3 Months Old - What a Big Girl!

I went back to work this week! Brie is staying with my mom during the day and then once a week or so, she will stay with Matt's mom! We have the best child care available and we are so lucky!

Brie is being so helpful to mommy by sleeping through the night all the time. She even slept in today (Saturday) so that I could too! We are managing to stay just barely on top of things at home - so it's not complete chaos. Other than being a little tired, I am quite happy to be back with my students teaching!

This week Brie turns 3 mos. old. I can't believe it! She is just the sweetest little girl ever.

Big Changes

Brie is growing so much! This month she has done many things so far. We have taken walks, when the weather is nice; Brie went to her first Super Bowl party; we have also gone out to dinner a couple of times, most of which went smoothly.

Milestones include pushing up when on her tummy, smiling, reaching for toys, occasionally squealing, and the best thing ever - sleeping thru the night. She enjoys looking at her black and white animal flashcards, reading books with mommy and cuddling with daddy on weekend mornings. Brie is not yet proficient at pacifier sucking, but excels in pooping, managing to smear it all over her body. Matt pretty much thinks it is the worst thing about fatherhood - he just repeats over and over, "It's awful, it's awful!"

Matt and I are adapting to parenthood. New things we've learned include typing one-handed (as I'm doing now), making a bottle one-handed (I guess doing pretty much everything one-handed), watching tv on a very low volume, order dinner in, and have very little personal time!
