Happy 3 Months, Lillian!
Your third month has been a big month for you! You are still a pretty chill baby - it takes a lot to get you riled up - but when you do get fired up, beware! This month you started laughing and you have the most adorable chuckle. Evelyn seems to be the one who brings it out of you the most, but Daddy has found your tickle spot and can get it going that way, too! You learned to roll from front to back this month and usually do it pretty quickly to get out of doing tummy time. Sometimes we can keep you on your tummy long enough to get some quality exercise on those neck muscles in, but usually you want to be back on your back. You started bringing your hands together this month as well, although it's still pretty rigid. You have started grasping at a rattle and will try to shake it - at least until you smack yourself in the face with it! You are still nursing like a champ, and even though Mommy went back to work this month, you still prefer nursing over bottles. You started out ok with bottles, but have since gone on strike and will only eat from Mommy or a syringe. You are still getting up 3-4 times a night to nurse - although some nights you will stretch that out to 5-6 hours! (Mommy loves those nights!) You got your first cold this month...probably because Mommy went back to work and brought back all of her students' germs to you. Fortunately it didn't linger long with you (Mommy and Evelyn were not so fortunate!). You are such a happy baby - it take a lot to get you worked up. You love it when your sister plays with you, and you light up when you hear her (which isn't hard) and especially when you see her. I hope you two will continue to love each other so! Happy three months, sweet girl! I can't believe this much time has already passed!
