Ok, so that whole you’ll get the shaft cause you’re the second kid thing. There is some truth to it. 🙁 Not because we don’t love you, because we absolutely do! But it’s true for a few reasons. 1. We’re busy, mostly chasing your brother around, so we don’t have time to take pictures of you in your “cuteness glory” and 2. All the little milestones are not quite as exciting the second time around. Though Keaton and I both gave you a good applause when you figured out how to roll over! But I’m trying to give you your fair share of glory, so here goes.
Beckham at 3 months is different than Keaton, but still so much the same.
– You love to talk, chatterbox, all day long. Keaton will say, “what’s that?” And I’ll say, “what is it?” and he’ll say, “Beckham talking”. Why yes he is.
– You do this cute little shrill/baby scream thing all the time. When you get excited mostly, but sometimes you just do it for fun.
-On Keaton’s wall, I framed the phrase, “Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a super hero”. I put it up when I was pregnant with you, and it’s so fun because in your mind he’s totally a super hero. You watch him all day long. You are perfectly content to just watch his antics.
-You are finally out of the newborn fussy phase. You’ve found your “chi” and I am thanking the Lord for that.
-You have been a pretty good sleeper from the very beginning, usually going 5-7 hours without waking on your first stretch, sometimes even longer. BUT, a huge but… You are cutting your first tooth and been all over the place on the sleep train the last few nights.
-That’s right you are not even 4 months, and mommy can feel the tiny edge groove of one of your first teeth.
– You have figured out how to roll over a few weeks back. I didn’t even practice with you, like I did with your brother, you just did it on your own. I guess that’s why they call it a milestone, because baby’s do it on their own, without Mom’s help (we just like to think we help… but seriously that was all you cause I didn’t even start doing tummy time with you until like 11 weeks, woops! ). 🙂
– THE WEBB/STALL CURSE has followed you, you have pretty sensitive skin like your bro. You are one dry skinned baby, and I’m so sad this is the case for you. You’re not quite the reptile your brother was, but it’s still not good.
-You still love to be held and cuddled, perfectly content to nap in our arms.
I know I’ve said a few times I’m not that good of a newborn mama…. But it really does fly by. I’m so happy for 3 months to be here to see your sweet little personality come thru, but when I compare you to your brother, I know it goes fast. I don’t want boys or teens. I want you both just the way you are, and I’ll keep you this way as long as I can. The days can be long, but the years pass fast. So, it’s ok if you want to stay little just a while longer, I’ll let you be.
My sweet boy.
And here’s your bro at 3 months, for comparison’s sake. 🙂
