Well... Brandon and I made it through the first 3 months! They say the first 3 months are the hardest to survive (I suppose with the transition and sleepless nights, etc... but I imagine the teething months and the teenage years to actually be the hardest...) but regardless... we made it! Ty is officially 3 months old!
Our little boy is turning out to be such a sweet, snuggly, happy little guy and we are head-over-heels in love with him!
Now... I've got to tell you... these 3 month pictures were much, much harder to get. Ty was squirmy and wiggly and I could hardly get him to look at the camera. In the pictures on the sofa, he kept trying to throw himself forward as if to try and sit up by himself (which he has not quite mastered... in fact, most of the time when he attempts this he just kamikazes himself and ends up face-planting whatever surface is in front of him. Luckily, it has not yet been the floor or a hard surface and Brandon and I are always there to catch him.) On the bench, he was too interested in everything around him and in the basket he began to have a mini-tantrum because he did not want to be laying flat on his back.
I'm going to have to get more creative for his 4-month pictures, I'm sure.
Anyway... without further ado... here is our 3-month old baby-boy!
Age: 3 months old!
Eating: Ty is still exclusively on breastmilk but we're going a little bit longer between feedings. At night, we're only waking up once at about 3 a.m.!
Tyson dislikes: Again, not being stimulated... he's constantly got to have someone or something entertaining him. He also isn't very fond of lying on his back for long periods of time. We have yet to be successful and getting him to sleep alone in his cradle at night, so, yeah, there's that...
Best Moment of the Month? Every single smile and coo tops the chart as the best moment. Not to mention, with every passing day, his personality is shining through a little bit more. He's quite determined to sit up on his own and loves to practice standing that it is super fun to watch and be a part of. Ty also got to meet Brandon's grandfather (Ty's great-grandfather) and we got to get a picture of the 4 generations of Sillivan men... it was a pretty special day.
Milestones? Ty is smiling constantly and has become quite the coo-er. Brandon and I could sit in front of him for hours listening to his "stories". He's also getting much stronger, our little guy. Ty also had his first sleepover without Mommy and Daddy at GranNan and Pop's house and his first out-of-state roadtrip to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Arkansas... both at which he did wonderfully with!
We love you so much, our little Tyson Lee, and the past 3 months have been the happiest of our lives.
