Miss Pyper-- One, Two, Three months!

I wrote a post about Pyper when she was a month old but never posted it... and life is crazy with 3 tinies and I never wrote about her when she was two months old and now she's already three months old!  So that's crazy... anyway, here's her 1-month post and now a 3-month post!

It's a little wild that a month has already passed since this little girl came into our lives!  I can't imagine life without her.  She hasn't hit any big milestones yet, so there's not too much to report. 

- She's still nice and chubby-- but really only in her cheeks.  Her legs and arms are spindly like the other girls' were.
- She's still wearing newborn clothes and diapers. 
- Her head also must be smaller than the other girls', because the majority of our little headbands still don't fit her. 
- She is getting better at sleeping at night.  She usually sleeps between 3.5-4.5 hours for the first stretch of the night, and then goes another 2.5-3.5 before eating again.  During the day she usually eats every 2-3 hours and generally sleeps when she's not eating.  She's awake for between 3-4 hours a day I think.  She's by FAR my sleepiest baby!

Three months old:

At her 2-month well check, Miss Pyper weighed 11 pounds (65%) and was 23 inches tall (61%).  She is by far my chubbiest baby, and I love it so much!

At three months old, here's what Pyper is up to:

- She is getting close to rolling from back to front, but hasn't gotten it yet.
- Her core strength is getting better, and she can sit in her Bumbo.
- She loves her jumper!  She hasn't actually been able to jump yet but she pushes herself around in circles.
- She doesn't have a set schedule during the day, but usually is only awake for 1-2 hours at a time and then sleeps for 1-2 hours.  She goes to bed between 7-8pm and sleeps til between 12-1am, then eats and goes back to sleep til around 5am, eats again and goes to sleep til between 8-9am.
- She loves to suck on her fists.  She hasn't found a favorite finger or thumb, which I'm grateful for.  But she does soothe herself with her fist.
- Her thighs are getting chubbier, and I'm obsessed!
- She is so so happy!  She loves to smile and laugh.
- Pyper loves Pat-a-Cake and Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.
- She loves Lexsi SO much!  Whenever Lex is around, Pyper is cooing and smiling at her.  She's a little afraid of Mia (for good reason).  Mia loves Pyper so so much, she just isn't the most gentle person around.  Ha!
- She isn't really a total mama's girl OR daddy's girl.  She likes us both a whole lot.  She obviously prefers me when she's tired, cause she wants to nurse.  But generally she doesn't prefer one of us to the other.
- She's pretty spoiled because I hold her almost the whole day.  She'll sit in her Bumbo, swing, bouncer or jumper, but she really likes to be held the best.  And that's totally okay with me!  I have 2 other tiny girls that need my attention too, but I don't want to miss this time with Pyper while she's an infant.  I know how fast these girlies grow up and gain independence, so I'm happy to haul her around as long as she'll let me!
- Her hair is just getting long enough that it stands up straight when she gets out of a bath.  It's looking like it'll turn brown,
- Her eyes are still blue. I'm convinced she'll have blue or hazel eyes.  My mom thinks they're for sure turning brown.  We shall see!

Lex made Pyper play dress up with her.  Haha!

The big girls got bored and stickered Pyper up:
