Kennedy: 3 Months

Miss Kennedy Isabelle - you are 3 months old!  I was just telling someone the other day, I don't know if you are doing things faster/earlier than your siblings or if time is really just flying by that much faster!?   You are such a sweet baby and your siblings really love you.  My favorite time of the time is getting you out of your crib in the morning.  Your face just lights up.  Here is what you are up to nowadays.  You are....

  • eating 5 oz to 6 oz every 3 - 3.5 hours during the day. Like clockwork. If you are snoozing soundly, I will let you go 4 hrs before I wake you.
  • For 3 weeks now, you have been sleeping 10:30 pm to 7:30 am. Wow! Momma thanks you!  There have been a few morning I have had to wake you at 8 am to get our day started.
  • We are still working on getting you tired at the 7:30 pm timeframe.  That is usually awake time for you.  You will take a bottle around 7 and will eventually be going to bed then but right now, you like to party and are often awake until you are fed again around 10 pm.
  • still swaddled, arms out.
  • Rolling over!  I put you down on your back and within minutes you are on your tummy.  You can keep rolling usually the same direction back to your back.
  • You love to smile.  You are just the happiest baby.  If you are fussy, you are tired or hungry... maybe dirty but usually that doesn't bother you.
  • a happy spitter.  Trying to figure out what I may be eating that is causing it although, you don't seem to care.
  • exclusively breastmilk-fed from a bottle.  I pump all day, every day.
  • Have moved up from a Level 1 nipple on your bottle to a Level 2 and in return of eating faster, you want to eat more!
  • love the lights from the television
  • starting to grab your toys that hang on your play mat.
  • suck your thumb.  Oh no!  You will take a paci but prefer your thumb, either one.  
  • don't like being held like a baby.  You prefer sitting up and looking out.
  • love to sleep on your belly.  You will be playing and the next thing I know you have rolled onto your tummy, sucked your thumb, and put yourself to sleep.   At night you sleep on your back in your crib in your room.
  • Have stopped losing your hair.  You shed a little bit of it your first couple months but it appears what is left is here to stay.  
  • Get to talking if you are talked to. It is pretty cute!
  • Made your first trip to Oklahoma this past month and met a bunch of Daddy's family.
  • Haven't been away from Mommy overnight yet.
  • Love bath time.
  • Have the prettiest blue eyes just like your siblings.
  • Wearing 0-3 month clothes and sleepers.  Just about out of your 3 month onesies depending on the brand.  You have a long little torso.
  • Size 1 shoes are still a little big.
  • Wearing size 1 diapers

You are loved BIG time, sweet thing.  You bring so much joy to our everyday.  I can't imagine life without you in it.  Let's see what month 4 brings!
