{monthdate} three months

Dearest Ellie Faith,

How can it be that you are already three months old? It really seems like just yesterday you were born and we were making the drive home from Spokane. We feel so blessed to have you in our life and enjoy every moment we have with you. Sweet sweet Ellie you really are a dream come true. 

We have done so many things this month with you and you have been so good and just followed along. 

We had an evening photo shoot with my dear friend Susie and the pictures are amazing. 

You got your first congested nose cold. 

We went on our first overnight vacation as a family to Chelan (including grandparents, aunties, uncles, and cousins). You were a good girl and did really good sleeping. 

Stats: (no appointment for 3 months)
Height: guessing longer than 21"
Weight: somewhere in the 11-12 pound range
Head: larger than 15 1/4"
Food: eating 4 to 6 ounces at each feeding about five times a day. 
Diapers: size one. 
Clothes: 0-3 months are fitting well. 
Sleeping: pretty well through the night 6-7 hours. And then still has a few naps during the day. 
Cries: when hungry and sometimes when she is tired or unsettled. 
Loves: rocking in her swing, eating, diaper changes, mobile, holding her blankets, making funny faces and "talking" with us. 
Hates: still not a big fan of getting her boogers out and sleeping in her bassinet.

Mama's proudest moment: that she recognizes me and calms down with me. 

Daddy's proudest moment: that Ellie recognizes me and smiles when she sees me. 

Oops of the month: forgetting to pack burp cloths and bibs in the diaper bag. 

Things we are looking forward to: getting our adoption finalized this month!! 

We just love you so much and are so proud to be your parents. We love watching you grow and being with you together this summer!!

Mama and Daddy
