wow! 3 months! officially a baby, not a newborn anymore :( In the last 3 months you have met tons of family and friends...been to lots of library programs and playdates (in Oklahoma & Texas!), been diagnosed with reflux (and now doing SO much better, mommy hardly ever has to give you your medicine anymore!)... received TONS of kisses from a certain big sister of yours...had your first little cold...spend longer then a baby should have to at an audiologist just to be told your can hear perfect!...you are now starting to fit in 3 month clothes! which i guess means your starting to pack on the pounds!...you finally started wearing cloth diapers...you moved to TEXAS(yeah thats a big one)....you have been swimming A LOT, that happens when you have a very busy sister and a super nice pool at your new house :)...you started giggling this week which is so beautiful to me....you rolled over from your back to your belly yesterday!...you still LOVE to be swaddled, and pretty much have to be swaddled to sleep in your co-sleeper...you only nurse when your hungry and want the paci when your tired... you start off great sleeping in your bed the first part of the night (which gives mommy a nice break) but pretty much ends up in our bed by your first waking...you have been on a small trip to our state Capital Austin...and already have had many hotel stays in your short life...you are much less *clear throat* high needs then your sissy...most of the time you are a pretty happy and content baby... your awake times are getting longer and longer....you LOVE watching your sissy play...

Part 2: Piper's bathroom/closet/bedroom
Yes people you are seeing things correctly....that is a BIG GIRL BED in her room!! Since Violets still in our room in the co-sleeper....we thought, that when we moved we would not even set the crib up...there for the big girl bed would be the Cool new thing in our Cool new house:) She has done AMAZING with it! It still takes 2 or 3 times of going in and laying her back down at night before she officially falls asleep...but MUCH better then i was expecting!

cloth diapers...ohhhh how I've missed thee! since within 10 weeks we were adding a 4 person to our family and moving to another state we decided that once Violet was born we would take a "cloth diaper vacation" until we got settled in Texas...then we would get Violet in cloth and Piper potty trained! well Friday we pulled out our diaper tub and put Violet in her first cloth:) they look so cute on her ;) I am so glad to be starting them! I was getting SUPER tired of buying diapers!!!!
next....the potty training adventure begins!!!! ANY ADVICE??!!

I grew up with dyslexia so to say the least reading wasn't too enjoyable....as I have gotten older I am learning to love a good book every now and then and especially am loving reading to Piper...so Jake and I are determined to raise a book worm! And since we were moving to Texas 5 days after her birthday to a small apartment....we thought this would be the perfect birthday to stock her(and Violets) library!!...
my little sweet pea is pretty much obsessed with cookies! so there was no question to the sweet of choice for her party!!
She kept saying..."hello?...bye bye. hello?....bye bye."
Piper reading to my cousins 2 little guys Titus & Javen
Violet finally woke up at the very end of the party! just in time for my cousin Rebekah to meet her.
Nothing like a good read!
Pretty good loot if I do say so myself!
