Happy 3 Months Ella!



I can't believe Ella is 3 months old already. My how time flies when you aren't getting any sleep! Ella is still not sleeping through the night, however she is getting better. Lately she has only been waking up at around 3:30am, so we are improving. She weighs 13 lbs and is 25 inches long so she is certainly growing! Kyler only weighs 26 lbs. Ella is soooo going to be beating Kyler up some day! Ella is a good eater, however she can't seem to take in large amounts at a time and if she gets to much it all comes back up (usually all over me!). She takes about 3 ounces at a feeding and any more then that and we have it all over us. The Dr suggested trying some Mylanta to see if that helps and it does appear to help with the spit up. I have never seen a baby spit up so much. We always have to have at least 2 burp rags handy or we have one heck of a mess.
Ella enjoys swinging, rocking, being held, and eating! She hates tummy time, although she can roll over so tummy time isn't much of an issue anymore, and being ignored. If you are not paying attention to her she is very quick to let us know that that is not acceptable! She still has no interest in a binkie, however, she is quite fond of that thumb so we have quit pushing the binkie thing. She is on a good routine and naps in the morning, afternoon, and late afternoon. Sometimes for her afternoon nap her and mommy just rock in the chair and cuddle. It's a perfect time for me to get my cuddles in since Kyler is asleep. It's also a perfect time to get some cleaning done, however, cuddles are way more important!!
