Cora - three months

Happy Three Months Baby Girl!

Time is flying and you are getting so big!!

While our friend from Missouri was here this month we went on a picnic and you got to be down in the grass for the first time.  You didn't seem to mind it.  

You went to your first VBS at church this week.  You usually made it through the worship time but when the speaker started each night you were ready for a diaper change and to go eat.  

Mrs. Bonnie and Mr. Lance sent you these cutie, cute cute flip flops!

and this little outfit!

You wore it to Freddy's for Daddy's birthday dinner.  

You are still sleeping well.  Sometimes you go all night, sometimes you don't . . . 

You put yourself to sleep fairly well.  Sometimes for naps in the bouncer or swing (or even once on your activity gym mat) and often at night now.  We change your diaper, put on jammies (or often just a onesie with as warm as it's been) and tuck you into your swaddle.  You like to have your paci and you will be laid down and drift off to sleep.  

One day I came in during your nap to check on you and you had your feet propped up on the crib side. So cute! 

We had a good time going to Bluegrass and BBQ (which your brother called Bluegrass and Barbecue Sauce!)

I'm still having fun with your clothes.  People have been so generous to us and have blessed us with many, many gifts and hand me downs.  In fact your closet is FULL.  You are starting to outgrow things and I am happy to be able to pass them along to the pregnancy center to give to new moms and we will also be sending some of your things to Zambia through our church to bless tiny babies there.  

Your brother continues to adore you and let you know so oh so enthusiastically.  

We had a couple of playdates this month and you always do great!

Happy girl in your cute little summer sunsuit from Mrs. Leita Rue!

You have started sitting in your bumbo chair some and you really, really seem to enjoy it!  You smile a lot when you're sitting in it.  

Your brother had to check it out too.  

and fill it with toys . . . 

You are such a sweet, peaceful sleeper.

You are just barely starting to hold toys but you love to move all around and have turned over from your front to your back a couple of times.  

Pretty girl!

You had your first "girls' night" this month with Mama and Nana, we went to eat dinner at Whole Foods and then shopped some.  You were good at hanging out in the dressing room with Nana while Mama tried on clothes. 

i love the way your hair is starting to stick up in a little curl on the crown of your head!

You smile and grin at us A LOT and talk to us now and then.  It is so, so much fun!  We are having such a good time with you! 

Reading together

At the end of June we went on a Sunday evening family picnic to the park and had to bundle up it was so chilly!  You continue to enjoy being outside.  

You continue to really enjoy being on your changing table and that is where you will talk the most usually.  You have begun doing a little "dance" where you wriggle your whole body around.  It is really cute.  I think you'd like to roll over from your back to your tummy as well but you're still working on that.  

When we come in to get you up in the morning you reward us with a huge grin!  You're very social and like to be in on the action and hanging out with us.  

You started chewing on our fingers and drooling big time this month.

You really enjoy sitting up (supported) and facing out.  The other day you were trying to raise your head up in your carrier.  

You weigh just over 13 lbs.  

Unfortunately we finished off the month with a trip to the ER.  

You were running a fever of 102-103 and the pediatrician's office told us to take you in.  You were still smiling in the waiting room so we were thankful that you didn't seem too, too sick.  

You gave Daddy's camera this face too though and I think you were beginning to get skeptical of this place and the rest of the evening I will admit was NOT fun as they poked and prodded you.  It looks like it was just a virus and you are back to being your normal self.  We are so thankful!  

We love you baby girl!  

You are a special, special gift!
