Emma :: 3 months old

My sweet Emma James,


You are 3 months old today! It is SO true that the 2nd baby seems to grow up so much faster. This has been a great month for you. Your daddy, brother, and I are absolutely crazy about you. You have the sweetest little personality. Hudson adores you and loves to give you kisses. You are beautiful!

I love having you and your brother so close in age. There are difficult days but I think that could be said about any age difference. You and Hudson will never know life without the other one. You will be such great friends and I love that. 


You sleep GREAT! With Hudson he had to have a lot of "help" in this department. You really don't need much help at all. This month you really started sleeping through the night. We started putting you to bed around 8:30 and slowly pushed it to 7:00 and most nights you will sleep until 6:00 or 7:00 the next morning. If you do wake up it is usually around 3:00 and you will nurse for about 10 minutes and go right back to sleep. You are now taking most of your naps in your crib and doing great. You nap around 8:30, 11:00, and 2:00. 

You started going into the church nursery this month and you are finally taking a bottle!! I am SO SO happy about this! You don't love the bottle but you will sort of play with it until you are hungry enough to take it. 


You are such a happy baby! I love going to get you out of your crib in the mornings. You are SO smiley! Speaking of that smile...you have what I call your cheerleader smile. It's so big and cheesy! I love it! You do wake up like your daddy. Slowly. You like to lay in your crib for a while and slowly wake up. You don't want to eat right away either. It's so funny how you are so much like him in that way. Your brother wakes up just like me...ready to go! 

You've started cooing so much. I love having little conversations with you. I can't wait until you are older and we get to have real conversations! You have also found the fan. That will hold your attention for about 10 minutes. 


Your head control is getting so much better. Tummy time still isn't your favorite activity. You will usually just find your fist and suck on that. You don't hate it but you're just sort of lazy with it. You RARELY take a paci. I try all the time and it's just not your favorite thing. When you do take one you will use a Wubbanub. But you won't take a regular Soothie paci. You're picky. :)

Emma James, we love you so very much. I can't wait to watch you continue to learn, grow, and develop. 

Love,
Mommy
