Olivia {3 Months Old}

Baby girl!
3 months old!
Love it and so excited for the next few months.
I remember loving months 3, 4, and 5 with Jack.
So much personality and no movement :)
  As I thought, Livvie is getting much easier. 
She is content to chill in the swing, bouncer, or her play mat for quite some time. It's nice to be able to set her down for a chunk of time and do something more than pee without having her scream.
But...she still screams every time we put her in the car?
It's like she knows as soon as we put her in her seat that she's going in the car because she starts to get mad. Then she's fine while I carry her to the car and set her down and get Jack buckled in.
But, as soon as I put the seat in the base, it's a matter of minutes before the screaming begins. And it doesn't stop.
I thought we were on the upswing for awhile there around the 2 month mark because she was starting to go some car trips without screaming.
We're back with the regular screaming now. When we went to Tahoe last week, I pretty much sat in the backseat the whole time, squished between the two carseats, so I could keep her calm. The paci seems to help.
Speaking of the paci, baby girl still loves it! Works magic with her.
Especially when trying to get her to fall asleep.
She fights sleep like none other (so different from Jack who fell asleep so easily).
This girl just doesn't seem to want to miss a thing. She will start getting fussy, so I will work on getting her to sleep, and she just gets angrier and angrier. When I finally give up and let her look around - happy as can be.
Rarely does she fall asleep without a fussy fit. Alas.
Livvie has discovered her hands and loves them!
She is always chomping on them.
She has also started grabbing onto toys while on her floor mat.
Oh, and the TV. Obsessed. She could stare at it all day if we let her.
And, we hit another milestone! 
Livvie rolled over from stomach to back for the first time on July 29th, a little before 11 weeks (right at 2.5 months). 
I was definitely surprised to see her do that, and thought it might have been a random accident.
But, she continues to roll almost every time she is placed on her stomach.
Cannot wait for her to roll back to stomach so I can let her sleep on her stomach because I think she will sleep so much better that way.
So rough.
She is still sleeping awful at night.
Every once in a while I get maybe 4-5 hours, but I feel like we are mostly on the 2-3 hour stretch stint.
To be honest, the nights are such a blur that I hardly remember them come morning...
I moved her into her own room and crib a few nights ago, hoping that she might sleep better there (because Jack started sleeping through the night once I moved him to his room - but I think that's because he also learned to roll to his stomach at that time).
But, her own room has not seemed to make a difference...wah.
She's still a super smiley baby - her face just explodes. 
I love just looking over at her, without saying anything, and she is just beaming.
Such a sweet addition to our family.

Jack loves her most of the time, and she is really starting to notice him.
He definitely makes her smile when he 'talks' to her or tries to play with her.
So cute to see them begin to interact. 

Livvie had her 3 month appointment to get her shots today (we are on an irregular shot timeline because we started them earlier than normal - 7 weeks instead of 2 months- because of the whooping cough outbreak going around here).
