3 months old!

Carson turned 3 months old on Friday. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. It seems like yesterday he was a "tiny" 8 lbs 7 oz...and today, wow. I don't even know how much he weighs but he's big. He's wearing 3-6 months clothes and they fit well. So needless to say, he likes to eat...and eat well. I like having a baby with sweet rolls though. They are so sqeezable :) He is right on track developmentally and seems to start to do new things every couple of days. So far, he can roll over from tummy to back, hold his head up, smile and laugh (he's been doing that for a while), grab onto toys hanging from his bouncy seat or play mat, hold his paci, follow you around the room with his eyes and sit up in the bumbo. He's been sleeping through the night for a little while, but I still haven't moved him to his room. I think I'm just afraid he'll wake up and I don't want to have to go down the hall to get him or soothe him haha. Maybe this week he'll make the big move.

He still loves his brother...most days. Brody likes to get above him and talk to him and Carson just smiles. I think they already have a pretty special bond. There are times that he gets scared of Brody's umm...enthusiasm and gets upset. But most days, they are best buddies. I can't wait to watch them interact more and more over the coming months.

A Day in the Life

Here are some photos of the sweet faces and things I see everyday. A little glimpse into our days around the house.

"Brody, don't drive the car on your brother."

We do puzzles...a lot. Brody is a pro now.

My little Who from Whoville.

Precious baby feet.

Very busy little feet.

Sweet baby thighs.
Pudgy little hands

We play with LOTS of cars. All day.

And mama steps on a lot of cars.

We have unhappy moments.

And sweet smiley moments.

"Brody, don't lay on your brother."

As you can see, I stay very busy with these two. Brody loves to have playmates these days. He wants someone to color, drive or throw the ball with him constantly. I can't wait for Carson to be old enough to be his best friend and playmate. But until then, I don't mind filling in :) But when Daddy gets home at night, Brody wants no one but him. He could wrestle, tickle and play for hours with his daddy. Carson is really starting to love his brother. When Brody doesn't know I'm watching, I see him sitting just talking to Carson and Carson just smiles at him. I think they understand each other.
