2, 184 hours / 91 days / 13 weeks / 3 MONTHS

To say "I love Lola" would be the understatement of the year.

I am absolutely, completely, totally and utterly in love with this girl.

My daughter.


I still love saying that.

Lola has been such a special addition to our family. Today, she is three months old. She is getting so big so quickly, and she is doing so many things already!

She is trying to roll over.

She can rock a hair bow/flower on her bald head like nobody's business.

She loves to smile at me while she is nursing, subsequently letting all of the milk in her mouth leak out and dribble down her cheeks.

She loves to be talked to, and usually will light up with a big smile.

She sleeps about 8 hours--from 10ish to 6ish--at night.
*love. her.*

She loves her Grandmothers.

She would have loved this Grandmother as well, for whom she was named.
Of that, I am more than certain.

She can fall asleep anywhere, but loves Daddy's cozy arms and chest.

She is just shy of 11 pounds.
She seems huge to me, but almost every one comments on how tiny she is.

She has three of the cutest, most amazing and loving brothers in the history of the world.

She digs her slings.

She looks so amazingly cute in Baby Legs....

....even when she's not so happy.

She is the most smiley first thing in the morning, and is smiling and 'talking' like crazy.

She's like, the smartest three-month old in the history of the world. She can already count....



Oh, and she loves to chew on her fingers. *grin*

She has super long, curly and very girlie eyelashes.

{And I think she is just so pretty. Side note.}

Her Mommy She loves hats....

She has big dimples when she smiles!

She is normally very good-natured, but can throw a mean fit every once and a while.

She quickly returns to her normally happy self, however.

"Awww, Mommy....I'm sorry I threw that fit. I luuuuuuuuuuv you. Please forgive me?"

She is a b@@b baby. No bottles and no pacifiers accepted here!

However, she is--already--an accomplished thumb-sucker.

Seriously--it doesn't get much cuter....

...well, maybe it does.

She loves to take walks...

...and usually finds her thumb midway....

....and is fast asleep by the time we get back home.

She loves Daddy....

...and Mommy....

....and the saying on the wall in her room could not be any more true:

Lola, we love you so much, baby girl. You are everything we hoped and prayed for, and so much more. Happy three months!

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him."
I Samuel 1:27

Love all the pics, outfits, baby legs, hats, etc.! I especially love the verse, that is Caden's verse as well:)

I am intrigued by the sling, fill me in please. I had one with Cole and liked it sort of but it has since been recalled. I need a new one for this baby desperately! I am seriously thinking I need to fly up for a coupon lesson, sling lesson, what else?!?!?!

Thanks for the precious post, made me smile :)

Love you friend!

Karie said...

Its A Corny Life... said...

Tears in my eyes. My favorite post EVER!

Julie said...

She's SO flippin' cute. I totally can't wait to meet all of you.

Faith said...

A. It's definitely time to include her in your blog header. Or perhaps a picture of just her?? :)
B. Who do you think she looks the most like?

Jen said...

Love that little girl! She is getting so big (sniff, sniff). I love the pictures of her "counting". Give her a kiss for me!

This is such a sweet post, she is adorable! I love all the pictures, but I'm a little partial to the thumb sucking ones. Livie sucked her thumb too and I love the pictures I have of her! Enjoy this time with her, it goes by sooo fast! (I know you know that, I'm just a little sentimental today since it's Oliva's 7th b-day).

Kathy said...

There are absolutely no words to express how much I love this post. NONE. But ohhhh how I love it. And ohhh how precious sweet Lola is!!! Beautiful. She's all of you in a precious pink bundle.

Confession: I sometimes say the word 'daughter' to myself when no one is around. :) {Hey, I live on a farm, no one sees me, and if my kids do, they know I'm nuts anyway :)}

We celebrate you Lola girl!

LOVE this post! She is too cute and I do think you truly are **in love** with this doll. 1 Samuel 1:27 was the scripture I put on our Christmas Card the year our youngest was born with B&W pictures of all of us w/him. AND I read the scripture leading up to that one for his Baptism . :) Guess WHAT HIS NAME IS??? hehehe.... ;) Blessings to you and your sweet, precious family....BABY LEGS are the cutest too BTW!
