He's almost outgrown the hat...

I took Benjamin's 6 week photos in this cute owl hat, and being 3 months now I figured I'd better get a few last shots of him in it before he outgrows it! The kids and I were all hanging out by Jude's bed, doing laundry this afternoon, and the sunshine was pouring into the room, so I decided to embrace the moment and snap some photos of Benjamin in his cute hat. :)

Of course our sweet boy ended up peeing on Jude's bed right at this moment (sorry Jude!), so I had an extra load of laundry to then do, but it was worth it! :)

Life: 3 months with 3 kids...

Well world, I thought I'd check in and say hi. :) Since having Benjamin I know I haven't blogged much. It always takes me a few months to get my feet on the ground after having a baby. Plus, I just survived two weeks with that really bad virus that went around. Oh, it was awful. I'm not sure I've ever been that sick. I'm SO thankful to be well again! And so thankful Josh and the kids didn't get it. I hope you avoided it too!

Benjamin turned 3 months on Monday! Our cheeky-monkey is such a joyful boy. At his two month appt. he weighed 12 lbs. and was in the 50% for height and weight. He's been rolling over for awhile. Crazy, I know. He even rolled over for the doctor at his 2 month appt! He has a really strong neck and loves to strain it back and stare at the ceiling, so I think that contributed to early rolling from tummy to back.

Benjamin loves to coo, "talk" and smile. He's only just begun to giggle in the past couple days. He's sleeping well and I'm really thankful for that. Now that he's awake much more and not just a sleeping newborn, having 3 kids feels a little more crazy. I feel like we're a party wherever we go... or a bunch of noise, depending on how you want to look at it. :)

This time of year, every year, I dream of going on vacation. Any other Oregonians finding themselves looking at last minute vacation deals online? :) If only March through June could be 72 degree sunny weather! But I guess our springs are what makes our state so green and beautiful. So I shouldn't complain. Having some happy flowers on my table does wonders for me this time of year. I just had purple tulips, and now these. Ahhh, God's creation is beautiful!

And so is this sweet creation. :) I love this girl.

I'm looking forward to Easter coming up, and Jude & Selah's birthdays, then Josh and my wedding anniversary, then our birthdays, then 4th of July... and then sunshine/summer in Oregon!! Can I get an "Amen"?! :)
