Growing, Growing...Gone!

Gone...Where has the time gone? 3 months old...12 weeks (well now it's 13 weeks) since you made your debut on this earth. You are such a smiley baby (except when you're having tummy issues, which isn't nearly as often any more). You've started chuckling at different things, mostly the big kids that love to entertain you. You rolled from your belly to your back intentionally for the first time at 12 weeks old and you rolled from your back to your belly for the first time today (13 weeks). You are a GREAT sleeper. You still go to bed around 9:30 or 10 and sleep until 8am usually. I haven't quite figured out how we're going to change your schedule once school starts back up, but I'm sure we will manage. You still take several naps a day and follow the "wake, eat, play" cycle. You're nursing like a champ still, which I am so thankful for. That is one thing I regretted for Brady that he didn't nurse for very long. I love that time we spend together. You usually nurse for 30-45 minutes every 3 hours, sometimes you'll go to 4 hours, but I don't like to do that too often. Your hand coordination is really starting to develop. And you are enjoying tummy time so much more these days. You are really trying to figure out how to move that little body of your to where you want to go. It won't be long before you are rolling and scooting all over the place. You had your first babysitter on Tuesday night. And of course Mimmy took excellent care of you while Momma and Daddy went out on a date. Even tho you are the third child, Momma still had a hard time leaving you. We left you crying with Mimmy and Momma was having second thoughts about leaving you. But Mimmy helped you get your air bubble out of your tummy and the rest of the evening was smooth sailing. All the kudos to your Mimmy since she is in the process of potty training Li-Li-Lou-Lou! I do owe her BIG time! Abbey and Brady have been at the beach this week with GiGi and Poppa and although you've been completely unfazed for the most part, you really miss not having your entertainers on car rides. This whole week that they've been gone, you have fussed in the backseat. I am truly amazed that after 3 months of you being here, the "novelty" still hasn't worn off for Abbey and Brady. They left on Saturday morning for the beach and when they got to church on Sunday after only being gone for less than 24 hours, they couldn't leave you alone for 2 seconds. Brady kept getting up to ask you "Did you miss me?" "Do you still remember your Bubba?" And each time you would flash him your biggest smile and he would just light up. You still continue to take the Zantac (acid reflux medicine) two times a day. And you will probably continue with that until about 6 months old. You won't have your next check up until September but you are currently around 9 1/2 pounds. We thank the Lord daily for giving you to us.

I love this smiley little girl so much! I think Li-Li-Lou-Lou has passed on the "Little Bit" crown to baby KaKa- you know, now that she's all grownie! (Hee Hee)

Mimmy really enjoyed being the FIRST babysitter. I really enjoyed when you started laughing when I was counting with Li-Li-Lou-Lou! You are the smiliest baby in the world! And you tell really good stories!
