Our little chubby man is 3 months old! And oh what a chunker he is!
|Pretty sure he's surpassed the size of the lion|
|That's definitely an "enough with the pictures, mom" face.|

We recently took out the exersaucer and let him try it too. He does his best to grab at the toys and occasionally even gets one in his hand and into his mouth. In the past week he has been grabbing our fingers and random toys that we give him and he immediately puts them in his mouth. Of course, I'm afraid this is the beginning of months and months of teething.
Oh, have I mentioned his crazy hair yet? He has the worst cowlick ever. A tuft of hair at the crown of his head refuses to stay put. It sticks straight up despite the number of times we pat it down with water, brush it in different directions, wash it, oil it, etc. It's pretty silly but adorable at the same time.
Declan will sleep anywhere from 4-6 hours straight at night then be up every couple hours after that until 6:30-7am. He even did an 8 hour long stretch one night. We're still hoping that happens again and stays that way soon. Naps are on somewhat of a loose schedule. Some days he sticks to a schedule, and others not so much...which mean some days he naps well and other days he barely naps at all. We'll keep working on it. He just loves being awake and alert when we're around other people or in new surroundings, so sometimes he'll refuse to sleep or will only take 20-30 minute naps just so he doesn't miss anything. Just like his sister!
We're having fun watching Emery and Declan interact a little more this month too. I can't begin to count just how many kisses Declan gets from his sister everyday. It's a lot. Sometimes too many and Declan will let her know! When you have to tell Em to "stop sucking on Declan's toes, just kisses, Em," you know she loves her little brother. Emery will come running to Declan's side to hold his hand if he begins crying in his crib, the carseat, or wherever he may be.
Emery loves talking to us about all the things she will teach her brother when he gets bigger as well. She lights up when she talks of teaching him to go potty on the big toilet, teaching him to eat real food, to play with all of the toys, to talk, sing songs, etc.
