Seamus has a very rough schedule. He usually wakes up sometime between 4:00 am and 5:00 am. He nurses and then he and I snuggle back to sleep until 7:00 or 8:00 am. He wakes up very happy and playful. I nurse him again and then we start our day. This month I've been working which means Ryan has his hands full. We haven't really figured this all out yet. Honestly I've been having a hard time working from home. My most productive days have been when I left the house and gone to campus to make sales calls. I'm thinking that next week I will actually leave the house every day for a few hours and let the boys figure things out.
Seamus is actually very happy to be with daddy and he comes to see mommy when he is hungry (about every 3 hours). Now if only Cyrus would understand the concept of "mommy is at work".
So back to Seamus. During the morning hours he takes a few cat naps. Honestly it is hard to get #2 to nap well when #1 is constantly running around chasing the dog and causing chaos. After his third feeding of the day he takes a longish nap (if you hold him he will sleep 3+ hours). Today he napped from 1:30-5pm...but he was in my arms.
I typically nurse him at 7 am, 10 am, 1 pm, 4pm, and 7 pm. However, I have been trying to let him make his own schedule so I am not pushing the schedule thing. At 8pm Seamus is usually asleep downstairs with Ryan. He still gets a bottle between 10-12am (Ryan wakes him up, and he chugs about 5 oz of breast milk).
Seamus's 3 month stats
Weight: 13lbs 9 oz
Height: not sure because he only had a vaccine appointment and I forgot to ask them to measure height
Vaccines: HIB and Prevnar
Ryan and I decided to follow Dr. Sears alternative vaccination schedule. It calls for more vaccines at an earlier age than what we did for Cyrus, but because we have a toddler we thought we needed extra protection for Seamus. Seamus is getting DTAP, Rotovirus, HIB, and Prevnar this summer (Cyrus only had HIB and Prevnar). I'm very comfortable with Dr. Sear's schedule.
Seamus has also met all of his 3 month milestones. At 3 months Seamus is:
Is going at least 5 hours with out feeding at night
rolls from his tummy to his back
sleeps on his side, but sometimes sleeps on his tummy
grabs toys and tag blanket
loves to be snuggled
loves tummy time
lifts his head and his entire chest off the ground
Seamus loves to be outside
He does not like to be hot, poor baby has not been thrilled with the summer tempertures
Is not a huge fan of the car seat
Loves when Cyrus sings to him or pays any attention to him
Talks a lot!
