Avery Claire you are 3 months and 16 days olds. Sheesh..you are almost 4 months old I'm I just writing your 3 month post. Life has been so busy this last month. We celebrated your first Thanksgiving and of course it was great. We spent it in Mena with my family. They all loved getting to see you and as you are getting older and WAY more alert everyone has so much fun with you. You definitely look like me still and my side of the family, which is really cool. Several weeks ago was the first time I saw it without a doubt. You smiled really big at me and I had to laugh I felt like I saw myself.
You are precious ddefinitely more "high maintence" than your brother was at 3 months. No hard feelings, I promise. Its a honor to be able to care for you. You definitly have your favorite positions to sit in,you are sensitive to being too cold and too warm and quickly let us know if you are perfectly comfortable.When you are hungry--you are hungry and you are NOT happy until you eat. Speaking of eating you nurse about every 2 1/2-3 hours which is a lot better than a month ago when it was a stretch to get you to two hours. You are wear 3-6 months clothes, but you fit really comfortably in 6 months. You wear size 3 diapers and still don't like shoes on your feet. I love shoes and think they are so cute, but I prefer to go shoeless as well.
You are sleeping much better through the night. You usually go to sleep for the night around 9 and sleep til about 4 and then wake up again at 6 and 8. you sleep in your boppy in my bed, but at 4 you end up snuggling with me (bad habit, but its very sweet).
You totally recognize your dad, Roman and I and always give us those big toothless grins when we coo at you. Roman always loves on you and gets down in the floor and coos at you all the time. He's also quick to give you your paci whether you need it or not Ha.
You are a sweetheart and I love you so much. Having a little girl is such a blessing. I love you.
