I can't believe it.....Katie is 3 months old

Seems like just yesterday that Katie made her arrival in this world and now she is already 3 months old. The time just flies by too quickly. The second time around, you know how fast time is going to go and you are trying to cherish every moment. In some ironic twist of fate, it seems like there is less time to do everything you want to (I think it may have something to do with the fact that we also have Michael). We try to get as many pictures as we can and to capture the special moments in our memories.

Katie is getting bigger and even has a little chub on her legs and cheeks. It's so cute. She is less like a newborn every day. She is trying to move already. She can now scoot herself around on her back. We put her in her crib with her feet facing the end and when I came back in, they were facing the side! She is trying to roll over and swings her legs up to try to gain momentum. It's pretty funny to watch.

She is also very aware of her hands now and has learned how to clasp them together. She also likes to put as much of her hand as possible into her mouth and has started to suck her thumb. Michael also went through a phase when he did that. It's so adorable to watch....she definitely uses it for comfort. It's pretty funny too because she often keeps her fists clenched and she tries to find where she has hidden her thumb.

She loves to look at the world around her and follows people as they move. She enjoys the attention that she gets from her older brother Michael and he almost always makes her smile. If she doesn't smile, then she makes a face that says she knows what he is all about. I know he is going to teach her many things but I hope it's only the good ones!

Katie had her first opthalmologist appointment on June 8th. The doctor says that everything looks good so far but she is going to be nearsighted like her brother. So it looks like Katie will get glasses early like Michael. How much fun will that be to keep up with 2 kids in glasses?

I am looking forward to what the next month holds for Katie. She will have her 4 month well visit in July and I am anxious to see how much weight she has gained. Her head and neck keep getting stronger and I think she is going to be in the boppy and exersaucer by her 4 month appt!!

And what would this post be without some updated pictures of Katie?
