3 months and 1 week old
Evangeline has become a very bright eyed, chatty and happy baby. Full of smiles and laughs but 90% are reserved just for me, the current center of her universe..hey I make milk :)!
-She has learned grab things and pull them to her mouth…everything goes directly in the mouth, however, bottle nipples and binky’s at this stage seem to be only for chewing on and licking, not sucking.
-She amazed me yesterday by rubbing her eye when there was a lint in it, hello co-ordination.
-She rolls herself to her side and back, but has yet to fully roll over.
-She tries to pull herself up into a sitting position when I prop her up against a pillow, but can’t balance the weight of her head yet, so tips off to the side.
-She loves assisted standing, it makes her smile alot, and bounce.
-She talks to me alot and has lots to say, guess she’s a talker like her mama.
-She loves the outside, when in a tantrum, I just step outside and she stops and stares. She seems amazed by the sensation of rain and wind on her face.
-Temper, temper-today she headbutted me hard during a tantrum, her forehead, my eye, ow! She was mad cause I changed her and she didn’t want to be changed at that moment.
Also, she has napped successfully 2x in her bassinet in the past two days, I just nurse into a deepish sleep and transfer her. This means I can get more done while she naps or just have free arms for a little while each day. Perfect.
