Alice is 3 months old!

Alice you turned 3 months on 8/25/13.  We have loved having you in our family for three whole months.  You are a delightful baby!  You are easy going, you have been since birth.  I've continually waited for this to change - thinking this is just a fleeting babymoon period - but it hasn't so I'm ready to guess that this is just your personality.  Let me tell you, sweet girl, it is lovely.  You are lovely. 

You are still on the go with this crazy family of yours - everywhere we go you go as well and it makes for some busy days!  

Your sister adores you, and wants to "hold and cuddle" you all the time.  Your face lights up when you see her.  It's completely adorable.  

You are still sleeping well and are a nursing champion just like your sister.  Can't wait to find out how much you have grown next month at your 4 month visit.  I think you are on track to follow your sissy's pattern of getting chunky quickly :)

We went to the state fair twice this month and you were a trooper both times.  Sleeping on the go, nursing wherever we could find a bench, and staying out late.  You're my little baby side-kick and you seem to just enjoy taking it all in.

Reaching out and batting/grabbing things is your new favorite thing to do, like most 3 month olds... and that will keep you entertained for a while!

You take a pacifier sometimes - when you feel like it - and just yesterday you happily drank an ounce of mama milk from a bottle that daddy gave you.  Again, you just seem to be easy going and flexible, and for that we are grateful :)

Thank you for sleeping, eating, and just generally being awesome to have around.  You make our family feel complete, Alice Rose!
