3 Months

Where has the time gone... Elizabeth is 3 months old today ): Whoever said time goes by fast is definitely right. I cherish every moment I spend with my baby girl!!!!!

Elizabeth has developed such a little personality over the last month. She loves to smile, but her sweet smile quickly goes away in front of the camera. At times, she acts like she is shy and buries her head in your arm (so cute). She coos quite a bit now, and when you imitate her she just gets louder. She is such a little wiggle worm, always on the go. She has become quite animated with her eyebrows as well!

We do not have a 3 month appointment so no stats to report. BUT, we could't have a birthday without a photo shoot....

Elizabeth is now wearing size 1-2 diapers and size 3-6 month clothing depending on the brand. I told you she is getting big! I had to start supplementing with formula this past Friday, as her demands were too much to keep up with ): She continues to eat every 3-4 hours and loves the bottle. She went from refusing to take one, to almost preferring the bottle in a matter of days. As I have said before, she loves to eat and sleep. I can now say, she sleeps in her crib and has for the past month or so(:  And not only does she sleep in her crib, she does so for approximately 9-11 hours per night! Might I say this makes for a happy mommy and daddy(: Naps are still irregular, but getting better. I went back to work this past week and she did GREAT! I am so relieved that it went well and so thankful for her care while I am away at work. I never have to worry that she is not being taken care of, maybe just that she is being spoiled even more (:

Elizabeth LOVES
Sitting in her bumbo
Bottles ):
Being outdoors
Laying flat on a surface and smiling
Nuzzling her head into someones arms and falling asleep
Her crib mobile
To "cat" nap

Elizabeth DISLIKES
Tummy time
Changing clothes
Being hot (just like her momma)
Dirty diapers

Being Elizabeth's mommy is hands down the best job ever!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Today was a wonderful day indeed!!! Mother's day, church membership and Elizabeth's baptism all rolled into one (: I must say that my first Mother's day was absolutely PERFECT, even if I was a bit under the weather!

Elizabeth could not have been sweeter during the Baptism. She looked absolutely beautiful in her gown.I only wish she would have worn her bonnet; we were all scared to put it on her since she was being so good for fear it would upset her. Mom graciously hosted both families at her house afterwards for lunch; and I must tell you it was delicious!

One of the tables!

So good (:
