Corrin: {Three Months}


Alternate Title: Corrin: Thirteen Weeks

At three months, Corrin...

... weighs approximately 13 pounds, according to our home scale.

... wears size 1 diapers.  She can now fit into 3-6 month clothes, but still wears 0-3 month mostly.

... loves Micah.  When he steps into her line of sight, she immediately focuses on him.  She smiles and coos at him all the time.


... is still almost exclusively breastfed.  I say almost exclusively, because on some days, she eats more than I have pumped the day before.  It is especially hard when she is going through a growth spurt.  So on those days, she gets between two and four ounces of formula.

... dislikes formula.  She will only take formula if breastmilk is not available.  If she know I am home, she refuses the bottle.  She knows what she wants, and isn't afraid to let us know.

... does well sleeping at night.  Some nights, she will sleep "through the night."  That means, she sleeps up to six hours straight. I love those nights.  There are also nights that she wakes up several times to eat, or because she has gas.  Those nights are not so fun.


... is still working to overcome eczema.  Mikey and I keep her skin moisturized throughout the day.  We are using Aquaphor, and it works very well for her skin, but you can still see that she has eczema.

... will now stay in her carseat without screaming her head off.  At least for a little while.  She also will sit in her swing for longer periods of time.

... is now more accepting of diaper changes and baths.  She still doesn't like anyone touching her hair or cleaning her nose. 

... pulls her hair.  It may be the eczema, because the cradle cap is gone.

... is called Rin, Little Miss, Sissy, Baby Girl, and Possum.
