Madden is 3 Months

Sometimes I feel like the past 3 months were the longest 3 months of my life.  In the beginning Madden was so tough and I remember thinking when he was just 6 weeks that we just need to get to 3 months and it's all going to be better...it's good to have goals, right?  Well, we made it, and it pretty much got much easier around 8 weeks.  It was such an adjustment from one kid to two kids and some days I thought I wasn't going to survive, of course, every day I did and Madden couldn't be a better baby.  

Madden is definitely living up to his nickname...Tank!! He is such a big boy.  Right now he is still wanting to eat every 2 hours.  Everyone who meets him is in shocked that he is only 3 months because of his size.  He holds his head up so well and when laying on his back is already kicking his leg in attempts to roll over.  His personality is extremely mellow and full of happiness.  He loves to just smile from ear to ear whenever you play with him.  His favorite thing to do is to sit back in his chair and suck on his hands.  I think he is going to be a big drooler because he is constantly drooling all over his clothes.  He smiles whenever Skylar walks into the room and he hears her voice.  He just loves sitting next to her while she watches her cartoons.  He makes a ton of cooing noises to which Skylar always asks "What's Madden saying Mama?" He is taking 4-5 naps a day and unfortunately I can't say that he is sleeping though the night yet.  He is getting up about once a night, but luckily I'm able to nurse him right back to sleep.  His hatred of the car seat has gotten a lot better, and especially now that I just have him sit "up" in the stroller he loves being able to watch everyone and everything going on in front of him.  He is just our little boy who we couldn't love any more!!

Despite Jake thinking its a bit ridiculous to celebration a 3 month birthday, I couldn't let is pass.  Just as we did with Skylar I got him a little dessert with a #3 candle to document the event.  

We only let her have less then half of Madden's cupcake and she still managed to come out looking like cookie monster.

Here is Skylar and Madden's 3 Month comparison photo.  I still can't decide it they look alike or not.

Yesterday we met up with Stephanie to get some professional photo's taken of Madden at 3 months.  Madden was not in the happiest of moods and didn't give us too many smiles to work with, but Stephanie still got some amazing shots of him and I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out.  

Our handsome little man!!

My favorite shot!

    These pix are so cute! How did I miss the "3 month old" cupcake pix?
    I, too, love your "favorite" pix of Madden.
    Skylar certainly got the benefit of Madden's 3 month old cupcake! Yummy!
