Wyatt Reaches 3 Months, Mama Reaches Bronze!

Sunday was Wyatt's 3 month birthday. I can't believe he's already a quarter of a year old! He is growing up so quickly. He is still wearing 0-3 month clothing, though he may shortly be moving into 3-6 month size. At least on tops, that is. I think his short little legs might take a bit longer to outgrow that size! Soon enough I will have to pack away his current clothes to make room for bigger ones.

Sunday was also a milestone for me, as I reached what is known in the breastfeeding world as "Bronze" status. It's basically an imaginary medal symbolizing how long a person as nursed/pumped. At 3 months a mom earns Bronze,6 months is Silver, and 1 year is Gold. I am so proud that I've made it this far and have been able to provide enough breast milk for Wyatt that we haven't had to supplement with formula. To some this may not seem like a huge accomplishment, but for any mom who's faced challenges while nursing, it is. And I'm still going! I plan on writing a more detailed post regarding this topic at a later point, so for now I'll get back to talking about Wyatt...

We've seen lots of changes in Wyatt this last month. His personality is really beginning to emerge, and he is so much more interactive with us. He is definitely aware of our presence and will move his head/eyes to follow us as we move in front of him, even if we're across the room from him. He's developing better coordination as well, and is getting increasingly better at holding up his head unsupported. As I said in my last post, he discovered his hands a few weeks ago and is pretty much obsessed with them. He is constantly trying to put them in his mouth. Lately a lot of of his "tummy time" consists of him lying on the floor sucking on his hand while staring off into space. It's funny to watch, but I kind of have to snap him back into reality so that he'll actually play and lift his head!

It's so exciting to reach this milestone, and we look forward to every month ahead. Here are the latest pics we've taken:

  1. Congrats on bronze status! That's no joke!

    Love the reading picture. I'm JUST starting to get Tay to look at books while I read to her. It's not that successful yet.
