It seems like Abbie hit the 3 month mark and she started changing by leaps and bounds. Here are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
~She's found her hands. She'll clench them really tightly and hold them up and look at them for a while. And she's started sticking them in her mouth.
~She can hold her head up for quite a while now, and isn't half as wobbly as she used to be. She now likes her bumbo and can sit in it for more than a minute at a time.
~She'll giggle when you tickle her. It's the cutest thing ever. And you can grin at her from across the room and she'll grin back.
~She'll bear weight on her feet now. Before I'd hold her up and she wouldn't put any weight on her feet, but now she'll "stand" up for sometimes as much as 10 seconds before her knees buckle.
~She puts things in her mouth on her own now. Any toy she can get up there, she ends up sucking/chewing on it.
~She rolled over again by herself yesterday. Mark had just gotten home from work and she had her arm in position and was trying to get the bottom half of her over and she rolled from her front to her back about a minute after he got home. I'm so glad he was there to see it.
~She "talks" a lot now. She'll make a whole bunch of different sounds too and sometimes she squeals if she gets really excited.
~She kicks her legs when she gets really excited - like REALLY kicks her legs.
~When Mark feeds her a bottle she'll wrap her arms around his hands and the bottle to make sure he doesn't take it away. Kinda funny. She's a little piglet.
~Two nights ago I stopped swaddling her when she slept and she seems to be doing really well with that.
Sitting in her bumbo
In her bumbo with her new Krinklz Baby toy - she loves that thing
Our little Mozart
Grinning at daddy
She's a lot of fun at this age
Hopefully she'll play the piano like we do.

Her with her lamb. I don't think the kid can get any cuter.
She's a lot of fun now. We're still having sleep issues, but I won't bore you with all those details. I do think I've read about every book on the subject though and it's amazing all the opposing viewpoints. I'm trying to pick and choose what I think is best for us and Abbie and I will say, last night she stayed in her crib from like 10:30pm to almost 5:30am. She was up once around 3am but by the time I got in to her, she was asleep again. Hopefully this is the start of something good!
