Sweet P - 3 months old!

Piper is three months old! We have had a very busy month and things don't look to be slowing down anytime soon! The good news is that this bundle of joy LOVES to sleep all night! On average she sleeps 8-10 hours EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT! I can count on less than two hands the number of times she has woken up to nurse in the middle of the night since birth!
I weighed Piper fully clothed (onesie and a diaper) she is 18 lbs and 6 oz.  She is 25.5" long so according to the growth chart she is 99% for both length and weight. Piper can roll over from her front, roll to her side from her back, and sort of crawl across the floor on her belly. She tries to sit up from her car seat (like mini crunches). She is quite the chatterbox lately and loves to sing along with her big sister, but clams up as soon as she sees the camera filming her. Despite her size, Piper can really move and get around. She is very healthy, but also very strong! Most people think that she is older than she is, usually around six months.

On the 5th of July, we went to Charleston for a week and stayed on Folly Beach. Piper did a lot of sleeping and being cuddled by my parents and sister. After we left the beach, we headed to Pennsylvania for a Beeman Family reunion. It was quite the contrast to go from low altitude at the beach to the mountains of Pennsylvania. I think it bothered me more than her.

First chair lift ride for BOTH girls at Seven Springs Resort in Pennsylvania.

Piper starts school on the 11th and while i am a bit sad, I know that she will grow leaps and bounds just as her sister did.

Piper is a big baby and we often get comments that she looks like a little baby doll. Her size is definitely not slowing her down! She smiles all the time and is such a happy baby which is a great contrast from her sister who was quite a serious baby. Piper has been smiling regularly around 6 weeks and started laughing around 9 weeks. She is also starting to cut her first tooth on the lower right.

Around 2.5 months Piper started using her exersaucer.  She is so strong!

Piper is wearing 9-12 month clothing. Some of her 6 month onesies fit, but not for much longer as they are really tight.

Piper loves sleeping on her tummy. Sucking her thumb. Watching the ceiling fan. Watching big sister do anything. Talking to daddy. Bath time. Sleeping. And eating.

We might have an early mover on our hands, but only time will tell!

People (everyone) says piper looks just like her daddy. Sloan did as a baby too. But who am I to  complain. He sure does make pretty girls!
