Jamie turned 3 months old on December 26 while we were in Illinois, so this is a little late…
Our little munchkin has grown SO much in the last month! At 10 1/2 weeks she started doing belly laughs while on the changing table! I was the only one to hear it though, and it wasn’t until 12 1/2 weeks that Matt heard her.
By 13 weeks, Jamie has started trying to roll over. While on her back she will get as far as her side! It’s just a matter of time before she gets all the way over.
Jamie’s new nickname right now is Drools Magee. She’s quite the slobber monster, and if your lucky you’ll get a nice face full of slobber on your mouth while kissing those scrumptious chubby cheeks of hers.
The last week while we were in Illinois Jamie really started developing her motor skills! She loves to play with her toys now, which is a big change from the last few months. When you put her in the swing, she’ll play with the toys and distract herself for a good 20-30 minutes! While on her activity mat, she’ll grab at the toys that are hanging down. It’s so funny to see her play now.
Jamie’s favorite game is when you put her in the bathroom sink and say, “Jamie’s in the sink!” It’s sure to make her laugh about 90% of the time. She loves to look at herself in the mirror.
She’s also started to notice the cats. If they come over and sniff her while she’s in her lamb seat, she’ll stop what she’s doing and check them out. She’s even reached out and tried to touch Boo. They are so good to her and always come right over if she starts crying. They are very curious of her, so I kind of feel bad that it will prob be only a good 3 months or so before she starts pulling their ears and tail (singular cause Boo only has a little snubby tail to pull).
Jamie is so strong now, too! She’s trying so hard to sit up! Sometimes I’ll see her try to push herself out of the car seat or swing so she can sit more upright. Her Bumbo is one of her favorite places to hang out during the day. I’ll put her in there with her favorite pink elephant with chewy hands and feet. It’s one of her favorite past times.
Reading is a fun thing we like to do with Jamie these days. I think she’s very interested in a couple of her books. She has a Silly Dino book that makes a cute dinosaur roar when you pull a leaf hanging from its mouth. She even tries to pull it herself. She also loves a Little Lamb book we have that has a lamb finger puppet in it. I swear she listens and is interested in them!
Jamie is such a happy and smiley baby. We love her so much and I can’t wait to see what else she accomplishes in the next month!
***Updated to add that Jamie has been wearing 3-6 month clothes since she was 12 weeks old. She can even fit in some of her 6 month jumpers!! What a little chunkster she is!***
