Leo is 3 Months Old!
We made it! Leo is now a quarter of a year old and although it may not seem like a big deal to all, to us, it is momentous. 3 months seems to be the magical age when babies emerge from fussy little blobs to full fledged happy little people (or so every book/parent tells us). Luckily, this seems to be the case for our little man. The acid reflux medicine, Axid, has worked wonders and maturity is helping as well.
This week, Leo got his first round of vaccinations, which made him grumpy for about 3 days. Joe met me at the doctor's office and I was a wimp and had to leave the room. All around, shots are horrible, but I know that we are doing this to protect Leo.
Luckily for us though, we have been rewarded with some wonderful surprises. Leo now talks (some may call it babbling) constantly. His favorite place in the world to babble is at his changing station, which doubles as his closet. Because it is recessed into the wall, there is a great sound quality that fascinates Leo to no end. He will just sit and babble to himself for up to 20 minutes...which is impressive since nothing holds his attention for that long. This week, we also discovered Leo's love for music. We will play him silly songs, clap his hands together and dance around like fools and Leo graces us with his big gummy smile.
So all and all, things are great. Leo is exploring the world around him and having so much more fun and a happy baby means happy parents. Now, if we could start getting more sleep, things would be perfect!
