Catelin at 3 Months

My sweet girl is already 3 months old.  As I watch her become more aware of the world around her, I realize that she is not a newborn anymore.  She loves to smile at people, especially when they are talking to her.  I swear she is trying to talk back – she starts cooing and babbling (she is even on the verge of laughing at times)!

Catelin is doing really well with her head control, so we started sitting her in the Bumbo  (which she enjoys for a few minutes and then wants to get out).  She will still go in her swing for short periods of time (and may even take a cat nap), but she is starting to grow out of it.  Her favorite chair is the rainforest chair (even though the boys have sat on it so much that it lies almost all the way back)!

The boys can’t stand it when she is on her playmat alone- they just have to join her!

Catelin is still sleeping like a champ.  About 2 weeks ago, she started getting tired earlier in the evening (she had been going to bed between 9:00 and 9:30), so we decided to start putting her down around 8:15.  On the days that I work, I actually wake her up at 7:00 to nurse her before I leave; the other days she sleeps until somewhere between 7:30 and 8:00.  Last week she broke out of her swaddle twice (and trust me, I had her wrapped tight) – I fear we will be transitioning out of it soon.  Hopefully it will go well!

She loves her brothers and they are equally crazy about her.

Her nursing still isn’t great, so she is getting mostly pumped breast milk and some formula during the day.  In general, she eats about 5-6 ounces every 2.5-3 hours. 

This little girl is the ultimate trooper.  She came with us on all of our trips to the park, zoo, museums, pool, etc. this summer and did great.  Having a baby in June was tough with two toddlers out of school! 

Here are a few pictures from our trip to Lego Land last week:
