Three Months Old

Three Months Old

Baby girl, you’re 3 months old! Holy cow!

We thankfully haven’t needed the doctor this month, so it’s just a home weight and measurement. On our home scale she’s 12.5 lbs and around 23 inches.

This month, she’s still wearing 0-3 clothing and size 1 diapers. Her face looks round and full, but her body is still petite. All my friends’ babies who were born around the same time are starting to move on to 3-6 months clothing, but I think we will get another month or two in 0-3.

She’s still eating 4 ounces every 3-4 hours during the day, but we average now 7-8 hours at first go at night. She goes to bed around 8:30-9, wakes up between 3 and 5 a.m., then back down until 7 or 8.

She falls asleep easily at night if she is drowsy but awake at bedtime. Naps are ok-ish. She still prefers to be awake and playing, but will nap if held or if laid down swaddled after a bottle (like at bedtime).  My favorite is napping together on the couch when I get home.

Some Remington facts this month:

She’s grasping toys like a champ. We got several rattles for Christmas and she is holding and shaking them well.

She LOVES when Pippin is near her. He licks her hands (which we discourage, but he’s a wiry little thing that doesn’t listen) and she smiles big.

She’s becoming the MOST CALM baby. Who knew!? She was pretty fussy and high strung her first month of life, but now she’s chilled out. She was the only quiet baby at the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.

She LOVES to sit up. She has to be assisted, like in our laps or in the corner of the recliner, but she loves it.

She is getting great at laying on her side for a few minutes at a time.

She talks A LOT. The funniest was her talking up a storm during church. Happy squeals. She also started “talking” to the baby she sees in the car mirror.

My favorite things is how she smiles and interacts with me when I sing to her.  It’s the sweetest.

She is doing much better in her car seat. In fact, we took a trip to Tulsa that was almost crying-free.

She enjoys baths now that I wash her hair separately (we do sink washes for hair- and she LOVES the sprayer on her head. Like, sister is at the salon getting a head massage.) Doesn’t always love after bath lotion time, but getting better with that thanks to a lotion warmer.

She loves getting dressed and undressed.  Big smiles during that time.

She is consistently rolling from belly to back now. And she is tucking her chin and curling her legs to attempt rolling back to belly….it should happen this month for sure.

She likes play. Doesn’t love just passively being held. Prefers rattles, toys, playtime, looking around.  Can’t live without her play mat. She spends hours there a day.

Nicknames include Remi Roo, Wemi Woo, big girl, fuss bucket, RG Lee, sugar pie, Tootie Toot.

I went back to work which was an adjustment for us all, but I just get lots of snuggles and playtime when I get home.

Remi, you are such a joy. We are so proud of you. Happy first quarter year of life!

Sweet girl, another week has come and gone. And such fun we’re having!

She looked THE CUTEST last Sunday at church in this romper. I died.


I was back to work full time in the office, so Mom kept her a couple of days. Gavin was in visiting, so he was there to help. He was teaching her all about tummy time! ha! He may have fallen asleep playing with her in the floor. img_1580

She’s found her hands in full force. Always chomping on them.img_1564

The few days she was at home with Tyler, I get sweet pics like this. img_1582

Coming home and hanging with my girl is the new highlight of my day. Rocking her to sleep is even sweeter now. img_1579

We had Remi’s first snow! I had to go into work, but when I got home, we went outside for a minute.  She felt the snow and LOVED the marshmallow world. img_1616

She’s doing SO good holding onto toys. These little disc rattles are a fave.img_1601

Look at this snow monkey! So happy out in the crisp air!img_1613

I can’t believe we are 13 weeks into her little life! We are having so much fun!

Week 12 Highlights

A busy week with this little girl. She’s becoming so FUN. Takes everything in, responds to everything, and is just fun to be with.

We spent Friday (a day both Tyler and I had off work) in Tulsa together.  We did some shopping, eating and saw some family.

While we were shopping, we noticed her eyelid was SUPER red (this picture doesn’t do it justice). It’s happened a couple of other times before, but I documented it this time.

The next morning, it was super watery. I called the nurse- likely clogged tear duct. No big deal, but I have to rub her little eye with a warm cloth daily until it goes away.

She slept while we shopped around Tulsa. So sweet.

When she was awake, Tyler gave her a break from the car seat by carrying her around. He got this “Princess Protection” shirt for Christmas. Love it!

She’s becoming a champ at grabbing and holding onto toys. Her fave at the moment is this little rattle that we think looks like a phone. She will take calls on it.  We shake it and put it to her face- and she talks into it. So funny!

And just like that, she’s 12 weeks old! So much fun with this little one!

This week was such a joy. Our Wonder Weeks app says she should be fussy for a developmental leap right about now…but I sort of think it’s already stuff she’s mastered (according to the goals in the book) so she isn’t being crazy at all.

Instead, we got to do some fun stuff together!

I decided to go for a Christmas Eve pedicure! I met Tyler in town for lunch and my nail salon was open….she lasted for about 5 minutes in the car seat, but I was able to hold her while she fell asleep for the rest of it. It was still wonderful!

We had Tyler’s family Christmas a few days early. LOTS of fun eating, playing games, and being snuggled. Well, Remi was snuggled. It would be weird if I was. 

We went to the Christmas party at the nursing home. Dad just LAUGHED AND LAUGHED when she would fuss and say stuff like “Cut that out or I’ll beat your butt!” 

We had my family Christmas in Hot Springs, and the little booger started grasping toys there! They got her this awesome teether/rattle and she loved it and held onto it.

This picture with Caitlyn was the only one I got.  The two family princesses. 🙂 

A fun week of celebrations, indeed!
