Annabelle is 3 months old.

Hi Blog Readers,
It's been over a month since I've blogged. Obviously you know that, because you've been checking my blog over and over hoping for an update, right? Or you're just reading this now on your google-reader and you had forgotten about my blog. Or perhaps you clicked the link on facebook and this is your first time to my blog ever and won't ever read it again.
Either way, I am going to give a good and long update... {or perhaps just a short one, because the shorter it is, the sooner I can go to bed!}

Annabelle turned 3 months old yesterday! She's not a newborn anymore. She is simply the best thing that has ever come my way. I am constantly amazed with the way she learns and grows. She has changed so much over the last month. Here's a little bit about her...

She coo's.
She smiles.
She growls.
She giggles.
She screams.
She holds toys.
She kicks her legs.
She reaches for things.
She makes eye contact.
She stares at her own hand.
She loves to move in her swing.
She loves to get her diaper changed.
She loves bath time and getting all wet.
She does not enjoy changing her clothes.
She loves looking at herself in the mirror.
She loves listening to music with her daddy.
She loves being read to and staring at pictures.
She cries if she's in her car seat, unless it's moving.
She has slept through the night 5 times and counting.
She takes up all of my time and energy and I love her!
So much.

I hope that gives you a little glimpse into my baby's life. There is so much more I could say, but that would take time. And wouldn't you know it, that's not one thing I have extra of. I love blogging, but it hasn't been a high priority in my spare time... I am usually doing dishes, napping, laundering, eating or trying to squeeze a shower into my little breaks. 
Chase is still working on the bathroom downstairs in between school and the snow.
Life is busy but life is good.

Xoxo, Brittany

ps: i got an iphone as an after-christmas present... i love it, but i rarely pull out my real camera these days, here are a few pictures of my baby... taken with my phone:
sticking her tongue out is a favorite thing to do.

i know it's mean to take a picture of her crying, but look how cute she is.

bathtime in the sink.

this is first day she started sucking on her own hand.

one of the few pictures of me with her.

i love seeing her smile with her tongue out.

this is the first onsie me and chase bought her when i was pregnant.

this is the first time i saw her reach to grab something.

those are her toes she's playing with.

her shape is so cute.

she's SO long.

and lastly, this is the first picture we got of her smiling.

i am merely repeating what has already been said, but she is the most beautiful baby!! i just want to hold her! love all the pictures, and love the tile in your bathroom! did you guys put that in or was it already there? and one more question... how do you put the borders around the picture and text? thanks for taking the time from your sleep schedule to update us!

that confused me for a minute lyndsey, because chase just tiled our new bathroom's shower and floor-- but that sink bath picture of annabelle was at my mom's house- i love her tile though!

the borders just show up when i put in a caption. in the new editor, when you upload a photo, click on the photo in the blog draft and a tool bar pops up for you to be able to change the size of your picture and add a caption! hope that helps.

Annabelle is so stinking cute! I want her! Congrats on having the most adorable baby ever. I love crying pictures, you feel so bad taking them instead of comforting them but they are so cute.
