This is a few days late (about a week actually), but we just got back from a whirlwind of a trip back South to meet all the family. It's always bittersweet when we get home, sad to leave family, but glad to be back to our routine and own bed again.
Maddie has turned 3 months old! No longer a newborn anymore, which I can't decide if I'm happy or sad about. I'm pretty sure she just gets cuter and more entertaining by the day. At 10 weeks she weighed about 12 pounds, but we don't go to the doctor for another month to find out how much she's still grown.
Maddie is full of smiles, giggles and coos. She has discovered her hands and feet. She loves to chew on her fingers. She also has learned to swing at her toys and bring blankets or anything in her lap to her mouth to suck on. She will only sometimes take a pacifier. Her gas/reflux seems to be getting better which we are so thankful for! She loves bath time - until she is taken out of her tub. Maddie is a wiggler, loves to kick and throw her arms around. Still fusses when swaddled, she likes her freedom.
We go walking twice a week with some friends, we've even started venturing outside lately (with the 4 feet of snow still left). And Matt still watches Maddie twice a week during his lunch so I can visit the gym.
I feel like it's getting easier. I don't know if it's the age or the just understanding what it's like having a baby. Being her mother is such a blessing. I fall in love with her more every day. Happy three months baby girl.
