3 months old!

Welp I waited till 11:20pm to start writing this post. The babes is sleeping in her car seat and will probably wake up at any moment demanding to be feed and then we will go to bed. Today Little Emmaus is THREE months old! I can hardly believe it! She has grown so much and changed so much in such a short amount of time.
I remember those first few moments so well. I maybe teared up a little looking at those first pictures today. I cannot explain the amount of joy this little being has brought into our lives

Being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. And I know Dan would echo that claim.

Emmaus is such an easy baby! (TSC excluded-that is rough) She smiles, coo's and laughs. She has started playing some, batting at toys when laying on her play mat. She weights about 13.5lbs and is over 24inches long. She is nursing 6-7 times a day and takes about 5oz when she takes a bottle. I started back to work this month and Dan does wonderful with her at home on the nights I work. She sleeps pretty well at night usually we do our last feed around 11 and she will sleep till about 3, get up to eat and then go back to sleep until around 7:45am. She still sleeps a good amount during the day but she is awake for longer periods of times and likes to interact with us and play. She rarely cries and really only fusses when she is tired or hungry. (When she cries it sounds more like she is speaking in slavic than crying). She has great facial expressions and has a great scowl along with many versions of smiles. She is having anywhere from 3-10 seizures a day on average, but they don't seem to affect her overall alertness for the most part. Watching her seize is the hardest thing I do on a daily basis. Her head control is sometimes great, and sometimes poor. We work on it every day. We have started doing more tummy time to help her neck strength (she likes to protest during tummy time, but she eventually gives up and enjoys it or falls asleep). Rolling I think is probably a ways away for miss Emmaus. One step at a time.
We love you baby girl! We are so blessed to have you here with us. I can't imagine our lives without you. It has been a rough month but I would do it over again just to get to spend each day with you enjoying the coo's and smiles. You truly are a wonderful baby- you make us want to fill our home with babies. You are the best thing that has ever happened to us! I love you so much.

That's all for now,
Love, La
