Watch Me Grow: Three Months

Look who’s one-quarter of the way to her first birthday!


Here’s a look back at the past three months.

Evelyn’s personality is shining through more and more each day.  She gets the biggest smiles in the morning when she sees Trenton and Charlotte.  I can’t wait to see her relationship with them evolve.

I often get asked who Evelyn looks like.  I really didn’t think that she looked very much like Charlotte.  Until I did this…

Yep, they’re definitely related!

And we’ve finally started gaining weight!  The formula has done wonders for Evelyn’s weight gain.  It hasn’t done anything to help the spitting up, but at least we’re putting on some pounds.  Evelyn is still on her reflux meds too.  They help neutralize the acid, but don’t help with the amount Evelyn spits up – which is A LOT.  We go through a new burp cloth at nearly every feeding.  But as long as Evelyn is gaining weight and isn’t too fussy with the spitting up, the doctor wants us to leave things where they are.

Weight: 10 pounds, 11 ounces
Height: Not taken this month
Eating: 4 ounces of formula every 4 hours
Sleeping: Girlfriend is a little alarm clock and wakes up for feedings every four hours, even during the night.  I wake her up to feed her around 10:00-10:30 when I go to bed, she wakes up around 2:30 for another bottle, and then again at 6:30.  She normally falls back asleep for a nap while I’m taking the big kids to school and stays asleep until it’s time to pick them up.  She gets another nap after lunch and then goes down for the night after dinner. 
Diapers: Size 1 – We switched from Pampers Swaddlers to Huggies Little Snugglers, and it has helped with Evelyn’s diaper rash.  It’s still not totally healed up from last month, but is at least looking a little better.
Clothes: 0-3 months – She probably has 2-4 more weeks in these.
Shoe Size: Still haven’t found any that fit.

She is so, so cute!! I can't believe she's 3 months old already! Glad that she is gaining weight too, that's got to be a relief! Hopefully her spitting up will get better soon too! :)

Okay - that went by way too fast. And she looks so much like her big sister - wow!! :)

We have major spit up issues with Alex too, so I totally feel you on that front. Oy!
