The Three-Month Difference
My nephew just turned three-months old, and it’s like someone flipped the switch from newborn to infant. All of those tell-tale signs of newness — the grunty noises, curled-up body, spastic movements — are slowly fading into a stronger, brighter, more baby-ish baby.
With my own son, I remember very distinct thresholds from one stage to the next — specifically at 3 months, 5 months, 9 months, 15 months, and 18 months. (Did you feel the same?) And it’s fun to watch these new phases roll in and out again. Only this time I remember how fleeting they are.
Here’s a little recap of Benjamin’s new 3-month self:

He can’t hold himself up yet, of course, but he’s quickly chugging along, getting stronger by the day.
I thought his beginning coos were cute, but now he’s starting to mimic your facial expressions — getting more and more animated.
And that includes big flirty smiles. (swoon)
He still has to be in a hip harness for 23 out of 24 hours — but they’re hoping to take it off next month. He seems to be getting used to it now, but he was having a hard time at first.
He’s even started to let out some deep belly laughs — the real mark of babyhood.
He’s made a friend. His friend’s name is Ralph. I see a long relationship for these two.
They even dress alike sometimes.
He’s also started the very early teething stages — the mouthing and chewing and drooling. My son didn’t cut his first tooth until he was 5 months, but I know he started doing this same thing around the 3-month mark.
Oh if only the stage would last a little longer…
