Our girl is 3 months today!!
We did our monthly photo shoot today and I could NOT get a smile out of our normally jolly girl. We are in the middle of her 3 month grow spurt and she has been fussier than normal.
Loves: her hands!, her pacifier when she is trying to go to bed, listening to anyone talk, smiling at anyone talking to her, just started watching Benjamin play, being outside, baths, watching her mobile, the fan, cartoons when Benjamin is (her focus is crazy good), being swaddled
Not a fan of: having her clothes/diaper changed, taking her medicine, the car
Rebecca is still proving to be a great baby and is brings so much joy to our lives! She is eating every three hours during the day and takes 4 naps that are typically around an hour long. I try super hard to stretch her bedtime to 7 but most night she is fed at 6 and in her crib around 6:30. She plays and is asleep around 7, up around 1, 4, and then 7. Rarely do I feed her in the middle of the night and she is asleep right after. She can be up from 30 minutes - 2 hours every time I feed her. She is still super social and loves to party in the middle of the night. She will be whining in her crib and hear me come in the room and smiles until she sees me. She gets very sad that I am not in the party mood and she needs to go nigh nigh. :) At 4 am this morning Will went to put her pacifier in and she wouldn't stop grinning at him. Hopefully this next month our nights will get a little better and she will stop thinking night time is fun and go to sleep!
Pop has given each grand baby nicknames - Luke = Shark Bait (Loved the movie Nemo), Benjamin = Scooter (sounds great with Schmid, Scooter Schmid and also took him FOREVER to walk so he scooted a long time), Audrey = Cricket (her legs looked like cricket legs when she was born...
Rebecca was named Bizzy at the hospital. I told my Dad that it was too early to call her Bizzy and he insisted it would match her personality... boy was he right!! She is Bizzy, Bizzy, Bizzy all day and night long!
Luckily I have back up to prove that normally she is a happy little gal.
She loves to fight sleeping.
Tummy time is very different this time around. Benjamin took FOREVER to roll over so I figured Rebecca would be the same way. Majority of the time her tummy time last 20 seconds because she is quick to roll. She has been doing this since she was around a month old!
Crazy mom face, cute baby bubble face.
This month Rebecca got a new friend...
She waited patiently at the hospital waiting for her to arrive...
Rebecca and her besties- Savannah Kate and Audrey Claire.
The New Gang.
(This was the best one!)
Month 3 has been a great one with this doll!
Baby goals for next month - Sleeping better at night, weaning from the swaddle, and napping longer than 45 minutes during the day.
We sure do love our life with our Rebecca!
