Holden 3 and 4 months

I am behind on my little Holdy bugs monthly posts so I am just going to do his 3 and 4 month posts together and before you know it he will be 5 months. Where has the time gone? He is growing up so fast which makes me really sad I wish time would slow down just a little bit, but at the same time it is so much fun to watch him grow and learn. I really feel like time is going by faster with Holden then with Maddux. Did any of you notice your second baby growing faster and the time going by faster the second time around or is it just me?

3 Months Old
Holden turned 3 months old on November 20th. During his 3rd month he celebrated mommy's birthday, and his first Halloween. He was our little buzz for Halloween and he looked so adorable. I love going through all the baby's first holidays and all of the milestones again. It is really fun to see how similar and how different Holden and Maddux are.

*This little guy is a really good sleeper. He goes to bed at about 9pm, wakes up at midnight to eat and then sleeps from midnight to about 9 am. Then he has a morning nap and an after noon nap.
 *He still has the hiccups all the time poor little guy

*He eats really good and is a super fast eater. He usually nurses about every 3 hours and it only takes him about 10-15 minutes to eat it is awesome actually
 *He rolled over for the very first time in his 3rd month on November 19th at about 8:45 pm and we all got to see it, it was so fun. He rolled from his tummy to his back and did it over and over again. 

*He is now in size 2 diapers and 0-3 and 3-6 month clothes and white onsesies

*He loves to be held and to snuggle

*He loves to be swaddled in his swaddler at night and for naps. He sleeps the best this way
*He does really good at church and usually falls asleep during sunday school and stays alseep during sacrament meeting.
