Not-So Newborn Anymore

We are so in love with our little man. Looking at the progression of these pictures is crazy. I can't believe that he's grown so much.

9lb. 13oz.
Weight 11lb. 5oz.
12lb. 9oz.
Tagg had so much hair when he was born and his skin was so dark - I really wasn't totally convinced he was mine. Had I not been there for the birth (haha!) I really might have thought he was half Mexican. His hair is definitely getting lighter, along with his skin. In fact, his hair actually has a bit of a hint of red in the light. His little belly and face have definitely started to fill out and he's all baby now - and not-so-much newborn looking anymore. That's always a bitter-sweet transition.

I love Tagg's eyes! They are so blue and sparkly. They seem to shine when he smiles. And those lashes - oh my! Speaking of smiles - they are non-stop. Okay - now and then he cries, but he really is a happy, happy baby. He has discovered his hands and they are in his mouth a lot - covered in drool.

At three months he's not quite as sleepy anymore, but is definitely still a good sleeper. I would say 99.9% of the time we are in the car, he is asleep. Love that. Holland at this age - and ever - was not a sleeper in the car. He is asleep for the night about 9-10pm (and working to get that up to 8pm by the time he's four months!) Naps are getting more and more consistent. Morning and afternoon naps happen without fail, but the late afternoon/evening nap is hit and miss at this point. He's been waking up between 6 and 7am - and occasionally waking in the night for a feeding, but not every night - which is nice!

He likes to play on his kick-mat, chill in his swing, take baths with Holland, and showers with Mom or Dad. He's started cooing and laughing a bit; I'm so looking forward to more of those.
