Jude’s three months old! And I’m jumping for joy over here because that means I can finally sleep train him :) I know he’s ready because he’s given me several nights where he’s slept all the way until 8 or 8:30am, but then he decides to wake up at 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 on other nights and it’s really killing me. I need my sleep! So as soon as we get home from Utah, Jude is moving up to his room and we’re going to sleep train. I actually don’t think it’ll be that bad. Most of the time when he wakes up, I don’t even think he’s that hungry, but instead just wants his pacifier. Hopefully the process goes smoothly and in less than a week we’ll all be experiencing good long nights of sleep!
In other news, Jude is so smiley now! And for some reason I think he looks just like a puppy dog when he smiles. It’s the cutest thing. He likes to look at himself in the mirror, and loves when Grant tickles him–that’s when we get to hear a few giggles! He also has kept most of his hair, which is really awesome! Emery was so bald until about 10 months old, so Jude really has the advantage there. Maybe he won’t ever have to experience the shame of the mullet, like Emery is completely rocking right now. Poor girl..she struggles in the hair department.
Jude’s still a great eater and is getting bigger every day. At this age, Emery was only 12 pounds, so Jude definitely has her beat in that area as well. (I’m hoping that will help him sleep longer too!) He’s a very happy baby, just like Emery was. He really only cries when he’s cold or hungry. Other than that, he still sleeps a lot or just hangs out, watching the rest of us. Emery can’t wait to play with him. Grant and I kind of feel the same way. We love this stage, but we also know how much more fun he will get in just a couple of months and we’re anxious for him and Emery to be able to play together!
I’m sure there is more to add about him, but my time to blog is really short these days. So this post will have to be a quick one! To end, I’ll share a comparison picture of Jude and Emery, each at 3 months old. I still think they look so much alike! They definitely have a lot of the same features, especially that cute little Manion nose!
