Lucy 3 months

I think it is safe to say that Lucy is the sweetest baby I've ever known. Yes, yes Ford was sweet but a stubborn little boy who wanted constant entertainment. Lucy is a dream second baby. She is perfectly content watching her brother run around and play, she takes a bottle from anyone, sleeps anywhere, and is the happiest little girl! This month has been fun! Her personality is really developing and all it takes is one look at her and she grins ear to ear. I think I tell Jon at least once a day, "I am so glad we are past the newborn stage". Don't get me wrong, I love my newborn cuddle babies but this is the start of my favorite stage. Lucy brings so much JOY to our lives, I just can't imagine life without our little peanut lady. (she looks like such a chunk in these pics because of her cloth diapers.. well and she is a chunk!)











  • 14lbs according to our home scale, I think it is a little high but we go for her well check in a month
  • Beautiful blue eyes and light brown hair, I also spot a dimple sometimes on the left side, just like mama.
  • Such a sweet demeanor and personality. She smiles all the time and has started to giggle when you talk to her. She wants to talk so bad! She only cries when she is hungry or dirty but has learned to do the lip and it's adorable and hilarious.
  • Unfortunately she has her first cold right now but is still so happy and sleeping great! Ford was sick the week before and I guess it is inevitable that she got it.
  • LOVES big brother Ford! We bathe them together usually every other night and she just stares at him and smiles at everything she does. He loves washing her and showing her his toys and she is memorized. He loves getting on her play mat with her and putting his face right in hers and saying "Baby Girl, Baby Lucy!".
  • She is incredibly active, seriously this girl never stops moving. Her favorite thing is to be under her playmat just kicking and moving her arms, she seems like she is going to fly away. She does the same thing in her Mammroo and bouncer and I keep saying I wish we could find a way to connect her movements to an energy source.
  • She loves standing. She's not much of a cuddler unless shes tired but wants you to hold her up to stand (or sit up). Jon and I joke that she will skip crawling because she kinda sucks at tummy time but girlfriend wants to stand all day. I think we are going to put her in the exersaucer soon.
  • Bedtime is between 7:30-8p and wakes up for a quick nurse between 5-6a then goes back to sleep until around 7a. She's even slept 12 hours this month! She is a rockstar, 10-12 hour stretches at night make for one rested mama! She sleeps upstairs in her crib in a sleepsack.
  • I try to follow the Moms on Call schedule (infant/toddler one) and she's been napping 2-3 hours in the morning, 2-3 in the afternoon and 1 in the evenings. I've gotten good at getting both of them down at the same time in the afternoon, hallelujah! She usually takes her morning nap when we are on the go but afternoon and evening on our king sized bed (we just got room darkening shades in our bedroom, they are awesome). 
  • We follow the Eat/Wake/Sleep routine and she nurses every 3 hours during the day (8-9 hours at night) and takes a 4oz bottle of formula in the evenings.
  • Lucy is officially cloth diapered! We started about 3 weeks ago after I finished up our last pack of size 1 disposables and we are loving it. 
  • Wears 0-3m and 3m outfits, 3m jammies, no shoes yet.. her feet are so small!
  • Finally likes the Mamaroo!
  • We put her in the Fisher Price Sit Me Up Chair for the first time this month and she likes it for about 10 minutes then wants to stand.
  • Went to her first movie last week at 12 weeks old! We saw Mega Mind at a fancy movie theater with leather reclining chairs and she got her own seat! She was memorized for the first half of the movie then slept. 
  • Lucy is drooling like a dog and gnawing on her hands like crazy. She wears banana bibs everyday (Deeks & Me is my favorite!) and I am going to put an Amber necklace on her soon. She loves her Zoli teether and mini Sophie.
  • Grasps her toys and seems to enjoy looking at and batting at them on her carseat, bouncer, and playmat.
  • Rolled front to back early this month a few times but hasn't done it since. Now when we lay her on her back she tries to roll. 
  • Mama is feeling great and about 95% healed! My abs take a while to feel 100% post C section but last week I started T 25 and have been slowly working up to full range of motion for my abs.

You and Jon really make such pretty babies! Brent has gorgeous blue eyes, and I always dreamed of a little girl w my dark hair and Brent's blue eyes, but that wasn't in the cards. We'll see if I get my way for 1 more baby and maybe that one will get the blue eyes! I totally agree about the newborn phase - I'm glad you're out of it too!
