He only cries when he gets really tired, has gas, and needs to be picked up. He hangs out on his swing, which he doesn't like swinging. He just likes to have company in the room and sit there. He loves tummy time, he has great control of his neck now. A week ago, he was sick for about two weeks. He had a stuffy congested chest, coughed a little but luckily we got through it.

I breastfeed and am a stay at home mom so he nurses on demand. There is no set schedule, even though naturally there is a pattern. His skin has gotten better then his first month when it was breaking out nonstop. He has what looks like eczema, and the rash on the folds of his neck but not out of control. As moms we worry about everything, and one of those is how often they go... My son, very different from his older brother and sister only goes every 7-10 days. Apparently if all else is well, it is "normal" because there is no normal. ;)
Overall being a mom of three hasn't been much harder than it is with two. Strange enough it has been an easy transition, but that's thanks to my daughter who has grown up so much in the last few months. He stays awake allot longer and is a bit more demanding for attention. He loves company and loves being held. He has his older siblings, and his parents spoiling him with love nonstop. He has very recently started holding onto a few teething toys. We took him to the beach for the first time this month, it was so cute to see his hair blow in the wind. He is changing by the day, right before my eyes, excited to see what the next month will be like.
