3 Months Old

I can't even believe that my little peanut is 3 months old. I feel like she is so little, then I look back at pictures when she was born, and she is so big now! Where does the time go. She is so much fun!
Here are some of the things she does as a 3 month old:

*Sucks her thumb, and her fingers
*Loves standing up
*Giggled for the first time
*Constantly smiles
*Sleeps through the night!
*Loves sitting up (with help)
*Always making noises and 'talking'

I could never have imagined how amazing it is to be a mom. I love watching Clint be her dad, he is so wonderful at it, and she loves him so much!

Cancer Walk

One of our friend's little girls, Brinley, was diagnosed with cancer a week after her second birthday. She fought long and hard, and has beat cancer. CureSearch does a cancer walk every year to raise money for research to try and end childhood cancer. Though Brinley beat it, there are many children who aren't as lucky. We wanted to support Brinley and her family. Along with all of those other families with children who have lost their battle with cancer, who are fighting cancer, and who have beat it. Clint, my mom, Sophie, and I went to the CureSearch walk this year. It was really emotional and touching. I feel like there is so much more we could all be doing. Nothing about this disease is fair, espcially tiny children having to go through this. During the program before the walk, the released white balloons for all of those angels who have lost their fight. We were so blessed to be a part of this experience.

Thumb Sucker

Sophie has now mastered the art of sucking her thumb. At first she would put her thumb in her mouth and her ingers would cover her whole face. Then she figured out how to bend her fingers a little, but would poke her eyes. Then the other day I went to get her up for the day, and ta-da, she had figured it out. Now that is all she wants to do. She kept turning away from her food the other night to put her thumb in her mouth. She also loves shoving all of her fingers in her mouth at once. And sucking on her blanket or any loose clothing. She isn't too interested in toys yet. Also, she is talking so much lately, always making noise. And sleeping through the night, hallelujah!!nShe is so stinkin awesome, we can't get enough of her!!
