difference between David and his daddy? That's Cory on the left at 3 months, David on the right at 3 months and 3 days. No doubt on the paternity of this one, not that there ever was a question, LOL. Cory, you ARE the father! Tee hee.

Back to our list:

  1. His eyes are getting darker (but are still blue) and his hair is getting lighter (more blond than brown, though both are still sprouting from his noggin). We know, this will probably continue to change for some time.

  2. He is trying very hard to roll over. Has made it as far as to his side, but has stalled there. Which is fine with me. All in due time.

  3. Tummy time is no longer the torture session it once was. He actually enjoys looking about from that vantage. And I love seeing his adorably crinkled forehead (see photo above).

  4. He pouts when I sing, "the cheese stands alone" from The Farmer in the Dell. I would think this coincidence, but he has done it more than once. I wonder if he will be a social worker. Or maybe a Democrat. He just doesn't like that lonely cheese standing on its own.

  5. He LOVES to chew on his hands, and has begun using this technique to soothe himself.

  6. He has almost completely given up his paci in favor of #5.

  7. Cory can make him giggle pretty consistently. He has yet to really do so for me.

  8. David continues to adore bath time. He has never cried in the tub, not even once.

  9. He is a drool machine, leading us to believe that tooth-sprouting time is not too far off in the future. No signs of any yet as far as I can tell.

  10. Since I typed #6, a tired & cranky Mr. David just cried until I gave him his paci, so cancel that one.

  11. He is trying to reach for things, although his aim is a little off. He loves to hold onto objects, his current favorite being a crinkly blue elephant toy rattle. It looks like he's full-on hugging it, which I realize he's not. Cute, just the same.

  12. He still loves to be carried over the shoulder. He looks about with even more purpose and head control than ever. To counterbalance the weight of his head looking about, he now thrusts his arms behind him straight at the elbows as he leans his chest against your shoulder. This is a pose we like to call "ski jump arms".

  13. As the days continue to fly by, I've begun to forget how we managed without him.

Happy Sunday, all!
