3 Months

My baby is 3 months old! Where in the world did the time go?! I don't feel like she's old enough to be this old! 

Miss Charlotte, it has been 3 months since we were blessed with your arrival, and we've loved every minute so far. Don't get me wrong, sometimes we aren't thrilled with your attitude or mood, but your just so stinking cute we can't help but laugh at you when you make a stink face.

You now weigh 12.6 pounds. My chunk! Your 24 inches long. Your still in size 1 diapers, but your well on your way to outgrowing them soon. Your still wearing most of your newborn jammies and onsies, but the cutesy outfits are toast. All your 0-3 month things fit, and girl you are stylin :)

You have recently developed a hatred for your carseat. I don't know what happened! You used to love riding in the car, but now I can't even make it out of the house before your screaming your head off. We're gonna have to figure something out before we have to drive back to NC for Easter. 

You are "playing" now. You have a butterfly and ladybug toy that hang from your carseat, and a few weeks ago you finally noticed them. You are way suspicious of that ladybug, it gets the stink eye more often than not, but boy you love that butterfly. You swat it back and forth and laugh when it bumps you in the face. You crinkle the wings, and always look at it quizzically. You also play with the hippo that hangs from your Johnny Jump Up. You also kick the ground so you can swing yourself back and forth.
Your still sleeping through the night with 1 to 2 wake ups for a snack. You never eat more than 15 minutes before you pass out again. Your a pro at "dream eating". Moma doesn't even need to pick you up anymore. You just eat right there in the bed, and when your done we go right back to sleep. Your also a pro at eating in public now. You don't fight me near as much as you used to, and we can gracefully get you going without it being a big production.
You've rolled over! Like, a bunch! And not on the bed with the help of the mattress. You've been on your belly and then out of nowhere "Flip!" right onto your back. Ah I love it! I'm trying to get it on video, but you freeze up when I pull out the camera. We're working on it.
Tummy Time is hit or miss. It usually depends on if it's close to eating time for you. We think you might crawl early though. You'll get yourself propped up and then push with your legs. You'll do this a few times until your tired or you've reached the section of blanket you were trying to get to.

You LOVE sports. Basketball right now. It's currently March Madness, and your glued to the TV with Daddy whenever a game is on. If you can't see it, you freak out. I know your technically not supposed to watch TV, but I don't think live sports are so bad. 
You also went swimming for the first time. You love the water. It exhausts you, but you love it. And you look super cute in your swimsuit so there's that. 
You talk all the time! You talk to Keech, the Boppy, the dining room chandelier, the TV, your paci, to Daddy, to me, to everything. You crack yourself up. You'll be talking to something, and you'll start giggling and laughing like a silly girl. I'll have know idea what gets you so tickled, but I can't help but laugh with you.

You are so stubborn and strong willed! I know that's sometimes used to describe a brat, but you are far from that. You know what you like, and you make it known when your expectations aren't being met. It's pretty cute, but not in a way that's obnoxious.

You love getting dressed, and crack up during the entire process. Something about putting your arms through the sleeves just pushes you over the edge. I can't help but laugh hysterically at you the entire time. You still think getting your diaper changed is funny. I'm sure part of it has to do with the fact that I talk to you like a nut.

Your growing up so fast! Take a break. We want you to be teeny tiny for a bit longer. We love you Chickapea! 
Moma & Daddy
