After 3 years of trying, our little one joined us in May of 2010. 2 years later she became a big sister! Join us as we try to grow our family and sing God's praises.

She's 3 Months!
Yes, these pictures in the laundry basket is from pintrest. I can't believe how big she already is.
We don't have a Dr. appointment at 3 months, and at 2 months, she was 11.6 lbs, so I'm imagining somewhere about 12 1/2 pounds. She really is a GOOD baby. Not perfect, but really good. Penny wakes up between 6 and 8 AM and eats at that time. She still naps in between each feeding, but it's wonderful because she'll nap anywhere and we can be out and about and she'll just sleep in her stroller. She eats about 2-4 ounces after I breast feed her (making me think she's getting between 3-5 ounces per feeding). She loves the swing, and the floor mat. AND, here's the big news, she has rolled over from her tummy to her back - 6 times! 5 times to the right and 1 time to the left. This started the day before she turned 3 months. She is good at smiling and babbling. She gets startled fairly easily, and with her big sister jumping on her, occasionally she gets upset. Penny, you are a delight and I love watching you grow.
Speaking of her big sister, I wanted to add one more picture, here is how I found Macie after her nap yesterday. Completely out. I'm guessing she wasn't tired when I put her down, because she apparently did some reading, some dusting, talking on the phone, etc.
How precious are these little girls!? My heart is very full and I love what I do. In other news, I just found out that I get to be 60% this year at work. What does that mean? I start work at 6:54 and am finished at 9:58. Um...Heck Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! That's officially part time. I will have other obligations and grading and planning to do, but seriously, this is Fantastic! I can work and still be able to enjoy the girls and everything. So I'm very thankful for this developement.
And maybe one other reason I am feeling good this morning, is that today I get to use the mothers day gift DH got me, a trip to the spa for a massage. And some friends' husbands did the same, so we are going to enjoy ourselves.
