3 Months Old!

Lily is 3 months old!

Our sweet baby is just growing by the day. She's getting more and more of a personality too!

I've been back to work for a few weeks now and Lily has done so well with our friends, Rachel and Stacie. They've both been splitting time with her each week to help us with childcare. It's been tremendous to be able to transition back to work this way. We know that Lily is with people with know and trust, she's got little friends at both houses, and - they both text us photos so that we can get a peek at our girl during the day.

Both ladies have commented on what a good baby Lily is. I don't want to brag, but I will, and they're right! She's a pretty relaxed little girl - unless there is something she needs (diaper, food, nap, snuggles, etc). We really did hit the baby jackpot!

Lily has grown a lot this past month. We haven't been able to weight or measure her, but she is already starting to grow out of her 3 month clothes! Her PJ's and onesies anyway, she's just too tall! Her legs are very strong and she absolutely loves to stand (with our help to balance). Look at her in her crib!

Lily is very chatty. We love to sit down when we get home and let her tell us about her day. She'll squawk and coo, all while she's kicking her legs and smiling. Most amazing of all is her little giggle! While playing on her mat or vibrating chair, she not only reaches up to hit her toys, but now she's grasping them as well. She is really discovering her hands. We'll catch her checking them out quite often. She also hit a big milestone on the 14th - she slept through the night! Granted, "through the night" is only until 4:00 a.m. for us, but still! I'm forever grateful for the extra sleep, that's for sure.

We love how happy she always is. Sunday morning while Jeremy made breakfast, we all listened to music and danced around the kitchen. I was holding Lily and Jeremy was playing with her feet and she just giggled and giggled. Along with her birth and our wedding day... it was one of the happiest moments of my life. Nothing complicated or extravagant - just our little family, being silly, together.

Our Lily simply amazes us each and every day.

Happy 3 Months, Sweet Lily!
