Liz' Life: 3 Months

 Three Months

Elizabeth,
I can't believe you are already three months! You are growing like a weed girl! You have really started talking and smiling more this month and your smile just melts my heart. It makes all that crying you do worth it! This month you started watching cartoons and you really enjoy them. You started grabbing on to your toys on your activity mat and you sat in your high chair for the first time. Dr. Goldberg put you on Soy this month but truthfully momma doesn't see much difference in your reflux. He also started you on solids for breakfast. Momma tries every morning to feed you rice cereal and sometimes with bananas with a spoon but you really don't like it. You would rather have your bottle. And it is the messiest thing! This month you also met your Great Grandpa Lopez who's in a nursing home for the first time. You wear some three month and some six month clothes. You are kind of in between right now. Just yesterday on your three month birthday we put you in a size 3 diaper because the size 2's were getting too small. When we weighed you yesterday at home it said you weighed 16lbs. I'm not sure how accurate that is since at your ped appointment on August 6 you weighed 14.2 lbs. You are a lot more awake during the day now and you rarely want to take a nap which gets a little annoying when momma has stuff to do. You really love your Uncle Ken and I think yall are going to have a special relationship like my papa and I did. You have become really needy or spoiled and don't want to be put down. The only time your not crying is when your held but momma can't hold you 24/7 woman! I can't wait to see what the next month brings.

Love mommy & daddy


13 Week Stats:


Sleeping: You are still going down for the night between 8-9 p.m. and usually sleep between 5-6 hours then wake up to eat and sleep for another 3 hours or so. Last night though you slept for a whole 8 hours then ate and slept for another 2 1/2. Momma's praying you have more nights like that! Recently during the day you aren't wanting to take your naps. You used to sleep for three hours in the morning after your first meal and now you wake up every hour. Not sure what that's about.

Eating: You've been eating between 4-6 oz at every feeding. You are now on Similac Soy with 3 tsp of rice cereal at each feeding and 6 tsp at your night feeding. You are not really fussy during feedings any more but you hate to be stopped to be burped. You get fussy about an hour after feedings and you get really bad hiccups afterwards.

Activity: You prefer your activity mat to anything else besides being held. You are up most of the day now so it's getting harder for momma to entertain you. All of a sudden you started not liking your swing. Not sure what that's about besides you wanting to be held all the time.

Likes:  Being held is your favorite, then playing on your activity mat and watching cartoons.


Dislikes: You hate being put down more than anything. Not liking your swing right now and you despise tummy time which makes it hard for me to get that in during the day. You prefer to be sitting up and surprisingly your head is very strong without having tummy time.

  1. What a cutie! My sister's twins don't like being put down either- probably because their auntie holds them 24/7 :)
    Love the ruffles and bows!

  2. Happy 3 months! S is starting to fight her naps too! We eventually get her down but it's hard. Is the soy for reflux? Anything else you have done worked for her reflux? S has that same teal and green (ruffle butt) outfit:-) Lis is so cute!
