Three Months Postpartum Update | Mom & Baby

We survived the “fourth trimester”!!!!! Harold turned three months old on November 1st and I can't believe how much he's changed since he was born! He really seems to have woken up to the world all of a sudden and we are having a great time interacting with him and watching him discover everything around him. I did a Mom & Baby update for 3 months postpartum over on my YouTube channel if you'd like to see how we're getting along. I do plan to continue these updates for Harold but I think this is probably going to be the last check in for me. Obviously it takes quite a while to get “back” from having a baby but I think that the first three months have the biggest changes happening. I wanted to document my experiences so that other people having babies might have an idea about what to expect. Everyone is different so I feel like the more people talking about it, the better.

Here are a couple of pictures of Hal from when he turned 3 months! Enjoy! :)

Baby Boy Halloween Costumes

We made a little lookbook for Harold's Halloween costume options. He will be 3 months tomorrow (can you believe it?!) so I didn't want to stuff him into anything too crazy. We aren't going to take him trick or treating this year because he's too small so we'll just be handing out candy. All of the options are adorable and he's been wearing them all week but we ended up choosing the Franken-Baby pajama and hat set for tonight.

 Remember last year when Steve wore this creepy looking Joker sweatshirt and I wore a Harley Quinn one?!  I think that having a baby Batman with villains for parents is a really cute and funny family costume set. (Watch: Halloween in Salem 2015 vlog)

Ha ha ha! Harold really got into character here.  I'm pretty sure that is the face the real Batman would make if the Joker picked him up! :)
