Sweet Pea is 3 months old!

Age: 3 months old!
Weight: About 14 pounds

(I don't have exact numbers this month because we didn't have a doctors appointment!)
Right around 9 weeks you had a growth spurt and most of your 0-3 month clothes didn't fit you anymore:( Problem is that I thought you were going to be a small baby so all of your 3-6 month clothes are summer dresses. It's still cold outside! So I've had to do a little baby clothes shopping which I don't mind at all! I think you have cuter clothes than I do now:)
You started sleeping most of the night which is one of my favorite milestones;) 
You also started playing with toys. I was excited, but sad at the same time. I love that you are growing up but I want you to stay little too!
This is your favorite toy for sure:
It must taste pretty good because it's always in your mouth!
You haven't quite figured out crawling yet, but you are learning to scoot yourself forward when you want to get somewhere...
I love your beautiful blue eyes. We are starting to wonder if they will stay that way!
You have also started sitting up leaned forward on your own. We never really leave you like that because you are a little wobbly still!
Sometimes when I go in your room to get you from your nap, you are doing little crunches trying to sit up! Here's a little video clip of you in your swaddle trying to sit up!
I'm gonna have to keep an eye on you from now on!
At about 10 weeks you started holding yourself up on your legs. Now all you want to do when you are being held is stand up! I guess it makes you feel like a big kid:)

You have been sleeping great at night!  You usually fight it to start with...sometimes for up to an hour which isn't fun, but we usually put you to bed around 8PM and then you sleep without waking up until around 3-4. That's like 8 hours baby! Thank you:) Then you are up for the day again around 8AM.
Nap times are a different story. You are so hard to get to sleep! Even in your swaddle, you arch your back, throw yourself and scream your little head off. I usually end up holding you while you are crying until you finally drift off...sometimes with a pouty lip. You look so cute!
Sometimes you will fall asleep in the car while we are driving. The other day, while we were driving, you put the corner of your blanket bear to cover your eyes from the bright sunshine haha. You are one clever baby:)
When you wake up in the morning you like to have a chat with mom on the big chair in your room. I lean you up against my knees facing me and you tell me all sorts of things, and I love watching and listening to you! Your stories get pretty animated sometimes. I can't wait until you can really talk to me!
Best Moments: 
The best moments with you are when you talk to us. You can be quite the little chatterbox, and it's so fun to interact with you and watch your expressions as you try so hard to talk!
I took you on your first road trip to visit Matt and Nicole! 
You had a great time and met your first puppy too:)
 We took you on a little walk too, but it was so cold that it didn't last long!
We took you on your first overnight trip to visit them just a couple weeks later and you did great! You even fell asleep in church without crying...which you have NEVER done before!
You love your Aunt Nicole!
Worst Moments: We tried to take you to Buffalo Wild Wings and that was the first and last time you will be in that place in a while. I guess the noise and TV screens freaked you out because I couldn't get you to stop screaming for an hour!
The worst moment by far was last week when you screamed in the middle of the night. Just one single scream. It sounded like something from a horror movie. We had all been sleeping and when we picked you up, you were still asleep too! Has this happened to anyone else? I don't think I have ever been so scared. I thought something had happened to you, but you were just fine! We make sure to pray over you every night now that God will keep you safe and that you won't be afraid. I think God is trying to teach us to trust you with Him. He can take better care of you than we can.
Health: A little congestion here and there but otherwise you are very healthy. We praise Jesus for that! I think we've just about made it through flu season without the flu! 
Eating Habits: You have been eating pretty consistently at about every 3 hours. It's nice to know what to expect now! At night when you wake up from a good chunk of sleep, you are so hungry that you about choke yourself to death eating! I'm glad you have a good appetite. One thing I think is hilarious is that if I sneeze or cough while I'm feeding you, you unlatch, look up at me and cry like I scared you or something. It's pretty cute:)
Special Memories:
You love your daddy! He's always playing with you, changing your diaper, praying with you before bed, and even getting up with you in the morning when you've already eaten. You are a lucky baby girl!
You especially love it when he reads books to you!
I don't think Jimmy and I laughed half as much as we do now thanks to you The other night we had you in your highchair with us at the dinner table and you had us laughing so hard that we were choking on our food! You make these hilarious faces at us and then laugh, squeal and babble on and on. It's got to be the most adorable thing!

You still love your bath time!
and of course the snuggles afterwards!
At Bible study a few weeks back, we found you snuggled up with your new little buddy Mariah. You seem to love hanging out with other kids:)
We've been successfully cloth diapering you for almost 2 months now! We just use them when we are home and put a disposable on you for going places. I've been using Grovia mainly and then a few other brands that our friend Jamie loaned us to try!
I figure we are saving about $10 a week, not to mention, they are pretty cute...and so are you:)
You have an obsession with screens! Doesn't matter if it's the TV, computer or will turn your head as far as you can to see it haha!
We had our first family fishing trip this month!
You got to fish with mom in the carrier:)
We didn't catch anything but we sure had a fun afternoon!
Last but not least, we love all the sweet faces that you make, and just have to share them with the world. Here are just a few of them...

I can't wait for month 4 with my beautiful Sweet Pea. You make being a mom the best job in the world:)

  1. She is so so cute! I can't believe she is trying to sit up. my little girl didn't master that until she was 6 months old!

  2. What a SERIOUS cutie!!!!!! That little ball is the first thing Judah started playing with and it's still his favorite toy!

    such a great update! You will love having these when she is older :) (but we won't talk about that cause she's already growing so fast!)

    Happy weekend!

  3. Oh my gosh! That picture of her sitting up with that adorable headband is the cutest picture ever! She is beautiful! These posts are always such fun. I did a chalk board photo prop for my son's two month old pictures, but I think yours turned out better than mine did. Good job! I just posted his 4 month update, would love for you to come by and check it out.

  4. I'm sorry if this is a repeat, I'm not sure if my comment went through! I wanted to tell you though how cute your little girl is and that the picture of her sitting up is the cutest ever! Great job on your chalk board photo prop, I tried that once but I think yours is much better. Would love for you to come check out my blog- I just posted an update on my 4 month old.

  5. She is just precious! Happy 3 months sweet baby girl :)
