3 months

Please excuse my lack of posts. 
Dave, Georgia and I made our way back to the US, as Dave had a "work trip" and Georgia was able to visit grandparents and friends.  We are back on the correct side of the pond, catching up on life and laundry. 

I have some posts started, so hopefully over the next few days, I will be able to update this thing! 

Moving on....

We now have a 3-month old living in our house! Crazy!! Its amazing how quickly time flies. 


Weight: 13 lbs, 5 oz
Height: tall... growing out of clothes lengthwise.
Clothes: 3-6, some 6 month ones, as well
Diapers: size 3 (in the US, size 2)



Development:
Georgia can lift her head while on her tummy very well. She has great head support, and control over her head while we are holding her. She is able to grab things around her, her favorite being Aden and Anais blankets. They are soft and thin, and taste very good (I assume - they are always in her mouth)! She is just beginning to notice toys. She likes playing with Sophie the giraffe (its a teether that squeaks). Also, moms hands are one of the best toys ever created. Everything is beginning to go into her mouth.



Social
Georgia loves attention. I think she has the gift of WOO (winning other over) like her father, and is probably an extravert. She has trouble sleeping when we're out and about because she is so excited to see where we are and who is there. She loves smiling with her whole body, which is so much fun. She is quite a talker, and seems to have a lot to say.


Feeding/Sleeping
Because of our trip to the States, this is still unknown. With the jet lag, I'm not sure what is normal for her right now. She has been eating every 3 hours, night and day, so I am hoping that once we get into a more settled routine I can get more than 2-3 hours of sleep (at a time) at night. She has been sleeping extremely well. I've learned that she should only be awake for 45 minutes to an hour. (occasionally more). When she starts staring and slowing down, I swaddle her, turn on the sound machine, and into bed she goes. As long as I do this before she gets too tired, she goes to sleep without fussing at all! Its amazing! So, she takes 4- 5 short (45 minutes or so) naps a day. At night, she seems to need about 13 hours of sleep (minus getting up to eat). 

Activity
Georgia is a very active girl. While laying on her back, she enjoys kicking her legs in the air. She grabs anything thats within her reach. She loves to stand while we are holding her. She doesn't like being held in towards my body... but instead wants to be held facing outwards so that she can see the world. She loves to sit up on my lap. She seems to want to move, so I expect she will be frustrated until she can crawl or walk.

Isabella slept like Georgia did. A bunch of 45 minute naps. Its one of those things that's hard to explain to people without kids when you know you have to get them to sleep (or deal with the aftermath of crankiness.) It was great that you guys got to come back and visit. Georgia is sooo cute.
