This is probably the last monthly update I’ll do about being a father for a while but we’ve seen so many more changes with our daughter which have been absolutely amazing.
Amelia is as of today now three months old and compared to when she was born she’s unrecognisable. As I’m sure all parents will agree, babies really are vegetables at first. They don’t really do anything apart from sleep, cry, pee and poo but now she’s three months old she’s completely tracking us, she’s reaching out for objects, loves trying to pull her clothes off (hope this isn’t a sign of things to come when she gets older!) and she’s doing her best to talk to us.
She absolutely loves belly raspberries, she’s always smiling, always laughing and thankfully her colic looks like it’s starting to pass. The thing that probably makes us laugh the most is her penchant for speed. For example, if we’re in the car and the car is stationary, she’ll start crying. The faster we drive and the bumpier the rode is, the happier she is. Many of Edinburgh’s roads are in horrible condition with potholes everywhere and she absolutely loves them. Maybe it replicates the feeling she had in Liv’s belly but it really makes us laugh.
As always we’ve been really busy with personal and professional work. Liv is finishing off her first year of college so she’s had deadlines to achieve and also needed some help with Illustrator and Photoshop as well as help in designing/laying things out and Amelia takes up all of our time. If both Liv and I are at home one of us can usually get on with some work but if just one of us is home right now it’s almost impossible. Amelia is sleeping more and more throughout the night but during the day, from say 8am up until 9pm she’ll sleep for about two hours but the rest of the time she wants to play.
Here are some photos taken within the last couple weeks of her. We also finally received the impressions we had made of her hands and feet. They came in a different colour to the one we ordered but we actually prefer the colour the workshop used (whether by accident or on purpose).
