My sweet Jonah, you are three months old today! AH! For some reason I keep saying you are two months old. I guess because it's hard to believe you're already three months old and also I get sad that you're getting older and bigger, but happy at the same time. :)

Uncle Marcky, Jonah wanted to bump fists with you. 

Jonah, you are such a happy baby and you bring us so much JOY! You are starting to laugh at us and I love it! You are actually the happiest right when we get you up in the morning. It certainly makes early mornings not so bad when I get to see your smiling face. And I am far from a morning person but this is my favorite time of the day with you. When I'm changing your diaper and feeding you in the morning, I realize that I missed you during the night. So blessed to have another day with you. 

Per the request of some close friends and family, here is a picture of the two of us. I seriously only have a couple of pictures of you and me (except from when you were first born thanks to Brooke). I guess when I'm the one who is always picking up the camera, that's just what happens.

You are a champ at sleeping during the night (praise the Lord!). We're still having issues with your 45 minute naps, but I'm trying to not be too frustrated since you are doing so great at night. I'm praying that this is just a phase. Any tips of wisdom seasoned moms out there?

You love playing on your play mat but you play hard, and this is usually what happens.

We were trying to keep you awake for a little bit longer, but that didn't quite work out for us. You continue to prove to us you can fall asleep anywhere and in any position. We have also been noticing that you are quite the little squirmer when you sleep. You tend to move down in your crib during the night, so much so that I can't see you in the video monitor. And one morning we woke up to you perpendicular in your crib.

At first I was a little worried about you becoming a thumb sucker, but now I think it's adorable when you do it.  I guess there's not much I can do about it right now anyways. And if I don't have to re-insert your paci in the middle of the night, more power to you.

I think the one thing we can take away from this collage, is that you are the most
happy when you are fist-pumping.

Happy three months sweet boy! We continue to thank the Lord for blessing us with such an amazing son who warms our hearts every single day. We pray for you daily and ask the Lord for wisdom in how to be the best parents we can to you. Love you Jobu!


  1. Oh my gosh, he is so adorable!!! It makes me want a little boy!!! I love all his cute little expressions!!!

  2. Jobu:

    I want you to know that I happen to be my happiest when I'm pounding your tiny, squishy, puffy fist. (Let me know when you'd like to turn those hands into galvanized steel, however, and I'll bring you a pair of your own baby-sized twisty shorts.) Tell your mommy to check her email to find three fist-pounds just for you, commemorating your being three months old. In the meantime, my charming, strapping nephew, keep lightin' up that thumb. You'll soon discover that it's like an everlasting gobstopper, except made by God, not Willy Wonka.

  3. Your face - hurRAY! But the rest of those photos explain why your camera is usually focused on him. Happy 3 months to you all! (Hope you've already enlarged and framed that fist pump photo - it's AMAZING!!!)

  4. He is so incredibly cute! Happy 3 months Jonah!

  5. Happy 3 months! I love you, Jonah!

  6. Jobu!!!! Give your mom a big, slobbery kiss for me and tell her thanks for sharing all these great photos! Can't wait to see you, big boy! I love you!

  7. The occupational therapist in our NICU (Kara) says that his thumb sucking is an excellent sign of self regulation. Keep sucking Jonah and punch anyone with that little fist that tries to remove your thumb from your mouth.
    Papa Doc!

  8. I can't believe he is already three months old! He is so precious!

  9. Bethany, he is adorable. He looks very expressive in your pictures. Hope to meet him soon!

  10. Oh my goodness he is just precious. You are making me anxious for September when I am due. I am so ready to find out what this baby is. Love all of his expressions.....so cute :)

  11. I have a new appreciation for his 3 month picture since I have now seen with my own eyes how he keeps his hands in fists and loves to stick his left fist out like that when he's playing. He's ready to be a superhero!! Great choice on the photo.
