Maxwell Thane {3 Months}

Three months old already?  I know, I know....between 3 kiddos I've probably said "I can't believe they are "X" months old already" about 100 times, but it's so true.  Time just flies.  Before I know it, Harry and Max will be moving out, leaving their mama behind in a puddle of her own tears wondering "how the heck is it possible!?"  Ok, so I might be jumping the gun just a little bit, but holy cow, time needs to slow the heck down!

Month #3 was an exciting one in the Ritchie home, full of lots of changes for sweet Max.  Looking at him from last month to now, he hardly looks like the same little boy.  His cheeks have bulked up, his hair has thinned out (haha!), and his personality is REALLY starting to shine!  

{Maxo McSmiles}  This sweet little kiddo has some pretty awesome smiles going on lately.  He loves face-to-face time and always flashes his killer grin when he's talked to.  We've also been getting lots of giggles....they MELT me!

{ZZZZzzzzZZZZ}  Early on in the month we were on a pretty consistent sleep schedule at night.  Max was down by 7:30-ish and would sleep until around 4.  At that point he'd have a bottle and go right back to sleep until 7.  Well...since his big move from the bassinet to the crib, things have gotten a little hairy.  Now instead of a 4am cuddle, he's opting for one at 2.  Mom's not a huge fan and hopes that it is short-lived.  

{Chunk}  Our little tiny babe is officially growing like a weed.  These days he's rocking a double chin and has the most amazing thigh rolls (why are they so cute on babies and not grown women??)  He has a long torso like his PopPop and as a result, has been wearing 6 month onesies. 

{Papa Paul}  The kid has my dad's ears.  Enough said.

{Bump on a Log}  Unlike his big brother who decided to roll from his belly to his back at 2 weeks, Max prefers to be....well....lazy.  He gets himself about half way over and then just decides that it's way too much work.  Silly boy.

{Daycare}  I didn't mention it in his 2 month post - probably because I was too depressed about it - but Max is officially a daycare kid.  Really though, we know he's in great hands.  So far he's doing great other than some napping issues.  He gets to see Harrison throughout the day and is already making some little friends.  

{Miscellaneous}  He's obsessed with his hands, extremely impatient when he's hungry, and is turning into a splashing machine in the bathtub. He loves to watch his brother (and his puppies) run around the living room and to spend time outside in his bouncy seat.  Occasionally his big brother sprays him with the hose.  THAT, he doesn't love.

All was going well until he found his feet down there.  Then he had no interest in mommy or her camera!
And then, like last month and the month before that, he spit-up on himself to tell me he was finished.
Obligatory rug photo.  Love.

Oh sweet Max, you melt my heart a little bit more each and every day.  We love you so much and can't wait to see what month #4 has in store for us!
