Felicity 3 Months

3 months old

Hallelujah! We have exited the "4th trimester" and in my mind, we are done with the newborn stage. Felicity is 3 months old today! She is a chatty, active and smiley baby. She loves playing with her stuffed pink fox and elephant, she likes bouncing on my lap and loves to watch her big brother's antics. We've been reading to the two of them, and often she is really interested... Even though it's usually books about vehicles. :-) boy life. Wilder loves to "play with her" in the evenings, which is usually Felicity lying on a blanket or sitting on my lap while Zach and Wilder play in Wilder's room. But he will come over and sit right beside her and say sweet things about her. His version of hugging is just getting right up next to her and saying "aww. So tinylittle." :-) he loves when she's on her tummy. He falls over laughing and says "crawling! Crawling!"

She smiles quickly and often, and can be very vocal, even loud. She really tries to communicate with her baby talk. And she is always moving, unless she's nursing or sleeping. She kicks her legs, waves her arms and wiggles around. She can roll onto her side and is a pro at tummy time. She wishes she was walking already and will attempt it, with lots of assistance.

She's still exclusively breast fed and that is going wonderfully. We have been trying to get her to take a bottle of pumped milk and that is not going well. We have tried an assortment of bottles and nipples, for a month straight, but it's still a no-go. I'm really hoping she takes to it soon, for the occasional need for me to be away from her.

Because Felicity is bottle free, she's gone on four photo shoots with me. She's done great in the boba wrap! She hates the car seat and stroller and sometimes cries her eyes out when I put her in them. So the driving to and from the photo shoots has been tough. I am hoping she outgrows that.

Felicity sleeps in her pack n play most of the time. Just this week she began preferring to nap in the pnp instead of her swing! And several times this week she's slept most or all of the night in her bed. She gets up 1-3 times a night to nurse. She takes about 3 naps a day.

Felicity weighs 12 pounds 13 ounces and is 25 1/4-inches tall. Felicity is in size 1 diapers and either 3-6 month or 6 month clothes.

It feels like Felicity has been a part of our family for a long time, but it's only been 3 months. We love our bright-eyed baby girl and I live for her sweet smiles and snuggles.
