3 Months Old!

Baby girl turned 3 months old last week!  I can't believe our little one has been in our lives for a quarter of a year already.  This month was different than the first two since I'm back to work now. It's been an adjustment for all, but we're starting to figure out a routine.  I miss spending as much time with her and hubby.  I also miss not having to wash bottles every night!  When I first went back to work, baby girl had some nipple confusion, but fortunately since switching to Tommee Tippee bottles, her latch has been much improved.  With breastfeeding, I'm always, and I mean always, hungry!  I'm about 10 pounds away from pre-pregnancy weight and I'm starting to feel frumpy.  I mentioned this to my mom and I just have to save her response forever.  In my mom's words "Your body is making you eat to produce the milk for R2D2.  You are doing a great thing nourishing your daughter.  You can worry about those couple pounds when you are done nursing."  So, that's that.  I'm going to continue to try to make healthy choices, but I know I personally can't diet while breastfeeding.  I'm also going to try to make more time to work out, which has been difficult since going back to work.

R2D2 is back to sleeping longer periods of time again :)  She'll sleep for closer to five hours now.

We didn't have a doctor's appointment this month, so it's difficult to say exactly how much she weighs.  Using our home scale, I think she's just over 11 pounds now.  She's wearing size 3 months clothing now and size 1 diapers.  She's up to eating about 4.5 ounces every 3-4 hours during the day.  I've been fortunate enough to be making enough milk. 

Baby girl's eyes are still blue!  One of her favorite things now is looking at her mobile.  She doesn't mind being in her crib when looking her mobile, but we're still working on naps in the crib.

I'm sure there's more, but honestly, being a working mom is exhausting!
