Chasing adventure & living mindfully while parenting through mental illness


Three Months

Three Months

imageOlin is 3 months old now. He is solidly out of the  newborn phase, and he is starting to settle into a more predictable nap routine. He's out of the Purple Crying phase, but he is in a developmental leap right now. That plus the weather have made doing much of anything impossible. We've had a lot of indoor days, a lot of watching Dora and Clifford! But lots of baby snuggles so it hasn't been too bad.imageA few new things Olin has started to reveal about himself:- He is a super smiley and chatty boy. He coos a lot, like he wants to participate in the conversation.-His big brother is his favourite person. His face melts into a smile when Breccan talks to him. Breccan baby talks to him and pinches his cheeks and hugs him. Even when he's being questionably rough, Olin has a big grin.-The best way to calm him down is to play "St. Cecilia" by the Foo Fightersi. Nick is so proud (it's his favorite band). The whole EP usually helps him fall asleep if he's cranky. It's uncanny.imageOlin is fast becoming a little chunk - already about 15 lbs. Breccan was only 11 lbs at the same age. My shoulders are getting pretty sore!
