It’s hard to believe it but our little guy is three months old today. That’s a quarter of his first year. It’s hard to believe how many changes we’ve seen in three months. Owen now likes to sit up with help. He loves to be held looking out and being bounced. Just recently his play mat has become fun because he can stare at himself in the mirror that is on it. He is still a super sleeper and we are grateful for the 8-11 hours of sleep he gets every night. Because he is such a good night time sleeper, Owen is more of a cat napper during the day. He usually only sleeps for about a half hour at time during the day. During these naps, I make mad dashes around the house, trying to take care of my own personal do list and chores. Now that I’m back to work, I have a daily commitments that take me out of the house 5 out of 7 days of the week. The busy pace of my life is back in full swing and Owen is along for the ride. For the most part, Owen is an easy tag-a-long, but he has his moments. This weekend was one of them when he was just fussy and hungry all the time. It made being out and about a bit hard. Thankfully most people are understanding. Owen is weighing in about 13.6lbs of last night and let me tell you, my arms can tell that he is putting on weight. All that bouncing really catches up with me! Parenting has been such a mixed bag for me. There are moments and even days where I think it’s a pretty easy gig (and with one kid I know it really is), but then there are moments and days that are harder than others. It’s difficult when Owen is in a mood where he just wants to be held and bounced and I want my arms back. However, I am trying not to race through these moments. Even if fussiness happens, he will only be this size for so long. Someday he will be too big to be in my arms, so I will enjoy this season while I am in it. Ups and downs!
