One good thing about her getting bigger is hitting milestones, like her 3-month mark and other milestones. She can now roll over from front-to-back and back-to-front, so that means no more swaddling. She's now a sleep sack girl, and she's loving it! She can also stand up when supported and loves to stretch and stiffen her legs. She loves to smile and giggle, and has discovered the wonders of TV (not that she watches much at this point). Avery still eats really inconsistently, but is gaining weight well. She's now 13 lbs, 9 oz and 25.5" long. I love my growing girl!
For babies, getting pictures taken every few months or so it a rite of passage. Avery's 3 month pictures were taken about a week ago, including some of her donning red and silver for the holidays. She was so adorable, but we had several meltdowns to work through. She was cranky, then hungry, then cranky again. Good times. In the end, the pictures turned out very, very cute, and Hubs and I were proud that we only had one little stress-induced spat.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures...
That little giraffe outfit was a gift from my sister at my baby shower, and everyone in the studio that day went nuts over how adorable they thought she was in it. Then she had a crazy, screaming baby tantrum, which was fixed by a bottle. The picture above was taken right after she realized that she didn't have to freak out anymore. Hence, the scowl.
The rest are just too precious for words. At least to me, the proud, very biased mom.
My only beef with the pictures was that they didn't have ANY Christmas props available, as they were being used by other families in the studio. Grrrr... I'd have killed for Avery to be in a little Christmas basket or hanging out underneath a Christmas tree... but I digress.
Here's to many more family holiday pictures in December!
