Three Months Old
This month was all about getting into a rhythm with Eleanor. While there is no such thing as a schedule in our house, a routine can be expected. In the morning she wakes up and nurses first thing. This used to happen around 8am, but lately it is more like 7. Then we change her diaper and pick out her outfit for the day. I love dressing her up. I am not sure I have ever put her in the same combination of clothes more than once. She certainly has enough outfits, and they are fun to play around with. Her latest thing is to play with her skirts or dresses. She grabs onto the skirt and just swings it about. So cute!
Of course every day is different. Some days we play with friends at the library, others she hangs out in Childwatch at the gym, and still others we go to bible study or even stay home. Regardless of where we are, her routine can be expected to pretty much stay the same. I like it.
In addition to her regular babysitter, I also take Eleanor to childcare at our gym as well as the church during bible study. Honestly, I have no problem leaving her for a few hours while I catch some "me-time." She typically sleeps while I'm not around so I really don't feel like she is missing me at all. And even when she is awake, I know she is in good and loving hands. Her caretakers always comment on how sweet she is. Sweet is really the one word I could constantly use to describe her.
This month has been so much fun to watch her personality bloom. However, I know that we have a lot more fun ahead of us. I am told that months four through six are really amazing to watch them grow, change and learn. I love being Eleanor's momma, and I love watching her develop. I can't wait for more!
