Rilyn Ann: 3 Months Old

20 Nov

Three months! You’re getting so big! :)

A little bit about you at 3 months:
- You’re becoming our little chunky monkey! You weigh 12 pounds, 6 ounces and are 23.5 inches long. You’ve gained 2 pounds in the last month!!!
-You wear size 3 month clothing and size 1 diapers (I think we’ll be switching to size 2 diapers soon).
- You’ve only slept through the night twice (in a row). You’re usually up twice throughout the night. Momma would sure love it if you decided to start sleeping through again!
- I think it’s safe to say we’re over the colic! You’re much more content and a happier baby now. It’s night and day! Momma and Daddy (and I’m sure big sis Lakyn) are so thankful and relieved!
- You’re getting on a better schedule throughout the day now. You’re going 1.5 to 2 hours between naps, but you’re still a catnapper, usually napping from 20-45 minutes.
-You sleep swaddled only at night.
- You still prefer to nurse to sleep and you have a hard time taking a bottle. We’re working on this.
- You’ve found your fingers and you constantly have them in your mouth.
- You drool a lot.
-You still have your hair but it’s definitely lightening up and you’re getting a little bald spot in the back.
-You still hate the swing.
-You HATE tummy time.
-You’ve also found your voice and enjoy babbling and cooing at us.
- You enjoy your baths.
-You try to sit up while laying on your back and you roll to your side frequently.
-You much prefer being held and the holder has to stand and walk around with you. No sitting down and holding you!
-You’re very interested in the tv.
- We’ve started noticing that you hold your hands when you fall asleep.
-You’ve starting giggling and it’s so cute!
-I’ve started adding dairy back in to my diet and you haven’t seem to have been affected by it. And just in time for Thanksgiving! Yippee!!! :)

Holding your hands as you fall asleep

I love that you smile when you see our faces or hear our voices. Can’t believe you’re already 3 months old! We love you, Monkey!
