Layton has had quite a month. I think the good Lord just knew I needed a calm, easy-going baby during all of this, because that's exactly what He gave me. Layton is THE BEST! We started out this month at our home in Quitman, then made a trip to Georgia, and now we are in Texas. Through it all, Layton has been nothing short of AMAZING! He is sleeping through the night, eating great (of course!), and smiling every chance he gets. (Both pictures below were his last two sundays in Quitman)
Layton had a nursery at our home in Quitman. This month, he actually got to sleep in his own room. I took some pictures of what his nursery looked like before we started packing it all up...just so he will know, one day, what his first room looked like:)
I also found this picture of him in his swing in our living room. I'm so glad I took these pictures of our old house (which was also our first house)
Layton is a wonderful wonderful baby. He is such a happy baby-everyone always comments about how "smiley" he is. I am IN LOVE with that smile of his. He started giggling this month (usually when he's being changed...he's all boy!) A few times, though, we have gotten a good laugh out of him. Hearing a baby laugh is one of the sweetest sounds there is.
He is a great eater. But he is a very serious eater. Don't mess with baby boy's food. That is about the only time he is unhappy-when the bottle is empty or if he is gassy. (again...all boy! ha!)
He wears 9-12 month clothes, although some 6 month outfits will fit him. He is in size 2 diapers.
Things he loves: eating, being changed (crazy right? but some of our best moments are when he's on the changing table), playing with mommy, daddy or big sister, sleeping (yes, he is sleeping through the night...i won't brag too much, but HALLELUJAH!), swinging in his swing
Things he does not like: baths, being burped, super long car rides, tummy time
(this picture cracks me up...he just kinda lays there like a slug) He HAS learned to roll over from front to back this month and has rolled over from back to front a time or two as well. GO LAYTON!!!
This month, Layton had his first Easter complete with his first Easter egg hunt and visit from the Easter bunny. He got a cookie monster towel, a book, two new pacis, two new outfits, and some rice cereal. Sorry buddy, no chocolate for you yet.
(the best we could get of all the cousin's babies)
Layton, you are too fun! We are having a blast with you and love seeing your personality unfold. You look a lot like your daddy, but I think you are a little bit of a mama's boy:) That's JUST FINE WITH ME:)
(^^ Please ignore the mismatched socks. We are still living out of a suitcase, so somedays, our outfits just look like that. haha! ^^)
Layton You are such a blessing to our whole family. We love you sweet boy. Happy 3 months.
