She's already 3 months old? How is that possible?

Meredith is 3 months old today. Can you believe it?? I can't either. The sleepless nights must have blurred my memory because it seems like she was just born yesterday but according to the calendar I had our little ladybug exactly three months ago.

She seems to have made it through her fussy phase which is good. One night Josh asked me "Will you read me the newborn return policy on the receipt from the hospital?"

Meredith is now back home with me since I was a casualty of "spending cutbacks" at my company on June 18th. Even though she was only in school for two weeks, her teachers were able to put her on a eating and sleeping schedule that has made my life so much easier!

She smiles, laughs and coos all the time now and when one of us walks into the room and makes eye contact with her, she waves her arms and legs in excitement. She loves to be the center of attention and wants to be held all the time.

She is finally sleeping through the night! Can I get a "Whoo hoo?" Mornings are still my favorite time with my children. I lay in bed every morning and cuddle with Jonah and Meredith. I am thankful that I now have the opportunity to spend this quality time with them. These are the moments that I'll cherish forever.

Meredith has transitioned from being a "newborn" to being a "baby." It will be an exciting month as we continue to watch her grow and develop!

"newborn return policy"? Does it extend to three-year-olds... because I have one that I've definitely considered putting on eBay a time or two. haha!

Sorry about the cutback at work, but the time right now is so priceless. She's growing up so fast.

awwww.... that last picture is frame able. SO sweet. Can you tell her to stop growing so fast?

I had to laugh at what your hubby said. Mine always wanted to get the kids a Tiffany's bracelet that said "Return me to Hospital" LOL.
