Alec turned 3 months old on Megan’s seventh birthday. Megan loves that they were born on the same day of the month…albeit different months. She kept reminding me: “we need to take Alec’s 3 month picture on my birthday.” Here is baby boy’s monthly comparison picture:
Sadly, Alec wasn’t feeling very well on his 3 month date. He and Megan contracted a nasty virus on June 25th which absolutely wiped him out. Megan was hardly phased, but Alec was miserable. Both children had rashes (Megan’s was mild. Alec’s was severe) and both had fevers (Alec’s was super high, while again, Megan’s was mild.) Megan also had sores in the back of her throat, but Alec did not. Their doctor said it was likely Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease, but it was presenting a little different than usual, and covered their entire body.
Other than being sick on the day he turned 3 months old, Alec has continued to just be the sweetest most delightful baby. He weighed in at 14 pounds 8 ounces when we took him in for his rash. He sleeps SO WELL, and there are many nights when he sleeps 8 or 9 hour stretches. He smiles freely, and laughs occasionally. He can reach and grab for toys and then stick them right into his mouth. He can roll both from his tummy to his back and back again, but he doesn’t do it too often. He is always just so content and pleasant. He is an absolute joy.
We call him by a couple of nicknames, “Ace” and “Johandsome.” When Adam and I were engaged, one of my little nephews thought Adam’s last name was “Johandsome” and ever since then it has been kind of a private nickname/joke between Adam and me. We have since passed it on to little Alec. And we think it suits him perfectly!
I have LOVED dressing up my little boy. Sundays are always my favorite day to dress up my girls, and it is no different with my boy. Who can resist a baby boy in a white shirt and tie? Not me, that’s for sure. I kinda went crazy and got him about a million ties and bow ties. I would have him wear one every day if it was practical!
Here are some random pictures of sweet Alec throughout his 3rd month, starting from the beginning of the month to the end:
We are all so in love with Alec (even the little sister! She now refers to him as “my Alec!”) I feel so absolutely blessed to have such wonderful, beautiful, and sweet children. Life is so good.
