3 Months

Sara Kate you are 3 months old!! What have you been up to?
*For some reason, I could NOT get you to smile during this photo shoot! But you sure looked cute, and you were very interested in the texture of the sticker on your onesie. :-)
-This has been an exciting month! You went on your first "long" car ride to Berryville, you met family from Texas for the first time, and you experienced you're first 4th of July!
- You are sleeping through the night and have been since you were 9 weeks old!! Yay!!
You are going to bed between 9:30 and 10 and you wake up between 5:30 and 6:30. It's been so interesting to watch your sleep schedule progress over the past 3 months.
- Nap time has improved in the last month. Your daddy says sometimes you take a good afternoon nap. In fact, several days this past week when I have gotten home from work, you have just woken up from a good nap. But then other days you still fight nap time.
*These were actually taken during a good long nap! :-)
- You are eating between 5 and 8 oz. of milk per feeding during the day. Daddy says usually it's around 7-8 oz. You are still exclusively breastfed, and we certainly hope to keep it that way!
- You are smiling up a storm and you can definitely recognize mommy and daddy now. When you wake up in the morning and see me you give me the biggest grin. I love that! I'm still waiting on that grin when you see me after being at work all day, though! :-)
- You are trying to figure out how to laugh, and you've been doing this for a couple weeks now. You make these funny cough sounds and little squeals, and you just crack yourself up sometimes. We love to watch you when you get like this!
- You love to put your hands in your mouth! They must be super delicious!
- Speaking of your hands, it seems like you're trying to figure out what to do with them. You move your little fingers all around, and move one hand on top of another. Recently, you started grabbing toys and you can hang onto them pretty good. Last night you even took a toy out of my hand and put it in your mouth. You also like to grab my tank top, shirt, or the burp rag while you're nursing. I figure it's just a matter of time before you start grabbing my hair! :-)
- You aren't rolling over yet, but yesterday your daddy said you rolled from your back to your side. He put you back on your back and said you almost did it again. Maybe it was a fluke or maybe you're starting to roll. Your Gran says that soon you should be able to roll from your tummy to your back, but that hasn't happened yet either.
- Speaking of your tummy, you still HATE tummy time!!!!! It just makes you plain mad. In my mind, I think you would master the roll from tummy to back just to get off your tummy, but that hasn't happened yet.
- You are wearing 3 month clothes. Carter's and Old Navy brands fit you good right now. You are also still wearing some 0-3 month Gerber footy pajama's.
- You are in size 1 diapers. Actually, right now you are in size 1 and 1/2 diapers because we ran out of 1's, but they fit you fine.
- You are really getting into your toys! You really like your play mat and everything on it, your love bug, your flower rattle, and this little yellow giraffe disk toy (you like to put that one in your mouth and feel the nobs on it).
-This has been a great month, and it's so much fun watching you learn new things. We look forward to seeing what next month brings! We love you bunches!
