Looking Back: Third Month

The third month started off kind of sad for us because it was when I had to go back to work. I wasn't happy about leaving Eli, but I was ready to get back into a normal, daily routine. Our wonderful friend, Tammy, or Mammy, as Eli will call her, offered to keep Eli for us when I went back to work. That was one of the best decisions ever! Eli had a great time with his Mammy and Uncle Clare and once he got through that first week, he rarely had a bad day.

Eli's third month also brought some newfound skills-holding his head up really high and rolling! Eli hated tummy time; I mean to the point where he would scream if you just acted like you were going to put him on his tummy. We didn't relent and he finally got it! We were so happy! Very soon after this, Eli discovered that he could roll! It was so much fun to watch him travel around the room by rolling. Eli also started cooing and those were the the sweetest sounds I'd ever heard. He and his daddy would spend lots of time "talking" to each other in the chair. Eventually, they got to hold those conversations with Eli sitting in his Bumbo chair since he could finally hold his head up straight! It was so much fun to see how much he was growing and changing.
