Ophelia's 3rd month

As I'm writing this I cannot believe that Ophelia is already 3 months old. I am gutted that the time seems to be passing so quickly. It just feels like a complete blur. This may be because my mind is occupied on both her and Eva or maybe it's because I'm enjoying myself so much.

Since Ophelia's 2nd month update there has been some big changes. She has cut not 1 but 2 teeth. It happened at 12 weeks old, the exact same time as her big sister. Funnily enough, it's also the same 2 front teeth that she cut.
She has coped so well with it. I knew it was coming because she had a couple of weeks of rosey red cheeks, excessive amounts of dribbling and some of the most explosive poops I've ever seen. Other than that she has been amazing.

As I'm still in Australia, I have no idea how much she weighs. I think my health visitor will have a breakdown when we get home after realising she hasn't been weighed every week. It's funny how relaxed I am about it all 2nd time around. I just look at her and know she is happy and healthy and that's all that matters.

She occasionally rolls on her side so I really can't leave her alone anywhere. She is not too bad at holding her head but I definitely need to give her more tummy time. I keep forgetting to do it. She loves to be in an upright position especially infront of your face.



I breastfeed her on demand and i'm really not bothered about getting her into a routine yet as what we're doing is working for us. She sleeps from about 10.30pm - 5am at the moment which is amazing.

She really is a very content, happy baby. She loves to focus on family members, give them a huge smile and then follows them wherever they go. She has really found her voice. Every morning when she wakes up, she talks for a solid half an hour.

I've noticed a big change in Eva's behaviour towards her. She's extremely loving and has become very helpful. If Ophelia is crying, Eva will try and comfort her. She's also become quite protective of her.



It's just over 3 weeks until we return home to the UK. Daddy finally joins us again next week for the end of our holiday. It will have been 7 weeks since we've seen him. I feel like he's missed out on so much. I can't believe Ophelia will be 4 months old when we return. It's all going too fast.

  7. What a beaut! Sound like she's doing so well. Amazing at sleeping! Lamb fed every 2 hours and then every 3, every 4 and so on until he first slept through around 5 months. I'm hoping baby number 2 sleeps better!! xx

  8. Oh she is so sweet! It's always such a relief when they finally cut those first teeth after showing signs of teething. Enjoy the rest of your time in Australia! xo

  11. Wow, two teeth already - mine were almost a year when they got theirs!! I think it is natural to be more relaxed with a second child - I think Sebby was weighed twice in a year #oops

  14. I was exactly the same second (and third, and fourth) time around. You tend to know what's what and are a lot more at ease with everything as a parent. Good luck with the teething!

  16. Oh my goodness. She has teeth already? Better to get it over with I say. It must make your heart swell seeing your two girls together. They are so adorable and it's beautiful that Eva is so loving xx

  18. Oh wow how fast is the time going by - I felt the same with my second and cannot believe he is one already! Wow both she and Eva cut teeth early (or mine where just late) - so excited to hear more about her updates
