Three Months Old

Averie is three months old! Can you believe it? We are almost completely out of the Newborn Stage. Averie is doing so great and learning so quickly. I thought that I would be sad to watch her grow up, but I am actually excited to see her learn and grow. The past month has been a little more challenging than the first two months. After Averie got her shots, it was like she figured out how to cry. She never fussed or cried very often before she got her shots. There were a couple of weeks that I was overwhelmed. She wanted to be held constantly, which I don't mind at all, but it made showering and going to the bathroom difficult. She also had a week where she started waking up in the night again. I know, I know a week of waking up. I have been so spoiled with Averie. She has been sleeping through the night since she was a month old so I really don't know what it's like to be up all night with her. Well now things are back to normal with her. She is happy again and doing great. We just love her so much and can't get enough. Her are her unofficial stats that I did myself since there was no doctor appointment this month:Weight: 12 pounds 28th percentile
Height: 24 inches 58th percentile

Here are her latest:

She will imitate you when you stick your tongue out and do the spit rumble thing. Ha ha, I don't know how to describe it but you probably know what I am talking about. Thanks Grandpa Payne for teaching her that one.
She likes to suck on her top lip and smack her tongue.
She had her first pony tail.She likes to pull up her shirt. We need to teach her to be a lady.She likes to look at herself in the mirror.Her hands are always in her mouth and if she has a hold of anything, it will be in her mouth too.I have been told she has rolled over twice, but I haven't seen it so it doesn't count to me.
She has started laughing out loud. It is so adorable.
She can fully support her head and only wobbles once in a while now.Her vision is a lot better. I can tell because she will follow me even if I am all the way across the room.
She has the craziest hair EVER! Love it!
She is more aware of Sergeant and the two are becoming best friends.
I love this girl so much! We are so glad that we have had her these past three months!
