Three Months Old

I know...it's totally cliche to say time passes quickly. I'm one of those, yes, time has passed quickly. I can hardly believe Troy is 3 months old now. He is becoming more and more fun with his lovely smiles, craning his neck just to see where Brian or I go, laughing and becoming more animated and active with his feet. He started sucking his fingers about a week or so ago and will be "talking" when his hand goes in front of his face. He'll continue his "aaahhhs" as his eyes follow his hand, usually ending cr0ss-eyed. It's so funny to me! He still despises tummy time but we make him suffer for a few minutes anyway.
Chunky legs!
He still loves his pacifier. Napping during the day can't take place in his bed, according to his cries. We go for the bouncy seat or swing. Speaking of beds, he's still not in his bed. We've kept him in the pack n play since he was born. First, we had the bassinet in there but he's outgrown that. He's now in the "insert" in the pack n play. The whole thing is in the office. We haven't kept him in our room. Sometimes I do take little naps with him and I put him on our bed. I love to see him sleep. At night, I swaddle him and put him in the pack n play. He goes to bed awake and usually quickly falls asleep.
Here are his stats:
Weight: 16 pounds, 7 ounces (nope, not a typo)
Length: 25 inches (this is the best Brian and I could do with the tape measure so it could be off)
He sleeps 10 hours at night and takes a few cat naps during the day. I think he usually eats around 6 ounces every 3 or so hours normally. Sometimes he wants to eat every 2 hours.

His eyes are still blue, his ears are beginning to stick out a little. He looks like Brian except for his eyes, ears and hands. Love it! He's such a sweet baby, too. We are hoping to take him to his first basketball game tonight. More to come on that...
The below photos are ones I took of him in his outfit KK made him. He's worn it for his one and two month photos I've taken. I couldn't button the thing in the back but I stuffed him in it anyway. That was the last time (insert tear). As I said earlier, we don't have him sleeping in his bed. Mainly because it's on the other side of the house, and we don't use it often. So, of course I put him in his bed to take his picture and he starts staring at the piping on the edge of the bumper pad. I chose the colors for his bedding because children are supposed to be drawn to bright colors. I couldn't get him to stop looking at the piping! Here I was behind the camera singing, jumping, and almost screaming to get his attention. Didn't work.
Still staring....

Okay I'm in love. I believe all babies should be punkins. He is a doll and that Santa shirt is PRECIOUS!
