I HATE laying back. If I'm not sitting up and looking around, I am not a happy camper. This means mom is not allowed to put me and my carseat in the buggy at the grocery store any more. Nope, id way rather be slouched over in the metal seat. I wish all the strangers in the store would stop telling mom that I look uncomfortable and angry... I'm perfectly happy! I'm also excited to break in the cloth seat protector next time we go out.

Weird scab thing on my foot when I was 2 days old? Whatevs. Random strain of strep at 9 weeks? Bring it on. MRSA, RSV, and double ear infections all at the same time at 3 months? nbd. None of these things phased me at all, but here I am at almost four months and I've been crying nonstop for the past two days. Mom and Dad think I might be teething, and boy, has it put me into a tailspin!

Mom sure loves robots!! Here I am in a robot t shirt, chilling on my robot pillow and robot blankie, playing with my robot puppy and robot taggie. This is a very small sample of my robot paraphenelia. I have robot decorations in my room, robot bedding and window hangings, a roboy mobile above my robot themed crib,robot soap, robot toys, robot pjs, robot clothing... maybe its time for Mom to get a hobby? Good thing she's going back to school in january so she has something to do besides compuslively buy anything with a robot on it...

I will be 3 months old this week! I'm starting to learn how to hold on to things, like my crinkle puppy (thanks, Elisa!) and other soft toys. I also love grabbing Moms hand. She seems to love this even more than I do! I haven't mastered holding my bottle just yet, but I'm working on it. I'm getting plenty of practice-I just downed two six ounce bottles in the past 45 minutes! Moms going to try to give me a little rice soon to see if that will help fill me up.
I'm still not holding my head up a ton, but I'm getting lots of practice with that too. Although... I would much rather be practicing holding up my bottle. I hate tummy time!!

Dad has been muttering all week about the outcome of the election. I think he's annoyed with my political affiliations (see "P gets politcal again")... but I'm sure my Gramma is proud of me. Now if only I could figure out how to work the phone...

I go back to work tomorrow. I have mixed feelings about it. I love what I do, and I'm pretty good at it. I love P more than anything in the world though, and I wish I could be with him 24/7. I even miss him when he naps.
I do wish people would stop acting like me going back to work is the end of the world... I'm going to miss P, but he's going to a great daycare and he and I will have plenty to cuddle and hang out. Bottom line: it is what it is. I'm okay with it.

I started school today. Mom was freaking out for no apparent reason. I'm obiously going to be fine... who doesn't want to play with toys and other babies all day long?
In other news, how southern am I in my camo pants and orange vest? I'm Moms Carolina cutie!!

Dad may have won Mom over despite his lack of style, but I didn't want to take any chances when I met Blueberry (not her real name) for the first time. I knew she was a big UNC fan, and who can resist a baby in a tie?
Mom has had a lot of fun with B's mom- its kind of cool they were pregnant at the same time!
I had a tiny fever last week. Nothing a little infants tylenol couldn't clear up!
Check out this awesome thermometer though. Its a pacifier! Here are my thoughts:
PRO: I like it better than having to use one in my bum
Mom doesn't have to undress me to take my temperature
I like sucking on it
CON: its not accurate when I'm crying
All in all, I think it was well worth the $8 Mom shelled out for it.

An alternate title to this post could be "why Mom loves babywise" because get this...
I am sleeping through the night!!
I've been gradually sleeping longer periods of time at night, but now I'm regularly skipping my midnight snack and sleeping from 10 pm to around 6 am (sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less). I'm only seven weeks old. Boom.
Basically, I'm the best baby ever.

Don't get me wrong, I love Big Bird as much as the next guy, but seriously, if PBS looses funding, another network will pick him up. If I keep hearing about this, I'm gonna scream! (Even more than I normally do!)
In other news, here's a photo of me looking extra cute in my bear suit after taking a walk with Momma outside.

I went to the doctor earlier this week... here's how I measured up:
Height: 22.5 inches (90th percentile)
Weight: 12 lbs (90th percentile)
I also got my hep b vaccine. I screamed. I heard most moms cry, but mine didn't. Does that make her a bad mom?
Now all Mom needs to do is find one for Lady that says "I generally tolerate this hairless, smelly, loud thing that has been brought into my home."
"I don't understand why the baby isn't put in a crate after HE pees on the carpet"
"Don't touch that baby because I will bark at you. Even though I don't understand him, he is part of our family now"
