The week was full of activities to get ready for the rehearsal dinner and wedding. I feel like it was really good for me because I had become quite obsessed with Owen and his schedule that not having such a set schedule (except for him eating) not only made me enjoy my time with Owen so much more but Owen seemed to take better naps and be happier over all! We did have some excitement that week as well with an ER visit for me (thank you gallbladder for your great timing) and the imminent weather report of a massive storm on Brian and Autumn's wedding day... for their outdoor wedding. It was so incredible how calm both Brian and Autumn remained. They were both so focused on just getting married and trusted that the Lord would take care of everything else! And that He did! It did rain on Saturday, but the huge storm split and did not hit Sarasota. The wedding was perfect in every way and Autumn was the most beautiful bride ever. She was so sweet to include my mom and me as she put on the wedding dress since that was such a special time...Owen however decided to scream in the small RV the whole time Autumn was getting dressed. Ruined that moment a little bit. During the ceremony Owen stayed in the RV with our best friends from California and they were so sweet to take care of Owen as well during the reception so Tim and I could focus on Brian and Autumn. The flight back was a success as well and much less stressful having Tim there with us.
The hardest part about month three was my return to work. Don't worry that I cried the first time we dropped him off at the nursery at church...I knew daycare was going to be even harder and it was! I was pretty much a wreck but I survived and Owen did great. He only went 2 days that week and the daycare even sent us great pictures of Owen with big smiles on his face.
Tim and I had to do our own measurements this month so they probably aren't completely accurate :) I found a website also that tells you what percentile your little cutie is in which is nice!
Weight: 15.5 lbs, between 75 and 90th
Length: 25 inches, 75th percentile
Head Circumference: between 75 and 90th
Loves: being bounced, his changing table, the nap nanny (best purchase Tim and I made), looking at books, face to face time, reaching for toys and objects, music and singing, snuggling, The Very Hungry Caterpillar soft book, hearing different sounds, activity mat
Hates: still tummy time
Owen is wearing 0-3 months and 3-6 month clothes. He barely fits in his size 1 diapers which we are trying to finish the package we already opened before moving up to size 2! He eats every 3-4 hours, still just breast milk. He teased Tim and me for 6 nights sleeping from 11-7 but that has sense stopped.
Our verse for Owen this past month: Proverbs 3:24 "when you lie down you will not be afraid. When you lie down your sleep will be sweet." Owen really slept so much better this month!
Tim and I didn't take very many pictures at all during the wedding...once we get the ones the photographer took of Owen, I will post them! He was so handsome in his little tie!
