It's been a little over 3 months since our baby boy has joined our lives. I feel like I've known this little guy for ages, but nope, it's only been a quarter of a year.
Over the past months, my baby boy has learned so much, it amazes me. Think about it, babies come into this world with very little programmed in their brains. My baby was born with the instincts to eat, cry, poop, and had limited use of his senses. These days, Lonnie knows how to shake a rattle, grab onto mommy's hair, tickle daddy's belly, kick us while we change him. He even knows how to giggle, hold a book, bang on tables, and "talk". This kid has accomplished a lot in a very short time.
Everyday I spend getting to know my son is truly an amazing blessing to me, and I know my husband feels the same way. I can't believe a year ago he began growing in my belly, and at this time last year I didn't even know the many ways my world, or my belly, would be expanding.
We are now at the big 3 month milestone, he is no longer a "newborn", he is now an "infant". He is no longer in size 1 diapers, we are moving on to size 2, and most of all we are no longer limited to laying on our backs or in the swing because now Mr. Big Boy can sit in baby seats, and play in jumpers. Oh how time gets away from us!
In celebration of the big 3 month anniversary, we took our growing boy on a little shopping spree! Take a peek at our haul.
We still have a few more essential, aka onesies and socks, to buy, plus we are in the market for a jumper! I think we will be invading our local baby stores in the next 72 hours to test drive a few of our options.
And for the sake of list-love,
