Happy Three Months Ella!!

October 23rd

Sweet Ella you are already THREE months old. 

Aunt Sis and I were just talking about how we feel like you were born three DAYS ago!  Time is going so fast and I am cherishing every moment with you sweet girl. Our poor family isn't getting to spend as much time with you as they did with Hadley because I just can't give you up!!! I know how fast time goes and I don't want to miss one second of it. 

You are still sleeping in our bedroom (because once again I just can't part ways with you!!) in your rock and play. You are starting to look a little cramped so we are going to move you to your room as soon as we get a monitor. 

You are waking up just once around 2 at night to nurse. Then I put you back in the RNP and you wake up again when your sister does around 7:30. I nurse you again and put you back to sleep until around 8:30 when I have to wake you up to take Hadley to school. This happens on MOnday Wednesday and Friday. On the rest of the days you get to sleep as long as you want! I hate waking you up

You are in size 2 diapers and size 0-3 and 3-6 month clothes. 

You are still nursing about every three hours and it's going great! It ranges anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes which can be a little hard to plan around sometimes but it has been working out ok so far. 

This month you picked up a pretty bad cold from your sister. It was so pitiful to hear you cough. Daddy and I took you to the dr because I was worried that your cough lasted for too long. They said you just had a little cold. We did get to see that you were gaining weight really well. I can't quite remember the number but it was over 12 pounds. 

You are still sleeping very often during the day but I see signs of a schedule forming. 

Our goals for this month us to get you on a schedule and move you to your room. I have so enjoyed this precious newborn time. You sleeping right next to me is the sweetest gift and I love to look over and see you in the middle of the night.

One major milestone you reached this month is rolling from your tummy to your back! We can't even put you on your tummy anymore without you immediately rolling to your back!! 

I love you sweet baby girl. You have truly brought so much joy to our lives and know you gave been such a blessing to others. I hope you remember that even when you were teeny tiny and not able to speak yet, that your smile and your presence truly blessed people. You already have such a gentle and loving heart. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you. I am so happy that I get to spend everyday right beside you teaching you about this crazy life. Your daddy and I love you more than you will ever know!
