Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Megan turned 3 months old last week. In some ways it seems like she's been with us for so much longer than that. This is what Megan has been up to the past month...

Usually Megan goes to sleep completely swaddled on her side. But in the morning, the arms are out and by her ears and she's on her back. We have no idea how she gets her arms out and keeps the blankets so tight. Houdini baby!

Here is a picture of the cute crib set that Great-Grandma Clayson got her.
***Mom, maybe you could show her this picture since she was asking about it***

Megan has made lots of progress this month as far as sleeping goes.
  1. She has graduated from the bassinet in mom and dad's room to the crib in her own room. This change was probably harder for mom than Megan.
  2. We have successfully moved her bedtime up to 9:00 or 9:30 rather than the 10:00 or 11:00 that she was doing a month ago. It's nice to have a little time to ourselves at night and we have a very happy baby in the morning!
  3. She is getting to be a pro at taking naps in her own bed. She LOVES to sleep while someone is holding her, so it was hard to get her to nap in her own bed.
Megan has started grabbing and batting at things. The thumb is still stuck inside that little fist though, so grabbing isn't that productive.

Megan rolled from her stomach to her back once this past month. It has yet to be repeated. It must have been a total accident the first time.

The novelty of smiling and laughing has sort of worn off. She still smiles and laughs, but you have to work a little harder to get them. She still loves talking to people and has been working on her screaming.

Megan is about 12.5 pounds. She is getting some pretty chubby cheeks! :)

Other Accomplishments for the Little Lady this Month:
- She tasted a squirt of juice from a Clementine and loved it. She got a taste of applesauce and wasn't a big fan.
- She slept away from home for the first time (besides the hospital stays of course) and did great.
- She loves playing airplane or super baby or the like with dad.
