  • You bite your bottom lip
  • got your ears pierced at 4.5 months
  • you sleep 1-2 hour nap in the morning and a 2-4 hour nap in the afternoons
  • you fall asleep at 630-7 and wake at 6-630 in the mornings. You sleep through the night and don't wake once. Never have!
  • You don't eat by mouth still. We give you a bottle 1-2 times a day but you are not interested, and bite down on the nipple. You only swallow because you have to.
  • You are THE sweetest little person I have ever known. You are calm, and quiet most of the time.
  • You will play in your bassinet quietly while you wait for me to wake up.. sometimes an hour or longer!
  • You love tv

  • You usually only cry when you are tired. and really it's just a small fuss
  •  you vomit and dry heave 1-3 times a day
  • You are pretty good about keeping your ng tube in, but sometimes play with it, and pull it.
  • You are not very active, and your muscles are little weak, so you tire easily
  • you love kisses, and don't mind me kissing you all over all of the time
  • you will sit patiently while i take care of dinner,your sisters, really anything.
  • you have physical therapy,occupational therapy, and a developmental specialist come to the house each once a week to help you.
  • you run hot, and sweat often,
  • Still as tiny as ever only 10lbs
  • You can grasp at things you are given
  • You had so much hair, but it started falling out in clumps, so I buzzed it (yikes!) and now it looks so much better, and looks like it just grew in that way.
  • You are still in the bassinet in our room, and will be in with us for a long time.
  • You are petite, and have the cuuuutest baby body!
  • You have a coo laugh, but have only made that sound when you like mommy tickles or raspberries,
  • You are predictable. I know exactly what calms you, and what you need. 
  • You love routine.
  • All I have to do to put you to sleep is cradle hold you facing in and pat your bum for less than a minute. You protest yell just a bit (which means you are ready and tired) Then I lay you down, on your tummy and you are calm, and fall asleep within minutes.

What can I say? You are the perfect baby for me! I couldn't have picked out a better baby in the entire world! I mean that! We love you and can't wait to see you grow! (thank you Michelle for the dress I love that they all get to wear it!) Thank you also, Ashley for the floor drop! :)


  1. Enjoy reading your blog and learning about your family. Loved hearing about your daughter getting her little ears pierced. Think you were a smart mommy having her ears pierced when mommy can care for them, plus they look so darn cute with little earrings.

    I always dreamed of having a little girl with cute little pierced earrings. I was unsure doing it as an infant or not, but our pediatrician encouraged me to do it. Although her office didn’t do them, she gave me some tips for mom having their babies and little girls ears pierced for finding best person, place and type of earrings.

    There is nothing sweeter than a little girl with little pierced earrings poking through their hair especially with little pearls. Pearls are for little girls for sure. It makes them look so feminine and ingénue. Our daughter is six now and is girlie-girl and loves changing her earrings to match her dresses.

    Any moms looking for more research on “to pierce or not to pierce,” drop me an e-mail for our ped’s suggestions.

    1. Thank you, Amy! All three of my girls had their ears pierced young. I like it because, 1- they have always had them, and never usually mess with them, 2- They heal quick 3- they never remember the fast prick 4- it's not a right of passage 5- Everyone knows they are girls no matter what I put them in! lol And I agree. I too love little pearls!

  2. What a sweet little babe. I can't believe only 10 lbs! I loved the list you made about her. A lot of those little details we forget over time. Miss you!

    1. Kathryn! I totally forget everything! If I didn't have pictures and videos I would forget so much. I love that this way I can look back in my archives and see what each kid was doing at say 2 years old.. :)

  3. This post makes me happy and sad - happy because I love that little girl and these pictures are so gorgeous of her! But sad, because I don't get to be there to watch her grow up!! I miss you guys! :( I am so glad you write on your blog, so I can see your sweet girlies!

    1. I still can't believe your gone!! How did the move go? I have yet to check instagram lately to see! I hope the drive wasn't too awful! I can't wait to see your new place on ig.!!
