Carson: Three Months Old

Brace yourself for a picture overload! Our sweet girl Carson is three months old and what a joy she is! 

Here is what she's up to at 3 months:
She weighs approx. 13.8 pounds (according to our scientific weight me, then weight me plus baby technique)
She is about 25.5 inches long
She wears mostly 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers still. 0-3 mos stuff is usually too short for her now.
She eats every three hours during the day, the last of which is at 8pm. She started sleeping through the night (9pm-8am) at 11 weeks. 
She does love to be swaddled still, so we are slowly trying to break her of that. Right now she's napping without it!
She takes 3 naps, each about an hour long, throughout the day and usually wants a catnap around 6:30pm.
She still loves to kick her legs and her bouncy seat is her favorite place to play.
This month Kaitlyn has been loving on you three days a week while I'm at work. You start daycare 3 days/week next week! 

You bring an incredible amount of joy to our lives, something I never could have imagined until holding you in my arms. There was a part of me that was actually a little sad when you started sleeping through the night because it was one less time a day I get to snuggle with you. Silly mommy, I know. I think you not only look like your daddy, but you have his chill personality right now, too. You are our little slice of heaven and we do not take the responsibility of caring for you lightly. We love you so very much, Carson!

You love kicking and splashing during bathtime.

Your cousin Lela came to visit. She is loud and on the move -- you weren't quite sure what to think! I'm sure you will be best buds in the years to come.

You do like sucking on your fingers often.

One of mommy's favorite outfits for you. Precious girl!

You will smile for anyone who talks to you -- those who are extra silly like Aunt Jess get extra smiles! Our friend Adam did get you to giggle for the first time. I've gotten a little one after that, but not regularly yet.

Our little doll baby. You are so beautiful, Carson!

All dressed up for Sunday school.

On your 3 month birthday you got to have a little play date with Holden Rapp. His life is a miracle and I hope you guys get to be friends when you're older, even though they are moving to Houston soon!

You're happy, healthy and growing. Praise the Lord.
