3 1/2 months

We are half way through 3 months!  I don't know how we got so blessed with such an easy and happy baby but we are over the moon about him.  Here are some things he's been up to...

...now drinks 6 ounces of formula...
...generally wakes up only once, if at all throughout the night (insert a big "woo hoo!")...
...smiles  A TON at everyone and his whole face smiles, it's adorable...
...likes to have conversations back and forth with us...
...bats and grabs at toys while laying on his play mat...
...grabs toys off the table...
...likes to explore faces with this hands when you are close to him...
...bearing some weight on his legs...
...blowing a lot of spit bubbles and starting to drool a lot...teething soon?...
...still isn't a huge fan of tummy time for very long but he does the mini-push ups well and is able to hold his head up for awhile...
...sitting in the Bumbo seat now and doing great at holding his head steady...
...still a little fussy around 8/9 at night which is generally taken care of with a walk and then a bath...
...moves all over his crib when he sleeps...
...wears 3-6 month clothes...
...loves his blanket, likes to chew on it and snuggle it...may be the cutest thing ever...
...gets a book/story read every night while getting his bedtime bottle...
...super close to rolling over from his back to his belly...workin' on it!
I think that's all I got!

dressed and ready for church!
monday morning bottle/kisses
friday night before we head to dinner
off to eat with friends so he had to look sharp!

Shannon & DJ 
Brett & Kristy...ok there are 2 flashes on my camera and the first one obviously scared him lol
saturday morning getting ready to go eat brunch with my mom and brett's grandma
laughing at Gigi...aka my mom 
maisy can't just lay on the bed like a normal dog...she likes our pillows and tries to use them like a body pillow

jaris you blinked!
a little editing experiment :)
family visiting brett's papa in the hospital, nephews watching a little tv in the waiting room
he LOVES uncle brett! 
did a full 180...he is usually on his side with his back against that teddy bear blanket
Last night after his bath I got a very small belly laugh from him.  Brett missed it and he didn't do it again but we did get lots of noise!  And sorry about my obnoxious noise I'm making...whatever it takes to make them laugh right?


This is hilarious.  One of our Dr. Seuss books comes in English and Spanish.  I was doing my hair when I heard Brett reading it and decided to record lol.


He is so happy in the morning so I wanted to get it on tape :)


This is after drinking his bottle which he is usually 95% asleep by then but this night he was just talking away!


This entire week Brett's family has been on vacation at the beach and while they were gone Brett's papa got really sick and had to be admitted in to the hospital.  So it was a long week for us but we are thankful that we were here to help with getting his grandma to and from the hospital and we were able to let everyone know what was going on.  So as much as it sucked not being at the beach swimming in the ocean, it was a blessing in disguise that we stayed behind.  Next year though we are NOT missing out on the trip!  Please send prayers, his papa isn't going home from the hospital anytime soon.
I think that's all for now, Jaris has his 4 month appointment September 2nd so I'll be sure and update his weight and height stats!
