We started this week off with a family BBQ at my moms house. It was a lot of fun, and it was nice to see my sister. I feel like since I have gone back to work I hardly ever see anyone any more. Ash loved being outside and rocking with Nana...she got so comfy she let it all hang out. It cracked me up how far out her little Budda belly was sticking.
Mom bought a new water table for the kids, her justification being now there will be three kids who can enjoy it for years to come. She cracks me up. Jakob of course loved it. It was still a little cool out, but Mom promised he wouldn't get super wet. She forgot Tio was coming over....they ended up having to strip the boy down just to go in because he looked like a little drowned rat. He had so much fun though, and it certainly wasn't cold enough for him to be sick or anything. He didn't seem to care at all if he did feel cold!
I need to get a video of Jakob pretending to be the baby, but here's a picture. It's almost as funny as a video would be.
Another smiley Ash pic. She smiles so much these days, and squels with delight. I love it!
She turned three months old this week. I can't believe how fast time is going. I managed to snap this pic on Jeff's phone and I adore it. My stupid battery in my camera died though, so I only got this one and two others on her actual 3 month bday.
Yesterday I took her to Sears to get her official photos done. I forgot how much work it is to get good pics of a baby in a studio. We spent what seemed like forever just trying to get pics of her not crying! I think the ones of her turned out really great. I also did mommy and me pics and they sucked hardcore. I was so upset. I don't understand why its so hard to get a good picture of me with her...everyone else seems to get good pics with her all the time, but there are very few of the two of us. I asked my sister to come do a photo shoot later with us, so hopefully we will get some good ones then.
In milestone news, she rolled over twice this week, both of which seemed accidental and surprised her. Awesome. Even more awesome is that 4 of the last 5 nights, she has dropped her 3 am bottle and slept through the night. We are super excited!
