Three Months Old

Dear Caroline,

Today you are three months old!

My beautiful little girl, you are such a happy happy baby.  You smile ALL. OF. THE TIME. and you light up whenever you see your mom, dad, or sister.  You are so loved and you have completed our family.

You have had an incredibly busy month and you have loved every single minute.  You started the month by celebrating Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania with all of your Dad's side of the family.  You met great aunts and uncles, cousins, and of course stayed with your Nana and Pap Pap.  You were so loved on by everyone.

You had your first snow during Thanksgiving and you loved watching your sister play outside in it. 

At the beginning of December you met your cousin, Jennifer, when she flew in for Jessica's baby shower.  You were such a happy baby and loved spending time with Jennifer.

In December we went to see the Zoo Lights at the National Zoo and you enjoyed sleeping through the entire trip.

You, your sister, and I enjoyed lots of days inside taking pictures of you girls in your cute Christmas outfits.  We also went to the gym a lot so Mommy could run on the treadmill.

The weekend before Christmas, we picked up Gramps from her hotel and we went to see Santa at the mall.  Then we enjoyed lunch and visiting with Jessica and Noah.

You have spent your first Christmas in Pennsylvania with Daddy's relatives and again you have been loved on by so many people.  You spent Christmas with Nana and Pap Pap, Uncle Adam and Aunt Brigette, Mommy, Daddy, and Elizabeth.  All of your great aunts and uncles and cousins came over on Christmas day for dinner.  Santa came to visit you and brought you a ton of goodies that you have been enjoying.

Today you weight 13 1/2 pounds and we are guessing you are around 24 inches long.  You wear a size 2 diaper and 3-6 or 6 month clothes.  You are taking four bottles a day, with six ounces in each bottle.  You eat when you wake up around 7am, then again at 11am, then 3pm, and between 6-7pm.  You sleep from about 7pm-7am and take 2 or 3 naps during the day.

You absolutely LOVE the tummy time mat as long as you are on your back.  You will lay on the tummy time mat and play for about an hour.  You grab all of the toys that hang from it and love to put them in your mouth.  You sit in the bumbo a few times a day, but really prefer to be held.  You love to sit up in mommy or daddy's arms and watch your sister play.  You don't like pacifiers and prefer to suck on your fist.

Below are some pictures of your adventures from the last month:
