Hey friends!! How are you? It has been kind of crazy around here lately. Our little girlie turned 3 months on Sunday, which just happened to be our 6th wedding anniversary too! Jonny and I have been together 12 and a half years and I can’t believe we have already been married for 6 years.. time is just flying by. And now my little baby is already 3 months… does that mean I don’t have a newborn anymore? Yall, my heart cannot handle it. I need her to stop growing right now. But, I will say, each day gets more fun with her and she has really become so much more aware this last month, which has been really cute. She has started really noticing and following the doggies which is too sweet.
This dress was my sister’s dress when she was a little girl.
We took her for a check up last week and she was almost 13 lbs and in the 76 percentile for weight… LOL… let’s just say this girlie has come a long way from the 10th percentile when she was born… she likes to eat!! Her little chunky arms and legs just kill me. 🙂
My mom has been in town the last week and yall, it has been so wonderful. We are sending Mimi a formal invitation to move in with us. LOL. She just loves little Francy and is the biggest help with her. We are so so lucky.
I officially went back to work last week, which is so bittersweet. I can’t believe my maternity leave has come to an end, but I am excited to be back in a routine and on a schedule. My mom has been here helping us with the transition. I work from home (prior to covid) and my husband is working from home (due to covid) so it hasn’t been too big of an adjustment. Next week we have a nanny starting to watch Francy each day while we work so it will be really nice to have her with us all day so I can sneak some kisses. I don’t think I would be able to go into an office every and leave her… I know that is just so so hard on new mommas. I am very fortunate for our situation right now.
She will just lay on her little play mat and stare at the fan while I workout.. it is wonderful. 🙂 Doggies always nearby… ha!
She loves to snuggle us in our bed before it is time to go night night. It is the sweetest time of the day. The biggest change this month was her sleeping!!! She has been officially sleping through the night the last 2 or 3 weeks… I can’t remember, I am still trying to catch up on my sleep. 😉 She typically goes to bed around 9 (give or take an hour) and sleeps until around 6 (give or take an hour) so usually about 8 to 9 hours straight and wakes up to eat (I breastfeed her at this feeding) then goes back to bed until 8:30 or 9am. She just dropped her midnight and 3am feeding all in the same week and we are all loving it. 😉 I have no tips or tricks… we just follow her schedule for now and that has been working great. I was wondering how I was going to survive another night of not sleeping and then all of a sudden she just slept through the night.
Francy loves her Mimi!!
Jon planned a date night for us last week and had our friends babysit and we went to a nice dinner on the riverwalk. It was so nice to have a night to ourselves.
My mom dresses Francy up everyday. She finally has enough hair for a bow. My real life baby doll I always dreamed of. 🙂
Francy got to go to her first high school football game and you guys, she loved it so much. She just watched the cheerleaders and loved looking around the entire time. She was so happy. She is now able to just sit in our laps and hold her head up by herself.
My mom had never been to Austin so last Saturday we took a day trip down there and got a nice lunch and then went on a little boat cruise. It was a nice little getaway.
Francy enjoyed the cruise too! 😉
Then we came home and were all exhausted. Ha! I told you she loves our bed. 🙂
Francy doesn’t dislike much (she is a very easy baby, thank you Lord!!!) and actually enjoys tummy time most of the time. She dislikes sitting still, waiting for a bottle, or being cold after the bath – hey, I do too. 😉
That is all for now! I will leave you with this funny picture of Francy in this outfit my sister wore as a baby. As you can tell, we are all about the throw back outfits!! Too much fun!!
Another wonderful month with our girl and we just love every moment with her. She is just the sweetest thing and I can’t wait to see the fun changes this next month will bring!
