Ashton is 3 months old!

Seriously, where does the time go? I CANNOT believe that Ashton is 3 months old already. It feels like just yesterday that I was desperate not to be pregnant anymore and here is my baby growing up so fast!

Ashton is getting to be more and more active everyday. He loves flirting with you and holding conversations. Oh, and he loves his hands...seriously, LOVES them (He is currently slurping away on them right next to me). I am predicting that he will be a thumb sucker once he figures it out.

At 3 months Ashton is still waking up twice a night to eat. I really cannot complain though because he is doing way better than Emerson was at this age. He sleeps at night and takes his naps in his bed and on days when we don't follow a schedule for Emy (T, TR, Sat, Sun), he generally gets a 3 hour nap in the afternoon.

I have reached my goal of nursing for the first 3 months and am now starting to wean him. Right now he is still getting nursed 3 times a day and the other feedings are from the bottle. He does not seem to mind the flip flopping, so we are going to keep this up for a little while.

Emerson still adores her brother. She is constantly hugging and kissing him and telling us how much she loves him. She likes to lay with him on the play mat and to sit next to him in the bouncy and talk to him. Emy is also super patient with me when Ashton is crying or needing something. She is such a big girl and we appreciate all her help.
