Baby Kate is 3 months old! How about an update post?
Weight: at her very-late 2 month appointment (aka when she was 2.5 months old), she weighed 13 lbs 8 oz. She's definitely gotten heavier since then, but we didn't have a checkup this month so we'll have to wait til 4 months for an official new weight. My guess is somewhere around 14, pushing 15 maybe.
Height: at the same appointment, she was 25 inches tall. I measured her with my sewing measuring tape the other day, and it said 28 inches. How is that even possible? 7 inches since birth? If that's accurate, she's still in the 99th percentile.
Firsts this month: grabbing her toes, grabbing toys and stuff in front of her, following objects in front of her eyes very easily, pushing herself up completely supported when she's on her tummy (and in the mood to do it).
nothing new this month but recurring strength of Big Belly
Other things to note:
-She officially can't fit into 0-3 month clothes - but no surprise there. Her 3-6 month onesies are getting tight long-ways too, so those are going to be gone soon I'm guessing. Good thing her mom went on a fun hunt when the Gap was having a huge baby clearance!
- I think she might be starting to cut her first tooth. There's the faintest hint of one of her two front coming in, and it is slowly slowly poking through. Luckily there hasn't been any resultant fussiness really yet, but I'm getting nervous about it...
- She can almost sit up by herself when she's the right combination of full/awake. But it's still a guessing game most of the time if she's going to completely faceplant or not.
- She's definitely developed a routine during a normal day, and can get crabby if she doesn't stick to it. But it's not usually anything that can't be remedied by the next day!
- At nights she's mostly sleeping about 12 hours, from 10 p.m. to 9/10 a.m., with one break to eat around 5:30-6:00. Of course that's not every night, but most nights it's pretty reliable! She's a miracle baby.
We love you, Kate!
