Olivia is 3 months old!

Today my baby girl is three months old. This past month has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride. The poor girl has been through a lot. I think that it is safe to say now that she is quite the little trooper. I am so proud of her! She is doing so well.

When I posted her two-month post I had no clue what month 3 would have in store for her. Hopefully things will only be on the up-and-up from here on out!

Olivia weighs 9 lbs. 10 oz. now. She measures in the “less than 5th percentile” bracket…so we will be trying hard to put some weight on during this next month. She is already eating better since her surgery…so I am hopeful that we will be able to do that.

She wears a size 1 diaper.

Wearing a size 0-3 month. Her size 3 month outfits are still a bit too big.

She is eating about 3 oz. every 3-4 hours. Hoping to increase that now.

She sleeps from about 10p.m. to 4:30 a.m., wakes quick to eat, and then sleeps again from 4:40-8:30.

She started daycare, but only made it for 3 days or so until we had to pull her out for her surgery. The days that she was there were great. Her teachers said that she never made a peep!

Her hair is getting a bit lighter, and she is losing a patch in the back where she is rubbing it off.

She smiles ALL of the time. Her eyes light up when she smiles.

She loves to lay under her Baby Einstein play gym and look at the lights and colors.

She is SUCH a joy, and we are so lucky to have her!

Please forgive the jammies today...we are still in post-surgery mode:



A little IV poke mark is the only trace of surgery from the outside...
