Leighton Kate is 3 months old!!

Can you believe it?!?! My little nugget is already 3 months old?!?! I thought time flew by with E, the second was in even worse....she's not my newborn anymore :(....can you have baby fever with a baby?!
Don't answer that....

On to nugget's 3rd month!
Lei Lei, you are by far the happiest baby I have every seen. 
You smile and coo and talk and smile some more alllllllllll day long! It truly makes my heart so happy! I find myself just talking with you all the time...when I should be cleaning or doing laundry or working out....but hey, you are my baby girl and maybe my last, so I am going to soak it alllll in no matter what the house looks like! :) 

I mean, how can you resist this?!

You are still an awesome eater and an even better sleeper these days!

You go down at about 8:15-8:30 and sleep until 6:30 or 7am!! Some mornings you may wake up closer to 6am, but if I sneak in and give you your paci you go right back down!
Speaking of your paci....you have found a back up....you found your thumb....much to Mommy's dismay... :).
You go back and forth between thumbs, but you will still take your paci when it is given...so Momma is still trying!! :) 

You are pretty much done with the newborn clothes (as mommy cries...), but that just means we get to wear all your cute and fabulous "big girl" clothes!
(Mommy looooves to coordinate!)
You are still in size one diapers, but we are not far from twos at all!
You are getting 6 ounces 4 times a day and 6 1/2 ounces at bedtime. I think we are close to increasing that as well, you love your food and let me know when you need more!

I don't know your exact weight, but I do know you have definitely chunked up in the past few weeks and I absolutely LOVE it!!

In big news, you have been holding your head up like crazy! 
 You did it a little at 2 months, but now you are a rock star at it! It's crazy how much control you have over it. My big girl!

And while you can't completely hold it on your own, obviously, you have started to hold and grab your bottle - it is quite adorable!


We also had your first day at the pool....you slept the whole time in the shade, but that doesn't me you can't look fabulous in your bathing suit!!


You got to spend more time with you GG!

Mommy went on her first big trip without you....3 nights away from my girls....to see my other girls at the beach!
 But don't worry, Daddy and Nana sent me lots of pics to ensure you were happy as can be!

I brought you back a little t-shirt....you were sure to tell me I had to take you next time! :)

You loooove your bath time, and give me the best giggles and dances in your little tub!
I heard your first big belly laugh the other night...I tried so hard to get you to do it again on camera for Daddy....but you are sure to keep those just for special times! :) 

You are a gem, my sweet Leighton Kate! Your Daddy and I are completely smitten with you and your happy grins!
 Keep smiling, baby girl, it makes the world a happier place! :)

XOXO, Momma & Daddy





Leighton's 2 month update!


So I am toooooootally failing in the blogging department. Two under two is no joke, they keep me on my toes! :) 

I really want to keep up with Leighton's monthly updates at least....after all, her sister has them, she must have them too - right?!

I took her 2 months old pics but failed on the post....we'll just do it at her 3 months...mkay?!

Here is my little nugget at 2 months, isn't she the cutest!?!??!

You had your first holiday, Easter!
Momma looooooves an Easter basket....and apparently so does your sister!

We even took you to your very first church service for Easter. Even though you had a huge blowout in the middle of the service, you were a perfect angel!

You started to share your beautiful smile with us so early! And we of course ABSOLUTELY love it, cannot get enough of it!

You are still such an awesome sleeper! You officially started sleeping all the way through the night at about 6-7 weeks, and Momma is very thankful for that!
You are still in size 1 diapers, with a size 2 at night....sister pees a lot!!
You are wearing newborn and 3 month clothes right now....and most of the newborns are about done!
At your 2 month check up you weighed 10 pounds, 10 ounces (32% - little bit!), you were 23 inches long (74%), and your head was 15.5 inches (82%). My baby girls and their big heads!


You are a big eater, we started giving 5 1/2 ounces with every feeding and quickly moved up to 6 for your bedtime bottle, as you wanted more! :) 
and big sister looooooves to help!
Speaking of your sister, she loooooves you to the moon! 
Every morning when she wakes up she asks for Dada, Lei Lei (that's what she calls you) Mayee  (maylie) and Omh (otto).
Most mornings we have your 7am bottle, E's milk, and Momna's coffee in bed with cartoons. That might be my favorite part of the day.

We attemped to go to the zoo one day, but it was crazy busy so we opted for Puckett's with Addie Mae and then a little shopping! :) 

We enjoyed your first Kentucky Derby Party and you had a fabulous time hanging out on the porch with Momma and sister!

We went to your first birthday party, it was for Miss Eleanor! And you were a huge hit!! All the babies wanted to play with you....I also think you got your first flirt from a sweet little boy named Jack, all he wanted to do was hug and kiss you!



We also celebrated your Nana & Papa's 40th anniversary! We through them a surprise party and it was so much fun! 
You and your sister stayed up waaaaay past your bedtimes, but you were soooo very good! You made lots of friends! :) 


That weekend was also Mother's day....and you and your sister and Daddy surprised me with coffee and gifts in bed!

Then the next day you and Nana surprised me with breakfast in bed.....you girls spoil me! :) 

And your Nana spoils you too! :) 


You finally got t meet your Great Grandma Kelly, or as we like to call her GG!

                 
And I do believe you two are kindred spirits, she can calm you down almost quicker than I can! And you two just chat and chat all day long. I absolutely love to see you two together!!

Speaking of seeing you will someone....your sister and you are the most perfect sight to see. Every times she kisses you, or asks to hold you, or feeds you, or says your name, my heart could just burst!!



And you look so much like her!!! :) 
Can you tell who is who?!



Your latest nicknames are...nugget, Lei Lei, boo boo face (I know, I hear myself...but I just can't help it!), Lady Kate, and Daddy's favorite - Big Smiley!


Leighton, you are such an amazing and perfect little baby. I thought your sister was an easy baby, but you take the cake! You make us think we should do this over and over again! :) 
We are so blessed and forever changed since you came into this world. I don't know what we would do without you!!
Mommy....
and Daddy love you soooooooo much!!

XOXO,  Momma
