Five... things I want to teach my daughter

1. Never hold onto anything tighter then your holding onto God.

2. People learn how to treat you based on what you accept from them.

3. Collect moments, not things.

4. We all fall down. If you fail, get up and try again. Those who never tumble never meet their potential.

5. Focus on the good, be thankful for what you have and give all the glory to God.

3 Months Old

Sweet Brown was right, "ain't nobody got time for that!" This new Mama is quickly learning life with a little one leaves little time for much else .. sooo I'm a few weeks behind, but better late then never, right?

I think we've hit the golden age of babyhood... happy but not yet mobile and getting more predictable. She's such an easy baby {and I'm pretty certain that I will not be this lucky with her siblings}. She's becoming so much more interactive, she is full of smiles and she loves to talk {about whatever it is she's babbling about}, our conversations are the highlight of my day! She is so much more alert and curious, she loves to flirt with the fan {as most babies do} and examine her surroundings.


She's a good little sleeper. She is still sleeping in the bassinet of her pack n' play in our bedroom. I haven't had the urge to get her into her crib, I enjoy her being close. She has slept through the entire night a handful of times, however, it's normal that she wakes up just once for a diaper change and to eat anywhere between 3 and 5am. She falls right back to sleep as soon as her belly has been filled. I don't mind waking up with her, she is always so excited to see me arrive at her bed side, I get the biggest grin.


She still loves her hands. She loves to suck on them and examine them. And it's not only her hands that she loves putting in her mouth... rattles, blankees, mommy and daddy's fingers... nothing is off limits.

Elle spends her weekdays with her G-Ro. Grandparents are so special and we are so thankful Elle is so loved and gets to spend so much time with her grandma.
All tuckered out from a hard day of play! =)

Saturday's and Sunday's are our favorite days, we try to make them as lazy as possible. We snuggle in the mornings with Dad and spend our time hanging out and giving kisses.
Month three has been so much fun. We love watching our precious girl learn new things and reach different milestones. I can't wait to report back about month four!
