3 Months Old

Tyler is now 3 months old!  He is growing up way too fast for me.  It is crazy to think that Zak & Ryder will be 5 in just 10 days.  I am trying to enjoy every second of their childhood since it goes by so fast.  Tyler is now 12lb 8oz (34%) and 25 inches long (71%).  He is wearing 6 month and 9 month clothing already.  I find it funny and baffling to see him in outfits that Zak & Ryder wore when they were 10-12 months old and Tyler is only 3 months old.  LOL!  As for development, Tyler is doing great!  I honestly can't remember what the average age for milestones are because the boys had such a different schedule due to being preemies.  So I got a book from a consignment sale that talks about the average age for various skills.  So far Tyler is doing great.  Some of the things he is doing include:

laughing out loud
following objects from side to side
push ups (he lifts his head and chest when laying on stomach)
roll over from tummy to back
making all kinds of vocalizations

He is working on head control now.  He will hold his head upright for a while, but then gets tired.  He is now eating 6oz every 4-5 hours during the day and has been sleeping about 10 hours overnight.  There are nights that he does get up around 2am to eat, but then goes back to sleep.
