Timo Tuesdays

Timo had his 3 month birthday last week on October 4th! He's so smiley and just barely almost giggling. He's getting better at tummy time and still enjoying his Bumbo. We stay busy meeting friends at the park and going to play dates. His favorite thing to do besides eat is kick! He kicks and kicks and kicks his legs so hard he scoots himself across the floor and his crib. When getting his diaper changed, he kicks so hard he shakes the table. Sometimes he flings both his feet out at the same time in a flailing full body launch. He cracks me up! 
He also drools a lot! He smiles with a bubbly cooing mouth full of spit, it's more adorable than it sounds I promise. I put a bib on him most of the time so he doesn't spend the day in a soaking wet shirt.

Since becoming a mom three months ago there have been some obvious major changes in my life. However there have also been some relatively minor yet odd/unexpected changes to my daily life, routine and personality-  most notably the following:

-I wear black leggings almost every day. I now have designated "at home" leggings and "fancy" leggings. The main difference being that my "fancy" pairs are less see-through. Also I now understand "mom jeans." When you're constantly on the floor and bending over, you need something high waisted that won't expose your crack all the time. 

-My criteria for putting something in the laundry isn't whether or not its been spit up on- but if it "smells" like it's been spit up on. If the answer is "sorta" I can probably get another day out of it.

- I can't remember the last time I blow dried my hair.

- My nails have never been longer or stronger, they look great! But I don't dare paint them because surely I'll have to pick up Timo the instant I finish and ruin them.

- EVERYTHING is annoyingly loud because it might wake up the baby: the microwave, opening and closing any door, walking in shoes, flushing the toilet, the sink, cars driving by, the mail man, coughing and sneezing, the sound of a fork hitting a plate when eating. Food wrappers are the worst. I've relocated to my bedroom with the door closed to unwrap a granola bar. I've also hidden in the pantry to open and eat a bag of chips for fear of waking Timothy up from a hard earned nap. (And by "hard earned nap" I mean, his nap is something I worked hard for ....and I reward myself with chips in the closet) 

- Friday has lost all it's special appeal. I don't care what day of the week it is anymore since I don't really get a weekend anyway.

- 9:00 pm is late 

- 6:00 am isn't that early

- I forget to brush my teeth in the morning.... A lot.

- and, just like everyone told me, it's all so worth it :)

Timo Tuesdays

Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed Timo's head control becoming pretty strong. I've stopped carrying him in the car seat to and from the car so now I just carry him. While I can't quite pop him on my hip and carry him in one arm yet, its still easier since the car seat is so heavy now that he weighs over 13 lbs. Anyway, I thought it was time to give the Bumbo chair a shot. I bought one the other day and snapped some pics and videos. Haven't taken the time to figure out how to post videos on here. Seems like I need to use the computer rather than my iPad.

He still doesn't love tummy time and doesn't quite hold his head up when on his tummy although I do see a nice gap between his head and the floor for brief moments here and there. He's still super smiley and making more and more cooing and talking sounds. We're getting closer and closer to giggles every day.
