3 Months Old!

Ella Grace,

This past month has been SO much fun to watch you grow and explore your world! Every single day you wake up more animated than the day before! It is very clear to Mommy and Daddy how much you love us because you are all smiles and get so happy when you see or hear us! It just absolutely melts our hearts! You are truly a dream come true for me! I longed for the day that I would have a little girl to spend the day with, and those days are here! Even though you are still a small baby who has no clue about our little outings, I have SO much fun being out and about with you! You are such a GOOD baby! I know our time together is only going to get better as time goes on! Although, that does NOT mean that I am ready for you to get bigger! You are already growing TOO quickly! We love you so, So, SO much! Happy 3 Months!

3 Month Stats

Weight: 12 pounds 12 ounces

Length: 24 inches

Clothes size: 3 months

Diaper size: 2

Daily Routine: You wake up around 7:00 a.m. and eat. After nursing you will play for about 2 hours then take your first nap around 9:30. These days you only sleep about 30-40 minutes for naps. On the mornings that Mommy comes home from work you will usually sleep in your swing for around 2 hours if I’m lucky! I sure am gonna be sad when you outgrow your swing : ( It has been a lifesaver! After your morning nap, you will nurse again then play some more. We switch your playtime up among your play mat, bouncy seat, and your Bumbo seat which has a tray with lots of toys on it. After playing for about an hour and a half or so, you are usually ready for another short afternoon nap. Again, you will sleep like almost 30 minutes on the dot every day. You then usually swing or sit in your bouncy seat and watch Baby Einstein while Mommy gets ready for work, cooks dinner, or whatever…depending on the day. You eat again around 4-5 p.m., play more or just have snuggle time with Mommy and Daddy until around 6:00 p.m. Then it’s bath time, last time to nurse, and you are usually asleep by 7:30 p.m. We have a pretty good routine going now!

Feeding: You nurse 4 times a day, but sleep through the night without waking to eat.

Sleep: Around 12 hours every night! Trust me, I know we are VERY lucky!!! And I am totally sure our next baby is going to be an awful sleeper!

Hair Color: Brown…still a whole lot less than when you were born : )

Eye color: Still can’t tell. It is such a mystery. One day they look blue, the next day they look brown. But I’m willing to bet they turn out brown. Just like your Daddy.

Milestones: Rolled over from stomach to back, laughed out loud, reaching out and grasping things, able to bring some things to your mouth, definitely know Mommy and Daddy’s voices and get excited when you hear and see us : )

Your favorite toy: This one is hard. You still love your swing! But you also love your play mat, bouncy seat and your bumbo seat with a tray and toys. You are pretty easy to entertain : ) Oh, and you are LOVING the TV these days! Namely, “Baby Einstein.”
