3 months!

evelyn jane,
i just realized that we've been calling you "evy" so much recently and i just love love your full name, evelyn.  nora has stopped calling you "baby evy" and just "evy" now. she is still such a good big sister and always is watching out for you.  she starts her mornings every day saying, "where's evy? she not sleeping.  i go see her." she just loves you so much and i hope you two always are that eager to see each other in the mornings :) 

well, baby girl you are 3 months old now!  we're out of the "4th trimester" and on to big things!  you don't look like a newborn anymore and are really starting to show some of your beautiful features!  a lot of people say you look like daddy, but i think you look like yourself. the one and only evelyn :) you have blue blue eyes, light brown hair (it's starting to fall out!), one sweet little dimple on the right side, long skinny legs and a long torso (that you do get from your dad!) you are almost ALWAYS smiling!!

new things this month... 
this month you started to coo and talk a LOT!  it's the sweetest sound to hear your little voice! (i once said the same thing about your sister! ha!) 
you decided that your 12-week birthday was a good day to start rolling over belly to back. i'm surprised you haven't done this sooner, as you HATE being on your belly.  tummy time=spit up time
you celebrated your first thanksgiving... 
first christmas tree cutting down extravaganza 
got to see mommy's aunts, uncles & cousins at the Smith Family Christmas 
you started sleeping longer stretches at night (9:30/10-6:30am)
and the biggest change this month brought...
your first all-nighter in your crib! i was so hesitant to do this, but i think you were ready for it... you seem to be outgrowing the rock n play and we were putting you in your crib after your last feeding of the night and bringing you into our room when we were ready for bed.  finally, last night we decided to keep you in your crib and see how it went.  so far so good!  you made it til 7am! 

speaking of sleep... you're still a bit of a cat-napper, napping anywhere between 45min-2 hours.  45 min being the typical.  you take 1-2 naps a day in your crib, the rest are usually on the go or in our arms. i know these days don't last long, so i soak up all the baby cuddles i can get! 

you are still exclusively nursing and getting 1 bottle before bed if dad is home to give it to you.  the spit up is still outta control... i hope this stops soon.  

our typical schedule...
7am- nurse and back to bed
9am- nurse & ready to play with big sis! 
10:30ish- ready for nap #1 in your crib 
12:00- nurse & play time with mommy as big sis is sleeeeeeping
1:30 nap #2 usually in your crib or snuggles with mama
3pm- nurse & ready for some adventure with nora
5:30- dinner time & fussy time
7:30 bath & ready for bed
8/8:30 bottle and out like a light! 

you're still in size 1 diapers and 0-3 month clothes.  i see you outgrowing these lengthwise sooner rather than later, but you are still so skinny!  your cheeks are getting chubbier though, too! 

we took you to the doctor for your 3 month well visit and you weigh 11.2 pounds (13th percentile) and are 23 inches long (25th percentile).  

evy girl... 
your daddy and i love you so very much.  every day i think how lucky i am to be your mama and have 2 loving little girls.  i love when you smile at me with those bright blue eyes and you just melt my heart!  i am SO sad to be going back to work after the holidays and leave you.  these past 3 months have been so special and i will always treasure our time together.  you are such a special little lady. 

mama & daddy 

cuddles with k

big smiles as always
