Blakely Ann - 3 Month Update
Height: about 24 1/1 inches
Weight: about 14 pounds
Head Circumference: about 16 inches
Vision: You are really coming to life this past month and are noticing more of your surroundings. You love bright colors especially TV. You will stare in awe at the TV for a long time. I'm not exactly sure how clear you are seeing things, but you seem to notice much more. You also like to look at yourself in the mirror.
Movement: You have finally started to control your hands this month and are grabbing on things that you have stared at so intently these last few weeks. The down side of being able to use your hands is you pull out your paci much more now. You have found your feet and enjoy moving them. You are also trying to roll. You really only roll over your right shoulder and get 3/4 of the way there, but can't seem to get over your arm. It won't be long I'm sure.
Eating Habits/New Foods: Not much has changed in the feeding department. You had a few days of cluster feeding (every 2 hours) last week, but I think it was just the 3 month growth spurt. We are every 3 hours during in the day and still doing 3 ounces. At night you go for about a 6 hour stretch then it is back to every 3 hours. You are still good with the bottle and stopped gas drops several months ago.
Sleeping Patterns: You have started to form more of a routine this past month. You wake up between 8-9 am. You play for a while and then nap around 10 for 1-2 hours. Then you take another long afternoon nap around 2-3 pm for about 1-2 hours and then will do little catnaps in between. You usually have your last feeding around 8-9 pm and then you are off to bed. You still love to be swaddled. I just ordered some larger swaddleme sacks which are miracle workers. You sleep really well wrapped in your cocoon. I moved you to the crib for 2 days, but then you got sick. You got a cough a few weeks ago so I moved you to the rock n play since it sleeps at an angle. You've been there ever since I'm really planning on moving you to your crib after the keys trip
Sounds/Words: You are still making lots of random sounds and you love smiling at people. Mommy especially.
-You flew on your 1st plane ride
-You went to your 1st movie theater...and slept through most of it and watched the other part so nicely
-You got your first real cold that was a yucky cough with mucus. I just did a humidifier and the saline spray and a bulb syringe when needed.
-You went out on the boat for the 1st time & seemed to really love it.
-You can move your hands now where you want them to go.
Places you went/Adventures: The adventures continue. We went to Collin's beach condo for the night and had a sleepover and walked on the beach, You went to baby Sadie's baby shower, you celebrated your 1st fathers day, you went to Cashiers, NC on a plane for a 5 day vacation in the mountains.
Clothes: You are growing so fast. Most clothes are 3 months, but we have moved to 6 month sleepers and some onesies. Tall like your big sister! Still in size 2 diapers, but maybe not for too much longer. You are a little chunkier than Delainey was.
Sister updates: Big Sister seems to be doing better with smothering you and being too aggressive with you. She just always wants to touch you and cuddle which can be too rough sometimes. But you are a tough lady! You are starting to smile and make noises when D talks to you so she really likes that. I can't till you start moving and can follow her around and be best friends.
