Hope is Three Months Old!

I CANNOT believe it but my baby girl is already three months old. I apologize for the tardiness of this post as she actually turned three months on the first, but life with a child in school is a little crazier than I had expected!

So here is the lowdown on Hope these days:

She is still wearing 0-3 month clothes (but probably shouldn't, I just can't bear to pack them away)

She is still nursing exclusively.

She is smiley most of the time, especially when her brothers are talking to her.

She prefers to be held by mommy ALL the time

She hates the car still. She prefers to be held and doesn't like the stroller either. So most of the time I wear her. I can't say I mind. :)

She loves the beach.

She LOVES white noise. During fussy times, the hood of the range and the vacuum are our friends.

She is drooling like crazy!

She loves to sing, especially WHILE nursing. Weird but oh so cute.

She is bright eyed and awake for a good portion of the day now.

She HATES taking her Prevacid, but it seems to be doing the trick.

I am not sure how big she is because we have not been to the doctor since her two month visit. (yes that is a record)

She continues to do well. She has not blistered AT ALL again praise God. We do find her skin to be fragile though and she scratches and scrapes easily.

She likes sleeping in her swing.

She is such a joy! We love her so very much and thank God every day for the miracle he is doing in her. I sometimes have to pinch myself when I see how great she is doing. After her diagnosis I NEVER imagined things could ever be this "normal". I pray they continue this way.

Thank you ALL for your continued prayers! We are hanging in there and Hope is amazing us all! :)

Kids grow like weeds don't they?
But what wonderful weeds they are!

Every child is so precious.

If she likes white noise, have you considered a air purifier? We used one in my kids room when they were babies and it worked great. They slept good and it blocked out normal noise from the house and other kids. Kinda like the vacuum but easier to use when needed!

So beautiful, been praying stil, sounds like Aidan, loving to be held, but hey I guess we can accomodate, keeping having faith that the Lord has healed her. My eyes are tearing up just thinking about this.

She's precious. I love the picture where her hat is covering one eye, and she's making a face like, 'Hey...somebody fix this hat!' :)

Precious. Where did you find her little "Hope" shirt? Happy 3 months!!

Awww...what a baby doll! Love the hat-over-the-eye pic too. Glad to hear she is doing well.

I always had a box fan in my kids' rooms when they slept. They still sleep with one and they're all grown up.
