1 and 2 month pics

Because I forgot... :)

She doesn't look that different, does she?

3 months old!

Hattie is three months old!The difference between 1, 2, and 3 months old is colossal. I love this age already.

Fashion: Hattie is wearing size 3-6 month clothes now in many cases, but sometimes they're too big. It's amazing how different brands' clothes fit. It's tricky to try things on an infant, so we usually have to go ahead and guess if it'll fit and if not, re-dress her. Which I leave up to Mike if possible because girlfriend does NOT like to put her arms in and out of sleeves.

Health: She is probably somewhere close to 13.5 lbs now. Not sure as her last well visit was at 2 months and we don't have another one until December.  I think she may be teething as she continuously wants to chew on things and drools a ton. When she chews on my knuckle, I wonder what I'll get when it comes out of her mouth. She gums HARD!

Hattie had her first ear infection already. :(  Hoping it's her last. She has been congested for 3 weeks now also. Poor little one.

Zzzzz: She sleeps pretty darn great. And a LOT. TenderCare says she's the best napper in the room (4-5 naps per day, some as long as 1.5 hours!). She sleeps through the night most nights at home, only occasionally getting up once to eat and then goes right back to bed. She has been doing this since 2.5 months. I consider myself VERY lucky and don't take it for granted at all. It's actually hard to get her up in the morning. Like Mama, like daughter. :)   We're transitioning her to the crib slowly. We started out in the Rock n Play and transitioned to the cosleeper a couple of weeks ago. We're not ready for her to be in the crib yet though! We love having her in our room. We're also going to start transitioning her out of swaddlers. We tried one arm out a few weeks ago and she woke herself up too much with her arm jerking around, but it seems like her arms are more calm now so we're going to try it again starting this weekend.

Nicknames this month - Nugget (since she was born), Nugsy, Little One, Pretty Girl

Fitness: Hattie is getting better at tummy time. Which is good since she has a mild flat spot on the back left side of her head and we're trying really hard to correct that. She actually loves sitting up so we sit her in our laps facing us and she has awesome neck strength then. I wish she liked tummy time on the blanket more because I'd like her to work on rolling over. Right now, she just chews on the blanket when we try that. ;p   We also sit her in the Bumbo seat but that freaks her out after a couple of minutes for some reason, so we limit her time there.

Eats: She's up to probably 30 ounces of formula per day. She has been acting funny with bottles and sort of grazing on them so it takes longer to feed her. Hoping that stops soon as feeding her takes a super long time right now.

The Spoken Word: She is 'talking' a lot now. She makes an 'oooooh' sound that melts our hearts. Her little voice sounds so sweet.

Things Hattie Loves:  Chewing on cloth diaper burp cloths, bath time, ceiling fans, Baby Einstein DVDs, lamps, car seat cat, sitting outside and listening to the noises of the world, snuggling with Mama after eating, smiling at Daddy.

Things Hattie Hates: The Nosefrida (so do Mommy & Daddy), being hungry and having to wait for her bottle, waking up from a nap, when the ceiling fan stops spinning, being in the car most times (ugh).
