3 Months In

3 months does not sound long, but it is already a quarter of a year and compared to the squishy little newborn we brought home from the hospital, my beautiful son is growing so fast.

Archie is awake for most of the day, having a few 30 minute cat-naps to see him through, although he does sleep better if we are out in the pushchair or sling.  He will still only settle on his tummy, even in the pram and as the weather has been warming up and the pram apron coming off he does get some funny looks as he passes with his little bum in the air.  Archie still likes to sleep like a newborn and curls his arms and legs underneath him and tucks his head in.  He really loves to feel secure and is happiest in a sling where he can indulge his nosey side whilst staying wrapped up tight with mummy.

Dylan and Archie are still getting on so well and I love watching Dylan lie down next to 'Bubba' to hold his hand and give him kisses.  He loves to help wash his little brother when they share a bath and helps out during nappy changes too.  Dylan isn't always gentle with Archie but it is more through excitement than anything else and Archie watches on without making a fuss.  It is lovely to see them together and I can already see that Archie is desperate to join in with play and be on the move like his big brother.

Archie is growing so fast and his height is constantly commented on.  He is nearly out of his 3-6 month clothes because of his length although I am desperately hanging on.. 

Our nights this month have been all over the place, with a week of Archie sleeping 7-4 without waking, followed by a week of him waking at 2am and refusing to go back to sleep until 6am (incredibly tiring!).  This last week has seen him sleep from 7 until around 12:30 and then be up multiple times before ending up in bed with me from around 4am, as the only way to keep him asleep is to have him constantly latched on.  It is at 3 months that Dylan found his thumb and his sleep started to improve so I am keeping my fingers crossed that Archie will discover that magic digit soon.

brothers, two under two, brotherly love

Archie has really worked out how to use his hands now and loves to sit in his bouncer and play with the toys.  He can play the music and loves to grab and push the animals. He still loves to look at my face more than anything else and loves to have a chat with me.  He cooes away with a big smile on his face when we get a bit of quiet time alone and it is lovely watching him learn to interact.  I think I am going to have another chatterbox on my hands!

3 months in to life as a family of four and having two under two is certainly getting easier as we have all adjusted to the changes. 


  1. What a lovely post. My new daughter is 16wks and those weeks have FLOWN in! Shocking how they change and how sturdy they become, rather than those little frail bubbas that we bring home! x

  2. Wow he's changed so much! How long is he then?! I can't believe he's almost grown out of his 3-6 months clothes, that's mad ha ha. He'll be a basketball player from the sounds of it! Alfie's nights have gotten worse in the last month. They are still amazing really but he wakes up more than he did for the first couple of months. The 30 odd min naps have stretched out to one massive midday nap in the last week though so I wonder if Archie will do the same in a few weeks?!

  3. Oh wow!! I can't believe that I take a while off blogging and I come back and you've become a Mummy again, is it too late for congratulations?! He looks beautiful! x

  4. It's incredible how quickly they are growing. Gorgeous photos and a lovely post x

  5. Lovely post and lovely matching tops! Wish middle man had been as kind to baby man. shouting no no no no in the hospital was our first clue! He is finally warming to him 18 months on!

  6. Lovely post! How is Archie 3 months old already! I can't wait to finally meet him! x

  7. Jobey doesn't really sleep in the day either unless he is in the sling and he only sleeps on his tummy. We have had a few good nights with sleep lately but I know it could change at any time! Can't believe how quickly they are growing up! X

  8. lovely pics! our baby Grandson was only born this Tuesday so we don't know what his sleeping patterns will be yet.
