3 Months Old!

Ellie Grace is 3 months (13 weeks) old this week!  My 12 week maternity leave from work flew by!  I think this is true because I really enjoyed my time off.  The last 6 weeks were really great because I had fully recovered and felt physically normal again and Ellie started sleeping through the night!  Besides getting more sleep, Ellie really started to show her personality by smiling, giggling, and "talking".   I got to take her to the park in the mornings since the heat wave had finally ended and I started feeling more comfortable taking her places as well.  She is truly a happy baby and we love her more each and  every day!

Ellie did not have to see the Pediatrician this month so I don't have any updated stats.  We see him next month for her 4 month checkup.

Here are a few things Ellie has been up to this past month:

Ellie started sucking her thumb! Well she likes the back of her hand and other fingers too :)

She makes silly faces!

Look at those blue eyes and eyelashes!

Smiling while doing tummy time

At 10 weeks ( 9-23-11) she rolled over to her back

She is sleeping for at least 6 hours a night.  The longest she has slept is from 9pm-7am!  That has only happened a few random times.

Grandma came and visited her at 11 weeks old

Aunt Jessi also came and visited at 11 weeks old
