3 Months Old

I'm all girl!

Wow! Time has flown by. I cannot believe this amazing little girl has been in this world for three months. I am amazed every day that Eva is ours and by how much I love her. The past few weeks have been my favorite for sure. She is so much fun, sleeping anywhere from seven to nine hours a night and giggling at everyone. Two of her favorite things are stretching and looking in mirrors. She will inevitably smile at a mirror and has a ten minute stretching routine in the mornings. We swaddle her at night so her arms are down by her side and she loves it, but in the mornings when I unwrap her, they shoot up above her head and she just stretches from her tippy toes to her fingers forever! We have it on camera because it is such a signature move.

Eva loves her bath and bibs. She crams the bibs in her mouth and chews on them. She has started laughing some and that is our only real milestone. I don't know if we will ever push up or crawl though because she hates being on her belly to play. She would rather lay on her back and talk and play. I will probably cause her great delays in that area, but I can't do it if she cries!
On a totally different note, we found out Lucy, our other little girl, has hypothyroid. She began losing hair on her sides about four or five months ago and has always been a bit of a roly poly not to mention lazy. Well, we finally found a vet who figured it out and now she dropping pounds by the day and growing her hair back! Shortly after we found out about her thyroid she got a cyst on her tail! So, in addition to having to give her medicine every day for the rest of her life, we had to have that drained and it is not pretty! Grant was performing nursing duties on her every night so that she would not have to stay in the kitchen. We love her, but man, she has cost more than the child at this point!
All in all the last few months have been the most incredible experience of my life. I know it will get better, and harder too, but I am looking forward to raising Eva with Grant, and watching her grow into a beautiful, Godly little girl.
The hardest thing is going to be starting work next week, because I will have to leave her all day. Pray for me.

She is so cute! I want to see the video of her stretching. I will pray for you. I know that will be a tough transition for you. Miss you sweetie!
