Month Three

Dear Liliana,

You are now 3 months old! I can't believe that 3 months have passed since you were born. When I write the next monthly letter, you will no longer be considered a newborn!

You have changed so much over the past month! You went from a constantly sleeping lump of a newborn to a laughing, grinning baby!

You are deliciously chubby! You haven't been weighed this month, but I'm guessing you are over 13 lbs and over 25 inches long. You wear a size 1 diaper and mostly 0-3 month clothes, though some outfits are 3-6 months. Your hair is really starting to grow in. You have the sweetest light blonde fuzz sprouting. I love your fuzzy head! Your eyes are still blue, and your dimples more prominent now that you're smiling bigger. You got your first tooth the day before you turned 3 months old!

You still sleep so well! You usually go to bed between 7-8, then I nurse you before I fall asleep between 11-12. You sleep until your next feeding, which is between 6-7 in the morning. After you eat, you go back to sleep until 9-10. You take several naps throughout the day. Some are long, lasting 3 hours, while others are just a short 1 hour nap.

You are still being exclusively breast fed. You are a very quick eater, unless you happen to fall asleep while nursing. Over the past month, you decided that you didn't really like the occasional bottle anymore. We really need to work on that, because Papa has to watch you once or twice a month, while I do things with Dylan and Lexie.

You are a strong baby! You love to stand up, and you are so good at pushing your chest off the floor now. You hold your head up steady. You manage to scoot around in your crib by pushing off with your feet. You know how to roll both directions, but you don't do it very often. You prefer to roll to your side and play.

You are teething like crazy. You constantly chew on your hands and anything else you can get in your mouth! I've never had a drooling baby, but I think you may be my first!

Your favorite things right now are your hands, your binky, your puppy bouncer, and your jumperoo!

You are the happiest baby! You are so sweet, smiley, and content! You smile so much, especially when you wake up. That dimply smile makes my day!

I was told that you would be an easy-going baby, since you have two older siblings. Everybody was right! You go with the flow, and smile through it! You are the BEST shopping sidekick. You sleep or people watch through all our excursions!

You love people. You are quick to offer a smile to anybody that talks to you! I love that you are so happy and easy-going. I can already tell that you're going to be a charmer!

You resemble Lexie, but the truth is, you are the girl version of your big brother. You look like him. You have the same coloring, the same dimples, the same nose, and it appears that you are going to have the same baby mohawk that he had! You have the same happy, loving, laid-back personality. You are very much like your sister in the sense that you already love to "talk" a lot!

Now that we're 3 months in, I can honestly say that it feels as if you have been with us forever. You comlete our family. You are so loved by so many. You melt my heart every single day, and I can't even remember what my life was like before you came into it. I am so lucky to be your mom, and to call you my baby! I love you so much, Lily-girl!!!
