3 Month Juney Bean Sprout

-You don’t have an appt. for another month, but based on our home scale, you weigh over 13 pounds! You’re a little sprout and seem to get taller everyday.

-Your eyes changed all the time during the first 10 weeks or so, but now seem to be settling more at a dark brown/gray color. We bet they will continue to get darker and you’ll have the Marr-side dark chocolate eyes.

-You’ve had some independent playtime for a while now, although we are always nearby just in case. Your favorite place is your playmat, batting away at the toys above and checking yourself out in the mirror. You love your bouncy chair, too.

-You have great head control so we put you in the Bumbo for the first time recently and you love it! You are also newly interested in Linus and track him around the room.

-Some of your favorite things: being held to see the world, looking out the window, singing songs, reading books, getting kisses, “This little piggy,” blowing raspberries on your belly, bouncing on Daddy’s knee, swinging and imitating our facial expressions. You go back and forth about hanging out in carriers and walks in your stroller. Tummy time is still your least favorite.

-You smile all the time! You love to giggle and make sweet little noises. You prefer mornings and being out around others. You do really well in public with new people, noises, things to look at, etc.

-You do not like bedtime and tend to struggle between 6-10pm often with long bouts of crying. We’ve found there is a short window of time to get you to bed; otherwise, we are in for a lot of crying.

-People most often comment that you are so alert, you’re such a pretty baby, you have amazing hair and you have beautiful skin tone. People said the same things the day you were born.

-You are an opinionated eater. This isn’t new. You like the flow of milk to be the perfect amount and force, even from the bottle.

-You love getting your diaper changed. It’s the feeling of freedom, we suppose. You now look right over at your stuffed Sophie the Giraffe sitting on the changing pad and smile at her every time.

-When you were 11 weeks, we had to take you to the Dr. and the hospital for a fever that wouldn’t go away. After all of the tests, poking, prodding and 2 rounds of antibiotics, it eventually went away without explanation. Other than that time, you are a healthy little baby. You continue to struggle with reflux, but it seems my dairy consumption doesn’t make a difference for you.
