To Eric James - 3 Month Letter

My Dearest Eric James,

Here we are again, another month has gone by and you are still growing like a weed.  We have had a very busy month and you have been my trooper the whole way through.

We started out the month recovering from our big road trip West with the bests and tried to get back into our routine.  You had started sleeping longer stretches on that trip and we wanted to keep that up once we got home, and luckily, you did just that.  You are doing amazing with sleeping through the night!  You average 12 hours a night!  Now just like your big bother, you sleep through the night but hate to nap.  We complain, but don't really mean it because you will nap if we hold you.  We will totally take all night sleeping rather then naps all day in our arms.  Mima might say otherwise, but really who doesn't love a snuggly baby? LOL.

You are still loving to eat as well.  You are now consistently eating 6 ounces every 3 hours and 7 hours for your first and last bottles of the day.  You don't let us miss a feeding but you are growing big and strong because of it.  This month we have tried rice cereal in a bottle a couple of times after the recommendation came from your doctor.  You have a terrible witching hour, from 4-7 every night, and she thought that a little cereal might help you with that.  You aren't really a huge fan yet, but I'm sure in no time you will be.

This month you got to meet everyone from Mommy's side of the family as we had a memorial for Great Grandpa.  You loved all of the attention and they all loved meeting you as well.  You are the youngest of all the great grandkids and everyone loved snuggling you.  I am glad that you got to meet my Grandpa before he passed away.  Him and your brother had such a special bond and I'm sure it would have been the same with you had you both had the time.

I went back to work at the end of this month and I think we are all doing well with it.  You go to Mima's house each morning with your brother and she is such a big help to us.  She is helping get you in a routine and sending me pictures all day long, which help me feel better about going back to work.

You are still loving baths and can't take long enough ones.  You are one sweaty boy, so you get baths just as often as your big bro.  You love the warm water and love relaxing.

We can't believe how fast you are growing but love watching every second of it.  I hope you always remember how much we love you and how much you complete our family.
