Adelaide Jane: 3 Months

Dearest Adelaide,

The months seem to be flying by especially this past one. I think that pesky hurricane had something to do with it as well as hosting our first Thanksgiving. When other people are around, the days just seem to whip by. 

You have really grown in the past 4 weeks and your personality is flourishing. You are eating 6 ounces of formula 5 to 6 times a day. You are still a pleasant sleeper and are getting better at day time naps. You weigh over 12 pounds and are 23.5 inches long. You have gained 4 pounds & have grown 3 inches since birth. You received your 2 2 1/2 month shots which you took like a champ. To reward you, we had a mommy & daughter girly day involving getting your ears pierced :) You picked out the peridot earrings to match me!

The first holidays are being rapidly fired at you as well as the accompanying outfits and pjs. You had quite a few outfit changes for Thanksgiving, and you hammed it up with your cousins for the Macy's Day Parade. We put up your first Christmas tree and hung our stockings this week. You are in seventh heaven with all those lights. You even have a special pink & purple tree in your nursery.

Baptized on Sunday November 25th, you were a chatter box and very observant. The priests simply adored you and everyone complimented us on how beautiful you are. We know :)

We took an impromptu trip with daddy to Chicago where you got to meet one of my bffs, Lindsay Marquette. It was your first flight being toted facing out in the baby bjorn. You loved it. Just moving your head from side to side taking in all of the people and sights. 

Many nights I read stories to you. You will no doubt be a little bookworm like your mother. Some of your faves include The Little Spider, My ABC Bible, Goodnight I Love You, & The First Thanksgiving.

I love you munchkin. You have brought so much light & love to my heart. Something about your smile and giggle melts my heart every time.

Mommy (& Daddy)

PS~ You were a little tyrant today. Apparently you thought it would be funny to play a cruel trick on mommy by refusing to stop crying if you were in your car seat while we were grocery shopping. As soon as I picked you up, you started smiling & joke. So we spent 2 1/2 hrs in the grocery while I held you in one arm & pushed the cart with the other. I, of course, did not find it to be all that amusing as you might imagine. Lesson learned, get you a cake for every milestone even if it is a 3 month birthday!

  1. Witty Witt,

    Was searching for my GF's blog and came across yours. Started reading and came to your post and pics about having your dd's ears pierced. This was a perfect age to pierce her ears! I believe it is always best done early when she wouldn't remember and have mommy care for them during the healing phase. When she is older, she will think they are a part of her and won't bother them.

    Promise she will look precious in her upcoming holiday pictures with them. I had our dd's ears pierced at about the same age.

    You were a smart mommy for doing it. Babies and little girls with little pierced ears celebrates their femininity and femaleness.

    Our ped encouraged me doing it when mommy could care for them. Also, she gave me some tips for moms helping them to find the right person, place and type of earrings to use for infants having their ears pierced. Would be happy to share by e-mail with any moms wanting more info.
