Ollie letter 0.3

Dear Ollie-
You are now three months old. I can’t believe it, but I’m so happy. You’re starting to hold your head up a lot, and you prefer to sit up as opposed to lay on your back. You can’t sit up unassisted, and so far you aren’t a fan of your Bumbo. However! You love your bouncer! We’ve only just started using it. But it seems to be the place to be. You can roll onto your side, but not actually flip. You reach for your toys and enjoy yourself even on the playmat. Overall, you are good natured and happy, if slightly stoic and a bit grumpy an hour before bedtime.
We had an appointment with your neurologist this month, he thinks you are doing well, and he has us weaning you very slowly off the Phenobarbital. So far, that seems to be going well. Also, the doctor talked to Dr. Letizia, your pediatrician talked, and decided you could have the Dtap shot, so we went and got that yesterday. You didn’t seem to react at all to that shot, which was nice, since last time you got vaccinated, you totally freaked out all day!
You still aren’t on a firm schedule, but one has been developing. You now sleep most of the night! This is as of the last week or so. You basically go to be around 7ish and sleep until around 4AM. I feed you are 4AM, and then you go back to sleep. Well, you don’t want to go back to sleep, but I put you in your swing and you complain a little before dozing off. Then you eat again around 7:30, and every 3 hours all day. You’ve had nothing but fresh pumped breast milk this month. However, I am backing off on pumping, so I expect us to be switching to frozen breast milk soon.
You do seem to have a bit of cold recently though, where you are a little stuffy in the nose, but overall you’ve been happy and healthy. You really changed from a pretty passive newborn to an active little baby in the past week or so, and it’s been so great to be a part of it. Your dada has discovered if he makes a Ppphhhbbbtt noise/face at you, that you totally freak out and cry. He is just trying to play with you, but it’s a bit amusing to watch.
You make us happy, and we Love you!
Happy Three months!
Love
Mama
