12 weeks ago little Charlotte Quinn was born! I can hardly believe it’s been 12 weeks. She’s definitely not so little anymore. I am amazed at how much she’s changed recently. I’m totally grateful for my unplanned c-section right now because it means I still have 2 weeks of time fully devoted to her on maternity leave before diving back into work!
At 12 weeks, Charlotte…
- Was spoiled rotten in Indiana during her first visit to Grandma and Grandpa’s house.
- Met Great Grandpa.
- Met more family and friends than Mom can count – and she’s excited to meet more this summer!
- Sneezes a few times each day – especially in Indiana where everything was blooming.
- Did great on her second flight (home from Indiana) – thanks to an early morning flight, her swaddle and another entire row to ourselves, she slept nearly the whole way home!
- Loves watching TV (thanks to bonding time with Grandpa watching westerns – hehe. We are now weaning her off TV, but anytime it’s on her eyes are glued to it.)
- Is so much more interactive with her toys. She’s really starting to enjoy them now and enjoys a variety of toys during play time. She even (probably inadvertently) kicked a little ball she has. Future soccer player, perhaps?
- Smiles like crazy! Smiles that light her whole face up – especially when she sees/hears Mom and Dad!
- Is starting to get on more of a schedule – following the eat, wake, sleep schedule. It’s going pretty well and I hope she’s very adjusted to this routine when I return to work!
- Held her bottle on her own for the first time today! Don’t worry – we aren’t letting her loose to feed herself her bottles yet – just fun to see her grasp on to it and hold it in place for a bit.
4 Generations! Meeting Great-Great Aunt Frankie. And no, this isn’t photo-shopped. I am really that much taller than her. Hello awkward family photo!
Charlotte loves her elephant Daddy got her when she was born! Charlotte with Mommy’s favorite bear from childhood and Daddy’s favorite raccoon!Grandma and Grandpa!
Charlotte is going to love the porch swing at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.
