We've made it 3 months!!!!!

          Wow it's been 3 months since Hunters birth, we've made it 3 months of breastfeeding! In my last post I said my goal was to make it to 3 months, well since we're here my next goal is 6 months. I have to say breastfeeding is a constant learning experience on both parts. Once you've got things down there's a little change. Recently the new change is Hunter has learned to nurse more effectively making it so it doesnt take him as much time as it use too. Now it took me a few days to realize he was still eating the same amount just took less time and not to freak out that he wasn't eating lol. Even though nursing him is a lot harder then giving him formula I wouldn't change it for anything (not even more than 3-4 hrs of sleep at night). Why you ask? Because he's doing so well and for him it's so much better than formula. His reflux isn't as bad as Autumn's was too. Not to mention I always have enough food for him and here's the kicker it's FREE, doesn't cost a penny!!!And since it's free, we have money to spend on diapers and wipes (which I'm pretty sure pampers should give us stock right now). We spend about 150.00 a month on diapers and wipes. Yes I know that's a lot lol. 
           Well onto the good stuff, Hunter is showing great milestones! He is such a rockstar. Hunter smiles, coos, and follows objects with his eyes. He loves to follow Matt and I around the room (with his eyes). Hunter is also holding his head up anytime he's on his tummy, and he rolled from his tummy to his back for the first time Monday night. He is now in 3 month clothes and was 9lb 1oz last Wednesday.
           Autumn is starting to notice him more and more. She gives him kisses and loves to bring him toys. She does think whatever is his is hers too lol.  Autumn is growing leaps and bonds. She's in 18 month clothes already, she goes for her 15 month check up on 2/14. Matt and I are surprised everyday with her, weather it's a new word or something she's copied us doing or my favorate thing - going into the pantry and getting her applesauce squeeze packs, bring them to me and says "open, open"! Autumn will also reach for my phone and want to call Daddy while he's at work or she says Grammie or Papaw and want to call and talk to them. Which she well tell them "come here or come over" lol. I love it!
            Needless to say there is never a dull moment in our house.
