Little Leah is already 3 months old. Where the heck is all the time going? She's growing so fast. Stats from 2 month appointment:
She jumped from 30th percentile to 75th percentile. She's got such chubby cheeks, I love it! She's getting heavy to carry around, too.
I don't write as much as I'd like to, or take enough pictures. Heck, in this picture, she's actually 3 months and 2 days, but I figure that's close enough to 3 months.
My parents will be visiting soon. My mom has seen her once since she was born, and my dad hasn't seen her since she was born. They're pretty excited.
She learned to laugh yesterday! She's sort of cooed when you tickled her for awhile. However, last night she laughed the most adorable laugh! It's a bit of a giggle/shriek. I am so in love. Also, we're pretty sure she has a dimple. :)
She's also started grabbing my hair recently. Uh oh! It might be enough to get me to cut my long hair short. Maybe. I do love having long hair. When I was younger, my mother always made me have short hair, so when I started being able to decide for myself, I decided to grow it much longer.
Breastfeeding is going well, I think. I've been at work for over a month and a half, and have pumped enough for her so far. In fact, we purchased a freezer recently to keep the stash. Otherwise, we were going to have to start throwing stuff out. I know that my supply could eventually dry up, so when we found a good deal, we jumped on it. Strangely enough, I like pumping at work, as it really breaks up the work day. Also, I love returning home and nursing her right away.
Last night, I was looking through pictures from Leah's birth, and I have to admit: I don't remember ever looking so pregnant. I always expected to get a lot bigger than I did, so I guess that's why I never noticed.
While looking at this picture, I missed pregnancy. I think about it more than I want to admit. And I can't wait to give our darling little girl a sibling or two. I've only known her for three months, but I bet she'd be a fantastic older sister. I'm torn. Part of me wants to give her a sibling close in age, while another part just wants time to enjoy her.
