Three Months!

We have seen lots of changes this month, not only in size
We get lots and lots of smiles, some so big that they look like his face is going to split! Given a bit of time and attention, you can enjoy a lengthy conversation with him, on the lines of oooh, ahhh, awawawaw...
He feeds every three hours or so, for 15 minutes or so on each side. The day starts around 6.30am and the final feed is around 9 or 10pm. After which, this wonderful child will sleep right through!! Bliss! He will be welcomed back to the bedroom when he gets rid of the latest cold - makes him such a noisy roommate!! He tends to be wakeful in the evening if I let him sleep too much in the day. (I aim for an hour at 9am, an hour at midday and an hour at 3pm, though this doesn't always happen.)He is much more alert and very contented for the most part, even when being squashed by his sisters (all too often!)
So much steadier now than that still quite wobbly newborn a month ago. Not only does he lift his head pretty high when he is on his tummy or being zoomed to the moon, but he will try and pull himself up to sitting position when leaning back against me. He also kicks his legs high in the air now and grasps anything he can - toys, sick cloth, hair... He is practically kicking himself out of his bath seat too.The consensus is still that he looks like his daddy - any opinion from you readers?
NB Thanks to Kamila for this beautiful outfit - it was actually one she brought back for LissaLou after her trip around Asia, I believe it came from Laos or Vietnam. The only downside is that they evidently aren't so practically minded there - the legs don't undo for ease of nappy changing!

Wowee - JoJo is incredible! What an easy baby! You're remarkably lucky! Elleroo is still waking up three times a night, and we've finally resorted to having her in bed with us! We're all getting much more sleep and I feel like a new person!

Your blog is brilliant - I'm once again in awe of you! I don't seem to have time to check my e-mail, yet you're managing not only to lead a very busy and colourful lifeas well as being a wonderful mother to three gorgeous children but also documenting your adventures! Oh - hang on...speak of the Elleroo - best go before she's sick...

If it's any consolation Kirsty, I don't reply to my emails very often either...! We found the bed method a lifesaver with LissaLou too, so glad that it is improving life for you and giving you that ALL IMPORTANT good night's sleep!

I just went back and compared the photo of him to the one with baby Luke taken at the beginning and you can really see the growth difference!
