. . . for Lauren and Lauren: three months blur

October 21, 2013

three months blur


Dear Addi Jane, 

I'm pretty sure I can't call you a newborn anymore, which seems crazy to me! You are growing so fast and it seems like every few days you are learning something new. 
The other day I packed away your newborn and zero to three month clothes and it made me a little sad. People told me all the time that those first three months would seem like a blur and they are so right.  It's hard to believe that you are three months old.   You are so long that you are wearing six month onsies, which your dad and I still can't believe you are so tall!  I'm excited to see where you fall on the charts at your four month appointment.  
This month you've met a lot of baby friends and have had many play dates.  It's really fun that you get to grow up with other babies and that we get to spend many days with friends.  
As the days have been getting colder we've been bundling up a little more for our walks.  You are SO cute in your little hats and comfy clothes.  You are so good when we go for walks which I love! You usually fall asleep on and off while we walk.  The same thing happens when we are in the car.  Usually if you aren't sleeping you are talking on and on to the caterpillar that hangs from your carseat.  I feel so lucky that you are a good car rider, as it's nice to get out of the house most days.  
You went on your first little vacation this month as we spent 5 days with my family at a lake house in Wisconsin.  This was your first time meeting your aunt, uncle, cousins and great grandma.  They all love you SO much and loved playing with you and spending time with you.  
One of my favorite things about this month is that you've decided you LOVE your stuffed animal bunny.  It amazes me that you already have such a strong preference.  There have been times where I can't get you to fall asleep and I set you in your bouncy seat with your pacifer and your bunny and you hug it and fall asleep. You love it when it's in the carseat with you too.  It is the cutest thing! 

This month you rolled over from your back to your stomach but then would get unhappy because you couldn't roll back over.  I actually wasn't too excited because that means I couldn't walk away for any amount of time when you were on the floor.  It's funny though because you haven't been doing it lately so maybe you've forgotten?  You've also started talking like crazy.  You'll go on and on telling us all about something! I love your little voice and the way your top lip makes this triangle and your bottom lip goes in when you coo.  I know that won't last forever and I'm sure I'll miss it! 

You play with your hands a lot and hold them together, bend them and intertwine them all the time.  You also like to put your hands in your mouth, along with anything else you get a hold of.  I thought maybe you were teething because you are drooling tons and always put things in your mouth, but no sign of teeth yet!
This month we've started getting into a little more of a routine and started putting you down for a morning nap in your pack and play by our bed.  Some days you sleep over an hour.  The other naps you still take on me and I love it.  I still can't get enough of staring at your sweet face and also love the chance to sit on our couch and rest while you sleep.  At night you are pretty inconsistent, sometimes sleeping 4 hours and sometimes 8, but usually somewhere in the middle.  It's very unpredictable! 

I've left you a few times for an hour or two with your daddy and twice you've stayed with your grandparents for a few hours while your daddy and I went out for a bit.  I'm still nervous to be away from you but you've done great when I've been gone.  
My favorite two pictures from this month are one from our family vacation and one from when we put you in a pumpkin.  You big eyes are the cutest things and everyone always comments on them.  I know I said it last month, but your dad and I still say to each other all the time "how did we get so lucky?"  We're pretty convinced we have the cutest and best baby in the world.  We love you so much!
Love, 

your mom

Putting away the 0-3 month clothes was so hard for me. It is so crazy how fast time flies... And it doesn't seem to slow down any.

Love the side-by-side month comparisons.

Addi is such a beautiful little girl!

WOW I just can not believe that Addi is 3 months already. It seems like I was just looking at your post when you had her a few days ago.

She is the sweetest baby. Love all the pictures and the pumpkin one is still one of my favorites.
