Three Months

Sweet jeebus!  Our little sizzle britches is 3 months old today!

All of a sudden she is starting to grow really fast.  We started supplementing with formula about three weeks ago and I swear she has hit a major growth spurt since then.  She's not a flimsy little newborn anymore, she's now a solid, substantial baby!

The girl eats.  A lot.  I'm talking like 5-10 ounces at a time these days. I think part of it is that she isn't eating (or sleeping) well at daycare.  The little daily report she brings home with her is all like 1.5 ounces here and 2 ounces there....then she comes home and gobbles down 10 ounces like she hasn't eaten in a week and passes out cold, sometimes by 7:30pm.

The earlier bed times are good for her though.  She's been sleeping through the night since around 7 weeks and she'll sleep anywhere from 7-11 hours at a time.  Once in a while we'll hit an odd night where she will wake up around 4am, but for the most part she is a good little sleeper. 

Thank God for that, because our first night at home with her, Robert and I both thought we were going to DIE.  I remember thinking, "What the HELL did we just get ourselves into??!"

At 3 months, Kylie is on the verge of rolling over.  She makes it just about to her stomach and then will roll back.  Mostly this is motivated by eating.  She roots around and tries to nurse on whatever surface she is laying on, which results in her rolling almost completely over.  Once she realizes her bed, blanket or whatever doesn't have a boob, she'll roll back to her back.  

The sweet baby has some rhythm already, which is kinda cool.  We have music on in the house often and about 3 weeks ago I was feeding her a bottle and the song "Best Mamgu Ever" by Underworld came on the Jambox and she started bobbing her little head and moving her feet in time with the music.  I was amazed!  

She digs music, so I try to play a variety for her.  I'm not so much into Twinkle, Twinkle and crap like that, so she's listening to Dave Matthews, Pink, 311, Led Zeppelin, Nine Inch Nails, etc.  I know, I know, she probably needs to learn those baby songs so she can be part of the "in" crowd at preschool, but we have a lot of time to work on that.

She is smiling a lot and laughing these days and she is quite a talker.  The expressions on her face are priceless when she's talking.  She has so much to say and she'll raise her eyebrows and look all kinds of serious about whatever she's jabbering about. I see a lot of detention for talking too much in her future.

Kylie was introduced to her jumperoo this past week and she likes it!  We had to put a folded up blanket under her feet because her legs aren't long enough to touch the ground yet.  With the blanket in place she is able to get some bouncy-action going on.

Her BFF is still the ceiling fan.  She loves to look at and talk to any ceiling fan.

She loves baths and has discovered how to kick her legs to make the water splash out of her bath tub. Robert and/or I end up soaked after every bath, but it sure is fun to watch her play, so it's all good!

All in all, our silly baby girl is just wonderful!  She amazes us every single day and she gets more fun and much easier to handle as time goes on.  We cannot believe how fast the first three months has flown by, but, as the saying goes, "Time flies when you're having fun!"
