Joram is 3 months old!

We are thanking God for helping us adapt to having a baby.

Indeed, even when we have prayed for a baby, prepared on having one... no matter how big our excitement and love for Baby Joram is... we are not at all ready for him. But thanking God for helping us out each day.
We are God's dependents. And to another month... and 'til forever, we call upon Him to be our Guide, our Provider, our Strength.

Thank You, Lord for Your Love and Grace.

Babies usually reach these communication milestones during this period:
  • pay attention to new faces and surroundings
  • respond to loud noises
  • smile at the sound of a parent's voice
  • smile at other people by 3 months
  • coo consistently by 3 or 4 months
By the second to third month, your baby's eye coordination has improved enough to follow an object through a 180-degree arch. If you hang a mobile above your baby's crib, look for one that turns around, since watching things move is becoming another favorite activity. By the end of this period, he or she may begin to swipe at objects — the beginning of hand-eye coordination.

 At 1 month, infants struggle to lift their heads. But as neck and upper body strength improve, they'll be able to lift their heads up while on their bellies and eventually prop themselves up on their arms, hold their heads up, and look around.
You also may notice your baby stretching and kicking his or her legs. This movement strengthens leg muscles, and your infant will need that strength to roll over, which will probably happen around 4 to 6 months of age. (But be careful: Even very young babies can roll over on occasion, so it's important to never leave a baby unattended on a changing table, bed, or other high surface.)
Infants can grasp reflexively from birth, but during the first 3 months of life they'll begin to open and shut their hands and start moving their hands to their mouths. Your baby may be able to shake a rattle or a toy that is placed in her or her hands — and drop it when no longer interested in it.
Vision will also start to improve as your little one develops the ability to follow a moving object with his or her eyes and reach out for nearby objects.

Thank You, Lord for allowing our baby to grow and develop well.
