Ella, you are 3 months old!

You have been quite fussy yesterday and today, and are currently draped over my arm as I type. It sounds like an inconvenience, but it’s actually rather cute.

You weigh over 10 pounds now!

You have many newborn clothes that are just too tight! Yay! 0-3 months are in!

You will suck on anything you can get in your mouth. Since your grasp isn’t all that great yet this mostly means you are sucking on your fingers, fist, arm, my neck or shoulder, or whatever else you manage to get in there.

You laugh a ton. The best thing in the world is good morning smiles. I try to video tape it, but once the camera is on you become mesmerized by the red blinking light and just stare.

You are doing a super job with breastfeeding. I am so proud of you!

You are sleeping between 5-8 hours a night. I am grateful for this, but know I will miss our middle of the night time together.

You still love bath time, still hate getting out, but now also love massage time.

You think it’s funny when you toot {much to the joy of the boys we live with}.

You need to be snuggled close when you’re tired, but prefer to be facing out and checking out what’s going on when you’re awake.

You’re coming to a point where you realize you’re not too sure about the random stranger who goos at you.

You love hearing Goodnight Moon and our nightly Bible readings. You just stare and watch me read. You also stare at football with Daddy when it’s on TV. Maybe you’ll love books and Bruin football when you grow up!

You have tried your Bumbo seat, but aren’t too sure about it. Though you like sitting propped up on the couch or someone’s lap. You love watching the mobile in your swing, and being in your bouncer in the kitchen when we’re cooking. You love staring at ceiling fans and lights.

You reach for your toys.

You roll over onto one side.

You think Josiah is the funniest thing in the world.

You still use a paci to sooth you at times, which I know I should nix for breastfeeding issues. But you feel in love with it in the NICU and I haven’t had the heart to steal it away yet.

You have the ability to make every worry or annoyance or bad attitude disappear in an instant!


  1. Love reading this beautiful post! So thankful that God has turned your mourning into dancing again!

  2. If I told you miss eliana loved her dummy (a paci in oz) and breastfed till she was two woudl you feel better? If feeding is going well (and it sounds like it is!) and you are feeding on demand forget feeling guilty over that paci!
