Three Months

Harrison is three months old today so I thought I'd share a bit about him and our life as of late. It feels like just yesterday that we brought him home, and at the same time, I can't remember what life was like before him. Amidst the blur of feedings, diapers and every baby-related Google search you can imagine, I'm finding such joy in motherhood. Harrison is smiling a lot now and getting noisier, and it never gets old. If we're lucky, we can get a grunty little laugh out of him, which usually requires us making fools of ourselves.

We're slowly working towards getting him on a schedule. Naps are unpredictable at this point, but at night he'll sleep from about 11pm to 5:30am, which I'm enormously grateful for. He's been sleeping in a bassinet in our room, but I think he's about ready for the transition to the crib. We're all about swaddling as flailing arms are the thing that consistently wakes him. And since he Houdinis his way out of them, the double swaddle has become our go-to method.

He loves his car seat and has proven to be a great traveler with a 17-hour car ride to Savannah and a flight from Austin to Seattle. We haven't snuck him into any Oscar-nominated movies, but Jonah and I have taken advantage of this portable infant stage. Early dinners at restaurants and coffee outings on the weekends are our primary entertainment these days. Harrison generally sleeps while we sit and stare at him or look at pictures of him on our phones. We're pretty much head over heels around here.
