Baby Girl: 3 Months

This month, Brynn finally learned how to suck on a binki. Turns out she was just starving (I was at a Relief Society activity and she was home with Dad) but it was a start.
She looked super cute in overalls but hated wearing them.

 She got her first cold and spent many days like this
She met Santa many times
Ward Christmas party right after a huge blowout...she showed up in a much cuter outfit.
At the Stringham Polar Express
At Fotofly Santa
She wore many Christmas outfits
She fell asleep while playing

She went to her first Friend Christmas Party
and was not amused that she was not being put to sleep.
She read some books
She was pretty dang adorable

Happy 3 Months, Baby Girl!

Year of Tate: Day 347

We visited the Stringtown Polar Express today and it pretty much made Tate's life.
We even got to visit Santa's workshop and Tate told Santa that he wanted a "choo-choo."

Year of Tate: Day 345

We decorated the tree today and by "we" I mean Tate. We only got about 15 ornaments on the tree before I decided 2 year olds decorating is a bad idea but I let Tate do it. He only decorated the bottom three rows and he only did about a 3 foot wide section of those rows.

He's pouting because he didn't want his picture taken.
After he had decorated, he took some of the ornaments off to play with. During this time his dragons are kissing Winnie the Pooh goodnight.

Year of Tate: Day 332

This is how Tate becomes a Ninja Turtle.

Also, that hat is a baby size and fits him like a yarmulke but he insists on wearing it everywhere. A new beanie is definitely on his Christmas list.

Year of Tate: Day 302

Taking over Brynn's 1 month photo shoot.

Baby Girl: One Month

Baby Girl is one month! This month has flown by. It's hard to remember a time without Brynn in our lives.

Brynn is an eating machine. She was 5 pounds 10 ounces when she was born and 5 pounds 6 ounces when we left the hospital. By October 6 (one week after she was born) she was back up to her birth weight. At her two week appointment (the doctor hoped she would be back to birth weight by this appointment) she was 6 pounds 9 ounces and the doctor was very impressed. I'm not sure what she weighs now because Tate broke our scale but I'm guessing she's closing in on 8 pounds.

She is very alert and is awake much more than Tate was at this age.

Along with being an eating machine, she's a pooping champion. She is always pooping. Sometimes she even gets some distance with undiapered poops. Take it from me, poop shooting out of a baby's bum is both terrifying and hilarious. And gross.

being swaddled
being held tightly
having her back rubbed or patted

getting dressed 

Four days old and still so skinny
Newborn big on her
She wore preemie clothes for a few weeks
She made funny faces
But a lot of times she was awake and smiling

She really likes her hands up by her face
Same preemie outfit...2 weeks apart
Left is 3 weeks old, right is 1 week old

Happy 1 month birthday, Baby Girl!
