This is the Life!!

What is better than this...chillaxin' in my swing with a full tummy and a clean bum???
Not much, I tell ya, not much!!
So Payton is 3 months old today. Wowza! We don't have a 3 month well baby visit...but we did have TWO doctor's visit and an ER visit last week due to her cold and fever so I think we've filled our quota for awhile!! But she's weighing in at 14 lbs 6 oz now. Not sure what her length is, they only weighed her at the illness appointments, so we'll have to wait for the full stats at her 4 month well baby visit.
Payton still doesn't really like to sleep anywhere other than next to a warm body (aka ME!!). We had a few nights of 7 - 7.5 hours in her car seat and I was starting to feel like a new woman getting all that sleep...but she was just teasin' me!! Even the car seat doesn't do the trick anymore. We're thinking of setting up the crib and moving her into Alexa's room next week but I'm a little nervous to have them share a room. I don't think I'm ready to be dealing with TWO kids up all night long. Alexa is a light sleeper and I know it's going to be a rough few nights until she gets used to having someone else in her room...someone else who doesn't sleep all night long like she does. Perhaps we can come up with a better solution but until then I'm dreading/anticipating moving Payton out of our room.
Despite the lack of sleep still...Payton is such a good baby. She loves to eat, sleep and poop...and BOY can the girl go through diapers!!! (Sorry love, I know you'll be embarrassed by that one day)!! And we're getting lots of smiles these days, along with a few grunts/giggles...she's trying soooo hard to laugh. She loves to blow raspberries and gets a kick out of when we do it back to her. Her hands are her favorite toy right now, they're constantly in her mouth. She loves her big sister and Alexa absolutely loves her. She has been such a big helper and she always wants to make sure "Taypon" is okay.
We love you Payton...happy 3 months baby girl!
