3 months old

Time for his three month photo shoot.  Aaron's out of town for a little while, he's in Pennsylvania helping his boss campaign for reelection.  Although we miss him tremendously we're just hoping for a win in next week's election.  While Aaron's out of town, my Mom was kind enough to take a a coupe of weeks off work and come help me with Nate.  This past Wednesday we celebrated his three month birthday.  It was one of those horrible mornings, starting with a flat tire in the pouring rain while I was wearing a skirt suit and heels.  But spending a few minutes taking these pictures reminded me how lucky we are to have such a happy little guy.

He is still growing but he seems to have slowed a bit, falling closer to the 60th percentile in weight.  He is still sleeping like a champ, typically 10-12 hours every night.  Aaron and I are convinced we're in for some major sleep deprivation with our second child because there's no way we can get this lucky again.

Sadly, three months old means the end of my maternity leave.  I head back to work full time on November 1st.  There have been a lot of tears over here and none of them from Nate.  We were fortunate to find a daycare opening in the same daycare as our good friends so we feel very comfortable and confident that we're leaving Nate in good hands.  But that won't stop me from missing our days together!

  1. I love how he is trying to stand up in the 2nd photo. Such strong little legs!! Please tell me that you gave him a 'tummy funny' after this photo shoot. Look at that handsome little face & absolutely lovable belly! I hope your 1st week back was a great one, sissy!!!
