Happy Halle - 3 Months

Goodness. Someone make the time stop!! Halle's life is flashing before my eyes! Can you believe my little baby is already 3 months!? When I think of a 3 month old, I think "baby," not "infant" anymore. Sigh. It goes too fast. 

I've started to call this precious baby, Happy Halle, because she has got to be the happiest baby I have ever seen! She is FULL of smiles, coos, and adoration! She beams at pretty much everyone, and squeals in delight when anyone talks to her. I mean, really, after having a crabby baby (God knows, I LOVE Noelle...), it's so wonderful to have a baby that actually smiles!

She's already a hefty 14 pounds (can you BELIEVE that!?) She eats like a champion and sleeps like one too. We are so blessed! With Noelle, I fed her only from bottles at this point on, so I know how many ounces she drank and how often. With Halle, there are no schedules. She lets me know when she's hungry and she sleeps when she's tired. She falls asleep on her own and doesn't need to be soothed to sleep. Halle seems to eat roughly about 5x a day, takes one extremely long nap (3 hours) after lunch, cat naps throughout the day, and goes to bed every night around 9pm. 

She loves music, watching anything with bright colors (like Noelle in neon tuts running around the room), and likes to suck and chew on her fingers/hands. She's not at all fussy, but does like to be held constantly. If no one's holding her, that's when you will hear her. She's vocal about it, but her cries are nothing compared to the colic cries we are used to. Noelle adores her little sister and dotes her on quite a bit. Halle likes it, but you can tell it's a bit smothering for her when she tries to move away and can't, lol.

Halle's other likes: 
sleeping on her side and/or stomach
her pacifier
her swing
hugs and kisses
sleeping with white noise and a fan blowing on her

Halle does not care for:
car rides
tummy time (although she is very good at it!)

Can someone make my baby stay a baby longer please? I don't want this to ever go away! Knowing that Halle is my last baby, I am trying to soak up every last minute. I cuddle with her every chance I get and stare at her every night. Joey loves her to the moon and back too. Lucky for us, big sister Noelle also loves her baby sister. She always asks about her, and wants to know where she is at all times. We are all so in love with our Happy Halle.

Fun in The Sun! June Recap

Wow, what a June we had! Maybe it's because I have two kids to lug and tote around, but man, was it a hot one! We enjoyed ourselves this past month with lots of outdoor fun, trips to the park, and lots of swimming! Here's a little recap of all our fun in the sun! Looking forward to the rest of our awesome summer!

Here we are hanging out at Snail Lake park! I'm pretty sure we frequent this playground once or twice a week! Poor Halle has no hats that really fit her little head yet! Hehe.

 We had plenty of picnics outside too! You can see Halle really enjoys it, lol. I don't know if she's upset because she's not being held or if it's because I made her match her sister. ;)

Water table fun!!

Noelle hanging out with Anya! (Who she LOVES.)

Noelle is obsessed with tee-ball.

After a little swim with Vivi!

Here is Noelle with her new trike I found for her. It's so awesome - it's like half bike, half stroller. We love it! She usually sings a song while I push her around that goes something like this: "I ride my bike! I ride my bike! I ridin' my biiiiiikeeee!"

Just splashing away in my super cool pool mama got me.

 Not the most stunning photo of me, but this pretty much sums up majority of my mornings; sitting in the shade with Halle, watching Noelle. :)

 Sometimes I have to join them, because it's so hot! Gotta love Minnesota; coldest winters, hottest summers!

At Wilson park, another favorite.

A little date at Fresh Picked Pizza!

Every time we go to Target, Noelle needs/wants/demands a picture next to this cardboard Rapunzel. Every. Single. Time. I lost count of how many pictures I have of this same pose.

Snail Lake playground again! 

Halle taking a little snooze in the shade.

You want a knuckle sandwich?

Annnnd, I'm bored.

Gaotah met us one day at the park! That was super fun! The girls love their Aunty Gaotah!

One out of four of our strollers...

Yes, I braved it one day and took the girls to Como Zoo by myself. 

Waiting for the Sparky the Seal show to start.

Not impressed.

Joey's cousin Brianna came over one day, which Noelle loved. They did each other's nails. :)

The girls' first bath "together." More fun for Noelle than Halle. 

Can you believe it? A picture of the parents! :) Here we are before going to the Larkin Dance Recital this year!

My matching sweeties!

Noelle was cooling Halle off. ;)

SO much fun! I LOVE being home with my two little girlies, and I love this weather! Hoping July and August are just as amazing!
