Tess is 3 Months Old!

Tess turned 3 months old on October 31st! As usual I’m using What to Expect the First Year
 to compare where Tess is in her development with the “norm” for her age!

I had to have her wear some Halloween colors even though it totally clashed with her monthly sticker 😉

Tess can do everything a three month old baby should be able to do including:

  • lift head up 45 degrees when on stomach

Tess can also do everything a three month old will probably be able to do including:

  • laugh out loud 
  • on stomach, lift head 90 degrees
  • squeal in delight 
  • bring both hands together
  • smile spontaneously
  • follow an object held about 6 inches above baby’s face and moved 180 degrees, from one side to the other; with baby watching all the way

showing off the “hands together” skill!

She can do everything a three month old may possibly be able to do including:

  • hold head steady when upright
  • on stomach, raise chest, supported by arms
  • roll over one way
  • grasp a rattle held to backs or tips of fingers
  • pay attention to an item as small as a raisin

Tess can also do almost everything a three month old may be able to do including:

  • bear some weight on legs when held upright
  • keep head level with body when pulled to sitting
  • turn in the direction of a voice, especially mommy’s
  • say “ah-goo” or similar vowel-consonant combinations

The things Tess is not yet doing include:

  • reach for an object (if she hits an object it’s still accidental)
  • make a “razz” sound (I remember Britt didn’t do this either! I don’t think she ever did? I know Kye did do it for sure!)

You can look back at Kye’s 3 month post here and Britt’s here! I wish I could get Tess to be more SMILEY for these pics! Britt was so happy in all of hers all the time and I feel like Tess is always super serious in her monthly pics!

Sharing is caring!
