Quick Update

John was 3 months last week. He weighed 11 lbs. 7.5oz and is 22 inches long. He continues to eat often and takes about 4 oz. 3 - 4 times a day from a bottle (Playtex Nurser - the Slow nipple) and then usually takes another 6 -8 oz. from Joy before going to bed. He did have a couple of days where his tummy was upset (Daddy's fault: I fed him some bad milk one morning - just about 3 or 4 slurps though) and didn't eat very much during that time but he has bounced back. He has pretty much settled into a pattern of sleeping 6 - 7 hours overnight without waking up. So I would say that John is doing well so far.

This weekend, Joy took him and my daughter down to a scrapbooking get-together with my sisters and Mom. It gave me a chance to have a weekend with my boys and a day today for myself which was good. It also gave my family a chance to be around John and see his abilities first hand instead of reading about it from a Dad who tends to be biased. I believe Joy was planning to start on putting some pictures of John in a book. Juli was more less planning to have a good time seeing her girl cousins. So have fun there, just come back home to us - we all miss you.

Yay! Sleeping through the night! The 10-11 hour nights are right around the corner. :-)

That's great that John will get to spend time with your family (and give you a little break!) this weekend. It is important for them to have that time. He'll charm the socks off of them, I'm sure!

I hope you'll post more photos of him soon...
