Three Month Update


Finn is eating 7 oz every 4 hours. He eats at the same time everyday now-7am, 11am, 3pm, and 7pm.

I think he is 13 or 14 pounds. He definitely cramps my arm but i love my big boy!

Finn is a sleep machine! Such a good baby boy! He takes two 1 hour naps and one 3 hour nap during the day. He also goes down for the night at 8 and sleeps til I wake him at 7 am! Thats right, 11 hours!

Wake Time
He is awake 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a time and sometimes 2 1/2 to 3 hours (but then he crashed for the night afterwards). He loves his baby Einstein toys. He loves the rattle and has just recently found his hand! haha! I have a video that i will post later which shows how happy he is when he's awake now :)

He is wearing 0-3 month clothes. They fit him just perfectly!

Fun fact
Finn has started mimicking me. I can stick my tongue out and he will copy me. Mostly, he likes to copy my pitch of voice. It's very cute!

I'm doing great. I feel I have adjusted well to work. It's a lot of work being a full time working mom. But I wouldn't trade my role for anything. I absolutely love this! Also, Finn has made life easy now that he is on a perfect schedule. Such a good boy!

Little Finn's schedule at 11 weeks!

So, the last few days i've wondered if Finn's schedule is normal. He is such a good little boy and we are so blessed with him. Below is the schedule he has been doing for the last 2 weeks. It's not exact so thats why there are some time ranges. But, if you are a mom-please comment and let me know. I know every baby is different. But i'd love some expert advice from the moms out there :)

Around 6:30 or 7:00am Finn wakes up for the day (if he's not up by 7 am, i wake him). He drinks a 6 oz bottle (with zantac for reflux). Then we get dressed for the day. We leave the house at 7:50 for work and weekday daycare. Typically he falls asleep in the car around 8:00ish

8:30am He's dropped off at weekday and mommy goes to work. I transfer him to the crib and he sleeps til his next feeding.

Around 10:30 or 11:00am He eats another 6 oz bottle and has playtime with his friends. Tummy time is included in this playtime.

Around 12:00 or 12:30pm he goes down for another nap. Typically he will sleep for 2 hours here.

Around 2:30 or 3:00pm he eats another 6 oz bottle. This time he stays up until mommy picks him up at 4:30. We get packed up in the car and he will fall asleep around 4:45 and sleep til we get home.

5:30pm, we're home and he's up and plays while we eat dinner. He stays up til his next feeding.

7:00pm he gets a 6 oz bottle with zantac for relux and a teaspoon of rice cereal. After the feeding, we have bathtime, storytime, and bedtime prayers. He gets his paci, bear, and is swaddled and asleep for the night by 8:05. And he's sleeping til 6:30 or 7am.

On a different note, we took Finn to meet Santa this weekend. Below is my favorite picture-i know i'm crazy cause he's crying but he's still so cute! And Santa is pretty scary :).

Jason Pendley Photography

We have had the pleasure of being photographed by Jason Pendley several times.  He has such a talent for capturing the perfect picture. Below are my very favorite from our last session. I can't wait for next time.  On top of him being an awesome photographer, he also is a great person. We got to hang out with him and his family after our last session. He's a wonderful dad, husband, and friend. His kids are adorable and his wife is beautiful (and very sweet too).  Anyway, check out his site to look at his other pictures. And Jason, thanks again for some amazing pictures of our sweet son!
