3 Months Old!
Yes, I can't believe our sweet girl is 3 months old today! I know I've posted alot this week, I guess I'm making up for all the time we've been out of town the past couple of weeks. Some of the fun things we've seen with her lately are: she's so happy and smiley...love it! She loves to coo and talk to us, not a true laugh yet, but she does that high coo/squeal, whatever you want to call it. She has the biggest blue eyes, ohhh I love them! She is very tolerant of big brother kissing her and trying to smother her with his big hugs. She's just all around the sweetest baby, and rarely fusses unless she's tired or hungry (or needs a diaper change). Not sure how much exactly she weighs since her last doctor's appointment last month (I'm sure she's at least 10lbs. now) but she still fits in her 0-3 month clothes and wears a size 1 diaper....she seems tinier to me than Reed was at this age. I know he had moved up in sizes when he turned 3 months. I guess she's a dainty girl.....b/c sometimes she eats alot and other feedings she doesn't want much. Which is so funny to me b/c Reed was always and still is ready to eat! Speaking of eating, she still eats every 3-31/2 hours, and has just recently been sleeping 10-12 hour stretches at night, oh it's wonderful! I realized I have been waking her for her 10/11pm feeding for probably the last 2-3 weeks, so I thought I'd skip it a few nights ago to see what she'd do....well, she slept til 7am, yeah! And unlike her brother did at this age, our past few weeks of traveling she was absolutely fabulous....considering. I think she had her fill when we came home from the beach last Saturday and was totally spent after being in the car all day...as we stopped in Atlanta to buy our new minivan(which I'll have to post about that later). She was pretty hysterical by the time we got back to Blue Ridge....but can you blame her, we were in the car (obviously had a few stops and the car buying) from 10:30am til 9:30 pm.....so needless to say I think we all felt that way!
