Bryson turned a quarter of a year today also known as as 3 months. He's been commemorating the day by giving me lots of spontaneous smiles.He's still having tummy troubles, but sitting upright helps him a lot. So I caved in and got him a bumbo seat. He approves.
Other things about Bryson:

He likes to make squeals & coos. He doesn't do it often, but when he does, its adorable.

He likes to be in constant motion. The cradle swing is his best friend, as is the car, or a bouncing mommy or daddy leg. (Sariah was the same way at this age.)

He can hold his head up really well. He's not that fond of tummy time, but when he does do it, he pulls his head up to 90 degrees & tries to reach/push his feet forward. I realize that is reflex for this age, but I'm glad he's doing it. He's not really fond of being on the floor. He much rather be held or sitting somewhere, mostly held. He's a cuddler!

He enjoys baby story time. We've been the past 3 Mondays and he always stays very alert & attentive throughout. He'll usually crash right after though, probably all that stimulation. He's the youngest baby there, but big sister helps him out a lot.

He nurses about every 3 hrs during the day. I'm not sure if this is something I'm doing because it seems like a good idea, or something he's initiating, but its working. His last feeding during the day is usually about 7:30 or 8pm. Then he gets swaddled and sleepy, although he doesn't really get put in bed till after 10pm or he fusses & cries. Then he's still getting up at least once or twice a night before waking again at 7:30-8am. Its not really ideal, but I figure it can't last forever (knock on wood...)

I can't think of anything else exciting to say. He's a good little guy, even when he's crying a lot still because of all his reflux/gassy problems. We're thankful he's a part of our family and are looking forward to helping him grow and do more.
