Juliet's hair began to thin a lot but the hair she still had got longer. It has stuck straight up since she was about two and a half months and I love that so much.
Juliet still loves breastfeeding more than anything and continued eating up to 12 times a day in month three. Since I was still off work I didn't mind at all, as I love it as much as she does and never knew it could the amazing bonding experience it has been for us. Juliet is a pretty good sleeper. Juliet is still in our bedroom, sleeping in the rock n play and sometimes (well, a lot of the time) she bedshares with us. I'm simply not ready to move her into her crib yet though I know it's something we need to do relatively soon (well, I don't really know if we need to or if I just keep hearing that we should). I love her in our bedroom and Erik doesn't mind it either.
In just a couple weeks Juliet will already be 4 months. Oh god, they really do get big so fast, just like everyone says. You can't imagine that your baby can literally change overnight. Juliet is such a sweet baby. She rarely cries and when fussy can always be comforted by breastfeeding. She is our cuddly little love-girl. She has many nicknames. Erik calls her his little girlie, his girly burly, the burly, the burly one, little grumbles, monkey butt, stinky, etc. I'm sure there are more. I call her girlie, sweetie, my sweetness and Jules. We like nicknames in our house.
Juliet and I had a wonderful last month of my maternity leave together. The weather couldn't have been better. We went for walks in the stroller and/or Moby daily. We hung out with my mom and niece Chloe every Tuesday. We slept in and snuggled on the couch a lot. Being back at work for the past two weeks has been hard. I just miss her so much. I worry about missing her grow and change when I'm at work. Hopefully by her 4 month update I will have settled into the new routine and no longer so emotional about the transition back to work. Wish me luck!
