Our wee Alice turned 3 months old last week! So, yes, I am over a week late, but I do have some very cute pictures.
The first set of pictures were taken last week on the day she turned 3 months and the next set were taken today (over a week later). It does seem to make a little bit of difference.
We don't have a weight or stats for her as she does not have a doctor's appointment until she is 4 months old. However, she has obviously started putting on weight and is looking like a proper chubby baby! She is still in newborn clothes in these pictures, but has recently just grown out of her newborn cloth diapers and covers and is also moving into 0-3 month and 3 month clothes.
Her face in this one is so funny and thus I included it on here!
She does look a bit like Elanor as a baby, but also looks so much like my baby pictures, plus a lot just like herself. Alice smiles a lot, especially on her changing table (she loves it up there!). She has also had many little colds, which can make her a bit sad at times. She also often cries a lot for no apparent reason, such is baby life. She loves to nurse. Elanor was already sleeping eight hours or more at night at 3 months, but Alice usually only sleeps for 4 hours and then needs to eat. I've heard that sleeping through the night has to do with weight, so she will get there!
She is often a little trooper, and does not get to stay home and nap all the time like Elanor did. She has been on lots of hikes, camped twice, been to watch swim lessons and ballet class, had to run errands all the time, etc. Such is the life of every baby but the firstborn. Most of the time she is great, but will let you know when she has had enough and would like to go home.
She loves Elanor! This picture is so blurry, but she was laughing at Elanor and the two of them are so cute. Elanor is so great with her. She loves to hold, talk to, kiss, and help Alice in any way. Even though Alice is so young, you can still tell how much she loves Elanor as she perks up and smiles whenever she is around.
This is a Harry Potter onesie saying, "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." My parents got this for her! If you haven't got a clue what this phrase means, you should probably read the books.
Alice is quite "talkative". She coos and squeals and tries to mimic what we say. She also tries to communicate her feelings and will talk in this sad voice with sad noises and seems to be trying to tell us what is wrong. Elanor would do the same thing.
Elanor and Alice is their matching Marauders Map shirts. A great face by Alice.
Alice is quite strong. She has rolled over several times, but I still don't think she has quite gotten the hang of it. Her head is really stable and she can lift her head all the way up when on her tummy.
She can lift it higher than this, but I don't have a picture of it!
Alice is a delight and we are all so in love with her.
