wow! i can't believe how fast these months fl by! it seems like yesterday when i was still pregnant, and so excited to meet this little guy inside me. i remember thinking that i would "never" go into labor. then, in the middle of the night - BAM! those contractions hit me like a ton of bricks! whoever said that lamaze breathing works is CRAZY! we are having so much fun with this little guy! :) he is laughing up a storm and is changing more and more every day. he is over 12.2 pounds and is growing like a weed! we are officially in size 2 diapers today after the biggest diaper explosion i've ever seen! obviously the size 1 diapers just cannot handle all he has to "get out".
i always knew that i would feel this amazing love for court that i couldn't explain once he got here. but, i never knew how much i would ache when i'm not around him. even when he is with the grandparents or aunt/uncle so we can have a date night, i want rhett to speed home just so i can snuggle with him. the other day, we were going to pick court up from mimi & pop's house and rhett was going literally 12 mph (i know that is hard for some of you to believe seeing as how much he really wishes he were a nascar driver). i was about to jump out of the car and walk because i thought it would get me to court faster. i told rhett that i don't know when i'll ever be ready to put him in the church nursery (not because i don't trust them, but just because i'll miss him too much). rhett said we don't have to do any of that until i'm ready! what a great hubby.
my favorite things about 3 months are:
- he has started "flirting" with me while he is nursing. he talks and looks up at me and smiles until i look at him and give him a kiss. it takes longer for him to eat, but it is priceless!
- he "sighs" alot and his favorite word is "ahhhhh". the sighing sounds like he has just had the longest day and it's a sigh of relief to vent his frustrations
- he has found the TV! if it is on when he is in the room, his head turns and he can't focus on anything else: nursing, dad, mom, anything! rhett says it proves that he's a man!
