The night we had Everly, Marty and I sat in my hospital bed in a daze, exhausted beyond belief and watching our little beauty sleep. “She’s going to go to the Pumpkin Patch, ” Marty said, curling her tiny hand around his finger. They were the first real plans we had made for our little girl, when she was barely just a few hours old. Three months later, we got to follow through with those plans and were lucky enough to snap a few memorable photos before Ev konked out.
And since it’s been a while since my last post, here’s a quick update on our own little pumpkin:
12. Weeks. Old
What Ev’s loving these days: watching Daddy put on his colorful ties in the morning, giggling at her Mama making faces and singing songs to her, watching the pups romp & play, and of course her most favorite thing – boobs!
What we’re loving these days: seeing Everly’s big belly laughs for the first time, how she leaves her sweet baby smell on her blankets and sometimes our clothes, and that big, beautiful smile that we dream about all day while we’re at work.
Developmental milestones: We have a chatterbox on our hands! She loves to talk if she thinks that someone is listening (and I can listen to that all day long.) She’s also reaching out and starting to grab for things and trying her darndest to sit up like a big girl.
Sleeping: Like a champ! As of a few days ago, she’s going about 7 to 8 hours sleeping straight through the night, which Mama is loving!
What we’re excited about: Ev’s first Halloween! (Stay tuned for a Halloween post with Ev in costume). Can you guess what she’s dressing up as?
