3 months

Our little Peanut Butter Cup is 3 months old! So hard to believe it's been 3 months. It seems like a lifetime, but such a short time all at once. She has definitely changed our lives for the better.
I am happy to report that her tummy issues have improved tremendously! She is on a very specialized formula for babies with allergies to cow's milk. Her constipation and daytime fussiness improved almost immediately after switching to the new formula. It is amazing! She now tends to get fussy just in the evening. Usually 8:00 pm is the witching hour. Dr. Goldberg tells us that she is colicky which will hopefully go away when she's 3 months... that's today people! I'm hoping it's according to her actual age and not her adjusted age.
(She is now 3 months and 1 week and her colic has not improved)

Weight - 10 lbs 6 oz!

Sleep - At night she usually sleeps from 10:00 pm - 3:30 am then she sleeps until about 7:00 am
(At 3 months and 4 days she slept through the night! She's done it 3 nights in a row now! Our new routine is bottle sometime in the 9 o'clock hour, bath, story and swaddle. She's been sleeping from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am)

Eat - Reese is up to 5 oz still every 3 hours, but at least once a day she'll go 4 hours in between. She is on Enfamil's Nutramigen formula. Can we say EXPENSIVE. 

Temperment - She's a feisty little thing. She is very sweet, but wants what she wants and she wants it NOW! 

Likes/Dislikes - Reese loves a bath and her brother. She does like to be naked. She LOVES to be held! She would be the happiest baby if I held her
She dislikes being hungry and alone. 

Nicknames - Peesey (Me), Peanut (Brian), Reesey (everyone)

Clothes size - In between Newborn and 0-3 months. Straight 3 months are still too big.

Language - She grunts and occasionally coos. Melts my heart.

Physical - Reese's head control is getting better. She can hold her head up for quite a bit, but it does get heavy for her :) She rolls over occasionally when on her belly.
She is smiling more and more each day. She smiles the most with Jaxon and my mom.

First time in the Bumbo

She's not quite sure about this thing

"Uh, Daddy, can you help me out over here?"

"Yup, my head is too heavy."

The prettiest smile!

At the pulmonologist... before the Synagis shot

Look at the cheeks! 

There's the smile again.
