Elizabeth turned 3 months old on September 15th, 2012. Those 3 months have just flown by. She has changed and grown a lot. She is coming up quickly on 17 lbs. I am sure she will double her birth weight without an issue by 6 months.
Elizabeth loves to smile and to be entertained. Jared says her temperament is very different from Benjamin's. Elizabeth wants your attention and for you to entertain her. Which does make working from home a little harder sometimes. Thankfully she is better in the mornings than the evenings!
The "banshee" cry is no longer happening like it used to. I've been starting to have some wheat and dairy and she seems to just spit up now instead of screaming bloody murder. I am going to try to stay off of it some still...but it's hard!
Elizabeth is wearing 3-6 month clothes now. She loves to pull her dresses up to her face or blankets. She is starting to get too big for her swing even though it's a great friend! She tries to play with the bear on her swing which is so cute to watch! She can handle the exersaucer now which is great and she spins herself around.
She can move herself up onto a side which means she will be rolling over before too long. Jared's prediction is that she will be more mobile in 6 weeks. Specifically rolling over and scooting herself around.
There's a tiny bump where her canine tooth would be. So she might be getting a tooth coming in before too long already (for my sake I hope not).
After nursing Elizabeth loves to stretch out on my lap and she rolls her head off my leg and it feels like she is trying to do a back flip almost.
Elizabeth sleeps great at night! She will go down typically around 8:30-9:30 and wake up around 2 or 3 and then sleep for another 2-3 hours and wake up again and repeat. I really appreciate that she sleeps so good. She will fight going to sleep though during the day sometimes which can be annoying. But other times in the mornings she will just lay there and fall asleep without an issue. She actually put herself to sleep a few nights ago. I laid her on the ottoman and went off to do some work and came back and she was out for the night.
She loves to listen to me play the piano and can sleep through it thankfully at church! She smiles when she gets in the car and sees her monkey mirror. Elizabeth does not like to go below 35 miles per hour.
Elizabeth loves to watch her crazy older brother. And she loves to smile for her daddy! We are so grateful to have Elizabeth in our family! She is such a sweet girl that we adore!
