Rebecca Claire || Three Months
I'm successful at getting these photos taken at about the correct day of the month. Written and posted...not so much! Maybe in June and July it will be easier when I'm home during the day. Rebeca was three months old in the last week of school for both of us. It was her first week with her appetite back after two long weeks of a poor sick baby. She went to school some, threw up her milk a lot, and was pretty sleepy. Poor little tyke lost a bit of weight fighting the sickness so she only weighed about 12 lb. 6 oz when we saw the doctor on May 23. Now that we are together all the time for summer break, Rebecca is working hard all day and night on gaining some more weight back! I took these pictures in the Gap 3-6 month onesie, so it's a little bit big on her!
At three months, Rebecca was definitely into her hands, still quick to smile when she was feeling good and rocking that right dimple. We visited Kip's parents the weekend before I took these photos, and she was generally pleasant and willing to let anyone hold her. We try to do a good job reading to her, and I think this will continue to be a good part of the going to bed routine...when we get that routine part down! She goes down between 9 and 10, is up two-three times, and at daycare took sporadic naps. (Two weeks later, these things are mostly true, but we're working on it!) Kip and I still call her Becca and Rebecca in equal parts, though the iPhone regularly auto-corrects Becca to Mecca. Go figure. My mom calls her dolly, which is a shortened version of what my grandpa Lauren used for all the little girls in our family, dolly babe. Grandma Karen says she is the prettiest baby she ever saw, and we'll keep her.
