Three Months Old!

Reese is three months old today! The last three months have flown by - time just continues to pass so quickly. At this point Reese is cooing like a champ and having little "coo-versations." She grabs onto to anything and everything within her little grasp, including hair and whatever is feeding her (me or the bottle). She does a pretty decent job with tummy time even though she hates it. She's super skilled at holding her head up and she's started to try to pull herself up into a seated position. She's eating 6-7 times a day and only wakes up once a night to eat (I'm trying to shuffle her schedule because she goes a long time without eating between 3am and noon - I feel like that should be her nighttime schedule). She's a great sleeper when she's swaddled and she very rarely cries. Based on some home measurements this morning she's about 13 pounds, 14 ounces and about 24 inches tall. She always smiles at her big brother and her Mommy and Daddy.

At three months she's already fought through lung problems, been on her first trip to Disney World, seen Santa Claus twice and she's about to have her first Thanksgiving! We are enormously thankful that our little girl was able to pull through her rough first few weeks and jump on the developmental track with all the other babies her age. Her next monthly "birthday" will be on Christmas! Our little Reesie Cup is such a blessing!

Last night after seeing Santa Claus!

Lounging on her boppy and smiling
Huge smile!

Half smile!

  1. Happy three month birthday Reese. Kellen is two months on Thanksgiving. He is still lagging on the weight gain, so we are hoping once he catches up, he will sleep better! I miss once a night wake-ups!
