Nora just hit 3 months yesterday, and decided that that was the day to start a whole load of new fun things.
First, her new favorite thing to do is "talk". She just babbles using open mouth vowel sounds and plays with her voice. I love talking to her, because now she talks back! She also started really laughing yesterday, which is adorable because she laughs then takes in a huge breath of air, so each laugh ends with a little squeek.
In line with the talking and laughing, she's started something Jeff and I dubbed "fake crying". It's a lot like a cry noise except it's different, just a long, low "wuuuuuuuuuh" sound. It's funny because she'll do that a few times then coo and laugh.
She's also starting to try holding her own bottle. She can hold it up for a few moments at a time. She still lacks the motor skills to not shove the bottle away when she's not paying attention though.
I miss the days of having a little baby. My baby is big now, but not a big girl yet. DD likes to pretend she's nursing her dolls and Little People toys.
It was so funny the other night when I was playing baseball. My sister was watching DD at my game, and DD yelled out "Mama" then she put her Little People unicorn to my sister's breast and made suckling noises. She is so funny sometimes.
Iris started smiling at 5 weeks and now she has started "talking" as well. It's adorable - you can see her really working hard at making some sound come out and then there it is-sweet baby cooing! I love it!
