Grace - 3 Months Old

I can't believe I am posting this already! Little Grace is growing up so fast it is just blowing me away. It seems like only yesterday I was coming home from the hospital nervous about how I was going to look after a newborn and a toddler, and now here we are as a little family - Zoe, Grace and I. There have definitely been some tough times, but I think overall we are going really well. Luckily Zoe seems to understand that when mum needs to feed Grace she will need to occupy herself - so Zoe will quietly play, and when it comes to putting Grace to bed, the dreaded television is switched on to keep Zoe happy.

This month Grace has turned into a super sleeper - it is rather strange for me because when Zoe was this age she was waking roughly three times a night and only cat napping during the day. Grace on the other hand generally has two decent naps and will then sleep from 10-12 hours straight at night. I love her for this. Grace is still feeding well and is growing very well - sitting at just over 7 kilograms now, which makes her very, very, healthy. She is also starting to discover her hands and feet, an occasional suck of the thumb and lots of wonderous looks at her feet - it is ultra cute. We are also starting to get happy times during the day instead of the constant whinge she was doing earlier - so it is lovely to hear those goos and gahs, and to see those huge gummy smiles.

And now for a few pics of my little lady...

Looking particularly gorgeous on her play mat from Pop and Liz.

Having a snooze in the baby carrier on her first ever trip to the beach.

Giving Zoe's art work on the fridge lots of gummy smiles.

Enjoying a bit of play time - this is something new!

Can't wait to see what the next month will bring!

I can't help it! I'm at the age when adorable baby photos make me all clucky! She has amazing blue eyes like Zoe.

Oh she is just gorgeous! Love those gummy grins, and she is perfectly chubby! I had 2 chubby bubs around the same age, and they've turned out to be super active little toddlers (but I'm sure you know not to worry about any of that at this age!).

She is such a cutie! My third one was like that - a great sleeper - which is probably now why nothing wakes her at night :)

Awww shes such a cutie! You are so incredibly lucky that she sleeps so well overnight. Im so looking forward to having kiddies of my own sometime in the next few years :)
