I can't believe my precious little baby girl just turned 3 months on May 25, 2010! She is growing so fast. I know it's been a while since I've updated everyone, so it's time to catch everyone up on the last two months! I went back to work, which is the main reason I haven't really taken the time to post on our blog. While it was good to see my co-works and students, it was very hard to leave her everyday. I missed her so much! I'm so excited to be off during this summer with her. She is getting to be so fun! She's definitely developing a sweet and fun little personality.
At two months old, I took Susannah Grace to the doctor for her check up and she weighed 13 lbs 12 oz (97 percentile) and measured 22 1/4 inches (50ish percentile). This month, I took her for her 3 months (14 weeks) exam (since we are putting her on the alternative vaccination plan) and she weighed 16 lbs and measured 24 1/2 inches. She is currently in the 99 percentile for weight and the 83 percentile for height. Needless to say, I'm just glad she was on the chart! Haha! She has just grown like a little weed! I have listed some things she's doing below so that I can remember this time in her sweet little life in the future:
*Sleeping through the night-started at about 10 weeks (7-9 1/2 hours)
*She's taking some great naps too (about 4-5)! They usually last 1-2 1/2 hours.
*Eating 5.5-6 oz every 3-31/2 hours
*Smiling and giggling lots!
*Cooing and gurgling bunches! Sometimes, she's so loud it seems like she is saying something really important!
*Sitting in her bouncy seat while talking to people
*Being loved on and cuddled with while she's awake
*Mommy reading books to her
*Daddy getting some neck sugar- lots of XOXO
*Playing in her exercauser (we just started this)
*Sitting in the Bumbo
*Looking in the mirror on the changing table
*Watching Baby Einstein and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (We only let her do this a little, mainly when she is doing her physical therapy. She will turn to the right side for 10 minutes or so! Works like a charm!) :)
*When mommy or daddy takes the bottle out of her mouth to burp her- it's like we're never going to give it back! Ha!
*Getting Hot- she really gets ticked off!
*Getting shots at the doctor's office :( (I hate it too!)

She also experienced her first road trip and wedding.
Here she is with my cousins, Edna(left) and Elizabeth (right).
She spent time with her Great Uncles too!
I also experienced my first Mother's Day.
It was extra special because we dedicated her to the Lord that day.
She was a sweet sleeping angel!
Here she is with Brother Ryan!
