Charley Bear - 3 months

[1 month, 2 months]

I realize I am now 9 days late, but "late" is my middle name lately so that's nothing new. Anyways, I have to write this stuff down or I'm going to forget it! My little lady is growing so fast!

I really slacked off with the bear pictures too. I only have weeks 10 and 12. Oops.

Her big accomplishments this month have to do with her hands. She has learned how to hold onto toys (and much prefers her left hand)...


...and has mastered the art of thumb sucking. She still has a little trouble finding her thumb sometimes, but once she's got it, she's a happy little lady. Each morning when I go into her room to wake her up, I can hear her before I get to her because she is going to town sucking on her thumb. I think the open handed thumb sucking is the cutest thing ever, by the way.


She's still working on picking her head up while she's on her tummy, but has pretty great head control while I'm holding her. She's not interested in rolling over yet, but I bet that is coming soon.

Oh! And I almost forgot! While the car seat was on Charley's list of hated things from the two-month-old blog post, it has somehow become more tolerable to her. I wouldn't say she loves it yet, but I can happily say that I've had much more pleasant car rides and even trips to the store with no tears or screams. The thanks for this goes to my sister (who keeps Charley for us every day while we work) because she has broken her into the car seat. It's not that she keeps her in the car seat all day or anything, but she does have carpool duty a few times a week and Charley has had no choice but to get used to her seat. After a few tearful, screaming car pool rides, she has since gotten used to it and dare I say, even smile while in her seat sometimes. Thank you, thank you, thank you sister!


Also, she is now taking a bottle with no complaints, which is good since I've been back at work for two weeks now. Glad she didn't decide to starve all day while I am at work. We did switch bottles to the Avent brand and all is well with that now.

But most importantly, she's still really freaking cute and such a good baby.


I love my Charley girl! Happy 3 months baby!

The leggings! I die. So cute :)

Glad Charley is loving the car seat more. Doesn't all seem right with the world when you can finally leave the house with them?
