at 3 months

sunday….

 

at age 3 months (yesterday), sam is in a growth spurt. i’ve been getting up 3-4 times a night for the past 4 nights or so. i hope this is over. i’m exhausted. 

 

despite being frustrated with her current never-ending need to eat, i do love my sweet baby girl. here’s a list describing sam at 3 months:

- loves music

- enjoying her mobile and play mat with musical lion (she likes to bat it)

- loves to be upright (being held or in the bjorn)

- wants to face out – no cuddling!

- sometimes will sleep for a 5-hour stretch (when not in a growth spurt)

- eating every 2.5-3 hours during this growth spurt

- still wearing 0-3 month clothing (though all her 3-6 month stuff is washed and ready to wear)

- won’t keep shoes on her feet (kicks them off) – still has LONG, skinny feet

- still spits up regularly, despite getting a dose of zantac 2x daily

- snores

- loves to smile (we don’t remember davey smiling as much as sam does)

- is easily startled 

- adores her big brother

- poops at least once a day 

- is starting to tolerate bathtime

- loves when i tickle her face with a chunk of my hair – she "coos" when i do it!

- will drink formula but hasn’t liked any of the frozen pumped milk yet (haven’t tried much)

- does best when i avoid caffeine, chocolate, orange juice, excessive salt (like chex mix) and carbonated beverages, dairy…….. unfortunately for both of us, i can’t give it all up every day!

- holds her head up with very limited "bobbling"

- can sit in her bumbo seat for short periods of time (with something behind it – like the couch or armchair)

- LOVES the swing

 

 

oh yeah – doesn’t sam look cute in her warm dress from Miss Elizabeth (owner of my favorite store – Treasury of Memories)? and those tights from the $1 spot at target are the perfect compliment…. they even look like little pink mary janes!

 

and my bargain hunting continues. i found a smokin’ deal on craigslist this weekend…. davey got a new toy:

 

i found this bargain for only $5 (and it includes some tools and screws and stuff) AND i only had to travel to the "other side" of lynden to get it! and as you can see, davey loves it already!

  1. I hope Sam grows to like your thawed milk! Kellan would scream when I gave it to him, even if I mixed it with fresh milk–I have no idea why–my pediatrician said it shouldn’t be any different, but he could definitely tell. I can’t tell you how much it killed me because I ended up having to THROW IT OUT–almost an entire freezer full. What a waste hours and hours of pumping. I hope Sam isn’t as picky!

  2. Wow – 3 months! Do you even remember your family without her? Kinda seems like they’ve always been there, huh. Awesome deal on the work bench for Davey!

  3. LOVE the toy! ;O) Great find and perfect for all his Visser Tools! ;O) So happy for you… We need to come over and help you break it in some more… I”m sure Henry would love to help with that!
