Happy 3 months to Parker! Well, 3 months this past Monday but it's hard to blog in a timely fashion with a baby around :) At the pediatricians appointment on Monday Parker weighed in at 13lb 14oz (80th percentile) and is now 24 3/4 inches (90th percentile). And to think that just a few months ago she was only 7lbs 12oz!
This past month has brought about a lot of developments with Parker. She discovered her hands and has not stopped playing with them ever since! She's always putting them into her mouth, playing with them together, and grabbing onto toys. Her hand-eye coordination also appeared this month. It's amazing to watch her lay down on her activity mat and grab toys when just a few weeks ago should would swipe aimlessly at them. Little baby laughs are starting to appear and they just make my day. The laughing is really supposed to start in the fourth month so I can't wait for that to be a daily thing for Parker! Every day Parker's neck control gets better and while I miss those early newborn days and weeks we had with her, I certainly don't miss the floppy neck! It's much easier to hold her now that she can hold her own neck up! Parker also loves to stand (supported, of course!) and has a blast in her jumperoo. What an exciting month it's been for Parker!
I had to document her 3 month birthday by taking a ton of pictures :)
What a big girl!!
