Happy 3 Month Birthday Baby

Fern  Winter turned three months old this past Sunday and we had our monthly photo shoot.  I can’t believe how fast she’s changing and growing (see Month 1 and Month 2 photo shoots to compare)!

I am documenting Fern’s first year of life by doing a round up of my favorite photos from that month and taking her photo in front of our chalkboard and making a list of her likes and dislikes.  Here’s what we’ve learned that Fern likes and dislikes this month:

Fern likes:

*sneaking peeks at “Mad Men”, *marathon nursings sessions, *standing up, *blowing spit bubbles, *grabbing Daddy’s beard, *stroller RUNS, *Grandpa singing “Swing Low”

Fern dislikes:

*laying on her back, *waiting for ANYTHING, *stroller WALKS, *Letting Mommy cook diner, *her binky – it’s not as cool as a boob

See Fern’s best photos from her third month of life after the jump!

  • My Happy Little Morning Person 1 of 11
    My Happy Little Morning Person
    Fern is so ridiculously happy in the morning that even though I am most definitely not a morning person, I can't help but smile at her cuteness.
  • Super Girly 2 of 11
    Super Girly
    Everyone always thinks Fern is a boy due to my preference for greys, greens and blues, but there was no mistaking her girliness in this sweet floral number courtesy of her Grammy.
  • Friends 3 of 11
    Fern loves her big kid friend Bennett - he calls her "Baby Fren" and it sounds like Baby Friend which totally melts m heart. I love the look of pure joy on her face in this photo.
  • Not a Fan 4 of 11
    Not a Fan
    Trying out the Bumbo seat and she wasn't particularly thrilled about it. Maybe next month.
  • Pretending It’s Summer 5 of 11
    Pretending It's Summer
    We had a fluke 68 degree day in Portland and Fern wore her first dress sans tights or pants. I think she was a little bit confused as to why I left her legs bare.
  • Close-up 6 of 11
    Sometimes I can hardly believe I had a hand in making this beautiful little creature.
  • Getting Fresh With Sophie 7 of 11
    Getting Fresh With Sophie
    Fern and Sophie got acquainted this month and Fern quickly wanted to take things to the next level.
  • Family Easter Photo 8 of 11
    Family Easter Photo
    We don't have a ton of family photos yet and I really like this one. It was our first Easter together, which also marked our first official family tradition: German Pancakes for Easter breakfast.
  • Contemplative 9 of 11
    I love her pensive look here.
  • 3 Months! 10 of 11
    3 Months!
    Having a little photo shoot with a three month old is surprisingly difficult! I thought it would get easier, but she only gets more wiggly!
  • Bonus: Outtakes 11 of 11
    Bonus: Outtakes
    I know I said I would choose the top 10 photos, but I had to ad in this outtake from the photo shoot. I love seeing how she's starting to get a little pudge on her cheeks. It's the cutest!
