3 months!

So I am a few days late on doing this, but Keira passed 3 months this week. She is officially out of the so-called "4th trimester". They are supposed to be more acclimatized to the outside world by 3 months. It has been simultaneously the longest and shortest 3 months of my life!
I didn't get a chance to redo my sign, but I did snap a few pics on the day. Look at her sitting up and smiling like a real little person:
Keira has taken on many milestones in the last few months. She would follow our finger starting really early - in the first week or two. She would follow objects from around 2-3 weeks. She started smiling around 4 weeks, and the coos and gurgles kicked in a few weeks after that. Just this past week we heard the first real belly laughs - this is a progression from the laugh that sounds like a screeching pterodactyl. She began grasping objects around 8 weeks and now loves to sit on her activity mat and pull on her zebra or lion. She has successfully rolled from her front to her back twice, and from her back to her front once (still trying to capture it on video, but so far, no luck). She has wonderful neck control and has been sitting up (with her back or chest supported by us) since 6ish weeks. She now loves it when daddy holds her hands so she can stand for a few seconds on his lap. We just tested out the jolly jumper today, and she tried her bumbo out on her 3 month birthday.
As they say, the grow so fast!

  1. ok k. gotta stop growing. aunty jaime is missing too much! you are so awesome (but will you let up on the crying already?!)

  2. Wow! This is such a great picture of Keira smiling. Even though I think she looks like you and also like Regan - she is looking more and more just like her own beautiful self now.

  3. Wow, such a smart baby. Tyler didn't roll over at all until almost five months!!!!
