3 Month Comparison:

Amelia, Samantha and Meredith

Maybe it’s just the fat rolls, but Meredith still seems to be trending more toward Samantha’s looks.

This girl wears 6 month sizes and sure loves to eat! At just before the 12 week mark, we dropped the late night dream feed and she started sleeping 8 pm-5 a.m. She’s since stretched her wake up time to 6 or 7 a.m. I can count on one hand the number of times the twins slept like that their entire first year!

Meredith, you are a star baby!

Overhead shot of Amelia and Samantha at 3 months. I was reminded about how fussy they were at this age looking back through pictures– any pictures of them smiling were few and far between. We have tons of smiley Meredith pictures in comparison!

Meredith has started drooling a lot more and loves to chew on her hands. She refuses to take a pacifier (shocking, since the girls were so attached to their Wubbanubs), but loves to suck her thumb. I have an ultrasound picture of her sucking her thumb in the womb, so I guess she’s been that way since the beginning.

Ripping off her bow and sticker, just like the twins used to do.

Meredith has great head control and loves to view the world from her tummy. The twins absolutely loathed tummy time back in the day.

Meredith’s favorite activity is going to the park and watching all the crazy kids play. She certainly gets out and about a lot more than the twins ever did. A typical week for her includes going to the park every day and watching the girls during gymnastics and music, plus play time and arts and crafts at home with her crazy sisters. She’s just along for the ride!

I came across this picture of the twins and had flashbacks of the girls and I hanging out on the bed near the 5 o’clock hour when Jake would walk in from work and find us all in tears! It was so much harder to get out with the twins back then… I think they were so fussy due to boredom at the end of the day!

When Meredith goes out, everyone comments on her chubby cheeks! Meant to be squeezed.

Meredith loves bath time and post-bath snuggles.

She’s usually so bored with me, but as soon as the twins are around, Meredith lights up and gets so excited to play!

Meredith enjoys watching everyone eat and was jealous she was too little to try Auntie Lynn’s matzoh fry.

Ready for adventure. Meredith naps really well when she’s in the wrap, stroller or on the go somewhere, but in her crib, she generally takes pretty short 45 minute naps throughout the day. This girl has major FOMO and has a hard time settling because she wants to be a part of the action  ALL. THE. TIME. While she’s generally super mellow and happy, if she hasn’t napped well during the day, she tends to melt down in the evening, but more often than not, she’s happy to hang out and read stories with the twins before nodding off to sleep peacefully at bedtime.

Meredith is a great sport when the girls want to hold her.
