3 Months of Heaven on Earth

Ella Grace is 3 months old. Ella Grace is 3 months old. Ella Grace is 3 months old. I keep repeating that over and over as I look at my sleeping little baby. I can't believe three months have gone by. I have been a mommy for three months. Sean has been a daddy for three months. We have been parents for three months. We have been the sole providers and protectors of a little life for three months and not only is she ok, she is thriving!

Her three month stats are:

Weight: 13.15 pounds 
(We nursed before we left so we might as well call it 14+.)

Length/Height: 24 3/4 inches 

Head Circumference: 40 1/2 cm

I am loving my life as a mommy. I am exhausted and still looking forward to one day being able to sleep for more than 5 hours at a time (if I'm lucky.) I don't like cleaning poop out of clothing after diaper blowouts, but I've managed to clean up my poop covered daughter in public places with relative ease. We've made it through our first round of shots with no permanent damage even if we both shed tears. I have started back to work, just babysitting a couple of times a week and a few family and children's sittings as well as booking a couple of weddings for the summer. AND... I took my daughter on a 5 day road trip covering 5 states , nearly 24 hours in the car and a wedding. 

I'm pretty proud of myself!

Here are some pics of my stinkerbell!
