We hit another milestone today...Delaney is three months old! I can't believe it. It seems like we were just bringing that tiny little girl home from the hospital! My how she's grown and changed since then! These past three months have absolutely flown by, but boy have they been a lot of fun! We are so blessed to have such a perfect, healthy girl!
Our little bundle is getting to be such a big girl! She weighs 11lbs 6 oz today. She has officially doubled her birth weight (and then some). She is now about 22 1/2 inches long, so she's added a full 4 inches in length over the last three months. She is now firmly in Size 1 diapers, but I think we'll be in this size for a while yet as there is still room to grow! She is wearing size 0-3 month and 3 month outfits, and of course looks adorable in them all!
She just worked her way up to 4 oz every 3 hours this week. She seems to be handling the increase just fine. She's also been working her way back to sleeping through the night. We had been doing so well, but as soon as I started back to work she started walking up around 4 a.m. She did do better with that the last few days, so I think we may be turning the corner. She slept 7 1/2 hours last night, which was so nice. I hope that's a new trend!
One of her latest tricks that has really shown through this month has been her beautiful smiles! She loves to be talked to, and will usually give her audience a big gummy grin! We even got a few little giggles on May 31st. She had spit up all over me and found it very amusing! It was one of my favorite moments with her so far...the giggle part!
She has also taken more of an interest in toys this month. As you can see, she has a new friend "Ellie" that she really likes. Ellie was a gift from her Uncle Chip, so I think that makes her extra special! She also really loves her play mat that sings and has various toys to enjoy! I still think her swing is her favorite and it almost always soothes her into a nice little snooze!
She has also decided recently that she loves to be naked (or in just a diaper). I'm sure this will cause a few headaches for us later in life, but for right now it's pretty cute! She's had a lot of very fun "firsts" this month, here's a few...first baseball game, first wedding, first day at daycare, and first trip to the zoo! She's been such a busy girl!
Everyday is a new adventure with Delaney! We love waiting her grow and learn. We are so blessed to have her. She has made us into a family, which is something we dreamed about for so long! Everyday with her is a gift, and we cherish every little moment. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for this little girl!
