3 Months!

Josie is 3 months old already!

*She smiles in response to something you say or do. While smiling she turns her head coyly toward her shoulder as if to say 'I'm the cutest little girl in the world'.
*She loves it when you talk with her. She loves to talk and loves it when you copy what she just said.

*She started sucking her thumb on the long weekend. For a long time now she's been sucking her fist, but she finally found her thumb.

*She also started blowing bubbles over the long weekend. Too cute!

*She doesn't like pacifiers. She only takes a soother when Mommy is rocking her to sleep.

*She says 'la' when she's tired and needs to cuddle with Mommy to help her fall asleep.

*She tracks you or other objects in the room.

*She looks for Mommy and Daddy when she hears our voices.

*She is holding up her head, neck and shoulders if still a bit wobbly now and then.

*She eats about 5 to 6 ounces of formula about every 3 hours as compared to 1 ounce when we first brought her home.

*She can sleep anywhere from 6 to 8 hours at night uninterrupted...although I could do without the 5 am wake up call for a feeding then only going back to sleep for another hour.

*She isn't strong on her tummy yet, that head's pretty heavy, lol. She gets frustrated quickly on her tummy, but we're trying to do it more often so she gains more strength. I always forget to do it.

*She loves her crib mobile...I can turn it on for her and have a shower, get dressed and do my hair while she plays.

*She is starting to wear 3 to 6 month clothing, depending on the brand. She has a very long torso so any 2 piece outfits fit well in the pants but the diaper shirts can be a little short.

*She loves her bouncy chair which is nice because now Daddy and Mommy can actually eat dinner together.

* She doesn't cry very much, only if she's tired or is telling us she wants to move on to the next activity, thank you very much.
*She needs to be moving all the time...She is a little wiggle worm.

*She's ok with the car seat as long as the car is moving (I'm becoming talented at slowing down when approaching red lights and timing it so that I don't have to stop and once the light turns green can continue to go, lol...others behind me may not appreciate it but so what!). This means that she hates Tim Horton's drive thru...not good, not good! Never once have I gone through the drive thru without her crying her lungs out...always have to pull over and give her a bottle to calm her down.

Happy 3 months little girl! Mommy loves you!
Letting me actually sit down while in the baby bjorn...doesn't happen often, lol.
Lounging in the hot Okanagan heat.
Big smiles...what a cutie!
