3 Months Old

Mia is 3 months old today!  And she is so happy that today is an icy snowy day and her daddy got to stay home with her.  A couple of things to remember on her 3-month birthday:

    Snow day with Daddy!
  • We had a dr. appointment yesterday where Mia weighed in at 9 lbs 5 oz...that is only a 6 oz gain from last month's appointment, and it puts her at only the 3rd percentile.  So we are instructed to work towards fattening her up!  That means replacing 2 of her feedings with formula bottles every day...that way she's still getting the benefits of nursing but with some guaranteed calories throughout her day. 

Happy baby!!

  • So a couple of weeks ago, Mia found her hands.  Since then she has been putting them in her mouth every chance she gets.  Well, now she has discovered that she can hold onto things and put those magical things into her mouth as well!  She has this cute little stuffed crab that is her new favorite chew toy.

    Crab claws are delicious!
  • This past weekend my parents - Nana & Papa - came in to visit and they babysat while Brock and I went out with our friends Sean & Christina.  While we were dressed up, we decided to take a family picture.  I don't know what it is about him, but Papa has a way of making her smile some of the biggest smiles she'll give!

  • Also while they were in, we had a little picnic in the backyard on Saturday...only in Texas can it be 80 degrees on Saturday and 20 on Tuesday.  So with the absolutely gorgeous day, Mia got to wear her sun hat and her silly looking sun glasses that Nana insists she loves...but why does she always cry when she has them on??  Fancy loves them so much more!

    "These sunglasses make me look ridiculous...I'm giving them to Fancy"
    "I'm so Fancy!"
  • Even though she is small, Mia loves her jumperoo.  We have to put something under her feet - a kitchen pot, some magazines, the box for the scattergories game...it's really cute to see her when she gets going...we've got an active one on our hands!

Look at me...I can stand!
