Hazel 3 months
(October 11, 2014) Three months was a blur. Well, it has honestly all been a blur. It is amazing how quickly you have become a vital part of this family. This month brought on some of my favorite milestones...that lovely smile and laugh you made us wait for. You have the most adorable smile and the cutest laugh the few times I have heard it. You also make this adorable face where you only lift your eyebrows, it might be the cutest thing I have ever seen. You seem to really recognize our voices and faces now and react when you see us which is so fun. You have been noticing toys more and will bat at them and try to reach them. You are not yet grabbing them. We have started to use the Bumbo, and you seem to like to be in that sitting position. It is nice to have some different placed to put you for a few minutes that will keep you semi-happy. You still love to be in the swing as well. You mostly prefer to be held, so the sling still is a daily use item. You love to be held close in it and usually still fall asleep when I use it.
As for sleep, you have maintained your good sleep routine and only wake 1-2 times a night. I am still thankful for each night of good sleep, knowing full well it can change. You are still sleeping in our bed in the co-sleeper, and also still like to be swaddled. You use a wubbanub at night (well, anytime you aren't happy really). I like having you so close, but we are beginning to realize we need to move you to the bassinet soon because you are going to outgrow the co-sleeper soon.
You are nursing like a champ, and seem to be gaining weight well. No issues on that front. So, baby girl...month three has gone wonderfully and I love you more and more each day!
