3 Month Update

Height: 25" (these measurements are all based on my calculations)
Weight:  13.2 lbs
Head Circumference: 16"
Vision: You can definitely see more than 2 feet in front of you now. I find you often times watching the TV or the fan spin in circles. I don't know how clear it is, but you can see colors and shadows fairly well.
Movement: You are starting to use those legs to push you places when you are laying on the floor or the bed. It is almost like you are trying to do a backbend without using your hands. Our days of leaving you on the bed or the changing table for a second are over! You also are sucking your fingers more than you take your pacifier. For the most part its the pointer and middle finger, but you like to change it up. You can semi roll over. When put on your stomach you push yourself to your side. Then several minutes later you will roll to your back.
Eating Habits/New Foods: You are still eating every 3 hours during the day. Every 6 hours at night. We tried giving you a bottle of 6 ounces of milk and you gulped it down with no problem. I am pretty sure you are still eating 3 ounces though from the boob each feeding. Your dad has let you taste syrup, chocolate, and a lemon. You did not like the lemon and made the funniest faces. We can't wait till you start eating real food. I am especially excited to get some pasta in your mouth! :)
Sleeping Patterns: You are starting to stay awake more during the day. You usually wake up around 9. You nap for an hour around noon, 4, & 8 depending on what is going on that day. We are only bathing you every other day so after your bath at 9 o'clock we starting winding down for bed. Your last feeding is still between 11 and 12 pm and that keeps you happy till 6 am.
Sounds/Words: You are a talking machine. I wish we knew what all your sounds meant, but I love to sit and listen to you talk to us. We are going to start integrating some sign language in this month. Hopefully it will help us communicate better before you start talking.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You continued your swimming adventures this month. While in the keys we dunked you under water for the first time. You did awesome! No choking or anything. You definitely had a startled look on your face, but other than that it was great! I am starting to put water in your face during bath time to get you used to it. You also are getting great at kicking your legs while sitting in your float in the pool.
-This is not really an accomplishment, but you did get your first sunburn this month. You were shaded the entire time at the pool, but I guess the reflection off the concrete burned the one side of your body. You didn't seem to mind though. It is just the beginning of your bathingsuit tan. :)
-You also accomplished a semi roll over from stomach to back.
New Friends I've made: No new young friends this month, but we are anxiously awaiting our new friend Gannon's arrival(Sara Greenfield's baby). He should be here by the time you are 4 months old!
Places you went/Adventures: This month we spent a week in the Keys for the Annual Lobster trip. On the way down we stopped in Jupiter and Miami for the night to meet Aunt Jackie, Auntie Joyce, and the Shikany family. While in the keys, we went out to lunch at Lazy Days, happy hour at Wahoo's, dinner at Senor Frijoles, and shopped at the World Wide Sportsman. Grammy and I alternated days to watch you so the other could go out on the boat. You had a great week in the keys! Also we spent a weekend at the Sawgrass Marriott for daddy's annual work conference. We showed you off to all his co-workers and took you to the Suns game where you got to sit in the skybox. July was a great month of traveling and fun in the sun!
