3 Months Update

Elley, you are three months old!
March 11
Which also means you're a quarter of a year old. You don't have a doctor's appointment this month, so no official stats. But by the scientific method of weighing myself with and without you, you're around 11 lbs, which supposedly would put you between the 10th and 25th percentile.
February 23
You're still technically in 3 month clothing, although several onesies have gotten two small and you can't quite stretch out your legs all the way in your sleeper. But all your 6 month clothing is washed and ready to go, so I'm sure we'll slowly start rotating it into your wardrobe. You're still wearing size 1 diapers, and while you really only wear them on the weekends, your bumgeniuses now have one snap open around the waist.
Daddy and the Fire
February 16, At your great-aunt's house
Your world was rocked this month, first by taking a 10 hour road trip to Atlanta where we spend a night at your godfather's, then 2 more nights at your great-aunt's house. You also got to meet 5 of your second cousins, although we weren't quite sure what to make of all the craziness they caused.

Thankfully you did pretty well on the road trip, pretty impressive since your not a huge fan of your car seat. Although we did learn that after your 7:30 bedtime you want to be all wrapped up in your crib, and still being in a car seat at that time is practically torture.
March 4, Unsure about Daddy's sneeze
In other earth-rocking news, I went back to work this month which completely changed your day. You spent 3 weeks with Pappi and Nanna, your grandparents, although starting next week you'll officially be at daycare. (By the time this posts go live though that's where you'll be.) I'm sure you'll do just find there, although if I have any concern it's that they won't pay enough attention to you since you're so easy-going. Although honestly, with you being as cute as you are, how could they stay away?
Sleeping Together
February 26, Morning cuddles
You're still sleeping really, really well. Plus now once you're asleep, you're down for the night and that's it till morning. I can't remember the last time you decided you weren't quite asleep yet and we had to go back in 10 to 15 minutes after thinking you were asleep to try again. In the 3 weeks I've been back at work there was only 1 time where you woke up early enough where I needed to put you back in your crib. There are times when you'll wake up 20 or 30 minutes before my alarm goes off, but all that means is after you've eaten you get to cuddle in bed with us. And those early morning cuddles are some of the best.

March 5, More morning cuddles
You're still eating like a champ. During the day you're eating 4 4-oz bottles of pumped milk. Then we have nursing sessions first thing in the morning and last thing before bed. I'm definitely grateful I've been able to pretty much keep up with you by pumping twice during the day, except I'm already over it. But while I'm looking forward to the end of pumping, I'm not quite ready to even think about the end of nursing.
March 9
You are smiling a ton now. One of my favorite things is picking you up at the end of the day and when you see me and start smiling. Although it's pretty impossible to get a picture of these smiles since as soon as you see a camera you get serious and distracted.
Eating My Number
March 11, Eating your 3 month number
You're starting to figure out your hands a little bit more, and the past few days have started gnawing on your fists. You haven't quite figured out how to shake your toys or even really bat at them yet, but I have a feeling by the time we're at next month's update you'll be a pro! Who knows what else you'll have mastered by then, but I definitely can wait to see!

  1. She is SOOO cute! Aw, she's so little compared to my big chunky boy. He's only 7.5 weeks and already in size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothing. He's at least 13 pounds lol.

    Pumping is really the opposite of fun! I nursed for a couple of weeks but had a lot of trouble so now I pump instead and I feel like it's all I do all day. Blech!

  2. Aw, she is so pretty! I love her bright eyes! And that photo of her and boy sleeping in bed is so sweet! I am glad that she's such a good sleeper - I imagine that's made your transition back to work a bit easier. I hope that her transition to daycare has gone well!

  3. She has the most beautiful eyes. I say it every month, but it's still true.

  4. she is the cutest! I'm glad everything is going so well!

  5. A 10 hour road trip is pretty impressive! Glad she did great! My babe is all about eating her fists right now too! It is so cute! I can't wait to see what they'll be doing by next month!


    I swear, half my favorite bloggers have new babies or are pregnant. I'm on cuteness overload. It's so much fun. I can't get enough of bumpdates and now monthly updates!

  7. Okay, so that picture of Elley worried about her daddy's sneeze is precious! Happy (belated) Three Months!!!
