3 months!

and 2 weeks late :-)

I'm thinking my Karlyn updates from here on out may not be monthly...or just shorter.  But I wanted to include her 3 months news!

Here's our sweetie on 3/16/11

And I love this iPhone pic:

Karlyn, you are growing up too fast!  Here's what you're up to these days.

* * * * *

You're still eating like a champ.  You take after your parents and love to eat.  When you're hungry, YOU'RE HUNGRY.  But once you're done, you give me the sweetest smiles and are so fun and happy.  Speaking of smiles, you flash them all the time now!  When you see mommy or daddy or hear us talk, you'll give us a cute grin which makes us feel good and like you know who we are.  You'll smile at other people though too.  You haven't laughed yet but I'm sure that's not too far off.

You love to lay on your activity mat now (Brian Reagan..."Come up with a different activity!") and now you can actually reach for, bat at, and hold on to the dangly toys :)  It's so fun to watch you on it and entertain yourself.  On March 20, (my b-day!) you half-way rolled over for the first time!  Not all the way...you got stuck on your side and just cried.  It was kinda funny.  We're still waiting for you to make it all the way over.

Your sleep has been sporadic as we went through an early 3 month growth spurt and then more recently what appears to be early teething.  You
with daddy's help were beginning to make a habit of ending up in our bed... But finally, last night you made it from 8:30 to 6:30 this morning!  In your own room. It was wonderfulness.  Now I just need to work on transitioning you from your yellow FP bassinet into the crib.  Like soon.

You've started making these hilarious high pitched jungle animal sounds that crack. me. up.  You can tell me an entire little baby story with these noises and I love it.  You still are a big fan of your nightly bath and we finally moved you out of the newborn insert (sniff, sniff) into the actual baby tub.  I love getting to spend this time with you each night.

You're getting so big and are wearing size 3-6 month clothes and size 1-2 diapers.  You love your pacifier and the white staticy noise on your swing.  It's getting harder to clip your tiny fingernails because you flail around more on the changing table mat.  I love this age but I also can't wait till you're older and we bake brownies and watch chick flicks together. :>

Happy 3 months Karlyn Kaye!  Mommy and daddy love your sweet fluffy self  ;-)

Can't believe she's already 3 months old! She's so precious!

(The only way we were able to clip Makayla's nails was when she was asleep. So you may try that if baby K won't stay still for you anymore! :-)
