Julia was 12 weeks (3 months) old today. She is a very happy baby and we are so happy to be blessed with another happy child. She loves to sit on your lap and watch your face and interacts (talks and smiles) with you. Julia has discovered her voice and at times becomes loud. We have noticed that she wants to sit up when you are holding her so she can see what is happening. If you lay her down she lets you know she wants up.
Julia also loves to stand up while you hold her hands. She gets the biggest smile on her face when she stands up. I think she might soon be ready for the jumper that can be attached to the frame between our dining and living room. I’ll wait a few more weeks. I can just see it now: Delton goes over to Julia and pulls her down and she shoots straight up in the air bouncing all over the place like a super ball. It probably would look like a scene from a cartoon.
Julia slept from 10 pm last night until 7 am this morning. She got up and nursed and went back to sleep until 10 am. We placed her in bed around 8:30 tonight. We are trying to get her on a bedtime schedule – don’t know if it will work. We also are starting to have her put herself to sleep. She only fussed for about 7 minutes tonight and went to sleep. If she gets the night thing down, I only need to worry about the morning and afternoon naps (no indication of a schedule starting there!).
