Three Months

Miss Lilyanna is now three months old. I have no idea how much she weighs or how long she is, except that she looks longer, and her cheeks are a little fuller than they used to be. She just learned to roll over (back to front) and is very determined to scoot herself around once she makes it on to her tummy. I don't remember my other kids trying to scoot so early, but maybe they did. It's all a blur.

Speaking of blurs, I can't believe that it's been three months already. I've never begrudged the passage of infancy before. It's not my favorite time of child development, honestly, but I'm enjoying this so much, that I hate to see these months slip by so quickly. I could seriously just sit around all day and stare at her.

In other news, it looks like we are going to have a thumb sucker on our hands. I haven't decided yet how I feel about that, but it doesn't really matter. She will do it, regardless.

This little winter baby is loving spring! She likes to lay on a blanket in the grass while I get in 5 minutes of gardening at a time. And then she wants to eat again. I'm learning to do everything in life in 5 minute intervals.

Lilyanna is loved. All of her brothers are convinced that they are her favorite brother. But Nathaniel is pretty sure that he's winning:

Surprise! I read your blog. I hope that's okay.

Anyway, this was just too cute, I had to comment. That picture of Lilyanna and Nathanial is priceless. Jacob would be just like that, I know. Actually, it makes me shudder to think how much J&J would argue over a baby. I hope it doesn't come to that at your house.

She is indeed growing up so quickly. I'm glad that you can squeeze as much as you can from the time you have. It truly flies, doesn't it?

Too adorable, friend. Oh, the time passes so quickly. I'm so happy that you're enjoying the moments with her. It is so bittersweet for me to say that I think we're done having kids. What a lucky little girl to have all those guys to look out for her.

Be prepared. Bridget was scooting by 3 months, crawling by 6 months and running by 9 months and she has never stopped. I am glad you are enjoying having a little girl. They definitely can bring out your girlie side...even for us mostly "tomboys"
