Weeeee!! Month three!!

Dearest Brynn,

You are three months old now!  Growing big and tall, changing daily before my eyes.  Getting more beautiful each and everyday.  Everyday I am finding myself more and more in love with you.  I think I tell you in every letter, but you are perfect.  You fit perfectly in our family :)

This month you have blossomed this little personality that just lights up my life.  You are so full of smiles.  I think its your favorite thing to do. Smile.  I can be having a bad day, a stressful day, tired beyond belief and then you flash me that sweet funny smile and I just melt.  You make such eye contact when you smile and you can just see the joy you have inside you. It brings tears to my eyes everytime.

I made a big decision this month to quit my job and be a stay at home mommy with you.  It was always, always my biggest desire.  Before you were even born, I dreamed of going to mommy & me classes, playing, having lunch picnics in the backyard, drawing with sidewalk chalk in the driveway...you get the idea.  When I thought I would have to go back to work I was so upset.  I cried countless countless tears.   Fortunately...& thankfully the Lord provided and blessed daddy with a new job working from home & provided for us to make this happen.

I look forward to spending every day watching you grow, learn and discover new things.  I am so grateful that I am here with you day in and day out to teach you, guide you, lead you in right direction.  I am excited for our fun days and mother-daughter bond that will continue to grow stronger day by day.

Love you peanut!  To the moon&back!!!
Mommy




Lets talk about these Baby Stats for month three!!


Sleep: You changed it up on us this month.  With all your tummy troubles you started waking up once in the middle of the night for a bottle, but then you go right back to bed.  Now I think its just a habit..one that I am going to have to crack down on and break.  Now that we are in our new house I am trying to get you on a strict schedule.  You are napping throughout the day...about one hr every two hours.  You also started sleeping in your crib in your own room last week.  Seems to have been an easy transition for you  thankfully!


Feeding:  We finally found out that you were allergic to milk protein & soy.  After trying every milk on the planet..I think we finally have it down.  It is super expensive...but having you be happy again is priceless!

Weight:
Birth: 8lbs 9oz
1 month: 9lbs 4oz (50th percentile)
2 months: 11lbs (75th percentile)
3 months: 12.15 (75th percentile)

Length:  Birth:19 inches
1 month: 21 3/4  (75th percentile)
2 months: 23 (50th percentile)
3 months: 24 inches (75th percentile)


Diaper size:  size 1 :)

Clothes size:  You are now in some 0-3 but mostly 3 months.

Hair color:  Still dark..sometimes in certain lights I think it may be getting a tad lighter.

Eye color: At birth: deep royal blue
1 month: blue-ish grey
2 months: grey/blue.  sometimes more grey...sometimes more blue
3 months: grey/blue...some flecks of green...some flecks of brown.

Firsts: night sleeping in your own crib and your own room!


Milestones:  You giggled for the first time the other day and it was so precious.  Up until now you would just open your mouth super wide and grin.  But now!  Now you open your mouth and make little giggle noises.  Love it!!!  You also learned how to grab things with your hands.  We are officially playing with toys now.  I will hold them in front of you and you will reach your little hands out..grab it and pull it straight to your mouth.

Favorite toy: I had been waiting anxiously for the day I could write something here besides swing and paci!  You currently love this little frog rattle that hangs from your play mat.  We take it off and you carry it around and suck on it.  We also broke out Sophie the Giraffe the other day and you love to suck on her head :)

Happy three months Brynn Bug!
Love you to pieces!
