All About Sydney - 3 months!

Sydney, you're 3 months old!!

Stats at your 3 month doctor's appointment:
This wasn't a well visit so they weighed you with your clothes on.
Weight: 12 lbs - 10oz
Length: 23"

You're wearing size 3 month clothing.

You wear a size 2 diaper.

You're eating about every 4 hours during the day.
You're taking 3 bottles of formula a day and nurse 3x's a day. 
You're taking 6oz per bottle.

You take your last bottle between 10pm-11pm and sleep until 7am every morning!
You're taking a 3 hour nap in the mornings and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.
This is exactly when your big sister started sleeping through the night as well. 
Mommy couldn't ask for a better baby.

You're "talking" to us all the time now.
We love hearing you "coo"
You work so hard to get those sweet sounds out!

You just started laughing out loud and it melts our hearts every time we hear you!
Mommy has learned just the spot to tickle under your neck.
I get a laugh just about every time!

You prefer to sit up.  You only want to lie back if you're eating or sleeping.
You've had a strong neck since the day you were born!
And every time I try to do tummy spit up.

You love pulling blankets, burp cloths, your clothes, pretty much anything, up to your mouth.

We love your dark blue eyes.

Your constantly blowing bubbles and drooling on your clothes.
I never had to put a bib on your sister but I think I better stock up on some for you! :)

You've started playing with your hair on the side of your head. 
You mostly do it while I'm feeding/nursing you.

Your feet/legs are always up in the air.
You've done this since the day you were born.
All of the nurses asked us if you were breech.  I guess breech babies keep their legs in the air??
You weren't just love to look at your feet, I guess. :)
You also have the strongest legs I've ever seen.  Trying to bend them is not an easy task.

You love to hold our finger when we're holding you. 
Pure sweetness.

Have I mentioned you're a happy baby!?
We don't have to work very hard for that beautiful smile.  All we have to do is talk to you!

It's not funny but sometimes Amelia and I sing to you and you cry.
We think we sound pretty good.
I'm thinking you just don't like our song choice sometimes.
Okay, so it's a little funny.

You don't mind being in your car seat but you like to be moving if we're in the car.
If we stop at a stoplight - you wake up and fuss.
We just pray that we hit all the green lights wherever we're going! :)

You love for your big sister to give you back massages.

Any time your big sister is around - you're watching her - and usually smiling from ear to ear!

I'm thinking she taught you this...

Your family loves you so much, little one.

We're so thankful God chose YOU to be our baby girl!!

Kaleb used to do this when I would sing to him - cry and say "don't sing Grandma". I think he did it because it was suually nap time.
