Three Months!

Last Wednesday, our dear Zooey turned three months old! It has been an exciting month with lots of milestones reached. She is more interactive and fun every day. Soon after her two month birthday she began smiling intermittently and now she has developed into a generally easy going smiley baby who can be distracted into a smile even when tired or hungry....most of the time. She also giggles which is awesome. Love the giggles.


I know something you don't know......

I think there is something to the theory I've read so much about that infants have a rough few days prior to acquiring a new "skill". Last weekend was really rough- she was so tired but couldn't sleep no matter how much we tried to help. Her eating was totally disorganized. She was withdrawn and not interactive probably because of the former two issues. I was really bummed because that was our last "free" weekend of the summer with neither of us working. But I think Zooey was hard at work developing hand/eye and foot/eye coordination because now she can swat at objects, and can spin the toys on her Baby Bjorn chair intentionally with her hands OR her feet! I don't see her all that much during playtime (which is a huge bummer, mostly I feed her and get her to sleep), but I don't recall much lead up to this. One day she's just staring at the toys, the next she's very clearly making them move. Crazy!

Still in staring mode here.....

Babybison continues to meet and visit with the important people in her life. Aunt Bonnie and Uncle David came in from Denver to meet her which was very special. We even went out to dinner at a nice restaurant and aside from 90 seconds of crying (just enough time for us to get the bottle out) she was an angel. Only two patrons even realized she was there! And Cousin Karin came back for a half marathon in Chicago and some quality Z time as well!

We haven't been on many adventures this month with me being back at work but we hope to get to the Botanic Gardens soon for a repeat photo shoot, this time with Zooey OUTSIDE of the womb. And we're getting to the point in her cuteness and interactiveness where we should think about our next formal photo shoot. Without it being planned, it's hard to catch us all not in our pajamas or work-out clothes!

4th of July at the Boyles
We are so lucky to have my mom staying with us this summer. I hope she is enjoying it as much as we are! In addition to being the best possible caretaker to Zooey (Z is in much better hands with my mom than she would be with me!), she's is getting some great shots of our little girl. I'm so grateful we'll have her photos since we are way too busy to get many of our own!

Naked baby on the loose!

That's it for now! Life is too busy right now especially in the middle of the night. I look forward to the day when our little one acquires the "skill" of sleeping for more than two to three hours at a time on a regular basis. She had one glorious night when she was up only at 1 am and 5 am but otherwise she is keeping me up WAY WAY WAY too much. Thank god she's so darn cute!
