Elise- 3 Months




Dear Elise,
Today you are three months old. It seems like just yesterday you were a newborn... sleeping and eating tons. Everyone would comment on how tiny you were. It seems that overnight you have gone from being a newborn to being a baby!!! I know that probably sounds silly, but it's the best way I can explain this transformation. You are awake for most of the day, except for your morning and afternoon nap. When you are awake, you are full of smiles!!! You are laughing more and more and I think it is the best sound in the world! You love to babble and you babble even more when I make the same silly sounds back at you. One of your favorite things to do is "stand," with Daddy or I supporting you of course. You get this great determined look on your face. Your strength surprises us and you're becoming stronger and stronger every day. You still love tummy time. Just this week you have started to "scoot" around and you'll even scoot off your play-mat.
Baths are still a favorite- you kick and splash. You get a bath every other night. You also love it when Daddy puts you in the shower. You don't mind water on your face at all! You still love your bouncer and your swing. You are such an alert baby. You are always so good when I take you places; you just stare and check out everything. You still love long walks with Jaws. Sometimes you sleep. sometimes you look around.
I took you to get weighed today and you sure are healthy!!! You weigh 13 lb. 11 oz and are 23 1/2 inches long!!! You've gained almost 2 pounds this month! You go to sleep so easily every night. You are asleep every evening by 7:00. You usually wake just two times in the middle of the night. You sleep until 7:30 in the morning which is fine with me! During the day you and I hang out. We usually run a few errands just to get out of the house. On the days that I work, Daddy watches you. You're usually pretty good to him, though sometimes you remind him that your lungs are very powerful!!!!
Month 3 was wonderful. We loved watching you "transform" and we can't wait to see what the next month will bring!
