A little Pool Time...

Today, we decided to take James to the pool. It was pretty nice out and since Brian had the day off - we wanted to take advantage of the opportunity. After getting the little boy fed, we changed him into his swim outfit (thanks Gimmie!) and off we went!

Hmmm... not too sure about this pool thing...
on second thought... I think I like it!

that was fun - now I am worn out!

As you can see, our first trip to the pool was very successful! Brian and I had a great time. It was a big change from our old pool trips that consisted of lying in the sun and enjoying a cold beverage - but this trip was special.

It was so fun to see Jamie react to the water. He really liked when Daddy blowed bubbles and made silly sounds in the water. I can already tell that Jamie is gonna grow up loving the water and that we will be spending a lot of time in the summer at the pool. And to top it off - he fell asleep as soon as we put him in the car seat to go home!

It is starting to feel like summer here in Austin. It has been creeping into the 90's and in honor of the heat, James decided to break out some of his summer clothes and try on his beach hat!

Isn't he just adorable??

3 Months Old

Today, James is three months old!

James weighs about 12 pounds now, is about 24/25 inches long and wears size 1 diapers. He mostly wears size 0-3 month clothes, but some are getting a tad bit snug and will soon be put away.
Our little man is getting bigger and bigger by the day...

Changes, Changes, Changes

A LOT of changes have been going on in our life.

James is growing up and turning into a little man.

In the past few weeks, James has outgrown the baby bathtub sling, the newborn napper where he slept and just now, the newborn insert on the car seat!

Now when we do tummy time, he can hold his head up and look around for such a long time! He is getting so strong!

He also loves to chill in his bumbo chair...

I wish I could say that the sleeping has gotten better - but it has not. He still is waking up during the night to eat and usually sleeps for about 4-5 hour stretches.

The biggest change is that I am now back to work and Jamie gets to go to daycare Monday-Friday. Luckily, a brand new daycare facility opened up right down the street from us and it is SO nice. As much as I hate leaving the little man every day, I know that daycare will be a good experience for him as he will get to interact with other babies and have the opportunity for new experiences.

Back to Work

Today is my first day back to work after 12 glorious weeks with my little man.

I sure do miss him today.

I miss his baby soft skin, the sweet smiles he gives me, the way he falls asleep in my arms with his little mouth open and the precious time we had together.

I am counting the hours till I get to go home and hold my little boy...

(Updates and photos to come this weekend!)
