3 months

Caroline is 3 months old today! She turned 13 weeks on Sunday and 3 whole months today! I know I will blink my eyes and she will be 6 months, then a year, then three!! A friend told me that her mother used to tell her "the days are long, but the years are short" .... I must say I agree. Our days are certainly full around here - and sometimes feel very long, but in all honesty it really flies by. The first year they grow and change so much - more than they will at any other time in their life - a lot of accomplishments in such a short time. So, we're holding on tight and trying to cherish these sweet moments with our wee one!


August 15, 2011 - 3 months old
(trying hard to sit up by yourself)

This past week was a HUGE week for sweet Caroline - she started school and had a great week - only one really fussy day - WOO HOO!! We are so proud - and she still seemed to like it today too!

So here is what our 3 month old is up to:



  • sleeping great again - you have gone 6-9 hours every night this week


  • you are on the move - you can scoot yourself around in circles in the crib and on the play mat

  • you can hold your head steady now while pulling up to a sitting position

  • you want to see the world... you don't like to be carried unless facing out


  • you rode in the BOB stroller for the first time this week without your car seat - you loved it!

  • you are smiling more and talking lots

  • you are still a bit fussy when nursing, but typically only the second feeding of the day - the rest are all fine

  • you are eating 6 times a day - and I'm still able to feed you at work - which is so nice!


  • you are able to wear a lot of your 3 month clothes


  • you are having more good days - we are SO hopeful this is the end of colic - 3-4 months is when it ends - at least that is what everyone has said - here's hoping to it being 3 months.


  • you have been working hard on rolling over - you are just about a centimeter away from being able to roll completely to your right side


  • you are starting to grab objects on your play mat


  • your birth announcements finally went out :)

we sure love this sweet face

Joy indeed
