Little Lu turned 3 months old this week!
I can't believe 3 months have already gone by!
I don't have a newborn anymore.
To me, 3 months is always the mark where newborns become babies.
Lucy has become so much more awake, alert and active the past month. She loves to sit up and look around. She is not happy with tummy time or if I lay her down with nothing to look at. She is my first baby to absolutely love looking at a mobile or baby toy that has lights and sounds. She can be crying and crying and we get out her special car seat toy that plays music and she will calm down and smile and talk to the toy!
Lucy is still a tiny little thing. According to my totally accurate super duper scale at home, I think she is around 11 pounds. Yeah, about the weight Wade was when he was BORN. She is growing though, her clothes are getting a little snug in the tummy and we love the tiny little chub rolls she's got on her legs.
She's becoming a great sleeper! This past week I've got her to go to sleep around the same time as the other kids, around 8. She usually then sleeps until 4am! She is sleeping in the crib in our room. She is the only baby who has slept in our bedroom this long, I usually kick them out by now. I have usually started putting them down at our normal little kid bedtime (7) by now too. We're making progress. Our master bedroom is pretty big so we're making it work. We do actually have an extra room in this house, so I could move her if I really wanted...but we use it as a toy room, and I don't want to sacrifice the toy room just yet.
Lucy is pretty serious. She doesn't laugh or smile too much, but she does surprise us occasionally. She is getting less fussy at night.
She seems to make up for any thing with her crazy hair.
It's always the center of attention.
She's growing up too fast.
Our little Lucy May!
