Three Months Old

Our little Pumpkin Pie-ya is 3 months old!! We love her to bits. She is super laid back and predictable. She eats at 4am, 9am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 8pm. She has two 45 minute naps and one 2 hour one.

She loves laying on her back and reaching for toys. She loves interacting with people and her brothers get her biggest smiles.
She goes to bed easily now. After being up for 1.5 hours, we just put her in her crib and she cries for 5 minutes and then goes to sleep. No rocking or swaddling or anything special. Such a change!!
She is also no longer a super pooper!! Only 1-2 times a day. Yahoo!
She is desperately trying to find her thumb but happily sucks on her fists in the meantime.
She loves bath time.
She spits up all the time. We both go through several outfits (and a lot of receiving blankets!) every day and she almost always has a bib on. It often causes her to cough but it doesn't seem to bother her at all.
She makes the cutest cooing sounds. Love it!!!
Her eyes are a beautiful blue colour and I really hope they stay that way!!

I am loving every minute with her. Seriously. Maybe it's because I know she's our last (well, probably!) or because she's so laid back or because I've done this twice before or because I've had full time help for the past 7 weeks (!!!!) but ya, she's great:) Seriously, I would HIGHLY recommend your husband having paternity leave if you have 3 kids. Makes it so much more enjoyable!

I also have to say that I'm fine with her not taking a bottle (for now!) I love breastfeeding her. It's a time where I have to sit down and put my feet up and just stare and her while she plays with my shirt and I hold her hand.

Yay for babies.
Yay for a healthy babe and a healthy momma.
So thankful!

Love, Louise

PS Gary and the boys have strept throat so I'm sooooooooooooooooo thankful Nya and I did not get it.

PSS I am actually NOT loving every minute. Today we were stuck in traffic going over the Port Mann bridge (oh man, I want to punch that bridge out!!) and Nya was screaming and Kai was going to puke at any second. Not fun.


  1. SOOOO beautiful! and great to read about all the things she's learning/doing :)

  2. Just catching up on blogs! Happy belated Birthday! We love Harrison, we went at Spring Break for one night with the kids just too play in the pools. The other beauty is that it's close to Chilliwack.

    And..Nya is a little doll. I'm having serious baby itch right now but know that three is probably a good number.. but..


  3. super duper cute! I'm so glad you got an easygoing baby this time; you deserve it! <3
