Rachel @ 3 months

When Rachel was 10 weeks just after Thanksgiving and we were in Buffalo, she slept a couple seven-hour stretches two nights in a row. (And when I say seven hours, I mean 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. or 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.!) Then it continued at home! For about a week. And this weary mom rejoiced.

And then it stopped.

Now, I'm waiting for that sleeping habit to return. Admittedly, she eats and then goes right back down, but, still ... I prefer sleeping through the night!

Even so, she smiles often and people are always commenting on what a happy baby she is. And it's true! She loves when people talk to her and reacts like she had something to say in return. Of course, we have a fifth extrovert in our family.

Speaking of family, we're obviously thrilled her adoption was finalized this past month too.

In other three-month notes, Rachel ...

  • Eats 4-7 ounces every 3-4 hours.
  • Spits up regularly, but doesn't seem to care and she's clearly growing.
  • Wears mostly 0-3 month clothes still, but that's not going to last much longer.
  • Moved up to size 2 diapers.
  • Is teething. For real. All the drool.
  • Sucks on her fingers, sometimes as a sleep aid and sometimes to address the aforementioned teething.
  • Loves her play mat and Fisher-Price seat.

Honestly, it's hard to believe a quarter of her first year is in the books and just how quickly these three months have gone. I realize that's cliche, but it's true.

Keep up with Rachel and her growth :: One month. Two months
