Beau is 3 Months Old!

Slow down, baby boy! I feel like he is aging twice as quickly as his big brother did! Here is a snapshot of Beau at three months:

  • He loves to take showers and prefers them to baths.
  • He loves to be held, especially up high with his chest against your shoulder so that he can see what's going on.
  • He doesn't want to miss a thing. He can be sound asleep but he hears my bed creak or Remy ask a question and his eyes pop open.
  • He is very vocal. He likes to shout and grunt and whine and generally let us know when things aren't up to his standards. 
  • He is as mesmerized by the TV as Remy was at his age.
  • He has started to handle and play with toys (play meaning jostle them around and maybe chew on them a bit.)
  • He seems to be teething but I don't see any teeth yet.
  • He is very curious about people and loves to be talked to. His serious expression will transform into a gorgeous smile when someone takes the time to talk to him.  
  • Some of his favorite things: Remy's baby talk, Mommo's voice, Daddy's "jiggle-jiggle" game.  
  • He has lost all of the hair he was born with except for a big patch along his neck that we call his mullet.
  • He has a funny laugh. It's not like Remy's gasping laugh, it's more like a barking laugh.  
  • He's is getting really good at holding his head up but he still can't sit up.  
  • He rolled over onto his belly for the first time today. Better to lick the blanket he was lying on.  It's all about motivation.  
  • He has a bashful streak. He tends to duck his chin and look at you from under his eyelashes with a slow, sweet smile on his face. It's killer.
