Lucy Mae: 3 Months



Lucy Mae keeps getting more and more fun! She is getting to be so alert and can really focus on things like faces, books and toys. She also recognizes when I'm shaking her bottle to get it ready for her to eat! She can have "conversations" with people by cooing and squawking. Lucy is able to play for long stretches of time (30-45 minutes!) with her play mat and can listen to stories for anywhere from 10-30 minutes before she needs something else to do.



Lucy still loves to snuggle and when she gets ready for a nap, she loves to suck on her binky and fall asleep in my arms. When she's falling asleep is one of my favorite times because she is so calm and observant; just looking around at all the things to see as she slowly drifts off to sleep.



This last month has been a big month for Lucy. It included her first Christmas, her first New Year's (which she actually was almost awake for!) and her first flight/long vacation. She also got to meet Holly, Travis and her bestie Margo for the first time.


She is also getting on a fairly regular schedule. She will usually wake up between 6:00 and 7:00, sometimes even 8:00! She will eat, play for a bit and then be ready for a nap after being awake for 1-1 1/2 hours. She will nap for anywhere from 1-2 hours. Then she's up to eat and play again for about 2 hours. Lucy will usually take a pretty good nap in the afternoons for about 2-3 hours. She's awake again around 3:00 or 4:00 and will be up and playing until about 6:00 when we try to get her to take one more short nap, then she's up between 7:00 and 7:30. She gets ready for bed around 8:00 with jammies, vitamins, a bottle and some stories before she is swaddled and rocked to sleep. She is usually down for the night between 8:30 and 9:00, but some nights it's closer to 10:00 if she took a later evening nap.



Lucy's Favorites:

  • Lucy loves playing with the rattle Gooma and Goompa got her for Christmas as well as her Rapunzel doll she got from Disney World. 
  • Getting her diaper changed is still her favorite activity. 
  • Bathtime is still fun, but she really loves sitting on the edge of the sink and putting her feet in the running water. 
  • Story time is her jam! She can be screaming but as soon as I put her in story reading position and start reading she will usually calm right down. 

Lucy's Not-So-Favorites:

  • Still doesn't like being hungry or disruptions to her eating. 
  • She also isn't a fan of being on her tummy too long. She likes to do tummy time but once she is over it, she lets us know!
  • Sacrament Meeting and Relief Society are rough. But she loves Sunday school!

Things I Don't Want to Forget:

  • How much Lucy LOVED Disney World. She was such a champ and did fantastic sleeping in her stroller and the baby carrier. Lucy loved the rides she went on, especially It's A Small World, Peter Pan and Dumbo. 
  • Meeting Rapunzel and Snow White! They both thought Lucy was the cutest thing. Lucy liked Rapunzel the best, but Snow White gave her a kiss and played peek-a-boo with Lucy using her cape. It was the cutest!
  • How cute Lucy looked in her Cinderella ears. 
  • How much Lucy was uninterested in Christmas festivities, haha. Maybe next year!

Milestones:

  • 12/25 First Christmas
  • 12/31 First New Years Eve
  • 1/8 First flight
  • 1/9-1/16 First long vacation (Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando)
  • 1/9 Meeting Holly, Travis and Margo for the first time!
