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

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!
