Our little man turned three months old on Saturday. His personality has really started to shine this month. He is a big talker and can be thoroughly entertained as long as someone is talking to him. Thankfully he has two big sisters that love to talk, so the entertainment goes both ways.

Macks continues to be in the 75th percentile for height, weight, and head size. The pediatrician told me today that he is the perfect example of a “textbook baby” which is nice because that is something that I’ve never heard with either of the girls. I like having my little chunky boy.

While his skyrocketing growth is great, it’s also a lot more emotional than I ever thought it would be. He’s growing out of clothes so quickly and is now wearing 6-12 month. He wasn’t able to wear half of the clothes that I bought him because he grew far too quickly than I would have ever imagined.

Macks has also developed eczema this month. I thought it was infant acne that was never going away, but the bright red patches on his arms gave it away. I know I’ve reached out to many of you on social media and I cannot thank you enough for your advice and support. Macks has it all over his cheeks and arms as well as patches on his chest and back. The doctor confirmed it today at his appointment and doesn’t think it’s related to any food allergies (although I am going to eliminate dairy from my diet to be sure.) I’ve started rubbing both Aquaphor and coconut oil on him throughout the day and have noticed a huge difference in just two days. I hope that it continues to improve.

But even with dry red patches, this little boy is such a joy to be around. His laugh is infectious and he is completely care free. He continues to get much more fun as he’s getting older and I cannot wait to see what month four brings!
