Happy 3 Months, Walker Man!

Walker is officially 3 months old, today!  Look at me being all on time and stuff. 

He’s getting so big!  I still can’t believe the size difference between him and the girls.  Yesterday he was 14lbs 8oz. He’s in a size 3 diaper, and mainly 6 month clothing.  He can still wear some 3-6 month stuff. 

He’s sleeping a lot better at night!  Several weeks ago I got something called a Woombie Houdini.  It’s like a swaddling sack for babies that just zips up and keeps them really tight.  One night last week I decided to give it a shot.  Before, every time we put him down, his eyes popped open and he was wide awake.  It was so frustrating!  I would spend over an hour getting him to sleep and as soon as my arms came out from under him, he was wide awake and we’d have to start over.  Anyway, so in came the Woombie.  Wow.  Seriously – the first night we used it, he slept in his crib for almost 5 hours!  It makes him feel cuddled, like I’m still holding him.  It’s so great!  Ever since, he’s started out in his own crib every night.  It helps so much.  I feel like I’m starting to get my life back with a few kid-free hours at night. 

He eats every 2 1/2-3 hours during the day and usually wakes up once or twice to eat at night.  I’m totally good with that! 


He loooooves his mama.  He’s already turning into a mama’s boy.  Winking smile

Loves:  Woombie, cuddling, being held, talking, eating, Caroline making him smile, his THUMB. 

Likes:  Baths (until the hair washing part), the paci (he just can’t decide), the playmat, diaper changes, the swing.

Hates:  THE CAR.  Oh my word.  The kid screams from the moment you buckle him in.  There is nothing he hates worse than the car.  We did put him in a convertible carseat instead of the infant carrier and he is happier in it.  But he still just isn’t a fan of car rides in general.  He also hates a bottle.  He’ll take one, but he doesn’t want it and he has to be really hungry to accept it.  He also HATES to be sleepy.  He becomes really, really cranky when he’s ready to go to sleep.


Here he is sucking his thumb.  He’s really getting in to it lately.  Part of me really dreads that being his comfort thing because I can already see how difficult it will be to break that habit.  But it’s SO CUTE that I can hardly bring myself to care! 


Here he is cuddling with 2 of his great grandmothers.  They love him! 

Bless his heart.  He acts a lot like Amelia, just not as bad.  Ha!  He’ll be sitting there perfectly fine and decide he’s mad and just start screaming.  The difference between him and Amelia is that he’s not too terribly difficult to calm down.  Amelia just….didn’t calm down.  We joke that he has two moods:  Happy and Really Ticked Off.  Winking smile 


Overall, he’s waking up a lot more.  He spends a lot more of his time awake and looking around at things than he was before.  He purposely swats at toys on his playmat and enjoys watching the swing mobile.  He can roll onto his side from his back but that’s about all he’s interested in doing.  He really isn’t a huge fan of tummy time – he’ll tolerate it for 3-4 minutes. 

I love his sweet smile.  He is such a precious little boy. 


He has the cutest, chubbiest, little cheeks.  I love them.  I just want to squish them!


I really think he favors Judd, but I’m terrible at guessing who a baby looks like.  Ha! 

Little man, we sure do love you! 


  1. He does look much bigger than your girls!! Isnt it SO nice when you start to get a little time back for yourself again? You are looking great!

  2. He is such a cute little pumpkin. I think that he favors Judd too, but babies' faces change so fast.

    My grandfather's name was Walker.
