It's a rainy day and I thought I'd post some pics of Jet. lol. Here is when I caught him looking pensive in his room the other day. This is a very comfy rocking chair so I understood why he was in it. :) He saw me with the camera and decided to work his magic. I'm not into baby beauty pageants at all, but if I was, Jet seems like the type who would go along with it no complaints. lol. (And no I did not position him with his arm behind his head in those pictures- he just loves that pose! It's so funny.)

A quarter of a year that is! Our little boy turned 3 months old today. :) He's getting chubbier and noisier and droolier by the day now. His favorite tricks are blowing bubbles and smiling bigger than ever. :) We are wrapped around his little finger. Today we were at the hospital for a bladder ultrasound, urodynamics test and head ultrasound (sounds scary to most parents but in spina bifida land this was nothing to crazy - Jet is a pro.) Everything is going really good considering Jet's diagnosis so we are thankful once again. But the nurse made me laugh when I blurted out how cute my little guy is (yes- I say it 50 times a day to anyone who will listen. It's terrible!) "is he your first?" she asked. lol. How could she tell?! Happy 1/4 birthday little man! :) Sorry we didn't have any cake - but maybe a birthday bottle? lol.
A few of my favorite things at 3 months...

Jet is getting more and more alert and expressive every day. :) He is such a big boy and enjoys going on errands with mommy while daddy is at school. This past Tuesday was Aunt Kay's last day of summer before heading back to school in florida, so we spent the day with her and the family. Jet really likes us to document things like this so here are some pictures from the day. :)
Mommy and Me
Wow Uncle Nate! I can see everything from up here!
Mommy and Jet don't like the sun in our eyes. lol. I guess we're both babies.
Cuddle time with Aunt Kay
We went out to dinner that night and met up with the rest of the fam. :)
Aunt Kelly stole me away. :) She and I get along really well.
The doting females surround him 24/7. lol
Jet was sneaky in this picture! He loves being the center of attention. ;)

So this is the sweet little cuteness that I get to wake up every morning. Our little boy is an excellent sleeper and sleeps so long we have to wake him up for breakfast! I know we are so so lucky and moms across the world are jealous of our baby who sleeps 9-10 hours at night. lol. Yes - although mommy doesn't sleep that long - would love to! But I haven't worked that out yet with the nursing thing (you moms know what I mean). And I need some time to wake myself up before he needs to get up so I'm still getting up earlier with Daddy for school. But it is great not to have to get up during the night for feedings though. And sleeping baby at night means more awake time for playing during the day. :) He is a good and easy going baby though and a joy to watch. He's still a big cuddle bunny and loves to be held and talked to. He's talking back now too which is so cute! Here's a video we took after breakfast this week for Daddy to see when he gets home from school. :)
