Baby Elle Update | 3 Months Old

Post image for Baby Elle Update | 3 Months Old

Our sweet baby Elle turned 3 months old last week and I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around this fact. When people tell you that time flies by, they’re most definitely not kidding. She’s gone from an adorable newborn to a little human that’s full of personality, the cutest smiles and little giggles.

So much has changed over the past 3 months and every single one of those changes is for the better. Sure there’s less time for blogging, sleeping and doing my hair, but I’m so smitten with her, none of that matters. I’ll happily blog a little less, sleep for only about 5 hours, and rock a bun on a daily basis to spend just a little more time with Elle.

ElleCheeksRSWhen friends would say, “I can’t imagine my life before my baby,” I was never really able to grasp the statement. Sure having a baby changes so many things, but that statement becomes so profound once you hold your baby in your arms. At that moment, you truly can’t imagine your life any other way and that feeling only gets stronger with each passing day.

Since I haven’t shared any of her newborn photos here on MBA, I just had to post a few of them from the session we had with Rachel Marie Photography in Brunswick, Ohio. If you live the Ohio area, I can’t recommend her enough!

The Details

Elle weighs almost 14 pounds and is measuring 24.5 inches in length. She is currently wearing 0-3 month clothing; however, we’re thinking she’ll be transitioning into 3-6 months very soon since most of her pants are high waters.

She is super smiley and drooly – she’s known to soak a shirt sleeve in a matter of minutes!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that bath time is her absolute favorite time of day. She is in love with her daddy – her face lights up every time he talks to her in his Elmo voice! She adores listening to Rockabye Baby on Pandora and watching Golden Girls – just like her mama!

She’s been sleeping through the night since she was 5 weeks, so she’s pretty much the best baby ever.

She’s had several nicknames since birth, but only one stuck and that’s Bird, Birdie or Baby Bird.

To see more of Elle, be sure to follow us on Instagram!

Oh that darling girl. It only gets better!! I find it kind of hilarious that both our girls have bird nicknames…”Birdie” and “Goose” will get along just fine :)

So adorable! Yes, time does fly! My middle kid just turned 40 a few days ago. I love all three kids and five grandchildren! They keep life interesting and wonderful every day! Enjoy!

My first little one, Connor, is about 10 days younger than Elle. He also loves bathtime, which is great because it keeps that oh-so-fun witching hour at bay for a bit. I can’t say I loved the first 7 to 8 weeks of being a mom, but Connor has steadily gotten more and more enjoyable and I’m looking forward to how much fun he’s going to be.

Elle is beautiful, I’m glad everything’s going so well for you guys.

Elle is the prettiest baby!!! She looks like she would feel like a soft, warm bundle. I think enjoying her joy to you and your hubby is the MOST important time!! You may need to remember that feeling later when she thinks she is a princess and doesn’t have to make her bed or put her clothes away. I never had any children, but do remembering babysitting and enjoying other peoples little delights. Thank you for sharing your sweet baby girl with us — I think we all really enjoyed hearing about her — and will look forward to hearing more about her!!! Thank you so much!!!!

Precious! My baby just turned 20 and time does fly. I can not believe how fast. My boss’ daughter was nicknamed Birdie too. At 1-1/2 my daughter was addicted and I mean addicted to the Golden Girls theme song. It would come on and her head would swivel towards the tv or she would come running from another room, so cute!!

Have a good day! Thanks for the update :)
