Miriam: Three Months

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Well, my dear dear daughter, you're already 1/4 of the way through your first year! Additionally, 3 months brought my return to work. You are still the sweetest little thing.

Your Daddy thought you slept way more than your brothers, but that's definitely changed in the last month. You've been very engaged and alert.

You're still rocking out some awesome hair and celebrated your first Father's Day. You might not know it yet, but you've got the best one ever. You'll see.

You aren't the biggest cuddler, at least not for me. So let me tell you, this nap, was glorious, because after I closed my eyes for this shot, we truly did nap!

You seem to have a similar temperament to Ezra, which honestly I'd have no qualms with. I love my Isaac, but his personality in a girl version, [shudder] I don't think I could handle it! There's enough time for defiance when you get older, much, much older.
@lovesoflife asked me #WIDN, so here I am with #mirijoy just after waking up from nursing. That smile, I die.
Speaking of your brothers, I had fun dressing you in a pair of hand-me-down overalls from them!

And, putting you in a dress that I wore when I just as little as you.
We entered into the world of "vintage Leah baby clothes" today. And I died from adorableness. Until #mirijoy spit up all over it, hah!

You bonded with your brothers, who still just dote on you!
"Mama! I got a smile! Mary smiled at me!"

And worked on tummy time, getting more and more lift!

You got to celebrate Ezra's birthday.

And seriously gave me some of the best smiles!

You celebrated your first 4th of July.

And then, before we knew it, I was back at work.
The reason I get up in the morning. No, literally she's the reason I get up.  Annnnnnnd why my sense of humor has dropped to ridiculous standards. #idonteventhinkitsfunnyanymore #ivetypedtoomuchnow #ihavetopostit #mirijoy

Happy 3 months sweet girl!
Today's date with Jillian Michaels was completely derailed by all three children, so the workout clothes proved an unnecessary choice today. That said, I majorly traded up from JM by getting some face time with my #mirijoy.

We're so glad you're in our family!

I have been following your instagram and blog since miri was born and I love watching her grow. She is truly stunning and I can only hope my future daughter is as beautiful as her :)

That hair! Leah, I just die over her hair! My girls are/were practically bald. Isn't the time going so fast? I can't believe Amelia is 4 months. Miri is just too adorable, I love it.

Melanie said...

Julia Goolia said...

Wow, three months. Her tongue is freaking hilarious--can't wait to watch her grow even more!

Kier said...

Wow - she is just the most adorable girl ever.

Laura said...

She easily wins the award for best baby hair EVER.

Erin said...

Happy three months, Miri! She's just so beautiful! :)

Murdock's mama said...

Love all of her photos...she's such a doll! :)

Joi said...

She's a beauty! Makes me want another, but only if she/he has Miri's temperament. I don't think I could tolerate another Theron Drake.

Love these photos! My baby girl was born 4 days after yours and has just as much hair (but red-brown)----please, please share where you get all her great bows and such!

Jen said...

She is just so cute!

ashavenue said...

Unbelievably cute!!

Melissa said...

It goes without saying... that girl is BEAUTIFUL! And I love how you dress her in such pretty outfits without being the typical pink & purple. I never knew how adorable and feminine greens and yellows could be! :)

Found your blog via Bower Power. Your children are darling, and what a head of hair little Miri has been blessed with. :) Adorable!

So cute! Where do you get her headbands?

Unknown said...

Seriously... where are her hair bands from? My own little baby girl has some crazy hair that needs stylish accessories!
