Three Months Old

Well, I was planning to actually post this on Sam’s three month birthday, but as seems to always be the case these days, time got away from me!

"I am three months old today!"

He is getting so big (14 pounds, 2 ounces at his appointment on the 8th) and just wants to be on the move all of the time (I wonder where he got that from??).

He is starting to be very interested in toys and loves to grab things and put them in his mouth.

This is Eric (Derek for short) the Caterpillar

He is also sleeping for about a 7 hour stretch most nights, so we are so lucky to be getting some sleep. We know that not everyone gets to sleep like we do, so we are thanking our lucky stars!!

Maxy loves Sam, and if she could, she would kiss/lick him all the time. I don’t think she understands why we get mad at her for trying to lick his hands and face, because it is her way of showing affection. She is so protective of him (as anyone who has seen her react to me passing him on to someone else to hold for a while can attest!) and likes to scout out for poop!


Red alert!

He rolled over from his front to back for the first time the other day, and despite rolling over once more that day, has refused to repeat the feat. He HATES being on his stomach, so I guess he figured if he rolled for us once, we wouldn’t submit him to tummy time anymore.

Ready to roll...

He’s also started making tonnes of noise and trying to tell stories. We went to a class on baby sign language yesterday, although I think he has already learned the sign for “EAT” – his favourite thing to do.

I love the expression on his face in this photo!

Unfortunately, it has been hard to catch him smiling either on camera or video, as he is so fascinated by the camera that he just wants to stare at it! When we do catch him, it is blurry, because we are trying to get the camera up in time to catch the smile before he notices it is there.

Gotcha! He is imitating the Whoozit (which he LOVES) - a present from Kailey and Garrett.

He is amazing!



  1. I love the “1 of 287”! Glad I got to see some smiles yesterday!

  2. Lana, I love that you are talking about sleeping, eating, pooping, smiles etc. It’s awesome. He’s adorable!!
    Is it okay to be jealous of the 7 hour stretches at 3 months of age? At least you appreciate it, that’s good!
    Can’t wait to meet him!

  3. Sam is absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing these pictures with us.

  4. What a cutie!! I’m glad I’m not the only one that Maxy snarled at when I was holding Sam!
