Harper - 3 Months

Loving this girl more and more every day!  After an 8 week bout of colic (my heart starts racing just thinking about it - I'm still in shock we made it out alive!!) and a week and a half of a bad cough, I am ecstatic to announce that I am finally getting to know my baby!  Harper does not win the award for "greatest newborn", but I have to say that she is well on her to way to winning a "greatest 3 month old" prize!  I am in awe at what a different baby she has become!  She smiles all of the time, talks nonstop (unfortunately this runs in the family!) and is crazy active!  She started rolling over at 12 weeks (yikes, still not ready for a mobile one just yet!), holding her neck and head up like they are weightless, and has just found her voice so is entertaining us with her adorable voice constantly!  She nurses 4 times a day, sleeps approx. 10:30pm - 8:30am (have I mentioned I love this child?!), wears 3 month outfits and 6 month jammies.  We don't go to the doctor for another month but my guess is that she is at least 14 pounds!  We have already decided that she is going to be an athlete with how big and strong and active she continues to be!

Valentines Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's weekend!  Kinda fun it was on a Friday so you had the whole weekend to make plans!  Our day was filled with lots of hugs, kisses and of course some heart shaped and sugary goodies!

Sisters, Sisters

Caring .... Sharing .... Every little thing that we are wearing. 
It's safe to say that Avery is enjoying being a big sister and Harper is just fascinated with her.  Avery asks to hold her every day, she brings her a blanket every time she is without, a pacifier anytime she fusses and is constantly rubbing her head and telling her how cute and sweet she is.  Since I never had a sister, I always dreamed of what it would be like.  Although I know these sisters will drive each other crazy at times, I also believe they will always be crazy about each other.  I couldn't be more excited to watch these two grow up!

Olympics Time!

February is here and while I am so over the cold and snow we are getting in Illinois, I am oh-so excited to see the snow in Russia because it's Olympics time!  Figure skating will always be my favorite event to watch and my DVR is already set to record every ice event!  To celebrate tonight's opening ceremony, we made a couple of little things for Avery to help her understand what is going to be on our tv all day, every day, for the next 14 days.
 Ice cream cone + goldfish = Olympic torch
 glitter paper + ribbon = gold medal
 SO excited! :)
