you rolled over!

mommy decided to play more tummy time with you... i haven't been working your developmental skills much by carrying you around all the time, or putting you in the swing or bouncy seats! mommy put you on your tummy.. and guess what.. you rolled over! you did it a few times today... sometimes with some help... and i caught a couple on video for daddy to see when he comes home.. yay! :-)

the magic 3 month mark...

you are three months old today! so many people talk about the 3 month mark... you are smiling more.. you are starting to grab at things... you love watching tv! everyone says you are such a beautiful little baby... and so alert for 3 months. sleep is still challenging.. but you've been sick. looks like you caught a cold back to back.. and have been sniffling and sneezing for what seems like several weeks already. mommy is so sad to hear your decongested breathing... and it's not like you can blow your nose to feel better. :-( i think that's why you've been so sleepy these past couple of days.. you've been sick. you slept a lot today as well. we just bought some vaporizers that will hopefully clear your breathing at night. and mommy is hoping for a repeat of last night... let's get some long sleep stretches baby girl!

it's all about the sleep...

oh baby... you made mommy cry 2 nights ago.. you just wouldn't sleep anywhere except in mommy's arms... no crib.. no swing.. no cosleeper... not even next to mommy.. i had to be holding you... then you slept practically all the next day! and guess what... last night, you gave us the best night ever! two 4 hour stretches, and then a 2 hour stretch.. all in your crib! well actually, the first 3.5 hours was on mommy's chest... but we've never had such a great second stretch! i guess it's true... more sleep begets more sleep! or maybe, things really do change at tge 3 month mark.. you are exactly three month old today! oh.. i best knock on wood.. who knows what tonght will be like!

4.5 hours.. and a laugh!

oh baby.. you gave us 4.5 hours in the baby carrier swing that night! but then last night.. daddy wanted to put you in the crib to start... we need to get you into that nursery! alas.. in the crib... you gave us 2.5 hours... and then mommy kept you in our room and put you in the baby carrier swing.. which you did for another 2 hours... then mommy put you in the play swing... and i think you did another 2 hours.. and then mommy put you in a sleeper in bed with us.. for another hour and a half... and then the downward spiral...

on a happier note, mommy thinks she heard you laugh for the first time yesterday! you've been much more smiley.. especially in the mornings after a good sleep.

Back to Car Seat Swing

Ahh.. for the past several nights, Mommy was sleeping in the nursery while we tried Baby in the crib... but you would wake up every hour.. and stir and fuss in between so much that tonight, since Daddy was going to be home late, Mommy decided to put you in the car seat swing. You've been there a half hour so far.. so good.. we'll see how long it lasts. Mommy is hoping you'll give her a 5 hour night like you've done a few times already... but haven't recently... oh when oh when will you be able to sleep through the night in your crib...!

first time with pacifier!

you used the pacifier for the first time today! you never took it.. but today.. you were fussing.. and i tried it and voila.. you started sucking.. you loved it! you were even smiling at mommy while you were sucking.. so content! but then mommy and daddy worried that you would get too dependent on the pacy... so i don't think we're going to offer it to you again... we survived almost three months without it.. i guess we can keep toughing it out... sorry!
