It is wild to think that my baby girl is now 3 months old, time has flown by so quickly and I can already see such major changes about her. I do sometimes miss being pregnant, mostly just feeling the movements inside of me, knowing I was carrying and protecting her.
During the first month of Motherhood, it was a little difficult, mostly because we were dealing with family stuff and I was mostly alone with her for the first little while. At that point I was also trying to get into the swing of things and trying to figure out which each cry meant. Not to mention I was also super paranoid to the point I had to go to her crib often and check to make sure if she was breathing. I also had her in bed with me more often during the first little while. She has always been so great around other people and only cried when she needed to eat, a diaper change or if her tummy was upset. She also slept A LOT, but that is common for babies.
Two months in she started talking a lot more, showing interest in colours and shapes along with her surroundings. Her feedings have increased in ounces, she has now been consuming 5oz every 3-4 hours. Sleeps well at night, typically goes 4-7 hours for sleeping and only cries or makes noises when her soother falls out of her mouth. Her neck has become so strong already, that I feel like she should be able to fully support herself before she reaches 4 months old. She loves being talked to, read to and she also loves going for walks and drives.
When we go for walks or do any outings together, she is so well behaved, but since she has shown more of an interest with her surroundings, she has been forcing herself to stay awake while we are out or around other people, to the point where she does end up crying very heavy when she gets incredibly tired. Currently, I do think that is the most hardest part is to get her to nap and unwind before she overly exhausts herself.
We are pretty sure we even heard her do a little giggle today, which felt so amazing to hear.

I cannot wait to see what milestones she will reach during the next few months.
