Go Wyatt ... Its Yo' Burfday

Well, your 3 month birthday anyway! (yesterday .... I'm a little delayed in getting this post up)

Happy 3 months, big boy!!!!Wyatt continues to be a big, happy, and healthy baby. He has consistently slept through the night since the first night we tried it and love, love, LOVES his sleep! If you wake him when he isn't ready to wake up, he will fuss. And truly the only times you hear him cry are when he is awoken or when he is tired and wants to go to sleep. He has started to roll from his tummy to his back (although his Meme says it "doesn't count" until he does it every time) and can roll from his back onto his side. Its going to take a while to get that back to tummy roll figured out though!
Wyatt has discovered his voice, although I'm not really sure he knows how to control it 100% of the time. Sometimes when we are talking to him he will move his lips but no sound comes out so he's trying to put it all together! He does seem to 'talk' more to inanimate objects than he does to people.
He has also started smiling a lot more often now. My favorite is when he first wakes up in the morning and he just flashes that smile at me as I'm getting him out of his crib! Its fantastic. And a fail-proof way to get him to smile is to make a fart noise - he just thinks that is hilarious. He also loves to hear people sing to him and doesn't even complain if you have a bad voice or don't know the words!
He is great in the car and rarely fusses -- usually only if we come to a stop. We just this past weekend made his maiden voyage to TN and he really did great. Of course we managed to turn a 3.5 hour trip into a 6 hour trip, but Wyatt did really well.
I'm doing his likes and dislikes because my sister will get onto me if I don't but really they're pretty much the same from month to month ...
- his activity mat
- sleeping
- fart noises (the child laughs every. single. time)
- mirrors (mostly on his play mat)- people singing to him
- milk!!!
- chewing his fingers/hand

- his multivitamin (but he hasn't figured out that he can just refuse to open his mouth!)
- tummy time
