Hot Chocolate and Movie Time

Let the Christmas movies begin! Tonight before bed we busted out some hot chocolate and a "Charlie Brown Christmas".  We are currently in the process of getting out our Christmas decorations so I don't have my Christmas mugs out yet.  Caleb was excited when I asked him if he wanted to drink some hot chocolate and watch a movie before bed.  He was in charge of putting the hot chocolate mix in the mugs, stirring everything up and putting in the marshmallows.  He was very proud of himself and has become quite the little helper in the kitchen.
Even Joshua got in on the fun of watching the movie for a little while (this totally cracked us up because he was just laying contently watching the movie).

I'm hoping to have all my decorations up this week and I already have the majority of my Christmas shopping done so my goal is to enjoy many more nights like tonight and just have fun making some holiday memories with my boys.

3 months old - Joshua

On Sunday the 4th, Joshua turned 3 months old.  Here is some random information about our little punkadoodle:

- You wear size 1 diapers
- You are currently wearing 0-3months clothes but I don't think it will be to much longer before we will have to move up to some of your 3-6 month clothes as your sleepers are getting a little short.
- You nurse every 3 hours during the day
- You go to bed around 8:00pm and get up at least once to eat, usually around 4:00am, and then wake up between 7:00-7:30am.
- We still either swaddle you at night or put you in a sleep sack
- We still have not moved you to your crib to sleep at night but instead you sleep in your pack-n-play in our room.  I do however usually put you in your crib after you wake up to eat.
- You are not a fan of tummy time at all
- You are not making any attempts to roll over
- You love your swing
- You like your pacifier but LOVE chewing on your fingers and hands
- You still really enjoy bath time but are not a fan when it comes time to get out and put your clothes on
- Your night routine is a bath, put pj's on, eat, swaddle, go to bed.  You are usually pretty easy to get to go to bed.
- You like to take cat naps in the morning and normally go down for an afternoon nap around 2:00pm and will sleep for 1-2 hours.  You like to cat nap again around 5:30pm.
- You have still not had any formula and have only had a bottle a couple of times.
- You can blow bubbles
- Your brother loves you to pieces and comes to find you as soon as he wakes up in the morning.  The two of you are already the best of buddies and carry on quite the "conversations" with one another.  It is sweet to see how you react when you hear his voice.
- You are babbling more and more
- You have the best little smile
- You drool quite a bit
- You love being carried in the baby Bjorn carrier and typically fall asleep
- You don't mind being in your bouncy seat for short periods of time
- You are ticklish on your belly and back.  It's sweet to hear you laugh and squirm around if I lightly tickle you when I'm changing your diaper.
- You like laying on your changing mat in your bedroom.

 (See I told are not a fan of being on your tummy)

I love these little socks
