Our Remie Rue turned THREE MONTHS Monday, I have been thinking so much about the day she was born since — it seems like it was two minutes ago & absolutely forever ago all at the same time.
And look at her sweet face!!!!! I could eat her.
Three months is definitely the sweet spot for Miss Remerie. She has grown out of her reflux (!!!) which we found out when she got RSV last month and I stopped a couple doses and she showed none of the signs she had before. She is also just more laid-back in general, she will sit in the bumbo or lay with toys in front of her completely content forever (or until one of her big sisters comes running over to pick her up) and is just the happiest little lady, always smiling. Even when gets upset, she is the first of my babies to be able to soothe herself this early, she will either suck her thumb or her two fingers and can even put herself to sleep this way. Overall she is completely living up to the whole “third baby being the easiest” thing (for now) and I am thankful for that.
We moved her to her room the week before I went back to work, and even though that was sad for me, I think it was the best thing for all of us. She is sleeping way better now, and obviously so are we, and it also has brought a sense of normalcy and routine back that you just don’t have in those first couple of months. The hour of quiet time at night after all three girls are asleep is also good for my soul, I just need it to recharge for the next day. I have so much respect for those who co-sleep and it works for them, but it just isn’t for me and I am completely fine admitting that. 😉
Remie rolled over for the first time about a week ago (from her back to her belly!) and has done it sooooo many times since. She is so strong for such a little thing! She is SO CLOSE to laughing and I am pretty sure when she finally does, it will be either Waverly or Avalon who makes it happen because they always get the biggest smiles. She is still in some newborn clothes but mostly 0-3, and wears a lot of hand-me-downs from the big girls, which is always so special to see. She loves bath time and to nurse, she is taking a bottle pretty well while I am at work but most definitely prefers to breastfeed and it’s one of my favorite parts of the day also.
She is just such a dream and even though being outnumbered is definitely crazy, life with her in it is just so much better than before and I could never imagine it any other way.
We LOVE you, sweet Remie Rue — here’s to 12 beautiful weeks & soooooo many more ahead! XO
PS – Looking at these pictures makes me realize how much I LOVE itty bitty tights for my first fall newborn, she seriously lives in them. They are sooo much easier than socks which fall off all the time, I get all of hers from Little Light Feet and they are the best quality EVER!
