Three Months!

This morning, Lauren was telling me that he can't believe Elissa is only three months old. To him, it seems like she's been around forever. Is that a "second child thing"? I remember feeling like time was racing with Brayden - I just couldn't believe how quickly he grew up. 

Whether it's gone quickly or slowly, my little girl is three months old. And it's been a busy past few weeks.

Daddy calls her: Sa-Sa (just like big brother does!)
Mommy calls her: Angel + noun (-cake, -face, -pie) and Sweet Girl
Favorite toys: High contrast picture books, Lu-Lu (her giraffe lovey), the pop-and-play gym, and the keyboard activity mat. The picture books are such a winner with this girl! She adores having them shown to her (especially when her brother lays next to her and holds her hand ♥), and almost always calms down from a crying fit if I sit and read them with her.
She recently started: Laughing at tickles (instead of just at Daddy), grabbing toys, rolling over

So confused! This was Elissa right after she rolled over for the first time.

Sleep story: Elissa is a great night sleeper. Once she goes down for the night, she's set. She wakes once to eat and typically goes right back down. She used to be a great napper, as well. Recently, however, the 1.5-2.5 hour naps have made way for those annoying 30-45 minute ones. (We're currently trying a few things to address this) She's ahead of where her brother was at this time (mostly due to my own knowledge and efforts) and doesn't nurse to sleep anymore. She likes movement though and will fall asleep pretty easily if we walk/bounce with her. Our next step is trying to phase that out.
Eat story: No story. The girl eats like a man. Or a machine. (Choose your simile of preference.)
Budding personality: This little girl is sweet, social, and stubbornly determined. She's so fiesty and adorable; I love watching her try to do something (or adamantly insist on NOT do something). She just keeps at it and won't give up. She might be a little lady, but she's definitely strong-willed. She's also super cuddly, and simply loves attention. She's never happier than when we're giving her love and kisses. :)

Serenaded. ♥
