3 Months!!!

I am in shock, how has 3 months passed already. My life has certainly not been the same since Kate came into it, and it hasn't been easy, but I would not want to take any of it back. I am trying to soak up as much of her baby time as I can, and appreciate every cuddle and smile and giggle because I know before I blink she'll be big and my tiny baby days will be over, and that makes me very sad. So, even though she kept me up half the night last night, and my days and nights are still very unpredictable, I love my baby girl with all my heart. Here are a few recent pictures, she's chubbing up for sure, but is still my smallest baby by far, she's still actually in 0-3 months clothes (she is starting to outgrow them, but lots still fit her well)! My other babies were long in 3-6 month or even 6-9 month clothes occasionally by now! As you can tell, her big sister Beth is IN LOVE with her, and often wants to be holding her or playing with her. I even pump and let Beth feed her once in a while because it just makes Beth day to be able to feed her. As you can also tell, Kate's smiles are plentiful these days, and I love it!! (Of course she's crying right now while I try and type this :) )

Notice Beth's cute haircut!

My Joy

One of these days I will post about things other than the baby, but right now I don't go anywhere or do anything other than house work, so she's the best thing I have to post about...and I just adore her! I've had a bit of a hard time lately feeling good about myself, its hard when you can't lose weight and you get nothing done during the day, but she truly brings me joy. Her temperament has improved dramatically, and we've had a few good nights of sleep, so she is just so easy to love these days, not that she has ever been hard. Here are a few pictures of her smiles and her first time trying out her play gym, she is getting so she really likes looking at toys and playing with her brother and sister, its so cute. Lots of smiles and coos and almost giggles, so much fun! When I'm struggling and feeling down, all that needs to happen is for her to wake up and give me one of her grins and life seems better. I'm so glad I have her.

Who couldn't be cheered up by that face??
