Speeding Right Along

Three months old! 
Biggest development in appearance: We can get that hair into a pony tail!

Compared to 2 month: 

At the two month mark, we got to go to your 2 month check up at the doctor. We found out that you weighed 13 pounds, and were 23 inches long. The doctor said that you were the size of a normal 4 month old! Based on our measurements, you are right around 15 pounds now. You are a big girl! 

Lots of changes this month already! You can definitely hold your head up. Right now you can hold your back up for 10 or 15 seconds on your own. 
After about 10 to 15 seconds your little back gets tired and you start to slump over. Once you get a little stronger, it'll be no big deal! 

We are having lots of fun trying new hairstyles with you! Your hair is SO long already! It's pretty thin on the sides, but your daddy is convinced that it's starting to fill in. Bless your heart. In another few months, I have a feeling we'll really have a mess of curls to navigate. 

You have definitely moved up a bottle size. You now drink 5 or 6 ounces every 3 hours.
You're also sleeping overnight now! You go to bed at 9pm, sleep until about 5am, and then you go back to sleep until around 8. You also take naps in the morning, afternoon, and right before your bedtime bottle.

We also had our first visit out to New Mexico to see Pops and Momsy! You had fun on the 10 hour trip out there, chatting with your parents: 

Momsy is so talented she can carry both her little babies at the same time! 

You and pops relaxing before bed time: 
We had a wonderful visit to see everyone. They got to see all your new accomplishments.  

When we got back, I learned that you like to help with the laundry! 

And support the Rangers with your daddy! 

And help mommy get free chick fil-a! 

Happy 3 months, sweet girl! We get to fly up to Michigan in a few weeks so you can meet Auntie Kim,  and Auntie Vanessa, and your new cousin, Aiden. Wish us luck on your first flight!
