Amelia at 3 Months

Three months (almost 4 now!) with Amelia have been a dream! At 3 months she weighed about 11.5 pounds and was 23 inches long. 

Baby Mia is the happiest little thing, if you give her a smile she'll smile right back. She loves everyone and everything and it's the cutest. She contracts with excitement when we make eye contact, and I can't even stand how cute it is. She loves babbling, and will talk your ear off if you let her. She's started getting distracted while nursing. If there is anything going on, she'd rather be looking at it than eating. Especially if she could be making eye contact with me. Then she just wants to smile and babble. I feel bad but I pretty much have to ignore her when she's eating just so she'll get fed haha.

She is totally content to be set down wherever, which is a new thing for me considering Nathan refused to be set down for longer than 2 minutes. It's a huge blessing considering Nathan still requires that kind of attention ;). 

On Super Bowl Sunday Mia rolled over three times from her tummy to her back! She did it so gracefully, with complete head control. It was very impressive because it was probably the third time I had ever given her official "tummy time". She hasn't done it since, so we are confused, but it was pretty cool when it happened! The problem now is that I know she can do it, so I can't just set her on the couch and walk away for a quick minute. Now I have to strap her into stuff because you never know when she will do it again! She's very strong and determined. Since then, whenever we do tummy time she tries so so hard to roll over, and she never complains even when she gets really tired! I have to roll her over because I can tell she's exhausted but she isn't asking for help. She has almost rolled all the way from her back to her tummy this past week, and that's really fun to watch! 

She has the clearest most beautiful skin, and everyone comments on how pretty her eyes are. I'm inclined to agree :). She is absolutely perfect and we are so happy she is ours! Nathan has even started interacting with her more, and he seems to like her pretty well haha. He has accepted that she isn't leaving ;). 

Both babies have woken up for the day now (9:30am) so it's breakfast time! That's a quick update on baby Mia. I'm hoping to get back to being more consistent with blogging, but I'm pretty far behind so it's a little overwhelming haha....
