3 months old... and 7 days without a poop.

That's right, little miss Linna decided to celebrate being 3 months old by freaking Mama and Papa out, and not doing a number 2 in 7 days! I called the pediatrician after 3 days, but they said it's completely normal for babies her age to go 4-7 days without a poop. Well day 7 came and so did a whole new definition to Linna's poopy diapers. Talk about an explosion! She seemed very pleased with herself though. And even though I was so tempted to do it, I did NOT take a photo of the beautiful gift:)

Linna also learned how to roll over! She goes from her front to her back. She has always hated tummy time, so I think this is just her way of getting out of it. She's already grown out of her 3-month clothes and has moved onto 3-6 month clothes. One day I had her in newborn pants, a 6 month onesie, and a 6-12 month skirt! Baby clothes sizes are so weird. Every morning, our little lady greets her mama with a big smile and it really is the best part of my day! She literally smiles from ear to ear. She wants to talk so bad, but all she says right now is "Ohhhhhh". Her mouth moves so fast like she's telling you something, but nothing comes out. It's pretty cute!

Baby Linna loves to read the book "Green Eggs and Ham"! I think she likes the bright and bold colors. I try to read the book to her every day, in hopes that she'll enjoy reading when she's older. For the last few nights Linna has slept 7-9 hour stretches at night, which has been such a blessing! We put her to bed when we go to bed, which is around 10:30 or 11pm, and she will sleep until 6 or 8am! She takes a few cat naps between 8-11pm. She eats about 5 ounces before bed, wakes up between 6-8am to eat, and then sleeps until 10 or 11am. I'm really liking this schedule because it allows me to get some stuff done in the morning before she wakes up. However, last night Miss Linna decided she wanted to go to bed at 1am, woke up at 5am, 7am, came in bed with mama, and slept until 10:30am. When she's a little older we'll start putting her to bed at 8pm, in hopes of her sleeping until 7am like a "normal" kid. But for now, this schedule is working for us and Linna.

Wearing newborn pants, a 6 month onesie,
and a 6 - 12 month skirt.
I'm still breastfeeding (pumping and bottle feeding) and hope to continue for a year, but man is it challenging! Pumping consumes my entire day, and I'm constantly thinking about it. I did get a brand new double electric breast pump today, and I'm so excited to use it! I've been using a single electric for the last 3 months. Also, I'll be making my first appearance on TWIN CITIES LIVE on November 29th as their Mommy-Blogger, showing some cool baby and mommy gadgets. Make sure your TV is set to channel 5 at 3pm!

Cheers to Linna being 3 months old!
