Emma Lynn: 3 Months



Dear Emma::

You are an amazing little girl. I could end this here and that would describe you pretty good. It's not to say that you are never a handful and I never get frustrated with you when you struggle to sleep, but that doesn't mean you aren't amazing.

It's hard to believe you are already three months. These last three months have flown by. You have changed so much already. And you have grown so much! It's not until I look at the pictures of you that I realize how big you have really gotten.

You are a little champion sleeper at night. You usually go somewhere between 7 to 12 hours at night, which is pretty amazing. Naptime is definitely a different story. Some days go great where you nap in your port-a-crib during naptime and other days it doesn't work out that way. It's definitely our biggest struggle. Usually in the morning I can get you to nap in the swing for awhile then for the afternoon I always aim to get you down, but that's touch-and-go. Your evening naps are always a fight too. You have lately have been wanted to be held all the time. It's a little exhausting and something I definitely can't do with all the other things I have to do deal with around the house and with your siblings. So despite the amazing nights you give me, naps are a fight still.

You are eating pretty good. You are slowly wanting more. There are days that you eat 6 ounces almost every feedings and there are days that you only eat 4 ounces each time. You are still all over the place there, but you are eating good and you seem to be growing and happy so that's all that matters.

You are spending more time awake these days. You just want to see it all. And in fact you seem to always be doing sit-ups because you are always trying to sit up to see everything. You can see as far as the rest of us now and you want to take it all in. You often lay on your playmat now and swing your arms wildly trying to hit at the things that are hanging. You enjoy that quite a bit. It's fun that you are awake a lot more now. I enjoy seeing those eyes of yours.

You are a pretty easy, happy girl. Once we get your napping situation figured out, things will be a breeze with you. Or at least until you change everything again by learning something new. But for now you eat and sleep. You take in the world. You smile and have even started giggling some. Your brother and sister can't get enough of you and often fight to who is going to sit next to you.

We all love you so much, little girl.

Love Mama
