This past week my sweet little Katie celebrated 3 months! I can't believe how fast it seems to be going by. I think this month I mourned it a bit more because she's no longer considered a newborn. And she totally doesn't act like it either.
She hit three months and started sleeping through the night. All the way. I put her to bed around 8 and then between 10 and 10:30 I'll wake her (barely) enough to eat and put her back to bed and she'll sleep until morning. It's glorious. I'm getting sleep for once! Well, sort of. I'm potty training the older one, so sometimes I'm up in the night regardless. Hopefully that will end soon. Kaitlyn has the cutest baby stretch that she does when I pick her up for her night feed. She'll make fists with her crossed arms, arch her back and turn her head to the side with this cute little grimace. It makes me smile every time.
Kate is starting to become more fun. She's starting to smile back at us and every night just before bed she starts to “talk” to me. She'll babble for a good 10-20 minutes. I feel like she's telling me all about her day. She's pretty quiet when things are going on around her. She's content to just sit and watch. I have to admit, after having Mady be so loud from day one, I sometimes forget about Kate. I'll walk into the living room where she's been laying to find her just staring at one of her toys or something and realize she's been there for 20 minutes and I totally forgot. She can't feel too neglected though because her favourite place is still in Mommy's arms. I'm trying to encourage that out of her, or at least the sheer volume! But I do love me some baby cuddles.
She has herself on a pretty good schedule. There is nothing about it I hate, so I hope she sticks with it for a while. It's working well for my life!
I'm so blessed to have this sweet girl in my life. Each day I fall more in love with her. How can a person not? Look at those cheeks. And that crazy double chin!
