Lily - 3 months

three months

Likes: looking at faces, being held, kicking, a bouncer (vibration), diaper changes, baths, sucking on her fists, singing, white noise, the wrap (front carrier)
Dislikes: being cold, being hot, a wet or dirty diaper, toys blocking her view, getting dressed, the carseat, swimming/cool water
Milestones: first vacation (first flight, first long drive, first stay away from home), to Maui; grasping a toy (on Christmas)

Lily is our Mellow Miss; she is smiley and happy and fairly adaptable.  She puts up with a lot of noise and commotion from her big sibs (and a lot of abuse, from Max anyway).  She travelled really well on our trip to Hawaii, nursing and sleeping during takeoff, and only crying for about an hour total of about 11 hours of flying.  She napped both ways to and from Vegas, and slept in the resort better than she does at home.  She did not like the heat, crying the most when we visited Lahaina (Lahaina means "cruel sun"), or swimming, crying when her toes touched the water both at the beach and in the pool.  So she mostly napped under an umbrella when we swam. 

Her favorite thing is looking at faces, and she'll get frustrated if we hang toys blocking her view of a face.  She smiles at everyone, including strangers and even Max, who quite frequently rewards her smile with a smack on the head or a pinch on the arm.  And because she is staying awake for longer periods we are having fun "playing" with her more and including her more in family activities. 

Can you tell which of these babies is Lily and which is Katie?

I knew that Lily and Katie were starting to look alike, but holy cow! Their likeness is amazing! I am pretty sure I can tell which is which, but I'm not willing to bet on it. Is Lily on the left?

She is so adorable!! I'm glad she behaved well on your trip. In later years, she will probably complain to you that she was too young to remember Maui and that you need to take her back. ;) (Happened in my family.)

She's growing up fast!

Oh my gosh, Lily looks exactly like Katie! Wow! I'm guessing Lily is on the left.

You're right! Lily is on the left!
