There are several of us with new babies so I thought it might be cool to do a new mommy check-in. How are your new babies doing? How old are they? Any milestones? How is sleep going (or lack thereof)? How are their older siblings handling things?
Rowan is 3 months now. Things are getting a little easier. He is actually happy and calm most of the time, unlike his first few weeks. He smiles a lot, watches everything going on (especially his big brother!), reaches for things, can hold his head up decently well. He is still a little peanut though! But I think he is doing ok. At his 2 month check he was 9 lbs 2 oz, and when I brought him back 2 weeks later he was 10 lbs 4 oz. And he's plumping up a bit! Still has his pretty red hair though its rubbing off a bit in the back. Kieran is doing fine with him, but he still largely ignores him lol. I think that will change as Rowan gets bigger and can do things more. The other day I was reading Goodnight Moon to Rowan and he was reaching out and grabbing the pages, and Kieran looked over and saw him grabbing the book ("his" book) and got this surprised and indignant look on his face and pointed to him, as if to say "Hey, I didn't know he could grab things! Don't let him grab my book!" It was kind of funny.
We are in no-nap hell over here though. With Rowan, that is. His naps have gotten shorter and shorter and now he will NOT sleep longer than 45 minutes at a time, and often its shorter than that. As a result he gets over-tired easily and that is the only time he will scream... but boy does he scream. I remember Kieran not napping well either but I don't think he ever screamed/cried like Rowan does! He sleeps ok at night... he back and forth from waking a couple times to sleeping 7+ hours. Past few nights have been waking a couple times, so I am tired!
And finally, some pictures:
