Emmie - 3 Months


I can't believe you are three months old already! I've been wanting to document each month, but time has been slipping away from me, so we'll start with month three.

You are the happiest girl lately! Everywhere we go, everyone comments on your content demeanor and how observant you are. You love being around new places and faces (as long as you are being held by a familiar one, that is!). All day, you are full of smiles and coos and I just love it! You've grown and changed so much in this past month, and I can't wait to see what this next one brings.

Loves: Going new places, "flying" (being held high up in the air), laying on your changing mat, sitting in your Bumbo, being sung to.

Eating: Still exclusively breast feeding and it's going great! We still give you one bottle (of pumped breast milk) per day to make sure you'll still take bottles. We recently had to switch to the Tommee Tippee bottles, as you started to reject the Avent ones. You eat every 2 1/2-3 hours and eat about 4 oz (from what I can guess) at each feeding.

Sleeping: You are the best sleeper! We put you down at 7:30 and you wake up the next morning at 7:30. Babywise worked great for us, as you started sleeping through the night at week 5!

Clothes: All 0-3 month/3 month clothes. Some of the 0-3 month clothes are getting a little short in the torso, so I think you might start switching to 3-6 in the next month or so, but we'll see!

Firsts: We went on your first trip (to visit your Papa G and GiGi at the condo in Florida, then Mommy & Daddy took you to New Orleans!), you had your first Easter, you laughed for the first time (on Easter at the dogs!) and you had your first shots (you did NOT like those one bit).

Some pictures from the past month:

  1. We are taking our sweet baby to the beach....what were your must haves? Any other advice? She is super cute!

  2. This was so sweet and you girls looked great in your swimsuits! I can't believe she's growing so fast.

  3. So cute!! Especially in her baby suit!
