Colton 3 months!

Age: 3 months

Stats: 10 lbs 9 oz and 23 in long

Clothes: FINALLY transitioned to 0-3 month clothes but most 3 month clothes are too big! 

Diapers:  Size 1 - he never even fit into NB diapers! We love Pampers Swaddlers and have tried Huggies and they are too small and he leaks right through them! But we will need to start transitioning to size 2 soon!

Hair Color & Eye Color: Still blonde hair [it's starting to get a little darker] and blue eyes [hoping these stay!]

Eating: He's on Hypoallergenic formula because he's allergic to milk. So he eats the Rolls Royce of formula - Enfamil Nutramigen. EXPPPENNN-SIIVE! He eats about 4 oz every 2 hrs! Hoping to chunk him up since he hasn't been gaining enough weight

Sleeping: He's always been a good sleeper [thank God!] and sleeps about 7-9 hours a night in his Rock N Play! **STILL SLEEPING GREAT! But he's SUPER fussy when you first put him down. But, once he's asleep, he stays asleep!

Favorite Activities/Things: He still loves baths and his wub! He also loves sitting in his bumbo and watching Baby Einstein! 

Favorite Words: Babbling! He "talks" all the time!

Least Favorite Activities/Things: Still hates being cold, getting his diaper & clothes changed. We try tummy time on the boppy and on his activity mat, but he still hates them both.

Favorite Moment: He seems to be outgrowing his colic [THANK GOD!] and has progressively been happier and happier. Which makes this momma estatic! We also have gotten to FaceTime with my dad a few times [My brothers and I bought him an iPad in December] and we love being able to see Grandpa all the time! 

Least Favorite Moment: He started daycare about 2 weeks ago because I went back to work [first day back since October!] He seems to like it, but this momma is miserable without him all day! But, I love his smiles when I pick him up every afternoon! Also, he's still having feeding issues and we now have to see a Gastroenterologist for his lack of weight gain. :(

Other Milestones: Getting stronger - keeps his head up. Has finally discovered his hands and loves eating them. He hasn't discovered his feet yet, but I think he will soon. Hubs made him laugh for the first time last week, but he's only done it a few times.


  1. Goodness he is just so handsome! I hope he gets his feeding/weight gain issues resolved. I'm sure that's not an easy thing for you to deal with...

  2. Your little man is adorable! I love the onesies, what a great idea, and the monkey is too cute! My hormones are officially in overdrive...

  3. He keeps on getting cuter and cuter!! :) Pretty blue eyes!

  4. What a little cutie!! I love all of his different expressions!

  5. What a little stud muffin! Glad his colic is calming down. I bet those afternoon smiles are to die for :)

  6. Such a cutie! I hate he's having all the food issues hopefully it's nothing major. Have you checked him for tongue tie? I'm not sure if it matters for bottle babies but I know it makes a huge difference in breastfeeding and working the tongue.

    Glad the colic is chilling man I hated Colic.

  7. Oh my gosh, his hair, I DIE, so cute!!! I have heard so much about Pampers vs. Huggies and I have no idea which one to choose! I guess I'll just have to try both and see what works best for us. Glad he is sleeping well and that the colic is getting better. He's adorbs. :-)

  8. ahhhhhh look at those smiles and awesome hair! Going back to work is hard...but summer break will be here before you know it!

  9. Toooo cute! And that hairdo - just adorable!!! :)

  10. He is so adorable!! Those month stickers are too cute!
