Milestones between months 0-3

3 Days Old

 3 weeks old

 1 Month Old

 2 Months Old


 3 Month Old



You can see how Reggie grows and changes so fast!

Here are some of her milestones from day 1 to 3 months old.

  •  At 1 1/2 months, Reggie went from Newborn to Size 1 diapers
  • At 2 months, she started transitioning into 0-3 month clothing
  • She would attempt to mimic sounds
  • We think she started officially smiling at us at around 2 months.
  • She started sleeping in her crib just before she turned 1 month old. She started out in a bassinet in our room but she like it much. She didn't sleep good which meant that we didn't sleep. She started sleeping a lot better when she was in her crib and would get up 1-2 times a night.
  • When she was 2 1/2 months, she was usually sleeping through the night. If she woke up, it was usually only once and if she had taken a long nap(s) during the day which had put a big space in between feedings.
  • Between 2 and 3 months is when she started grabbing at things and kind of figuring out that she has hands :)
  • She loves the water and taking baths.
  • Her neck started getting really strong around 1 to 1 1/2 months old. She tough all around and thinks she's a big girl and can do anything.
  • She follows us around the room very well.
  • She raises her eyebrows and it's SO cute!!
There are probably a lot more that I can't think of at the moment because I want to post this but if I think of more, I'll be sure to add them to the list! :)

Reggie's First Halloween

 Our Beautiful Snow White

This year for Halloween, we went to our Ward Trunk-or-Treat. We had a good time and there was a great turnout. We didn't have much time to decorate our "trunk" so I just used some of the house decorations to show our little Halloween spirit. For treats, we handed out Capri Suns because we figured it would be nice to give the kids a drink to wash down their candy plus Walmart was selling them for an awesome deal! :)
They served lemonade, chili and hot dogs.  Yum, yum!

Reggie won Best Infant Halloween Costume. She was the cutest thing! It got kind of chilly after awhile but she was a good sport and hardly made a peep until she was hungry.

We also got one tiny pumpkin for her to paint. I helped her paint because she would've tried to eat the brush/paint. Everything goes to the mouth once it's in her hand. :)
We used the colors purple, pink and turquiose. Even though she had no idea what was going on, I sure enjoyed it! :)

We also went to the Dell Osso Family Farm. It's about 10 minutes from our house and they had fun activities to do to celebrate Halloween. We just mainly went to stroll around and see what the place was all about.

They had cannons that you could shoot little pumpkins at targets with which looked like a blast! Wish we would've had time to do that! They also had tons of other things that kids a little older than Reggie would've loved. Their gift shop has tons of Halloween and fall decorations as well as fudge, jams, jellies, etc. We left with a mini fudge cone and will hopefully be able to plan a trip their during their Christmas events.

Overall, we had a wonderful first Halloween with Reggie! She is the light of our lives and we love her so much!! Looking forward to her First Thanksgiving and First Christmas!

Here are the pictures!

Two month old Reggie

Reggie Brooke
2 Month Stats
Height: 23 1/2 inches.....90%
Weight: 11 pounds....51%
Head Circumference: 39 1/2.....60%
Our beautiful Reggie girl is already 2 months old!! She's almost 3 months now [I started this post over weeks ago but got a little busy and didn't get back to it]. She is such a fun happy baby! She spoils us big time. :) Knock on wood, I usually only have to get up once during the night and sometimes she sleeps through the night. She smiles and plays with us quite often. Well she plays with me a lot. When she goes to Rocky, it is usually to put her to sleep. She's figured that out so she's been crying whenever Rocky gets her. He's been trying to play with her more that way she won't think he's the Sandman. :)
We had pictures taken by Eric Gordon and I scheduled them for the day she turned 2 months old. I can't even wait to see the rest of the pictures and to get some of them framed and up in our home.
We really can't get over how cute and beautiful she is! She's got so much hair and it keeps getting longer. Hopefully that will continue. :) It's starting to get a good curl to it which is so cute! She's SO TALL!!! As you could see from her stats, she's in the 90th percentile for height. We can't tell that she's gaining weight because she's growing in inches and also because we're around her all the time.
She's been very alert from day one, just now it seems like she's able to focus better. She can hold her head up very well. She thinks she's so tough! Plus she's got some chubby cheeks so she's got one tough neck. :) It's amazing to see her ability to do things you wouldn't expect a two month old baby to do!  She's SO VERY CLOSE to laughing! She tries to mimic us sometimes, especially when Rocky does "wolf/howling" noises. It's so funny when she sticks her lips out to try to make the same sounds. The vacuum calms her down which is hilarious! I caught her rolling over for the first time on my phone. Rocky thinks it was a fluke because she was on the couch when she did it and because it isn't something that she's constantly working on. Either way, I have her first roll over on video! I'll post it later.

She also likes to be in the water and usually cries when we take her out of it. She doesn't really like getting dressed either. She'd be content to hang out in her diaper. It makes sense because our A/C wasn't working when she was first home so she'd hang out in her diaper majority of the day.
She drools like crazy! I think she's going to start teething soon...
She is usually very content and she's such a morning person it's hilarious! The time that she gets fussy is around nighttime when it's getting close to bedtime. She's not nearly as happy at night as she is in the mornings.
It's crazy how fast she's growing! It really is true that time flies especially when you have kids! I'm so thankful for her and the opportunity that I have to be her mother. I know that Rocky really enjoys her and being a dad. He's so great with her and it's fun to watch! :)

All-in-all, we love our Reggie Girl and wish time would slow down a little bit! :)

Time just flies!!

I'm so behind. Reggie is growing SO fast!! This post is just mainly for pictures. :) It's fun to look at them and see how much she's changed. It's sometimes hard to see the changes since I'm around her all the time. :)
