Adelyn: 3 Months

Well folks, Miss Adelyn is now 3 months old! Where has the summer gone? I recently asked my friend this and she responded with, "you have a baby".  Ahh yes, that is where my summer went. I have been playing with Addy (and feeding and feeding and feeding her) and her big brothers and watching them grow.

Adelyn 3 month-old stats:

-She coos and "talks" a lot
-She can roll from her belly to her side.
-She can grab objects to play with them.
-She literally catnaps Not fun.
-She is starting to laugh especially when raspberries are blown on her skin and air is blown through her hair. So Fun!
-She is not a huge fan of her car seat, but if her belly is filled to the brim with milk she tolerates it.
-She already gets a kick out of Jack and Owen who are quite often right up in her face loving on her.
-She is a better sleeper than her brothers ever were, however sometimes she only wakes once, but last night I lost count after six.
-She knows her name and our voices.
-She is growing lots of yummy chub rolls on her arms and legs. 
-She is incredibly loved by the four of us.

Summer Lovin'

Summer lovin' had me a blast.
Summer lovin' happened so fast.

I had a few minutes to reflect on our summer thus far and these lyrics flooded my brain. 

Can time just stand still pleeeaaassse (that was in my most nasely, child-like voice..a la my children in the Target toy aisle) so our summer fun can last a little longer?  Oh how I wish the answer could be yes. 

This is why I have been absent from my blog over the past couple of weeks. I have chosen to play a little longer outside or take another walk or go for a night swim or go eat ice cream with my kiddos instead of blog. I have also chosen to chat with Pat while swinging on our front porch swing with drink in hand or watch a new show together instead of blog. I try to blog after these things, but with Addy still waking up a couple times a night, I am exhausted. No matter how good of a multitasker I think I am, something always has to give (my house, this blog, my sanity). I have actually fallen asleep a few times recently while trying to write a blog. I have woken up a few hours later laying in bed with my computer on my lap and fingers on the keyboard. Sheesh! 
So for now, I am lovin' up on my munchkins, Pat and these beautiful summer days/nights.

Be back soon....
