At three months, Ava is starting to get a little attitude! If I don't make her a bottle fast enough (which is right when she first makes her first peep) then she gets MAD! Then, once I put the bottle in her mouth, she makes the funniest noise like she was starving to death. It's pretty cute. She LOVES to be talked to and will smile the whole time. Usually, she will try to talk back. Now, I can pretty much tell what her cries mean. They all sound a little different. Her hungry cry has pauses in between each cry and her tired cry is long and is followed by a super sad face. Also, she kicks all. the. time. Seriously, if she isn't sleeping, she is kicking. And being kicked in the ribs by tiny feet is not fun, let me tell you.

Check back next month for her Four Month update! Thanks for reading!
