{Month 3}

 3 months! I think every month I will probably wonder where the time is going. The months are just flying by and as much I love all the new stages with her and everything she is doing that is "new" I kinda want time to slow down!!
{I realize all these photos are very similar but I just think she is too cute and can't choose between them. I have a problem. ;)}

9lbs 13oz (this was back on the 9th of December)
Then 10lbs 3oz at her 2 month shots on the 20th!
We just love her new chubby cheeks and chunky thighs!

22 inches (on the 9th)
23 inches on the 20th

She is a professional cat napper. She takes very short naps about 3 times a day. She is still pretty much doing eat, play, sleep with much more awake times and likes to play, read books & sing more and more.
She has still been sleeping really well. She will go to bed when we do and sleep until between 5-7am. Sometimes she will wake once in the night to be changed and eat but then goes right back to bed. We are feeling very lucky.
She did have a couple rough nights after our car rides to and from the lake but we are sure that is due to the fact that she sleeps the whole car ride (3 hours there, 4+ home due to bad roads) and she next to never sleeps more than an hour.
She slept in her crib for the first time [at night] last night and did GREAT. {Mom also survived too!} She woke once to eat and be changed at 4 and then was up around 6 but we were happy with that.

{daily routine}
She is still pretty easy going and just goes along with what we are doing. Especially right now when we are doing lots of visiting and Justin is home we aren't in much of a routine.

She is still a great eater and a much quicker eater these days too. She is still exclusively getting breast milk and takes a bottle really well too which we do when we go out somewhere so I only have to nurse her once while at a gathering or something.

{diaper size}
Finally moved up to size 1 but they are pretty huge on her!

She wears some 0-3 stuff but is mainly in 3 months or 3-6 months. She is so long that a lot of sleepers are too short and way too wide on her and with pants they fit in the length but they are way too big in the waist. She fits well into Carter's & Old Navy jammies.

{hair color}
Medium blond

{eye color}
Very blue

Slept through the night for the 1st time on the 13th.
Rolls from her back both ways all the time. It's her getaway from tummy time!
She is starting to like baths and will put up with tummy time for longer periods of time now.
She has found her toes and likes to play with her hands (and eat them)!

Bouncy chair
Looking at herself in the mirror
Her play mat
Sleeping on someone
Sticking out her tongue
Watching the TV

Having a wet or dirty diaper
Having her diaper changed {sometimes}
Being tired

{mommy & daddy}
We are great! We have loved having Daddy home over the holidays and will be very sad when he has to go back to work on Monday.

Big sister is awesome. She is very sweet with Miss D - gives her lots of kisses (which Delainey doesn't seem to mind at all) and likes to just hangout near her.

{nick names}
Daddy calls her Delainey Lainey or Lainey B
Miss D
Love or Lovie

{moments to remember}
Our first Christmas with her! She won't remember a thing but it was a special one just having her with us.
Met Great Grampa and Gramma Chris for the first time.
2nd trip to the lake.

Month 1. Month 2. Month 3.
We love you Delainey. More than we ever thought possible. Thank you for making 2013 so incredibly special. Last Christmas you were our Christmas wish and we are still in awe that you are here and you are ours.

She is so cute! I think it's a little funny that Crew weighed that much at his 2 week appointment! Glad she is sleeping so good for you! What a relief!

Happy 3 months D! She really grew the past month! Clothes fit A so weird, some 0-3m stuff is almost too short for her but still so wide, she is 22" and 8lbs11oz so I think she got too long the past month and did fill out, hoping this month she gains more.
Love that D is sleeping so good for you guys! A good nights sleep does wonders .And she did so well in the crib, yay! I need to get A to nap more in her crib, I am bad for letting her nap anywhere but ;)

She is just so cute! I wouldn't have been able to pick which pictures to include either. I am so glad your Christmas wish was granted in 2013. What a blessing she is! She is such a peanut - I was 9'15oz when I was born (my poor mom, she didn't even have an epidural!). But it's cool to see how much she is growing month by month!

She is such a doll baby Alison!! I can't believe how much she is grown (but is still so tiny too!) in the last 3 months! Cognrats on the milestone of her sleeping in her own crib. I love the pic of her lying next to Cruz!! Precious!!
