I realized a while ago that 12 weeks isn’t the same as 3 months, so I decided after the “Happy 2 Month Birthday Grace!” post that I would switch to the correct timing and wait till October 3rd to wish her a happy 3 month birthday. So here I am on October 5th! Better late than never I guess…
A few fun facts about Grace:
She still snorts like a pig, but no longer chirps like a bird!
She LOVES to look at herself in the mirror. I stand her up in front of the mirror on the buffet in our living room and she practically jumps with excitement at the sight of her face! She flashes huge smiles and makes adorable cooing sounds.
She is very aware of her hands. She likes to munch on them, watch them move and even reach them out to bump them into things. She’s not really grabbing stuff intentionally yet, but she’s getting close!
The hair at the back of her head still sticks straight up! It draws comments from everyone that she comes into contact with because it’s just so stinkin’ hilarious!
She likes playing peek-a-boo with me, although I think it scares her a little too. I’ll throw her blanket over her face and pull it back really fast and she looks sort of startled and sort of thrilled :)
She is the queen of toe fuzz. She gets fuzz between her toes from her various socks and sleepers and she keeps her toes so tightly clenched that you really can’t get the fuzz out! It eventually comes out though…in the tub…and floats all around her. LOL
At her last Dr. appointment she was in the 25-50th percentile for weight, 25th percentile for head size and 75th percentile for length.
She’s still exclusively breastfed, although she is really interested in watching us eat, so I know she’ll be very excited to start solids in the next few months.
She doesn’t roll over yet, but she can make her way around her crib in no time flat! We’ll lay her down in one position and she’ll wake up rotated 180 degrees.
We don’t let her sleep with her pacifier anymore, so she quickly found her hands. We now hear vigorous sucking sounds coming from the nursery when she’s falling asleep and waking up.
Here are a few new pix:
October 3rd was also Andy’s 32nd Birthday. Happy Birthday Andy! I love you!
