Mila Rose, you are 3 months old! You are learning and growing more and more each day.
You started swimming lessons this month and you LOVE the water. At your first swimming lesson you floated on your back! You love your bath too and you are starting to splash all over the kitchen. You still cry when you get out of the tub, but it seems to be getting better...maybe. You used to scream bloody murder and now you just scream.
You are wearing size 1 diapers (probably not for long though) and 0-3 and 3 month clothes. I'm not sure what you weigh, but are are getting super chubby. Your rolly thighs are SO cute! Your nickname when your checks and neck look really chubby is Mila Chin.
Sleep is great! You sleep 10-12 hours at night. You are still sleeping in mom and dad's room because you do wake up and want your paci sometimes. Sometimes you wake up early for a little snack too, but you go right back to sleep after. You are swaddled really tight still. Your new trick is to start turning in circles while you sleep. The first time it happened I was so confused! I woke up and you had done a perfect 180 degree turn. I thought maybe daddy moved you. I'm still not exactly sure how you do it, but you start to move almost immediately after you go to sleep.
Napping during the day is a different story...you won't take a nap!!! You will only nap if someone is holding or wearing you. It is very hard for us to get work done during the day.
Mom and dad left you for the very first time. Grandma Tyler came over to watch you while we went to the Mat Kearney concert. You were a perfect little angel. The concert tickets were your Mother's Day gift to me. You are so thoughtful!
We took you to church for the first time. You loved the music and then slept on mom the entire time. When you were in Mommy's tummy you would dance when the music was playing all the time, so we are not surprised that you love the music.
We bought you the Baby Einstein Fish tank and that thing is magical. We put it on your play mat and you always give it the biggest smile as soon as we turn it on. You are getting better about entertaining yourself for a little bit. You are starting to really like your play mat as well as Elmo. We've tried the Bumbo a few times. You do ok, but I think you will like it more and more as you get older.
You are quite the talker. It is so sweet when you talk and coo. You also smile all the time. Melts our hearts!
You like to make funny fart noises with your mouth and sometimes make the motor boat fart noises when you are angry or hangry.
Grandma Menden and Auntie Leah came to visit for mom's birthday. You loved all the snuggles. We took you to Top Golf, the brewery, and the wine bar.
It has been super rainy in Texas (like record breaking rain), but we get outside and go for walks as much as possible. You love being outside.
May is the time of the year when there are a lot of sports happening at once. Sports like golf, tennis, baseball, basketball and hockey. You LOVE watching any sport, especially with your dad. You can go from angry and tired to content and happy watching sports. Sometimes when you are on the play mat you will completely turn yourself around to get a better view of the TV. Your favorite sport to watch is definitely hockey. The Minnesota Wild lost in the second round of the playoffs but you didn't miss much of the action.
We love to see you grow and it is incredible to see the growth in your motor skills every day. The only thing sad about seeing you progress and grow is how sad your mom gets that her little tiny sweet baby is growing up so fast.
We love you...cheers to another healthy month!
