Alexandra at 3 months

At exactly 3 months Alexandra turned from tummy to back. A couple of weeks later, at three and 1/2 months, she turned from back to tummy. Now she likes to sit. She pulls her body up in holds onto our hands. We have started letting her use the walker. We just added a whole bunch of blankets on her back.
She talks a lot. Seems like she believe she's actually communicating. I wonder if she understands that we use words, if she thinks we just communicate by random sounds, therefore she think she's really communicating.
She doesn't take up as much anymore. Choose to do it on a daily basis, several times a day. Now she can go for a week without hick ups.
She still has a lot of rashes on her body. I mean, not rashes. They're more like dry spots. She has a lot of dry spots.
People keep telling me that she looks like Dean. I'm still trying to figure out who she looks like. To me she just looks like a baby.
She sleeps through the night mostly. We usually put her to bed around 1030 between 1030 and midnight. She can sleep from then to anywhere between six and eight. In the morning that is.
We don't have much a routine for anything. I've been trying to be better about bathing her. Yeah. She has taken showers, baths in the sink, invests in the tub. I've been trying to bathe her or give her a shower at least once every other day. But things don't always happen the way I intend. I'm not really sure how any parent can keep any sort of routine. I don't deer to any parent movement but my own.  I'm not a follower of free demand or strict routine I can't have routines. I'm not a strict cloth diaper person or a strict disposable person. I just do what's convenient. I just do what works for us.

 I still don't know if I'm going to be a crappy parent.for now, I'm just having fun.
I'm having fun wondering why she makes all those funny noises and she looks like she's really talking. I'm having fun thinking about the fact that every single thing we do is just gonna be part of her past. I'm having fun watching her develop. I find it so amazing the baby comes out of mo i'm having fun wondering why she mean so those when you noises and she looks at us like she's really talking. I'm having fun thinking about the fact that every single thing we do it's just gonna be part of her past. I'm having fun watching her develop. I find it so amazing that a baby comes into this world knowing absolutely nothing other than sucking, in little by little they develop in the lane so many things each day, and eventually they become fully functioning adults, knowing so much about the world and being able to wonder about things I don't know. I'm having a lot of fun thinking about these things.
There's one thing I would really like to know, is what do babies thing right after they come out of their mother's tummy. Do they remember where they were? Do they understand where they are? Are they scared? Do they understand that they will never be able to go back to th that place ever again? Do they miss it? I would really like to be able to talk to a newborn baby, and understand what's in their minds.
Alexander's now making sounds with the back of her throat. No one taught her to do that. She just learned it. It's amazing no one teaches a baby how to speak. They learn it on their own. Just by observing people talk. Baby how to walk. No went to the baby how to sit. They just learn it. They do it just by observing other people doing it. And they figure they want to do it too.I mean, who taught Alexandra she should sit?
