Early Christmas

Kaylee and I celebrated Christmas early with my family. She was the most wonderful baby to travel with ever!! We even got compliments from other people on the plane about how great she was.

She got to meet her Aunt Val, Uncle George, cousins Devin and Georgie, and Uncle Mike for the first time. And her Aunt Val introduced her to some great songs like 'good garbage' and 'recycle'. Kaylee hasn't stopped singing them!!

Kaylee's Aunt Val made her a few special presents. One was a santa hat, which she made for Kaylee's cousins as well:
And the other was a panda stuffed animal that Devin designed for her:
There were quite a few baby hogs at Grammy's house. The biggest two were her cousin Devin, who grabbed her every second she could:
And her Papa, who just loves holding sleeping babies:
She got special pajamas from her Grammy and Papa to open presents in, we call them her Kaylee Kane PJs:
She also met her first boyfriend, who tried kissing her on the lips a lot, I really don't think she old enough to have a long distance relationship:
She had a great trip and we can't wait to go back to Long Island again. We were left with one question that Kaylee will have to answer on her next trip, who is her favorite Aunt?

My little princess met Santa. She was very well behaved and just sat in his arms for a bit. Santa was really good, he even had a real beard!!

3 months. . . holy crap!!

How in the world did 3 months go so quick!! Granted those nights where she was up until 3am seemed like they went on forever, but hopefully those days are behind us. We were convinced for a while that the little princess was colicky around 8 weeks cause she would get to 9pm and start screaming her head off and then she was just a big ole ball of fuss until she finally went down, which was usually 2am or so. I finally decided to try sleep training stuff on her and she started sleeping through the night. I think she was just overly tired and it made her so fussy she didn't know what to do with herself. She's a completely different baby since she started sleeping at night. And now at 3 months she's even starting to nap regularly. Not that she has a certain time she goes down, but she does take 3 naps a day. The best part is she even lets me put her down for them now. She starts falling asleep and I put her in her crib and she takes a second to look around, realizes where she is, and conks out. She doesn't sleep long, but any sleep is better than no sleep! Those times that she'll have nothing to do with sleeping in her crib, she's always more than willing to sleep in her swing.

I used to think she was the spitting image of my niece, but she's becoming her own little person now. Here's a few of the latest picture of my big girl.

Now that she can hold her head up with no problem, the jumperoo has become the place to be.

She loves the swing, but she seems to have something against that poor lion, he always get the evil eye from her.

I made a hat, I'm not sure if she'll keep it or if it will go to a friend's baby. It sure it cute on her, but I've got tons of this yarn yet so even if it's gifted, my little princess will get one too!
