>Happy 3 Monthday, Holden!

Birthday, Holdenlittlew8

>I was introduced to a new blog, ThatWifeBlog, and I'm in love with yet another blog. She had this on her blog and I thought it was such a good idea. I want to remember all of the little things that make Holden wonderful (and sometimes difficult) at this age. Thank you, That Wife! 

{NOTE: His feet were not as close to the flame as they appear.}

Nicknames: Emperor Holden, Boo Boo, Booger, Holden Bear 
Temperament: You are so fun to be around. You smile all of the time. You still have your "emperor" moments but now-a-days they are few and far between. You are, however, a little particular. You like to be held by people {especially Mom & Dad} and in certain positions. 
Things I Could Do Without: You're still not the biggest fan of the car seat. You can make it about 10 minutes but after that you're over it. You still wake up 1-2 times in the middle of the night to eat. Your finger nails are so sharp! Ouch! You've starting peeing through your diapers again (which means peeing on me) sometimes twice a day. Your sensitive skin and all of the creams/other items we have had to buy for it. {That Wife and I have a lot of the same things on this one!}
Item/Toy We Love The Most: Your teether rings. I love to see you reach for them! {They are the ONLY toy you reach for}. 
Item/Toy You Love The Most: Your hands! No contest. 
Things I'm Loving Most Right Now: Cuddling with you. You are such a good cuddler. I love sitting in the rocking chair with you in the evening. I also love tummy time. I put you on a blanket in your bedroom and read a story to you. Yesterday's story was "Where The Wild Things Are." You love to look at the pictures and listen to momma's voice. I also really enjoy bath time and singing to you.
Things You're Loving Most Right Now: Your hand. Plain and simple. Your first tooth is coming in (ALREADY. We always knew you were going to be ahead of the game.) and therefore you are chewing on everything. You like teething toys but nothing beats your hand. You also love "You Are My Sunshine," pulling up to sitting position, and making people smile. You also love your vibrating bouncer. The bouncer keeps you happy the longest out of all your equipment. Oh! How could I forget the bubbles?! You make the BEST bubbles with your mouth! 

You've made a lot of progress in the last month. You now weigh 13 lbs 7 oz (as of today). You can sit up assisted and you try to pull up on your own. You talk so much, more every day. I wish I knew what you were saying but it's so darn cute, who cares! This last month you have learned to fall asleep on your own! That made my life so much easier. I can put you down for a nap completely awake and within 5 minutes you'll be asleep. You are still a stomach sleeper but I don't even worry for a second anymore. You're a pro sleeper. We love you more than we could ever say. Our family would not be complete without you. 

{You always choose your hand over toys. nom nom nom.}

We will be celebrating your big day tomorrow because Dad has to work tonight until 9:00 PM (he works so hard for our family. He left the house this morning at 6:30!) GiGi and Uncle Robert are coming over too!
