Happy 3 Months, Ella!

Today marks 3 months from Ella's birth. Time is flying by and here are some things she has been up to this past month:

- You are laughing and giggling so much these days. Your first real "belly laugh" was on Jan. 3rd.
- You like blowing bubbles with your spit.
- You make a unique "clicking" sound with your mouth.
- You rub your eyes when you are tired.
- You enjoy sucking your hands.
- You love your bouncy seat more than your swing these days.
- You are starting to notice Dingo, our dog. You smile when he comes to you.
- You are beginning to drool...I guess your gums are getting ready for some teeth.
- During your naps, the "45 minute intruder" comes!!! At almost EXACTLY 45 minutes into your nap you will wake up crying. We have to put a paci in your mouth to get you back to sleep so you have a full nap. Sometimes that intruder REALLY BUGS MOMMY AND DADDY!!!:) We are hoping this will pass really soon.
- You eat about 6 times a day at about 4 ounces at each feeding.
- If we walk away and leave you alone to play by yourself for too long, you will start cooing and talking real loud because you want our attention. When we come "play" with you, you start smiling and laughing. You LOVE social interaction!
- You are also "Miss Independent." You let us know when you want to be put down and left alone.
- You don't like to cuddle too would rather see the world around you.
- It seems your little personality is starting to develop.
