Three Months with Amelia

Amelia is 3 months old!

I keep a journal to write monthly letters to Amelia, and of course I need to dump some photos and memories here as well. The first two months’ posts were a bit jumbled – I blame it (and everything else for that matter) on sleep deprivation – but in the spirit of the new year let’s get organized, shall we?

So here’s a recap of the first three months, and then I’ll try to keep this structure going forward.

One Month

The Amateur Librarian // 1 Month

Likes: nursing, sleeping on anybody’s chest, peeking one eye open, rootin’ and tootin’

Dislikes: not being held, sleeping by herself

Size: 10 lbs, 20 in long; newborn diapers and clothes

Doing: opening her eyes, looking at faces, nursing every hour

Firsts: smile, sink bath, two pediatrician visits, stroller walk in the neighborhood, bottle, visit to the voting polls, babysitters (Grandmom and Grandpop), photo shoot, Halloween

Two Months

The Amateur Librarian // 2 Months

Likes: bath time, butterfly rattle, crinkly sounds, snuggling in Daddy’s armpit, nursing to sleep, fans

Dislikes: waiting to eat, tummy time after 5 minutes

Size: 11 lb 1 oz, 22 in long, size 1 diapers, 0-3 months clothing

Doing: lifts head during tummy time, tracks toys with eyes, kicking, smiling, cooing, nursing every 1-2 hours

Firsts: Thanksgiving, met Santa, bath in the big tub, Dickens of a Christmas fair, hip ultrasound

The Amateur Librarian // 2 Months

Three Months


Likes: splashing in the bath tub, waking up and smiling in the morning, neighborhood walks (the faster and bumpier the better), napping in her swing, Sophie the Giraffe, kicking on her music mat

Dislikes: falling asleep, when diaper changes take too long, getting bored, belly pains

Size: size 1 diapers, 3-6 months clothing

Doing: discovering her hands and feet, kicking, “standing,” holding up head, still nursing every 1-2 hours

Firsts: Christmas, meeting extended family in MS, library visit, road trips to MS and AL, putting hands in mouth, snow, sitting up supported by the bumbo seat

And now for the fun part: photos! A few moments from our third month with Amelia:
