3 months

Things to remember about Preslee's third month:
  • We went back to the dr this week and you weigh 10.11!
  • You are wearing size 1 diapers and still some newborn clothes along with 0-3.
  • You are breastfeeding exclusively and doing much better. You take a bottle of breast milk very easily if we are out and about or with a sitter!
  • You are nursing for 30-40 min- every 3 hours during the day and you are only waking once in a 12 hour period at night!
  • After you nurse, you are SO sweet!!
  • You are really talking so much now and starting to giggle. You try to repeat sounds when we say them. ("Ohh" and "Ah Goo")
  • You are swaddled in the miracle blanket every time you sleep in the crib! You fight it for a few minutes but it helps keep you asleep since your arms like to be in the air!
  • You love to take naps in your swing now! I love that you fall asleep so easily there!
  • Your taking 30mg of Prevacid now along with mylanta twice a day for reflux. I can't wait for you to grow out of this! I hate that it makes your tummy hurt and causes you to be fussy.
  • You love to kick and play on your piano play mat!
  • You still won't take a paci. I am about to just give up trying!
  • You have great neck control and hold your head up so well even the dr said so!
  • Your hair is growing and you haven't lost any!
  • You love your hands and have started to suck on your fist!
  • Running errands is still not easy because you still hate your carseat! You try to buck out of it and not let me buckle you in!
  • You love to watch tv with daddy! But we are also reading lots of books to you and you seem to really like bright colors.
  • You still really enjoy your bath and sleep so good after your bedtime bath!
  • You want to stand up all the time! You seem too little to be standing so good. We laugh at your facial expression when you first stand up. You open your mouth like you are so excited and proud of yourself for standing! It's so sweet!
  • Momma has gone back to work 2 days a week and you stay with Daddy in the morning and Ashleigh, your sitter, until I get off! You are doing well taking naps for her!
Preslee- I seriously can't believe you are 3 months old! Everyone told me things would get easier at 3 months and I can say that is true for the most part! You are getting sweeter every day! Seeing you smile and giggle is one thing that I will never get tired of. It melts my heart and makes me love you more than I ever knew I could! This is Leap year so you got to actually have a 3 month birthday! Crazy next time that happens you will be 4 years old! I love you so much sweet P!

It is so fun to hear you talk about her. :) And... I am not sure if you have one, but sometimes a mirror above their carseat helps. They can see themselves and you can see them (until they get a clue and find you in the mirror too) and it seems to help them feel less alone. My girl always hated her seat too. She did better when we had a mirror, but I think she also didn't like to ride backwards.
