Sweet Baby Caleb!

I can't believe this sweet baby is already 3 months old! This past month has been an absolute blast!!! For those of you who didn't know weeks 3 to about 9 Caleb cried for 4-6 hours a day, nonstop. There was nothing we or anyone could do to soothe this child. Most of his crying was caused by some severe constipation issues that caused him tremendous pain and not to be able to sleep. It was absolutely emotionally and physically draining. But this last month he has started sleeping and eating on a schedule and taking naps that last more then 10 minutes. It has been absolutely FABULOUS and we are having so much fun with this little guy.
-Weights 13.5 pounds (according to the bathroom scale)
-Sleeps 7-8 hours at night
-taking 1-2 hour naps
-coos all the time
-smiles when you whistle at him
-loves the bathtub still
-rolled over once, but it scared him half to death so I don't think it will be happening again anytime soon
-tries to stand up when you hold him
-always wants to be facing out where he can see everything
-eating 4-6ounces of formula with a tablespoon of rice cereal every 3-4 hours


  1. He is beautiful Heidi! Oh how those newborns can test our patience but it's all worth it when they start reacting to your smiles and love. When Jackson would not stop crying, I kept telling myself, Heavenly Father knows I can handle this. He sent Jackson to me for a reason. I can do this. You just wait, he'll get more and more fun!

  2. He is getting so big Heidi! I cannot believe he is already three months old! How time flies. Glad he is calming down and not crying as often. The older they get the more fun the become! But enjoy it while he is so small, because they grow so fast!
