I can’t believe how time flies so fast. It seems as it was merely yesterday when he was born, and he will be turning three months tomorrow. The past three months have been the most beautiful months of my life, especially when sharing time with my son, Nicholas James Ortuno.
Over the past months, we’ve seen him from drinking just a few cc’s of milk, to 1/2 ounce, a full ounce, and now he’s up to four ounces plus breast milk. Incredible! I remember the first time when we put him on his belly, he could barely pick his head up and, when he did, it was very briefly. To us, new parents, every little event, anything he does, is HUGE!
Now, almost three months later, Nicholas is still growing strong, drinking lots, sleeping less, smiling, cooing, learning to use his hands to grab things, and he even likes to watch TV, absolutely loves it when we read or sing to him, and of course, loves bath time.
Three months later, and we look back at how tiny he was when he was born. At only 5.1 lbs at birth, we were a bit alarmed, because we were not expecting our child to be born under what is considered “normal” weight.
Nicholas continues to make progress in his growth and interaction with parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and everyone who visits him. He impresses everyone, because of his great, absolutely-great attitude and well-behavior as a baby. My wife and I can’t stop thinking about him, and we constantly measure his progress.
I thank God for giving me the greatest gift of life. My Son.
