I think that every month, every week, day, moment is my new favorite.
Autumn is getting more and more active each day. I just love it. She is super smiley and playful. She hasn’t mastered laughing yet but ‘cracks up’ silently. It’s so weird and awesome. She really likes when I sweep a blanket over her face saying “peek-a-boo!!” But she kinda hates tummy time but does really well when she is laying on our chests. I take it that she just likes to push up to look right at our faces instead of toys, although she does reach out and then suck on them, when she feels like it. Overall, she’s doing really well and we couldn’t be happier!
Here are some things that Price, Autumn, and I are currently crushing on…
Baby Favorites @ 3 months
I use this Baby K’tan carrier just about every day. I saw a review of it right after I found out I was pregnant and was immediately interested. So when the time came to try on carriers I knew I would have to test it out. When I was trying it on I looked for the fabric texture, weight, and how easy it was to get on and off, which is always a plus when you need to do it quickly solo or when the baby is asleep in it.
Autumn really likes to hang out in the Baby K’tan while I do dishes or make dinner. Or dance around to ‘Happy’ like a nut. When she’s not enjoying my sick dance moves she often is fast asleep in it. It’s made out of a soft fabric so it’s really cozy and comfortable for her to snuggle in against my body. There are all different ways to position the baby in it but since Autumn had been wearing her hip brace 24/7 (until recently- yay!) she was always in the Hug position. Looking forward to the Adventure position in the next few months!
So while I love the Baby K’tan, Price loves his ERGObaby carrier.
Autumn was a teeny thing at just 5lbs 9 oz at birth so Price was really excited when she inched her way up to 7lbs so she was big enough to get into the infant insert (babies need to be at least 8lbs for the K’tan). Since then he has used the ERGO all the time. She’s in there when she is fussy, needing to be close and snug, and being held isn’t cutting it. Or when she is in need of some extra attention and we have something to do that favors use of 2 hands, like when we are eating dinner. And now that the weather is getting warmer he been going out with her in the carrier while taking the dog out for a walk. The hood on there keeps her extra warm as well.
Autumn spent a lot of time in the car this past month as she has had quite a few Dr’s appointments and other much more fun adventures. She does really well in the car, except when mom forgets to take her hat off and it falls over her eyes resulting in a major meltdown, as she enjoys the rides. So I like to check out her happy smiles in this mirror. As well it’s always fun to check on how much of her hand is in her mouth… a thumb, some fingers, whole fist.
We have infant play gyms in both of these styles. Babies have so much stuff so I like these being that they are easy to fold up and store away when not in use. Plus they are soft and have fun toys for Autumn to play with. The toys can be easily detached from the gyms and be laid out on the mats so that they make tummy time more appealing as well.
