Thumb Sucker!!!!!!!

Oh yea our prediction has come true. Liberty has never been a fan of pacifiers and we rarely have ever thought to give her one since she seems content 99% of the time. However, at nap time (IN HER CRIB! YEA!), when she is trying to fall asleep our little girl soothes herself with some good old fashion thumb sucking. She often has her hands/fingers in her mouth as babies do, but I was able to catch her first time really figuring out how to get her suck on...see 2 minute video below.

A Whale of a Good Time.

My mom and sister came to visit for a day. My mom wanted to decorate Liberty's bathroom so we set out to Target and tackled it that evening. The Whale/Fish theme turned out SO CUTE and Liberty loves going in there and seeing the colors now. I'm sure she'll love it for years to come - thanks Gma! Liberty also swam a little with cousin Charlie. It was a really fun visit.

3 months old!

Our sweet girl is 3 months old! She really does have a sweet personality. She also is pretty independent for a baby I think. She likes going for a stroller ride right before her bedtime feeding, and her new favorite things include always having her hands in her mouth and sitting up (assisted of course). God answered my prayers for a good sleeper. She has slept ALL the way through the night (8pm-8am) about 7 times. The rest of the nights she is still getting up for a snack once around 4am, but goes right back to bed until 7 or 8am so I cannot complain! She also takes two naps - both about 3 hours long which is crazy good I know. No tears. I hope this love of napping continues...probably since I'm blogging about it things will change:)

Goal for this month: to get her napping in her crib instead of her swing. She sleeps at night in the pack n play in our room so I know its possible. And maybe move her out to her nursery entirely??? :( I'll miss my little pal. Prediction for next month: I think we'll have a thumb sucker on our hands:)

4th of July Party!

We had such a fun swim/cookout Independence Day bash! It was our first 20+ people party at our house and we had such a good time. Three of Liberty's little friends came too - including Adalyn who is 1 month younger than Liberty. They were sporting the same festive outfit so we had to snap a few pictures of that! Our neighbors also managed to shoot off about 20 real, professional fireworks without Gilbert police showing up - which was an added bonus. Liberty was a social butterfly right up until about 7pm when she decided to take a cat nap in the middle of the party. 4th of July is my favorite holiday and I was so happy to be able to spend it with so many good friends.

Laughing with Daddy

The long holiday weekend meant lots of playtime with Daddy - to Liberty's DELIGHT! The pictures speak for themselves.
