Ephraim at 3 months


I cannot get enough of Ephraim Luke and his sweet smiles. He has made us so happy these past three months. He is a true mama’s boy, and I savor all of the snuggling and closeness. The balding and cradle cap are really unfortunate at this baby stage, but E is still as cute as ever. My mom has always said that the 3-month age is her favorite, and I might have to agree with her. They are still so tiny, but they are interacting and smiling at everyone. Here’s to hoping this month goes by a little slower!

3 Month Stats

Weight: 13 pounds, 8 ounces

Length: around 24 inches

Eating: Nursing exclusively—every 3 hours during the day. I feed him at about 11 pm, and usually he doesn’t wake until 4 or 5. He is spitting up less, thank goodness.

Bedtime: We swaddle him for the night when we go to bed at about 11:30 pm.

Awake: He’s been sleeping from his early morning feeding until about 8, but it depends on if his big brother’s voice rouses him.

Naps: He sleeps in between each feeding (in my arms). I try to set him down, but he either wakes up immediately, or within 10 minutes. Naps are getting shorter as he is more awake and alert during the day :)

Diapers: Size 1, about to move up to 2s soon

Clothes: 3 months in onesies and sleepers, but he’s going to outgrow them fast.

Favorites: Hanging out in the bouncy chair, nuzzling his face into the crook of my arm to sleep, grabbing onto my hair. He loves his paci for napping, but he doesn’t sleep with it at night because he still has trouble keeping it in his mouth.

Latest Tricks: He loves standing up and putting weight on his legs. He has started chomping down on his fingers or gnawing on my thumb while drooling everywhere. If he gets upset about something, his bottom lip sticks out hilariously far (I have got to get “The Lip” on camera one of these days!)

And for comparison’s sake, here is his big brother at the same age. Nolan was skinnier, had more hair, and darker eyes :)
