Finger Sucking and Rolling Over

I have the cutest baby in the whole world. I am so in love with my little girl. As I type this, she is sitting in front of me in her vibrating bouncy chair just looking at me and sucking on her fingers.

Speaking of which, Lizzie always seems to suck on her first two fingers - never her thumb. So cute!

She is getting more and more alert. In this past week or so, she's started to reach out for things. She also loves being held looking out now, so she can look at the world.

Oh, I forgot to write about Lizzie being able to roll over! From belly to back, that is. She's speedy at it! On Christmas Eve, I was trying to get a video of her rolling over, but she was too quick! So in the video, you can see my hand holding her in place at the beginning. =)

I miss sleep...

Dang do I miss Lizzie being able to sleep on her tummy! Long gone are the days where she slept 5-6 hours at a time! The last few nights its been closer to 2-3 hours at a time. I think she's also going through a growth spurt, so she's eating constantly. I bet she grows a foot this week.

My milk supply still isn't where I want it to be, but its better than it was. I went back to the lactation consultant this week - Lizzie weighed 11 lbs 7 oz and ate 3 oz pretty quickly. A lot better!

By the way, my favorite sound ever is Elizabeth's laughter. I could listen to that all day long.

Here is Elizabeth's 3 month picture!

Just a few notes

Elizabeth has been growing so fast! She holds her head up so well. She is turning into such a big girl! She's not even 3 months old yet and I feel like she's not my tiny little baby anymore.

She is so smart. You can almost see her brain working when she's focusing on something. She found her fingers this past week. She is constantly sucking on her hand - not so much her thumb, but her hand. So cute. She also has started copying me when I stick my tongue out at her. She has the cutest tongue in the world, by the way!

I've also noticed her playing with the hair on the back of her head. Sometimes she grabs it and pulls it and then starts crying. My poor baby!

I also went to see the lactation consultant on Tuesday. My supply seems to have taken a dip, so I have started on the herb Fenugreek. Hopefully that helps. At the visit, Lizzie ate a total of about 3 oz, after going back and forth twice. Butt naked she weighs 11 lbs 1 oz.

Happy New Year!

Well, we have started Elizabeth's 1st New Year! She's very excited, I can tell.

Thursday night (Jan 1st), Lizzie slept ALL NIGHT. And all morning and part of the afternoon. She fell asleep around 12:30 am and she slept until 2:30 in the afternoon! Well, I shouldn't say she slept that whole time, but she was able to self sooth and fall back to sleep on her own every time. Finally once when she was stirring, I picked her up to feed her before she could fall asleep again!

One of the times I checked on her, she was half awake. She gave me this huge smile and then sucked on her finger for a few seconds. She's so dang cute.

Oh, and another time I checked on her, she had her arm out of her sleeper. Not just out of her swaddle, but out of neck hole in her sleeper! I have no idea how she did that! I put her arm back in the sleeper and reswaddled her and she feel right back to sleep. Silly girl.
