Happy 3 Month Birthday BB

BB turned 3 months old yesterday! According to Happiest Baby on the Block, he is now ready to be born (whew, what a relief! :) ). BB's 3-month achievements include:
-being able to actually direct his hand into his mouth, which just started in the last 10 days or so, and boy does he enjoy it!
-sucking on anything his mouth comes in contact with: his swaddle blanket, his clothes, mom or dad's shirt, etc.
-lots of drool and spit bubbles (in the last week or so) (And yes, I know what all you veteran mommies out there are thinking, that some of these may be signs of (ominous music here)...the dreaded teething, but there are no signs of any tooth sprouts yet)
-smiles for people other than those who created him
-learning that the bath tub can be fun when you kick

Mommy's achievements on BB's 3-month birthday include:
-becoming a working mom

Yes, hi ho, hi ho, off to work I had to go. BB decided to be supportive by wearing his scrub top too:

I think it will take some time to adjust to this new routine, but I was thankful that BB was very smiley (after a very sleepy morning) at his Auntie Seenie's house with his cousins who read him books and played with him, and also that after 3 months off, I had no problems remembering how to be a nurse. It was amazing how tiny he felt after a whole day away from him!


  1. He is looking less like an infant and more like a bouncing baby :) And those baby scrubs are adorable!

  2. So glad to hear that your first day went well! I imagine it was hard being away from him all day :(
