Happy 3 Month, Jillian!

Jillian is 3 months old! It's hard to believe how quickly these months have gone by since she was born!We had a Christmas themed cake this month! I thought it turned out super cute, and it's very girly with the pink icing.
I loved the details on the tree!

Our sweet girl is getting so big! I can really tell in her face that she is changing and looking a lot more like a baby and not a newborn anymore. Her precious, little feet! She has the tiniest feet. She can't keep any shoes on and can hardly keep socks on her feet. She is such a happy girl! Her brother loves her so much! I cannot wait to see them in the next few months as they are able to interact and play together. She got her toe caught in the cake. :) I know it will not be too much longer before she is reaching for her cake each month! And here is a side-by-side of Brody at 3 months and Jillian at 3 months! They look a lot alike to me, but Jillian is just bigger than Brody was at this age. Here is what Jillian has been doing this month:

-You are wearing 3 month clothing.

-You are wearing a size 1 diaper.

-I don't know exactly how much you weigh but I bet it's around 13lbs

-You are still nursing exclusively and nursing really well. You nurse every 3 hours during the day like clockwork. You usually nurse 5-6 times and day.

-You are still doing a great job taking a bottle when we give you one. You will usually take 4-5 ounces when you take a bottle.

-You have now been sleeping in your crib for 2 months at night. You are also still taking your naps in your crib during the day. As long as we swaddle you, you fall right to sleep once we lay you down.

-You have been sleeping about 10 hours each night. Usually you sleep from 8pm-6am. After I feed you between 5-6am you go back to sleep for 3 more hours. You have slept 12 hours through the night this past month. You usually wake up once during the night when your pacifier falls out of your mouth. We give it back to you and you go right back to sleep!

-You are smiling and cooing so much. I love how happy you are after you nurse. You have started to recognize us more and more this past month. You get very excited when you see your daddy, your brother or me walk into the room!

-You have started laughing some this month! We haven't gotten a big belly laugh yet, but we are started to get some cute little laughs and we LOVE them!

-You are sooo ticklish on your belly! We love to see your face when we tickle you! It's hilarious!

-You are such a good baby. You are very easy unless you really want something and then you let us know!

-You traveled for the first time this past month and did pretty well in the car. You don't sleep very well away from home, but hopefully that will get easier.

-Brody still loves you so much! You are really starting to notice him and seem to enjoy when he talks to you.

-You seem to like tummy time a little more this month but you usually always spit-up a little when you have tummy time.

-You have started rolling a lot from your belly to your back.

-Your hair still seems to be turning blond and your eyes are still very blue! We always get lots of compliments on your big, blue eyes. They make us melt!

-You are really enjoying sitting in your boppy so that you can see what is going on!

-You try to pull yourself up to a sitting position when you are propped on your boppy.

-You found your feet this month and you love to try and grab them.

-The only time you really cry in the car is when you ride in the car at night and it's dark. I don't think you really like the dark too much!

-We celebrated your first Thanksgiving this past month and we also had your Baby Dedication. Both were really special days for our family.

-We love you more and more with each passing day, if that is even possible!!!! You are such a beautiful and sweet baby girl! We are so thankful for you.

She just keeps getting cuter and cuter, if that's even possible. Loved reading about what she's up to these days!
