Three months old and lots of pink, because… well, two boys.
Can I just eat her? I seriously cannot get enough of this little bug. I might just wear out the shutter on my camera this year. I mean: those cheeks! those chins!
Oh right, three months. It’s significant for a couple of reasons. There’s the fact that three is a significant number for most people anyway, as I was reminded by my favorite show “The Mentalist”. But, for all those parents out there, three months signifies the end of that sleepy newborn/”fourth trimester” stage AND a whole quarter of the first year in the past!
Seriously? Only three more of these to go before she turns one?!
It’s kinda a big deal. Plus, I can now drop her off at the gym childcare! Because, you know: priorities.
I’ve wanted to write this post all week, but it’s actually pretty perfect that I’m writing it today. Yesterday, her first tooth broke through (and the one next to it isn’t far behind, of course)! Looks like our little three month old is following in her big brothers’ footsteps as an early teether. Specifically her oldest brother, though both boys had teeth by 4ish months. We’ll have to see if she decides to roll over in the next week like Dylan did, too.
No rush, Naomi. Seriously, n.o.n.e.
That alone would be exciting news, BUT she also slept entirely through the night in her own crib! Two firsts in one 24 hour period!
She’s done some pretty long stretches at night, but she’s never lasted the entire night without needing to be either cuddled or nursed. She nursed around 6 PM, went to bed around 7:30 PM, woke up about an hour later with a gas bubble, and then was back down for the night. As in, I had to wake her up at 7 AM for my own sake. After TWO boys who couldn’t go more than two-three hours without nursing until they were at least 6 months old and nothing even close to this until 9 months, I’m somewhat in shock. And completely not expecting it to happen again, although really hoping it does! It’s definitely worth recording nonetheless.
Aside from these milestones, she’s just truly a little ray of sunshine. We couldn’t be more blessed by her presence in this family. She’s sweet and happy and incredibly calm. It’s pretty amazing that someone so small can have such a big presence. She brings peace and serenity to this chaotic household and I know we all feel it.
She’s treasured and I so look forward to every.single.day with her.
Speaking of threes, we’re quickly approaching another little person’s three milestone: Wyatt’s third birthday will be here before we know it! But more about that bundle of personality another time…
