Wren Danielle 3 Months!! "I will only smile when my hands are
covering the sticker mom"
She is still loving her sleep. She still goes to bed around 10:00pm and then sleeps anywhere from 8:00am to 9:00am. She will fuss around and squeal when she is ready to get up in the morning but as soon as she sees me she is all smiles! I love how happy she is when she wakes up. After she is unswaddled she will stretch and stretch, seems like waking up in the morning could be her favorite part of the day!
Wren is getting to be a such a chubby little girl! She already fits in a few of her 6 month clothes!! I don't have her weight and height because we don't go back to the doctor until 4 months but she is catching up to both of her cousins! One is a 1 1/2 months older and the other is 1 year! (Her 1 year old cousin still fits in some 9 mo. clothes so she is very small for her age!) It is crazy to look back at pictures from even last months blog post because she seems so much bigger now.
Wren is becoming more and more interactive. She loves people talking to her and giving her attention. Sometimes all she wants is attention when she is fussing around. She has just started to notice toys and has been try grabbing for them! She will pull things to her mouth if she gets hold of them but I am not sure if she intentionally grabs them or if it is kind of by accident. She is learning though and we can see her really focus and try to figure out toys that are hanging in front of her.
She has been eating 5 ounces every 3 hours during the day and after going all night without eating she is always excited for her morning bottle and we can be sure there isn't going to be any left when she decides she is done!
We definitely have a girly girl on our hands as I said before she loves to squeal! Usually she will squeal to let us know she needs something or if she gets really angry and throws a fit she will squeal really loud!! She also has her happy squeals too! Recently she has been squealing loud and long to entertain herself! I think she likes the sound of her voice. We have discovered that going out in public with her is very different! She is no longer the silent little girl but instead squeals really loud getting everyone attention at a restaurant or store :) It makes her seem so old and I am realizing more and more my little baby is no longer a baby! She has also started to give us little laughs along with her coos. As I said at the beginning Wren is a very laid back little girl most of the time and has such a sweet personality. It is sad to see her leaving the newborn stage but fun to watch as she discovers new things and becomes more interactive with us!
THINGS WREN LOVES
Wren still LOVES her bath! I decided to lay her in the bathtub not in her little bath seat thing. It seems we may have a little swimmer on our hands!! She will kick, kick, kick and thrash her arms and legs making the water slosh around and then she would stop for a bit and then do it again! I have been giving her baths that way ever since and she loves it!
Another thing she loves is her changing table! She has been a fan of the changing table pretty much since she was born for some reason. Whenever we put her on the changing table to change her diaper she is all smiles and coos! Must be happy to get a fresh diaper :)
THINGS WREN HATES
Wren has become somewhat lazy and doesn't really have an interest in laying on her stomach much anymore! She will squeal and fuss until I move her! She is just too lazy to hold up her head and really work her muscles. We will have to work on that so she can learn to roll over pretty soon.

FUN THINGS WE DID THIS MONTH
We have had a busy month with Jesse in the field but Wren and I still had a little time for fun! We went to Rader's Family Farm with her cousins and picked out Wren's very first pumpkin. She didn't dress up for Halloween this year but she did wear her "cutest pumpkin in the patch" shirt. At Rader's she got to play in the corn. She was so alert and wanted to watch everything that was going on that day! She basically skipped a feeding because she was busy watching everything. I have noticed she will do this when we go somewhere that there is a lot of stimulation or things going on. She loves to just watch. It really makes it easy to take her places or go shopping etc.
