Celebrating Three Months

Today, Baby Scout, you are three months old.

Sleeping Patterns: Baby Scout, your sleeping patterns are starting to develop for day and night sleep. You usually like to sleep about an hour and a half sometime during the morning. You might do this in your car seat if we are out and about or walking. If we are home, I might get you to lay you in your "Rock and Play" or you might just sleep in my arms. You will fight sleep during the day. At night, you sleep from about nine until seven. Last night, you sleep from 9 p.m. - 7 a.m., but you got up around 2. Sometimes, you wake up because you unswaddle yourself or have a little gas! You are still sleeping in the bedroom with us in your "Rock and Play". You don't like to lay in your crib or pack and play to sleep. Daddy likes to rock you to sleep at night, and he is so good at getting you to bed. Sometimes, you fall asleep when you are eating for the last time of the day.

What You Like To Do:
Baby Scout, you love to be read to. During the day, I can read you four or five books in a row. You also like the instruments in your room. Your favorite is the triangle. You spend so much time on your play mat. You like to look at yourself in the mirror. You love to be held over mommy or daddy's head like an airplane. You smile and laugh when we do this with you. You like to have your diaper changed. This is a time when we see many smiles. You like to lay in your "Rock and Play" and watch T.V. "Wonder Pets" seems to be a favorite. I can put you in the "Rock and Play" while I take a shower, and you are usually happy the entire time.

New Things You Have Done this Month: Baby Scout, you have done so many new things this month. You talk and coo so much. You have the most precious smile (it looks a lot like Uncle Avery's smile from when he was a baby) and you smile all the time. You respond to someone talking to you and are very interactive. You had your first shots this month and your first X-Ray. You went to your first baseball and football games and also went to "Big Church" for the first time. You started Kindermusik with Mrs. Jane and love it. I think you are going to be very musical. This month, you made your first trip to Wal-Mart, mommy's school and daddy's school. You have been many new places (including a new state) because you are doing better in the car.

Eating Patterns: Baby Scout, you eat 7 to 8 times a day. You nurse every two hours for about fifteen minutes. Mommy loves this time with you, but it wears her out! You also spit up quite often but seem to be doing better. We went to see the doctor about this two times. He says you will outgrow it when you start eating solid food.

Dislikes: Baby Scout, I can't think of a single thing you dislike.

Diaper Size: Scout, you wear a Size 2 diaper.

Clothes Size: Scout, you wear size 0 - 3 months clothes, your pajamas are size 3 - 6 months, and your onesies are 3 - 6 months.

Eye/Hair Color: Scout, right now, your eyes are a green color, but I think they are going to turn brown. Your hair is brown with a little red tint to it. I think you might end up a red head. You also have little curls starting to form.

You are three months old!
You are such a sweet girl!
We love you!
