Maybe this is all a coincidence, but I have been off dairy and soy for 5 days, and Izzy is already sleeping better. He only woke up THREE times last night. It was like heaven on earth. SERIOUSLY. And as of ten minutes ago, he has been napping for an HOUR. Not thirty minutes - ONE HOUR. Holy guacamole!
Due to all this sleeping, I am feeling especially fond my little boy right now. I feel the need to brag about him, so please indulge me. My baby boy has been busy learning tons of new stuff, and I rarely ever talk about it. So, this post is strictly dedicated to my little Izzy whizzy woo.
Izzy is already 3 months old! Can you believe it? Honestly, I am shocked at how quickly the time with him has passed. Its feels like we just brought him home from the hospital. Yet at the same time, it feels like he has always been a part of our lives, and its hard to remember life without him.
Izzy is a good baby. Yes, he cries for no good reason sometimes, but he is easily consoled and comforted. He is very interested in the world around him, and is content to watch mommy do the dishes or to watch Porgie dance around the living room. This is very bizarre to me, because Porgie wanted to be held constantly when she was a newborn.
Izzy has suddenly started lifting his head off of the floor. He is quite good at it, and I am impressed by his skills. I have scheduled an appointment for his three month photos, and I am excited about getting a tummy time shot.
Izzy can also grab toys and bring them to his mouth. It is so amazing to watch him unfurl his little hand and grasp an object. I know it sounds trivial, but it is truly amazing to witness.
Izzy is the most ticklish baby EVER. He is ticklish around his neck, on his belly, and on his thighs. Just lightly pressing on his belly will elicit tons of giggles.
Izzy really is a great baby. I love him to pieces.
