It's been 13 weeks since Harper was born, and god GOD has it gone quickly. It feels like I only had her yesterday... Well, time-wise at least - I don't still feel like I've been hit by a bus (thank heavens for small mercies). It's amazing how much she's changed since then though, because 13 weeks (3 months tomorrow in fact) really isn't that much time in the grand scheme of things.
In that time Harper has gone from being a tiny baby who pretty much cried, slept, ate and pooped, to a bigger baby who does all that still, but smiles, 'chats', grumbles, looks for her mummy and daddy and tries her damned hardest to roll back onto her back when she rolls on to her front (and then gets cross when she can't). She also tries to grab things now and very rarely misses - showing that she already has better hand-eye coordination than her clumsy mother.
Looking at her comparison pictures through the weeks is amazing, I can't believe how much she's grown and changed, it makes you realise that she's not going to look the same from one week to the next and as the days go by she is learning, growing and changing all the time. I've been meaning to put them all side-by-side for a few weeks, and now that I have it's hit me like a ton of bricks how much she's grown since day one, and though you don't see it in the pictures really, she's getting a little personality too. It's the best thing in the world to wake up to a cheeky smiling baby first thing in the morning, not so much when she realises that she's positively starving and starts screaming at you for her bottle!
At this point, we have a sort of routine established, but obviously her napping schedule is now a little unpredictable still, more-so now that she sleeps through the night. Sometimes she has sleepy days, other times she does. Not. Sleep. All. Day. Those are long days. Very, very long days because it's usually accompanied by a lot of whining because she's tired. She's so nosey though, that it sometimes gets the better of her, so much to look at, she couldn't possibly sleep!
Her 13 week picture and her 3 month picture are very similar this month, and that would be because I took them both today on account of her injections being tomorrow - she was poorly last week. So the 3 month picture will be posted at some point this week, it all just depends on how my little gets on with her vaccinations this time because she didn't like them at all last time (and neither did I!) In my next update I will be reviewing a beautiful handmade candle made by Kayleigh at Wyatt's Little Cavern, I've provided the link for you to go and check out in the meantime!
