Katie is now sleeping through the night as of Monday night, I believe. She'll sleep about 8 or sometimes even 9 hours, usually from around 10 until 6 or 7, although we have yet to have a set routine for when she goes down. I am, as you might imagine, totally thrilled about getting to stay in bed through the night, although I don't get to bed right when she does, but I try to make it there within an hour of her going to sleep. So things are better on the sleep front.

Katie turned 3 months old on Friday, and she is getting to be a regular chubby-bubby. I noticed her chubbo-legs on Thursday...she is really starting to fill out. She is a very beautiful baby, with her dark hair and blue eyes. Her hair lightened up a little bit, but it is still very dark and seems to be staying that way for the time being.

Katie also had her 2 month appointment 2-3 weeks ago; I can't remember if I posted about it or not. She's in the 95th percentile for length at 24 1/2 inches and something like 50 percentile for weight at (I think) 12.5 lbs. She officially grew out of size 1 diapers about a week and a half ago; and the way I knew was that she kept being absolutely SOAKED on a regular basis, like through her diaper, clothes, and onto her bouncy seat, and I would've just changed her 1-2 hours before, which would've been fine in the past. She is just getting so big! She's at the stage where she's starting to notice her hands, and her thumb and fingers sometimes make it into her mouth. We may have a thumbsucker! We "talk" on a regular basis; I coo at her, and she just loves it. She smiles and coos right back at me. She is totally a people person and loves to make eye contact with people and be right in on the action. She and Jenna are starting to interact a little bit more these days. Katie will watch her sometimes.

Jenna is just growing by leaps and bounds, both mentally and physically. Her words are being modified, like she'll say Ga-ma for Grandma instead of Gaba, and just a few minutes ago pronounced her last name much better, saying Ah-lee instead of Ah-dee. Goldfish actually sounded like goldfish! She has gone pee-pee in the potty 3 times in the past couple of months, although we're not really concentrating on that, and she went a few hours ago, actually, and got her treat of goldfish. Potty training is just kind of something where we ask her if she wants to sit on the potty, and if not, it's fine, or sometimes she'll ask to sit on it.

Jenna's hair is getting a lot longer, and is FINALLY starting to grow in the front! The baby mullet is cute, but it's time to say goodbye to it. :) She has a rash all over her right now, and the doctor said last Monday that it looks a reaction to a virus (kids react with rashes and adults don't is what she said), and that it should go away within a week and a half. It seems to me that it got worse over last week, but Braden said just now that it looks better, so that's good. We've kept her home from church the past two weeks because we weren't sure if it was contagious or not. Anyway, I hope it clears up by the end of this week at least. She hasn't been scratching, so that's good, because if she does, it's not a virus, but something else.

That's it for now!

Thanks for this post! I love to know how your girls are growing. It has inspired me to make a post about my kids too. So stay tuned for that!

You're welcome! I've been meaning to post for a while now.

And oops, I meant that Katie has grown out of size 1 diapers, and is now in size 2.
