Happy 3 Months to our little Jonah!
Height and Weight: No official doctor's appointment at 3 months, but based on me holding him while standing on our scale and subtracting my weight, he weighs about 12 1/2 pounds. And he's way too wiggly for me to measure length, so we'll get that next month.
Sleep: The last week has been pretty awful! He'd been doing so well, consistently going to bed around 9, waking up for a feeding between 1 and 2, and then again around 5. But the last week, he's been waking up 3 or 4 times, and the other night he woke up at 4:30 after finishing eating at 3:30, but when I tried to feed him, he just fell asleep and then cried when I put him back in the bassinet. Luke ended up taking him down to the basement, where he was awake until 6. I'm praying we can get back down to one wake up a night!

He is a very inconsistent napper, but I think that's partially my fault for not really putting him into any kind of routine. He does not sleep well when we're out and about, and a lot of days he will just take little cat naps throughout the day and be really fussy during his awake periods (though I have no idea what the root of the fussiness is at this point). Just this week, I've been trying to focus on his patterns more so I can get him into a routine and maybe get him to nap consistently.
Diapers/Clothing: I went through his clothes over the weekend and took out all the little hats, as well as the 0-3 month sleepers. Even the 3 month sleepers are getting a little snug. But if a 3 month outfit doesn't have footies, he still fits it pretty well. He's still in size 1 diapers, but I have a feeling it won't be too much longer till we're switching those out!

Likes: Still seems to like bath time, especially when we're pouring water over him. If he's fussy prior to going in the bath, he'll start crying once he's been in for a little while. Likes having lots of attention after he's had a good stretch of sleep and wakes up happy. Sometimes a walk outside can help him stop crying, especially in the evenings. And of course loves to eat!
Dislikes: He really dislikes the transition from the bathtub to the towel- poor kid screams bloody murder. Doesn't like to be on his tummy. Does not like dirty diapers.
