Three and a half month old baby Nova Skye laughs hysterically on video about her first time in a restaurant highchair. While you can't see them in the video, mom and dad were right there watching. It was mommy who took the video and both of them were talking to her.
Nova turned 3 months old yesterday (9/2/2016)! Check out the fun photo gallery below, after reading about her amazing baby milestones at three months old.
Nova is getting so big and enjoying so much more. She finally got to test out her Evenflo Exersaucer that Grandma Rowell got for her and she absolutely loves it! Don't worry, she has all the signs of being ready to use it, such as being able to control her own head and pushing with her feet if in a standing position. There are more signs, but that should give you an idea. She was so funny playing with it. She got extremely excited and said hi to the teddy bear and monkeys several times. She does that to everything with a face, be it a toy or a person.
Speaking of signs, Nova had a well-baby checkup recently and guess what?! She's developing well and has met or exceeded every single milestone for her age. She weighed 9 lbs, 3 oz, as of 8/31/2016. That's up significantly from her birth weight of 5 lbs, 7.5 oz. She's also now 2o inches long! She was a little under 17 inches at birth.
Nova is playing a ton these days and is super active during the day. She plays with her feet, plays with any toys we put near her or hand to her, plays in the Exersaucer, laughs when people do silly things, requests specific toys with a distinct sound when she sees them, and so much more. Her favorites include a monkey teething blanket, the Exersaucer, a small Pokemon figurine that Nathan gave her, family members, cardboard tubes, her Summer Infant SuperSeat, an elephant wind chime my mom has (she likes to ring the bells with her feet), and a few more.
Nova's been doing so much lately that we can hardly keep up! Stay tuned for the next post. It's even easier if you hit the subscribe button on the right sidebar, so you don't miss a thing.

Nova's been wearing a lot of "new" stuff lately. This Bon Bebe monkey 0-3 month onesie is yet another that she now fits after getting closer to three months old. It's yet another thing we got from one of the Safari Thrift $4 bag sales. In fact, it was the same bag sale as a lot of the ones that she's wearing now! There are a pair of pants that go with it, but it may be a little warm today to wear them.
We're having a lot of fun seeing her actually fitting a lot of the clothes that everyone bought her before she was even before. It's a heck of a lot more fun to see a baby wear it than to just sit there in a bin, that's for sure!
Here are a few more pictures of her in the monkey outfit. Plus, a couple of Nova smiles that Daddy had to coax out of her using some monkey sounds. Ha, ha!

Nova is growing so fast and outgrowing so many of her outfits. Fortunately, we have plenty of 3 month outfits ready to go from before she was born. This Gerber penguin onesie is a 3 to 6 month outfit that she now fits into perfectly. We actually got this from one of the $4 bag sales at Safari Thrift in February. Here are pictures from her first time wearing it.
Nova Skye was born in June of 2016. Nova means "chases butterflies" in Cherokee and we hope she always flies high in the sky chasing after her dreams and goals. Join us on journeys through baby & toddler parenting fun, see life through the eyes of Nova Skye, and so much more!
