12 Weeks

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.
