3 month update for Ava Marie

My sweet baby girl is 3 months old today!  I can't believe how different she looks when I look back at her newborn photos. Everyone says she looks exactly like my Husband, but she has some of my expressions!

The last week has been tough since my maternity leave ended and I went back to work.  Luckily, she is in good hands and I have something to really look forward to after work!  Ava is such a happy girl and smiles all of the time now.  She has become so vocal and she coo's rather than crying unless she's hungry or very tired.  My favorite time of the day is waking up to her sweet smile and hearing her babble away.

Ava weighs 11 lbs 14oz  and won't have her next check up until 4 months.  I'm anxious to hear how long she has gotten!  She loves playing on her activity mat and has started lifting her legs really high in attempts to roll to her side.  She's become a real pro at tummy time and can hold her head up so easily now.  We have a little game where she lays on her back and I pull her to a standing position by holding her hands and she loves it!  She looks so little and cute when she stands :)

We have developed a great routine of eat, play, sleep.  Ava loves sticking her hands into her mouth and chewing on her burp cloth.  She typically eats 4-5oz 6 times a day.  Ava is sleeping 9-10 hours a night, sometimes even longer.  She is mesmerized by the tv, which I do not like to have her watch too often! She also loves staring at our chandelier, listening to music and going outside with her Daddy.  Sometimes I wish time would slow down so she could stay tiny forever, but I love watching her become such a sweet little girl and seeing her learn and grow.

Mommy and Daddy love you Ava Marie!
