YMCA with Daddy, sorry resolution's not great.



My baby girl is getting SO big SO fast! I can't believe my eyes. She turned 3 months on the 5th, so I'm a little behind with this post, but the picture is accurate. Every new day it seems like she's so much bigger. She's already so much heavier and longer. We didn't have a pediatrician appointment for her 3 months, so we'll update on stats at her 4 month update.

This girl is the sweetest, and happiest baby I have ever known. And I'm so blessed to call her mine!

Here are some of her 3 month habits:
* She has found her thumb! She' ll just suck and suck on it, with all her other fingers still open, so she completely covers her mouth and parts of her nose with her hand when she sucks on her thumb (sometimes her index finger)
*She is SUCH a smiley baby! Even for strangers. All. The. Time. I love it!
*Jamison likes to sing the YMCA and do cute little actions with her...she loves it. I love seeing him with her. Melts my heart.
(I'll post the video next. She's usually giggling up a storm when they play together.)
* From her very first ultrasound we've noticed that she's loved putting her hands in her face...that has not changed. And I love that it's something she's done since before birth.
*She's so observant! She doesn't like being held like a baby either, she prefers to be held in my hips so she can prop her head up and look around.
*She casually grabs my hair, or my necklace and just gently plays with it between her fingers. Never pulls really hard, she just likes the feel of everything.
*She's recognizing voices better. She knows when grandma or grandpa is around...and she's always known when mommy and daddy are around. She follows us with her eyes when we're cooking, cleaning, etc. Makes me feel so special! :)
*I put together her bouncer the other day, and though she can't reach the bottom, or her toys on it yet, she loves to sit in it because it means she can look around, and see what mommy's doing.
*The first thing I hear every morning when I wake up is her taking to herself. It's only when I take a long time to get her that she starts to fuss.
*She'll tuck her head into the corner of her carseat cushion when she wants to nap without us bugging her, or when she wants to avoid sunlight.
*She can sit herself up now! I love to see her. I feel so bad sometimes seeing her fuss and not knowing what she i love that she can sit herself up when she wants to. Not to mention, it's super cute to see her work and fight to get propped up!

Anyway...I'm just so in love with my darling angel. And I can't wait to see what 4 months brings! For sure there will be more smiles, treasured moments, and LOTS of laughs.

I love you Emma baby!
