3 months of Charlotte Mae

Well, we are officially out of the newborn stage with Baby Number 2 which makes me sad/happy all at the same time. Having Hayden makes me look forward to all the things that Charlotte will be able to do as she grows older. However, I do so love the teeny tiny newborn stage. 
Anyway, Little Charlotte is making big strides! She is great at holding her head up now and loves to be held in a sitting position so that she can observe her surroundings. She had her first laugh on Monday and has been so happy to share her smiles with us. She enjoys rattles and toys that she can grab and is still a big fan of her Mamaroo. She's also very content to sit in her rocker while I get ready in the morning. 
She has been on reflux meds + I have been on a dairy-free diet for over a month now and I can say that the combination has been helping her mood. She is not so fussy these days (except for the hours of 5pm - 7pm) and she seems to be more interested in feeding. We go back to the doctor next week for a weigh-in and check-up so I'm hoping she's put on some more weight this month.
Charlotte has been wearing some newborn clothes and some 0-3 month clothes which are still a little big. She has a vast collection of headbands to coordinate with all her outfits ;)
Previously, she did not tolerate other people holding her for long, but Daddy is now a solid second-favorite person in her book and she loves to watch her wild big brother too. She still hate, hate, hates the car and usually screams for most of our car rides. Needless to say, we choose our trips out of the house more carefully these days! 
Charlotte continues her good sleeping trend and sleeps in 7 - 10 hour stretches at night and takes 3+ naps in her crib a day (when we aren't out and about). She is easy to put down, loves being swaddled, and already a champ at going to sleep on her own.
We love this little one and can't imagine our family without her and her big smiles and chubby cheeks!
