In honor of Pierce’s 3 month and one week birthday, some photos.
He’s 15 pounds, growing some impressive eyelashes (and eyebrows)
happy (part of the time) when he’s held or swinging
and far larger than any of my other babies at three months old.
He likes to sleep in my bed, and rarely cooperates with the “back to sleep in your own bed” plan. Because, after all, it’s really, really hard to nurse all night long from there.
He’s so not my first baby.
A long time ago, when I had just one, I was horrified when a father of nine told me that their ninth was sleeping in their bed. He said you just relax about these things. I thought never, never would I allow a baby to sleep in my bed. That’s not what the books say to do. It’s not what the pediatrician says to do. It’s just wrong.
I was wrong.

oh my goodness, he’s getting so big! Only 1.5 lbs less than Abby, who is 11.5 months old! And yes, it’s really hard to nurse always if you’re in a different bed. Makes perfect sense, Pierce!
Exactly, Sarah! 🙂 Abby’s tiny like most of mine were. This whole “big baby” thing is new for me!
Hehe, makes it hard to nurse all night long… Elias has officially moved into our bed. He doesn’t even have a bed to go back to at the moment! I ignored him this morning in the early hours when I heard him start snuffling about looking for me. Ed finally said, “Hun? Um, he’s looking for you.” Y’think?!
Ah, Julia. Love it! I hate to say it… but I’m glad I’m not the only one! 🙂
Grace doesn’t have a bed, either. Sometimes I think I’m ready to work on getting her to sleep in her own spot, but then again I will miss not having her right next to me. If only I could do both – have her sleep next to me all night but not nurse all night. If anyone figures that one out, let me know…
I’m convinced that in order to not nurse all night, they have to be completely out of my bedroom entirely. Thankfully, I can nurse and sleep at the same time or I’d be a wreck right now.
