Natalie, You Are 3 Months Old! Wait a Minute...

Yes.  You read that right.  3 months. 

Yes.  Natalie was 3 months old on April 15th. 

So really, she is over 4 months old.

Mom fail.

But I figured I had to post some 3 month stats as I am posting her 4 month post tomorrow.  So let's just go with it, okay?

But first, some picture outtakes.  Someone was SO not pleased to be photographed.  

Couldn't resist.  Isn't she just the cutest screaming baby you have ever seen??

That's better.

Sweet girl, you are growing so fast!  You are in size two diapers and wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes.

The best part about this month is that you have started sleeping through the night!  And not like, oh I'm sleeping 6 hours through the night.  Like a solid 12 hours.  Your Daddy and I are so lucky and we could not be more thankful to you little girl.  Keep it up!

You are smiling up a storm these days and you've started "talking."  It really is the coolest thing ever.  I feel like we're actually having conversations even though neither one of us understands the other :)  

You've discovered your hands and feet this month and are very active with both.  You're hitting your toys on your activity mat with a purpose now, which is such a change from last month.  It's so much fun watching you learn!

We've been practicing sitting and standing this month and you are really improving on your head control.  I know you'll be sitting up on your own in no time!

You started going to the nursery at church and it has been going really well.  For the most part you have been very well behaved even when taking your bottle.  The sweet ladies did have to page Mama once because you were still hungry after you finished eating.  Shocking, I know.

You had a visit from your Grandma and Aunt Dood this month.  They were so sweet to come visit when Daddy went out of town.  Mama wasn't quite ready to handle you on her own for so many days.  Unfortunately, we discovered you have a hard time letting other people hold you and you are quite attached to your Mama.  You didn't let Grandma hold you hardly at all!  I hope this changes very soon as I know it made her sad.  

You are still exclusively breastfeeding and consistently eating every 2 hours.  Mommy is so happy we have been able to stick to this way of feeding.  We're starting to really get the hang of things little girl.

You've also enjoyed Skyping with Grandma and Grandpa this month as well as taking your first of hopefully many walks in the stroller.

You are the light of our lives sweet girl and I could not be more thankful to have you in our lives.  You're a perfect fit to our little family and I love you so much!

Haha. I read the title and was like....really, it's only been 3 months? Surely she's older than that! Being a full time mom definitly cuts into your blogging time!
