Lyla Mae, 3 months old

Our sweet little girl, 1/4 of a year old already!! So, what's new, you ask? Well, she's continuing to spend more time awake during the day, but amazingly, she's still a solid little sleeper at night.  She's very active - she loves to play on her Gymini mat, and she scoots off the mat or turns herself all the way around when she's down there for a few minutes.  She's also getting very good at grasping toys, and she seems to decide which one she wants and then moves towards it until she can reach it.  No rolling yet, but she gets onto her side by using her legs as a lever, so it probably won't be too long.  I have no idea how much she weighs, but she's got several rolls (something we never experienced with Timothy!) and she's a champion nurser, so I'm sure it's a lot. ;)

She's also vocalizing a lot more.  She still does her sweet little owl baby sounds, but is also doing some funny gurgling sounds, a little bit of yelling, and she's also starting to laugh!  I found a ticklish spot on her a couple of days ago, and I've been enjoying making her laugh.  She's also mimicking us a lot more - she'll shake her head "no" if we do it to her, and she will also imitate sounds as if we were conversing. She's also starting to blow spit bubbles, but I'm not sure if that's on purpose yet.

All in all, she's the sweetest, happiest little baby I've ever met.  I can't believe we ever thought Timothy was a mellow kid - compared to Lyla, he was a whirling dervish from the get-go! :)
