Anyways...it is so much fun getting to know our little Ally girl. I didn't think I would be lucky enough to have 2 good babies...but I do. :) Ally is so easy-going and she loves to smile! She hardly ever cries, but she does have her moments when she is really hungry or over-tired. Most days she is so content and is starting to coo and 'talk' so much. She LOVES to hear a voice and see faces. It is so much fun to watch her light up when you talk to her. She has the most beautiful eyes and I love when we get to just watch each other as she nurses.
It is amazing how much babies grow in the beginning. I feel like she is changing almost every day. This month she officially has refused the pacifier. I tried for a while to get her to like it, but she just doesn't. Instead...she LOVES her thumb. She is definitely a thumb-sucker. It is so cute to watch. It's great also because I don't have to find her thumb for her, I know when she's ready for sleep because in goes that thumb. It's amazing how God has created us. I didn't 'teach' her how suck her thumb, it was just what she did. Here are some pictures of her putting herself to sleep. It literally takes like 2 minutes most of the time...she just finds her thumb, and moments later, she's out.
Here he is showing her a light toy that he loves.
|I told Ryan to show Ally the lights, but he put it in her mouth instead :)|
3 month stats:
weight: 14 lbs
height: 25 inches
eating: usually every 2ish hours, sometimes 2.5 or 3
sleeping: she has been taking naps about 45 mins to an hour and about 6 naps a day, and will take a long nap when during Ryan's nap when I hold her :) She wakes to eat anywhere from 1 to 3 times a night. She is now falling asleep usually by 9 and is up between 7 and 8.
She also loves to Moby wrap. I used it a lot with Ryan too...it's great for when we are out running errands...I put her in and within minutes, she falls asleep...she is my little cuddle bug!
With Ally, I love that I know what I am comfortable with and not comfortable with in regards to parenting. I also know from having one baby already that babies change so quick and just to be flexible and know that the hard times pass and to enjoy them where they are. Here is a pic to end this month's update of my little sleeping beauty.
