Happy Birthday

Time flies! The baby is three months old today.

Almost Three Months

She has different habits than most. Typically, she'll go to bed around midnight, get up once for sustenance and then sleep until almost noon. Once she gets up, however, she's up for almost the whole day. Oh, she'll take the occasional cat nap, especially if she's being held, and almost never if she isn't, or if, heaven forbid, you should dare to put her down if a miracle has transpired and she has fallen asleep in the arms of a loved one, like ...

Sleeping on Grampa

But she's awake for most the day and jabbers a lot, some of which is captured on the video clip below. She's a vocal one for sure. If she's not happy, she let's us and the neighbourhood know in no uncertain terms. Yes, she has a most powerful set of lungs. But she smiles a lot and has even begun to laugh. I heard one first-hand yesterday for the first time; it was about three syllables long. I wanted more and went through various ridiculous contortions to obtain one, but alas ...

So Happy Birthday, Little Smudge. You can celebrate with a wee dram of .... milk. Lucky you.

Very cute, although her sleeping schedule sounds a bit exhausting!

I thought I heard a grizzly nearby, a friendly one. He knew how to whistle, too. Honest.

Three months already that has sped by. A lovely little video she was really trying to tell a tale to her grandparents- she is so beautiful.

What a brilliant child; the perfect schedule!

3 months already--why, it was just yesterday she was born.
And if I feel that way, you must feel even more that time flies by.

Is there anything more precious that a grandchild... I think not. Hold on tight .. they grow up in the blink of any eye.
