3 Months

Our Little Finley is 3 months!!

You weigh approx 14lbs
You are wearing 3-6 month clothes, mostly 6 month clothes
During our trip to California, we FINALLY moved you up to a size 2 diaper. After 5 outfit changes each day, we figured it was the diaper that just wasn't doing the job anymore.
I just realized the last couple days that you no longer are a newborn, you are turning into a baby now with so much personality
Your eyes are still blue/gray but a lot of people think they will turn out like mine, which are green
You are starting to "talk" so much now and really interact with people
You make the best eye contact and will just stare for the longest time when people talk to you
You definitely know your mom and dad's voice, if you hear us in the room you will turn your head and just follow our voice, so cute! The other day while walking through the airport, your dad was carrying you and you just arched your head back and watched him for so long.
You are still a pretty good night sleeper. You actually have digressed a little since last month. During month 2, you would go anywhere from 7-10 hour stretches, but now you go anywhere from 3-7 hours. I'm not complaining though, I don't mind seeing your sweet smiles in the middle of the night :)
You also have become a great napper! You have definitely taken to your wubbanub pacifier and all I have to do is stick that in and you will fall asleep in minutes.
You are typically taking an hour nap in the morning, then a 2ish hour nap early afternoon and then a couple more cat naps the rest of the day.
We are starting to put you to bed between 8 and 9pm and you usually wake up for the day around 7am
You have been sleeping in your own room for several weeks now and do great. Except, because you are a tummy sleeper, you scoot to the one side of your crib and get wedged in there and I think that is what wakes you up sometimes during the night. We need to figure out how to keep you from moving around so much.
Month 1 and 2, you had to eat every 2.5 hours, but now it's every 3 hours. If I try to feed you before that, you will get VERY mad!
You have decided you don't like bottles. We need to fix that because that makes it very hard for mom to leave you for more than 3 hours!
You took another airplane ride to California this past week and did pretty well. You are a great flyer but you were definitely not yourself during parts of the trip. Your stomach was pretty upset for several days and I could tell you were in some pain. I'm wondering if you are becoming sensitive to dairy, I haven't had dairy in a couple days and you have been fine. Bummer if that is the case because that means no ice cream...booo!!!
We love you so much little girl!!!

Here is the latest video of our girl "talking"...she sounds more like a kitty cat :)

So cute! It's fun dressing a girl, isn't it?

Love reading this. Ella is only a couple weeks behind her, so they are right there. They sound pretty similar (minus the dairy part). Hope it's not dairy (for your sake!)
