3 Months

Violet you are 3 months old!


Sometimes it feels like we blinked and it's been 3 months and sometimes it feels like we've had you forever.

Last month your doctor said you were doing so well that you could skip this month's visit so we don't have exact measurements on you. We estimate that you weigh about 13 1/2 pounds.

Bundled up for a morning walk in August...what the heck!?!
 This month you have really started talking to us. Your voice is the sweetest sound ever! Sometimes you just lay there and coo and smile and talk and it is just so sweet:) I have a video but cannot figure out for the life of me how to load it...

 You're trying to grab onto things a little more. We've been trying to get you to hold onto the rings on your play gym but mostly you hold onto us which is ok too:)

You've also been really good at following people with your eyes and turning your head to see what's going on. We can tell that you are very interested in what's going on around you and experiencing new sights and sounds.

My Smiley Girl:)
 You are also starting to suck on your hands more and more. You have really taken to a pacifier this past month and when you don't have it you put those hands right up to your mouth. I have a feeling we might have a thumb sucker one day...

Tummy time is still a no go:( We keep trying and you keep crying. One day I was able to distract you for about five minutes but as soon as you realized you were on your belly, the tears turned on.

Last weekend you got to go on your first ever vacation! I'll write about that in a separate post but you did so much better than I expected and I think you are going to love to travel just like Mommy and Daddy!

On a side note, I have been saying for a while that Violet says "momma" when she cries and Steve denies that this happens. When we were on our trip she did this in front of all her grandparents and they all heard it so I'm going to go ahead and record that as a three month milestone:)

You are still sleeping really well. Usually about 7 hours average and every once in a while we get a 9 hour night. We are so blessed that you are a good sleeper right now!

Life is so much sweeter with you in it and we are so honored that we get to be your parents. It's not always easy but it's sooo worth the effort! 

I can't hardly even remember that little 1 month old already!
