3 month birthday!

3 months ago today sweet Karlena joined our family!


Karlena has grown so much and I can't wait to see at her 4 mo appt how big she is. She has pretty much outgrown her 0-3 mo clothing and is wearing 3-6 mo with not much room to grow. I think that she will be just like her brothers!

She has made it through her first week of daycare and overall it didn't go too bad. She doesn't take much from the bottle during the day...about 8 oz total. This means that at night she is nursing all the time to catch up but I am just enjoying the mom time I get with her.

She, like her brothers, thinks that she needs to eat every 2-3 hrs during the night. Most nights I lose track of what time she is getting up but I know she is not sleeping for long stretches of time. Somehow though I don't feel too tired during the day and I know that this too shall pass!

She is at that stage where she loves to talk to us and her smiles just melt my heart! Sometimes she gets really excited and it looks like she just wants to tell us what she is thinking so badly!

Karlena is loved by her brothers, Gabriel especially just doats over her. It is really sweet to see and I hope that as she grows up they will continue to take care of her like this!

We are just blessed by her addition to our family and can't believe how fast the last 3 months have gone!
