She's Three Months Old!


I can't believe my baby girl is already 3 months old. Technically, this happened on March 26th, but we can cut me a bit of slack, no? I am parenting 3 kiddos...
Anywho, Let me be the first to say, she is a delight and a pure joy. She's exactly what I needed and I didn't even know I needed her until I met her. 

At three months, Mikayla is sleeping pretty well at night {anywhere from 7-8 hours of sleep, wake to eat, sleep 4 more hours}. She can pick up her head, though she isn't a big fan of tummy time. {Sometimes her tummy time happens on my bed so I can kneel down beside the bed and be at her eye level.} She attempts to roll over but always gets stuck half-way over.  lol

Mikayla is also pretty petite. At her 2 month appointment, she was between the 10th and 25th percentile for her weight and height. She's still wearing size 0-3 months in clothes {3 month size in Carter's brand} and I call her our petite miss. 

Her hair is strawberry blonde...heavy on the strawberry...and I suspect she may have curly hair just like her mama. :) It seems to be the same texture as mine and gets what I call "furly" {frizzy and curly} as it's growing out. 

She's very patient and really has blended in to the family quite perfectly. I love what she has added to our lives and how she brings out our best characteristics.

Eliana {age 2 1/2} does a pretty good job as a big sister. She's not competitive at all but she has this nurturing spirit about her that can be a bit much for a baby sometimes. lol I love to hear her sing to Mikayla and especially love the way she greets the baby each day with a high pitched, "Hewo, Mikay-wa!" or "Hi Mickey-Pie!".

Her big brother, who will be 5 tomorrow {don't get me started on that}, is her biggest fan and her protector. He loves to talk to her and hold her. Of course, little Mik knows her brother's voice and always has a smile for him.

And if she happens to get fussy...


Alex can calm her down with just a kiss on her forehead.


Life with three kiddos is full and busy but I'm in love with the busyness of three kiddos.
