(Somehow I always get a picture of her with her mouth wide open like this! Ha!)
Little Miss Kerigan you are three months old today! Maybe that is wrong because you are actually 13 weeks, but I go by the 12th of every month. Somehow a mysterious week sneaks in there, but this is how the pediatrician does it, so that's how I count it!
I feel like I say this all the time, but time is just flying by. I can't believe I only have one more month home with you before I go back to work. I can't even think about sending you to day care. I honestly don't know how I'll get through it. I love being home so much, I could do this every day forever. There is just nothing better than being home with my kids every day. Best job in the world! You and Andrew are the biggest joys in my life!
You like your playtime after your feedings, so we try to keep the routine of eat, play, nap. For play time you love your bouncy and the lights and songs. You have started grabbing for the toys and you smile so big! You also love your Bumbo seat. I show you different toys and read to you while you sit in it. You love listening to books and you always look very interested in the pictures and my voice. You also play on your baby gym and love to grab at the toys and look at yourself in the mirror. We are getting ready to bring up your exersaucer because I have a feeling you will love it. I want to get you a jumperoo too, because you love standing on your legs when we are holding you and I think you would go to town if you could jump!
You do this cute thing where I have you sideways on my lap and you'll give me a shy smile, and you must know I love it because I always pull you into me and smother you with kisses. Then you'll smile and lean towards me just like that again so I'll do it again! It is the most precious thing ever. It is like our special little "game" we like to play!
This is that little "shy" smile
You are not rolling over yet, but you are close! You arch your back and turn to the side and are going to flip over any day! I try to watch you constantly because I don't want to miss that moment! The only time you really sit in your swing anymore is when you are ready to sleep after playtime. All I have to do is start swinging you, give you your paci (I have to hold it in your mouth for a few minutes) and rub your bunny blankie by your face. I love watching your sleepy eyes droop and close. It is so sweet. You don't sleep very well in your crib during the day. Luckily you sleep great in it at night.
I feel like just yesterday I took your two month pictures. Slow down, girlie! We are taking you for professional three month pictures next week and I can't wait to see how they turn out! I'll post them when we get them back but they'll be a little behind so I wanted to get these up today!
Love you to the moon and back, baby girl!
