3 months old!

My sweet baby turned 3 months old yesterday! He weighs 8 pounds now and just started fitting into his 0-3 months clothes. He is smiling at people more now, which is so delightful! When he saw my sister 2 days in a row last week, he had so many smiles for her. It was like he was saying "hey, I remember you from yesterday, we had fun!" He's also started making sweet baby sounds and gurgling now. Up until last week it was mostly grunting sounds. About 2 weeks ago he began to roll over to one side. His new ability scared him a bit at first. He would roll over and then look around like "what the heck just happened." He continues to love mobiles and the fan. When he's on our bed and the fan isn't on, he looks up at it and then looks at us like we broke it. He eats every 4 hours, but if I time our evenings just right, I can get him to do a 6 hour stretch at night! He does really well at night and I pray this continues. After our night nursing session at 10 or 11, I put him in his bassinet and he goes right to sleep on his own I feed him again when he wakes up sometime between 2-4 and I put him right back down and he goes to sleep again.  I've been getting us in a consistent afternoon routine because we are going to transition him to his room in September. We give him a bath every other night and he loves them, I can't wait until he's old enough for bath toys and splashing! It's pretty easy to tell when he's sleepy, he'll start to tug at his ear or grab his hair. if we don't put him down for a nap after that cue, he begins to start fussing at us. If we ignore that he starts crying and it becomes a bit more difficult to get him to sleep. Taking him outside normally instantly calms him, and if we can't go outside, back pats and custom songs from mommy normally work. A few times there was too much stimulation going on and Judah got over tired, he is not a pleasant baby to get to sleep once he reaches that point! One thing we've always been able to count on since we brought him home from the hospital is the baby on chest move. He cannot resist it! If we're tired and he's not, or if he's fussing for absolutely no good reason, we put him on our chest and lean back and we get some sweet peace. Judah's not a big crier and even before he does cry he give us 2 warning shouts to give us time to fix the issue before he starts wailing, isn't that nice of him? The past 2 days he's started really trying to suck his pointer finger. He pushes the pacifier out and inserts his finger all the time now. MrC and my momma aren't having that at all! My ma was like "ohhh no, that's what your momma used to do and we aren't going through that with you Judah!" I didn't stop sucking my finger until I was 13, we're trying to keep Judah from following in his momma's footsteps! I think I'm finished boring y'all with all my sweet baby's development, stay tuned for pictures of his nursery!
