James: 3 months

James is 3 months old!

James changed a lot from 2-3 months. I feel like once babies hit the 3 month mark they seem more like little people instead of little blobs :) You start to see tiny glimpses of their personalities which is really fun. At 3 months old James was smiling all the time and he had just started cooing. 

We took a little road trip to San Louis Obispo for one of Paul's football games. The kids and I rode down there with Paul's parents (Mimi and Grandpa) and met Paul there. It was about a 4.5 hour drive and James did great! He slept most of the way and we stopped to feed him a few times when he was hungry. Doesn't he look happy??

James is constantly making this face where he scrunches his eyebrows together. People are always stopping me in the grocery store and saying, "He looks so serious!" The funny thing is, June used to make the exact same face. 

On the way home from San Louis Obispo we drove to Kernville to visit with Paul's aunt and cousins and then we stopped at the Trail of 100 Giants in the Sequoia National Forest. It was pretty amazing.

I found a pine cone bigger than James' head!

During this month we also took a little trip up to Tahoe for Thanksgiving. 
James' first Thanksgiving! 

Mimi and Grandpa rented a cabin for all of us. It was very cozy. It even snowed one day. We pretty much hung out by the fire in our jammies for 4 days. 

Unfortunately, James had entered a phase where he was having a hard time sleeping. The whole time we were there, he would fall asleep in my arms, but wake up and cry the second I tried to put him down. It was exhausting. It's a good thing he's so cute!  When we got back from Tahoe, I implemented a 7:00pm bedtime and tried to transition him from the rock n play to the pack n play bassinet. It didn't go so well. James HATED the pack n play. So we settled on the swing in our room and he was back to     sleeping pretty well.

And then at the end of the month, one day shy of 12 weeks, James rolled over from his tummy to his back. Yay Jamesy!
