3rd Month Milestones
I'm not sure exactly how tall you are or how much your weigh, as we haven't been to the doctor in quite some time. Plus, we don't have a tape measure or scale here at our flat to weigh you or measure you. If I had to guess though, I would say you are nearing 12 pounds. This is just because you're almost out of your three month clothes that say they're for babies up to twelve pounds. If I had to guess on length I'd say just shy of two feet tall. :o)
You are sleeping so well, and although you aren't sleeping through the night, you won't hear me complaining (except for that one time to Mrs. Enfume). On most nights you go to sleep between 8:00 & 9:00 and you wake to nurse at about 4:00 & 7:00. Once you wake up for that first feeding, I bring you to Daddy and my bed so we can all get a bit more sleep. When you do wake up in the morning, usually about 8:00, you are always so happy and talkative. You turn and look at your Daddy and swat him in the face while you babble and coo. It takes him a little while to wake up and pay attention to you, but you are always very patient. I think you both like waking up that way so I usually don't stop you.
You are still nursing about every 2 1/2 to 3 hours and it only takes you about 10 minutes to eat. I was worried about it at first, afraid you weren't getting enough to eat, but for several hours afterward you don't "ask" for more. You still have your little rolls on your thighs and a double chin, so I'm pretty sure you're getting enough.
You still love, Love, LOVE your play mat, and all of your toys, but you have also become very fond of this necklace type thing. It has rainbow beads that all have different textures. You will look at, play with, and chew on that thing all day!
You love trying to sit up and you get so frustrated when we aren't able to give you a helping hand. You still love dancing during diaper changes with your Dad and groovin' to the music with me. You are also constantly trying to stand up, which is so much fun to watch. When you do get your feet under you, you push up, and that's when those Elvis hips of yours get going. The smile on your face and your look of achievement are just too much fun.
We haven't done any traveling this month but we've been staying very busy getting to know Leipzig. We did visit your first play group, which you loved. You didn't do much playing. You just stared at the other kids running and playing, but the smile on your face was infectious.
We've had many get-togethers with friends, from kegeln with the HHL boys, to dinner parties and movie nights. The two things we hear from everyone at every get-together is, "does she ever cry?" and "she is such a good baby." To this we respond, "yes she cries, but not often." and, "yeah, we're pretty lucky we got her."
So Very Lucky!!!
Mommy and Daddy love you - all three months and almost two feet of you!
