Avalon Elle: Three Months

Our Avalon Elle turned three months over the holiday weekend, she is officially an entire thirteen weeks old now.  Happy three months to our littlest lady baby!


I feel like Avalon has really matured this month, it has been so much fun to watch her little personality develop more & more!  Overall, she is still pretty laid-back and just has the sweetest, calmest demeanor.  She loves to snuggle more than anything and is almost always happy, her smiles are absolutely contagious and you can't help but smile right along with her.  We laugh because although Waverly was a happy baby too, they just seem so different, it definitely seems like Avalon may be the more chill babe of the two.  There is really no better word to describe her than sweet, I could just eat her up! :)

New milestones are that she can grab onto things now, she is more interested in what is going on around her just in general, she can last longer on a playmat and likes to look at toys that we hold in front of her.  She is so close to rolling over, it should happen any day, & as crazy as this sounds, I think sitting up may not be that far behind.  For as little as she is, she is incredibly strong and any time we lay her down she immediately starts pulling her head up to sit on her own.  Maybe it's true what they say, second children do things faster!

Sleep is going pretty well, we finally figured naps out after we realized that she was getting overtired and that we weren't putting her down soon enough.  She typically has between an hour to an hour & a half of awake time until she is o for over it.  As for eating, she is still a great eater, she has figured the bottle out after a week with me back at work!  It really is such a relief, I was starting to get worried that my mom would have to drive her to my school so I could run out and feed her!  We have had some issues with reflux, our pediatrician prescribed her Zantac & so far, it seems to be working so well.  We are so, so thankful, there is nothing that makes your mama heart break more than when your (normally happy) baby is uncomfortable & there is nothing you can do about it.  Hoping that is behind us!

Avalon's hair is growing, which is the opposite of Waverly, who was born with a little more hair & then lost it.  It seems to be coming out curly, my husband has curls (ringlets!) when his hair is grown so it will be interesting to see what hers does.  She is still in size one diapers & 0-3 months clothes, most of which are still really big on her, so I definitely think we have some time before the 3-6 get to make their debut!  She is just a tiny little lady, everyone always comments on how small she is when we are out & most often think she is younger than she is.

It's hard to believe that it's been an entire three months of life with her, yet like always, I can't remember life before her.  She truly is the most perfect addition to our family & I'm so excited to continue to watch her grow!


Avalon's month one & month two posts are here and here!

  4. She just LOOKS sweet!!! She is ADORABLE!! Louise is older than her but a little further behind…she wants to grab things, but she isn't QUITE there yet. Rolling over will take some time, but I feel like as soon as she has these strength to do anything, she will be off and running! She's always been strong in the neck and back, so she loves to sit in the Bumbo, but otherwise, she still seems so young and weak. I kinda of like it. :) xo

  8. She is stunning! Naptime are a bit wonky over here too. Finn has to be on the go with Liam's schedule so his sleeping is often disrupted.

  9. She is just the sweetest little thing.
    I'm only slightly jealous of your nap and sleep routines (we are still all over the place). And LOVING that her hair is coming in curly.
    Happy 3 Months, Avalon!

  10. She just looks like the sweetest! She is so adorable! Happy 3 months little lady! I have to say I feel the opposite on the second child doing things faster... I 100% agree that the second seems to grow up WAY faster, like WAY, but in our experience Crew has been SO MUCH slower than Charli. Although Charli seemed to do everything a lot earlier than normal, he doesn't do half of the things she was doing by this age! hahaha! My feeling is it is a boy/girl thing... but who knows! Every child is different thats for sure! xoxo
