3 Months

My sweet little Piper you are now 3 months old.  You are changing so quickly.  Daddy and I are learning more about your personality everyday.  You are an observer and have a very serious side to you.  You make Mommy and Daddy work very hard for a smile or coo, but when you deliver all the silliness was well worth it.  Daddy and I finally have a routine that seems to work well.  In the morning I get you ready for daycare and Daddy takes you to Cindy's (Mommy always calls Daddy to check and see how drop off went).  After you leave for daycare Mommy gets ready for the day and heads to work.  Around 10:30 I call Cindy to check on you and again in late afternoon.  Cindy is great with you and keeps Mommy very informed about your day.  After work I head to daycare to pick you up.  I usually chat with Cindy for a bit and then we head home to walk Max.  You hang out in your swing while Mommy makes dinner and we chat and sing songs, then Daddy comes home.  After dinner we all go for a walk and then you and I head upstairs for your bedtime feeding, book reading, & rocking.  The evenings seems to go by so quickly.  I try to spend as much time with you as possible and save my to do list until you go to bed.   Daddy and I are enjoying watching you grow and change. We are blessed to have you as our daughter!
Weight: 11.9 lbs - 50% percentile
Length 23.35 inches - 50% percentile
Size: You are wearing 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers
Feeding Schedule: You like to nurse every 2.5-3 hours.  At daycare you are still struggling with the bottle.  You prefer your milk straight from the tap.      
Sleeping Schedule: We usually go upstairs between 7:00pm-7:30pm and you nurse while we rock.   You still wake up 2-3 times each night to eat.
Likes: You still love to be swaddled, baths, being rocked, going for walks, your soft pink bunny, Soothie pacifiers, watching Max run around, and sitting up.
Dislikes: Tummy time, Max barking, and loud noises.   
Events: This month you went to your first college soccer game IU vs Mexico.  We all enjoyed the Fort Wayne Air Show.  We celebrated Alivia's 9th birthday at the park with the whole Sparks family.  We went to a Labor Day cookout at the Harkless house and you started Mommy and Me music classes!
