Oliver: 3 months...and Christmas!

 Baby Oliver is 3 months today and we are soaking in all of his "baby-ness" like there's no tomorrow. Time flies when you're having fun and we certainly are having so much fun with this little one!
He is so smiley and adorable and probably the yummiest baby on this planet! (I know.. I'm probably biased!). He LOVES his sisters and they love him so much too!
He's not a very good sleeper and I know that's probably our fault since we're constantly holding him and spoiling him rotten! The longest stretch so far is 5 hours and I really hope this improves soon because I am walking zombie most days...
He has no schedule yet and basically eats and sleeps whenever he wants.  My mom and some friends keep telling me we should really try to get him used to some sort of routine but I just can't help but let him do whatever he wants since I know this baby stage only lasts so long and the "spoiling" will be over before we know it.  Yes...he has me wrapped around his fingers for sure!
He is tipping the scale at 15lbs 6oz and is 25 inches my chubby boy!
He has been successfully (and exclusively) breastfed for 3 months so far....HUGE accomplishment for me since I was a breastfeeding "hater" back in the day! (I should write a post about that!)

We celebrated Christmas Eve with our family and had a wonderful dinner at home; typical Venezuelan food and a family Secret Santa were the main things of our night and the girls had so much fun! Oliver looked so adorable with his Christmas outfit and the night was just beautiful all around!

The girls got A LOT of presents but the biggest hit was probably the karaoke machine we bought them. I have never seen the girls so excited before...they spent HOURS (literally!) singing every karaoke song they found on their CDs and YouTube. We had so much fun watching them "perform"

And here's baby Oliver with his "First Christmas" outfit; he also got a few gifts, which he could care less about LOL...but he looked oh so cute and cuddly with his holiday attire...

I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and pray that God grants every wish your heart desires!
I thank Him for a wonderful time with loved ones and our 3 very healthy and adorable children!
