Today, Miss Ives, you are 3 months old!
Officially officially not a newborn...and it's bittersweet. I miss my freshly squeezed baby. But I looooove my happy, giddy, alert, strong three month old.
Look how much you've grown...
At 3 months you...
Sleep through the entire night (11-12 hours!) You have since you were 11 weeks old.
You weigh over 13 pounds. I'm barely squeezing you into 0-3 month clothes.
You can roll over from your belly to your back.
You smile and coo.
You suck your thumb...and here's a pic to prove it!
|Most. Precious. Thing. EVER!|
You have a good routine going during the day now. This past month we have worked on getting some sort of predictability to your nap schedule, and we've been pretty successful. But being baby #3, we have busy days and lots of "coming and going", so you have adapted to sleeping on the go. Overall you are just a happy, low maintenance baby girl!
You fit so perfectly into our family. I have been a fortunate mama to not have to deal with any jealousy issues. Your brother and sister love you to death, and love to help mommy take care of you. Jade and Cole actually fight over you. They fight over who gets to hold you first, and compete for your attention and smiles. It's not uncommon for me to have to wipe tears because Jade is sad that you are looking and cooing at Cole and not her, and vice versa.
These pics were snapped this week...
We can't stop lovin' on you :)
Happy 3 Months, Ivy!
