3 Months Old Today

Maren is 3 months old! She really is quite a happy relaxed baby. She does cry and get upset, but mostly if she wants to eat or needs a diaper change or just some attention. She has no real set schedule, but most nights sleeps a 6 hour stretch from about 11-5. She is very strong and can hold her head up pretty well now. She is starting to do more with her hands and played hitting her bear for a long time just a few nights ago. She makes lots of fun sounds and faces. She may be our first thumb sucker. She still sometimes gets her full fist in there or her knuckles, but I think she likes her thumb. Her eyes are blue and one still has a plugged tear duct so it gets goopy sometimes. She still has some of that fuzzy dark hair. She has lost a little in back and it doesn't seem like more has grown so we will see what happens with her hair. She is kind of chunky all around and probably is somewhere around 12 pounds. But my favorite is still when she smiles - it just lights up her whole face and makes me so happy!

Thumb suckers are the best! She sure does smile with her whole face. What a cutie!

She's so stinkin' cute. I especially love the mommy and baby picture at the top.
