3 Months

Hadley turned 3 months old on the 3rd.

She weighs 13 lbs, 3 oz. and is 24 inches long.

She wears 3-6 month clothes and a size 2 diaper.

So, Hadley, what have you been up to this month?

You started laughing this month. Best. Sound. Ever. You are such a happy baby the majority of the time and have the biggest smile. You smile with your whole face...I love your happy, squinty eyes!

You still take most of your naps in your car seat, but you are snoozing less and staying awake more. You are a really easygoing baby and are content most of the time. You happily sit through your brother's karate and your sister's dance classes and just look around and take it all in. You went with Beda and me to Canton and never fussed once the entire 2 days of shopping. As long as you had your paci and the white noise app on my phone, you were good to go and drifted in and out of sleep in your stroller. I'm sure it will get more challenging as you become mobile, but for now you really are a breeze! (THANK YOU!)

You are nursing about 7 or 8 times a day. We aren't on a strict schedule but it usually averages around every 3 hours during the day. At night you usually sleep 8 hours before the next feed and then go right back to sleep until it's time to leave to take Harrison to school. One night you even went 12 hours between feeds! I try not to stretch it out that far though because I don't want my milk supply to dip. You are an efficient eater and are usually done nursing in under 10 minutes. And you are such a good sleeper once you're down for the night. (once again, THANK YOU!!!)

You make the funniest expressions. For the first month before you became really smiley, you looked mad all the time. In fact, one of the nicknames your daddy gave you is Angry Baby. You aren't actually angry very often, but you can give some mean glares. You still have RBF from time to time but you also make so many other silly faces as well and you LOVE to stick out your tongue.

You are a wiggle worm and are getting so close to rolling over. I have a feeling it will be any day now. You are also getting too big for your swing. You still aren't a very big fan of tummy time but love to lie on your back and stare up at the ceiling fan. We got out the bumbo but you aren't too fond of it yet.

Let's see...what else? You had your first trip to the zoo. You love chewing on your hands. You are a huge mama's girl. You are baby number three, and yet all of your firsts and milestones are still just as exciting and when I look into your gorgeous blue eyes, the love I feel for you literally makes my heart hurt. We adore you, Haddie Lou, and are thankful for the joy that you bring!
