Hot, hot, hot!

We're in the middle of a heat advisory and our AC broke. The repairman is supposed to come out later today to look at it. Until then, it's hot, hot, hot in this house.

At around 2 months, Estelle managed to roll from her tummy to her back a few times, although probably not intentionally. Now, at 12 weeks, she's beginning to actually work at it and can roll from tummy to back and back to tummy. Yesterday she spent twenty minutes just going back and forth.

Almost 3 months.

Things have been going pretty well for us so far. Estelle has been the most talkative little thing, babbling all the time. She's always smiling and cooing at people.

Her neck has gotten considerably stronger, so she's now able to hold her head steady when in the sitting up position. She likes to practice sitting up in her boppy. It's cute. I don't think it'll be long before she'll be able to sit up on her own.

We've also found that when we hold her with her feet on the ground, she mimics walking by lifting and steping forward with one leg at a time. It's cute because she doesn't just lift the leg a little... she pulls it all the way up to her chest before stepping forward. Very cute.

TJ has found that, if he stands Estelle up on his lap, he can let her go and she'll support her own weight for a couple seconds.

At nighttime Estelle is still getting up every 2-3 hours. Occassionally giving me 4 or 5, but not often. Her daytime naps seem to be getting shorter too and she fights sleep. It's a chore getting her to take a nap at times, but at least she's taking naps in her crib or playpen now... instead of the middle of my bed. We'll have to work on the sleep thing a little more.


Estelle's hair has been growing nicely. She is no longer completely bald and now has a nice covering of thin dirty-blonde hair. I, on the other hand, have been loosing my hair. Literally, handfuls. I've heard this happens after pregnancy. If I keep loosing hair at the rate I am, I'll be bald in no time! Aaaaahhhh.
