3 months old!

photos by Jalene
I can't believe its been 3 months since this little guy came into our lives,
although I hardly remember life before him!
This picture is how I will always remember my baby. 
Huge grin, lit up eyes, and kicking his feet and waving his arms. 
Beck is such a fun little man. 
He LOVES bathtime. 
He kicks and kicks until he splashes all the water out of his little tub. 
His first laugh was at abut 11 weeks and it was in the tub. 
It was the sweetest sound I had ever heard!
Chase and I were SO excited to hear that giggle. 
It took a few days before he did it again
but he's gradually laughing more and more over the last few weeks. 

Beck still loves to cuddle. 
He loves morning naps with his Mom and afternoon naps with Daddy. 
Besides snuggle naps, he doesn't like napping at all. 
It takes me an hour to get him to go to sleep on his own
and by the time he's finally out for good he wakes up soon after because he's ready to eat again!
We are pretty lucky at nighttime. 
He sleeps until 6:30 most mornings and then goes to sleep for another 3-4 hours after eating.
 Beck is fascinated with the world around him. 
He loves shopping because he gets to see new things. 

I have this little magic trick that works like a charm with Beck. 
It doesn't matter how mad or upset he is. 
He instantly changes from  full-on screaming to happy with his eyes closed if I let him suck on my thumb.
I don't know what it is. 
A binky doesn't do the same trick.
I try to only use it if he is super upset though because
 I hate the thought of my germy thumb being in his mouth. 
It normally only takes 5 seconds of him sucking on it that I can pull it out and pop in a binky or start feeding him-or he falls asleep like in the picture.

We just love this little guy and can't believe how much he changes every day. 
He is pretty interactive at this age and will give anyone who looks at him huge grins. 
He also makes the funniest expressions.  We just love him to death!!!
