Will is three months old today!

We don't have another checkup for a month, so I'm not sure how much he weighs or how tall he is, although I'm guessing the answers are A LOT and VERY. So instead of his vitals, I'll give you some quick bulletpoints.
  • He drools. Copiously. From ten weeks on, he has been a saliva volcano.

  • He falls asleep when I run my finger from between his eyebrows down the bridge of his nose.

  • He is sleeping through the night regularly now...and I'm not talking about six hours here. For the past two weeks, he has been down from roughly 10:30 pm to 10:30 am, sometimes with a wake-up at 6 or 7 to down an ounce. As I type this, he is still sleeping after 11.5 hours.

  • He takes naps in the late morning and throughout the afternoon, preferably on top of someone. He stays mostly awake between 5 and 10 p.m., only dozing here and there.

  • He tries to talk to us constantly. I always took the invention of camcorders for granted, but now I know that I can record his "oooh" and "maaaaaaa" noises so they won't be lost forever when he learns to speak and we forget this newborn voice.

  • He startles when you sneeze or cough near him.

  • He still loves to stand.

  • He has begun to appreciate toys!

  • He's still in size 3 diapers (thank God!).
  • His smile and his soundless laugh (sometimes he can force out a coo when he's laughing) are hysterical.

  • We all love him to pieces.

So cute. When are you going to get him into some Northeastern gear?
