Three Months Old!

Ellie is three months old today! Every month older she turns is credulous to me. We are enjoying her so much I have to ask, "Why does this have to go so fast?"  I am happy to report we STILL have quite the good baby on our hands.  It's as if she knows she is supposed to be easy-going so as to complement her crazy siblings.

At three months Ellie:
  • weighs 13.5 lbs and is 23 1/4 inches long. (I thought she was going through a growth spurt!)
  • continues to eat roughly every 3 hours during the day and once in the middle of the night.  Reflux and congestion still plague us though she is so good-tempered, it doesn't seem to bother her much.
  • smiles ALL THE TIME!  It is so easy to make her smile, and Cooper and Penny love to try and extract one.  A lot of the time she accompanies her smiles with a gurgly cooing sound that seems like a laugh to me. 
  • knows her name!  The surest way to get her smiling is to say, "Ellie!"
  • has added the "ga," "ha," and "ya" sounds to her repertoire of sounds she can make.
  • enjoyed a visit from Becky, Ryan and Grayson Egger
This play mat is exhausting!
Smiling big for Mom!
