3 months old

I know this is a bit late but I still wanted to post it so I have these details written down somewhere!!!
At 3 months, Helayna:
•weighs 13 lbs.
•loves to stare at pictures, mirrors, her floor gym and bug, and faces (especially mommy's).
•is smiling like crazy (and starting to get a little bit of a giggle)!!!!! •loves to talk (it is my favorite sound in the whole world - and I realize that may change when she learns the word 'no').
•gets red eyebrows and rubs her eyes when she's tired.
•is the spit-up queen (I give up on wearing nice clothes - I smell like puke all the time).
•hates her car seat (and will scream from the minute you put her in it until you take her out = so not fun for mommy).
•sucks on her hands a lot (and anything else that she can get close to her mouth - our fingers, shirts, toys, etc.).
•has a different hair-do every day (and is turning blonde).
•still has blue eyes (we'll see if they stay).
•loves spending time with her grandparents.
•still cries/screams a lot (when will that newborn cry go away?).
•loves kisses (and gets plenty of them).
•has completely thrown any sort of routine out the window (although I'm desperately trying to get her back into one for my own sanity).
•sometimes sleeps through the night (although lately those nights are few and far between).
•still hates taking her vitamin D (but loves Tylenol).
•takes forever to fall asleep (we're talking 45 minutes minimum here).
•loves bath time (and splashes up a storm in the tub).
•is finally going in her Baby Bjorn (but only if she can face out).
•still sleeps swaddled at night.
•will sit in the swing for a little while (as long as the music is playing).
•loves tummy time.
•can roll from her tummy to her back.
•is holding her head up on her own.
•is starting to grab at things.
•has a very strong neck.
•loves to lay and kick up a storm.
•can pull a handful of mommy's hair out in a quick second.
•still isn't very interested in standing on those legs of hers.
•hates getting dressed (and screams her head off every time she has to).
•loves to be naked (if she's warm).
•is completely and totally loved by her parents.

Oh what a sweetheart... Glad you captured all of those things, we tend to forget them when we get older.

I have one suggestion regarding the car seat. I don't know if you have one or not, but they make these car seat toys that hang on to the handle my girls loved them. If you don't have one it might help, and if she likes mirrors, get one for the car, so she can see herself while you are driving, another wonderful thing. Of course they had the little chew toys and stuff too attached to the handle or the side of the car set.

What a great list, Heather! The newborn cry gets replaced by one "not-so-sweet" so I wouldn't be in a huge hurry for it. My kids prefered to face out in their trekker, too. Man, your list totally got me reminiscing...

Her smile is so great. We love the pictures of her, as we see her personality develop. Look at all those changes she's going through. Sorry about the lack of routine and sleep. :( Wish we were there to help. We keep on praying for you, all three of you. Hugs.
