Three Months with Poppy

The little lavender dress above is the first thing I picked out for my little girl when I was pregnant. I was in a store shopping for Rhett's summer wardrobe right after my anatomy scan and I just had to buy a pretty little dress for my daughter. I can't believe that she's already three months old! Her newborn habits are slowly fading away and her baby personality is beginning to shine through! She does not appreciate being put down and won't tolerate not being able to see me or Rhett. Lately she hasn't had much love for her daddy, but I'm sure that will change. She loves her big brother. He calls her "Baby Sister" almost all the time, though when she's crying it's always. "POPPY. POPPY. QUIET!!".

For the past three weeks or so she's slept through the night about 80% of the time. She goes down around 9:30 and usually doesn't wake up until 6:00. Then she eats and goes back to sleep until Rhett inevitably wakes her up around 7:00. She eats about six times a day and she's really good at it. She eats fast and is ready to play and look around. She's outgrowing her 0-3 month clothes and I'm slowly rotating more 3-6 month stuff into her drawer and closet. Her baby acne and cradle cap are finally gone and her hair is starting to get a bit thicker (after initially losing a bunch of her fresh-from-the-womb hair)

She's a sweet, smily little thing. She loves to be talked to and played with. She'll be our last baby and we're really trying to soak in every minute. My house is usually a mess because I'd rather play with her and Rhett than clean it and I'm not letting myself feel guilty over it. I know that in five years, I'm not going to care that there was always more laundry to do. I feel so blessed to get to spend this year at home while my kids are still so little and sweet.
