He’s the third kid so I’m supposed to be a little late on these updates right? Lol life is crazy.

Our sweet Max is thriving in life. He’s huge. Biggest one of my kids yet and at three months barely fits in three month clothing. I love every single roll on that sweet kids body.

This month he climbed a mountain with me. I carried all 13.5 pounds of him up and down it and thought I might die, but we powered through. We even had a nursing session at the top. It was pretty sweet.

Halloween was so fun dressing a baby up. He got to be three different things: Superman, a giraffe and a skeleton.

I’m enjoying him so much more these days. He’s awake more, gives the biggest pirate smiles and the best snuggles. This boy loves his momma. No belly laughs yet. I’m pretty sure I spend countless hours every day doing the dumbest stuff trying my hardest to get a good laugh out of him but nothing yet.

Big brother and big sister are still pretty in love with him. Jay is so helpful with him and Max literally lights up when Jay walks in the room. Not too much longer till they are getting into trouble together I’m sure.

Sleep

We still aren’t getting much. Sleep is not Max’s strong suite. He refuses to take a nap in his bed during the day for longer than about 20 -30 minutes. I can usually get about 30-40 minutes if I put him in his swing, the car, or a stroller and we are moving.

Night time is a little better. He loves our bed time routine of bath, bottle/boob, books, and bed. Dino and I have figured out how to split this between the two of us and Dino gives him his bedtime bottle while I two bigger ones to sleep. Once I get Max down he will usually sleep from about 7:30 – 12:30 a.m. After that it’s a free for all. We never know. He was only waking up once but now it’s pretty much every hour from 12:30-7:30 đŸ˜© I remember with both my other kids the four month sleep regression so I’m. It super concerned about his schedule being perfect till we get through that but I am so tired. Lol. I’ve resorted to trying to give him positive affirmations at night like ‘Max you are going to sleep so good tonight!’ Lol they aren’t working. Until then I’ll enjoy the extra around the clock snuggles.

Food

Max has no trouble eating! Our little chunk is packing the pounds on quite nicely. He almost completely out of 3 Month clothes. We are loving his thick thighs and short little legs.

I’ve transitioned more to formula than I had planned over this month. After our road trip a couple weeks ago my supply dropped a lot. Thankfully I was able to get most of it back however Max decided he didn’t like to wait very long for my letdown to come in and out of frustration for both of us I resorted to pumping in a bottle and formula. Currently I’m pumping about three times a day. He gets formula and breast milk via a bottle and I’ve been nursing in the middle of the night. He’s very particular on his eating habits and likes everyone quiet while he nurses so you can imagine how difficult this can be in our house, lol.
