3 Months (and an ER visit)

Semmes is three months old!  And boy is he a cutie!  He has FINALLY started smiling.  Although he is still a rather serious baby.  He is 15.5 pounds and 24 inches.  That's the 90-95th percentile for both.  He's one chunky baby!  He's in size three diapers because the size two's look like they're way too small and the threes hold everything in just fine.  He's in 3-6 month clothes.  He loves to have his cheeks stroked and his belly rubbed.  He grins really big every time you do either.  He takes a 20-30 minute cat nap or two in the mornings then a big, long 2 hour nap in the afternoons.  Then he sleeps all night long.  Yep, he goes 11-12 hours at night without eating.  It's amazing!  He eats every three hours during the day, so he still eats 6 times in a 24 hour period.  But I'll take more eating during the day if he sleeps through the night!  He's getting really good at tummy time.  Starting to figure out the pieces of rolling over (tucking one arm under him and leaning) but he hasn't rolled over yet.  He is also batting at objects, especially the ones on his play mat, and everything that he grabs goes in his mouth.

These pictures were a snap to take this month.  We just looked at him, said his name, and he grinned really big!

This was from Father's Day.  Semmes was more interested in that rattle...

I can sit in the Bumpo!

Tummy time!

This is what happens when I don't wear mittens at night.  I scratch myself pretty good.

A quick note on Cooper's ER visit.  He was coughing like crazy and threw up.  Then he threw up two more times in as many hours and was grunting while he was breathing.  Not good.  I thought he had aspirated again and the pneumonia was back.  Luckily, his lungs showed no signs of a new infection.  So he is home and went back to school today.  Thank goodness!
