Three Months with Edith

I can't quite wrap my brain around it, but Edith is 3 months old already. We have learned oodles of new things about her in the past month. 

Edith has become quite the "helper" with her hands. She likes to try to help get herself dressed and latch on for nursing. She has also learned to pull her binky from her mouth. Now if she can only learn to put it back in we'll be in business. Hopefully that's next on her agenda. 

She has added the "guh" sound to her vocabulary. I say 'vocabulary' because she seems to actually have one. Edith very happily shouts 'hi!' when she sees someone approach. I guess that's what happens when a baby hears a word repeated by 6 other people multiple (and I mean multiple) times a day. She's the most popular kid on the block, that kid.

We managed to get Edith's head back to a normal shape. Constantly thinking about which way she's turning her head gets a bit tiring, but it seems we need to keep it up to help her head stay that way. 

I have noticed that Edith's hair has taken on a bit of a pink hue in the light. Ginger's hair had the same sort of pinkish highlights. Another redhead, perhaps?

We have a really ugly ceiling fan in the family room which seems to make Edith a little uncertain. It can make it a bit challenging to get a good photo of the girl. Don't worry, Edith, you're not the only one scared by it.

I even changed her position (and her outfit after a pooh blow-out) and still she was haunted by it.

Looks like one of those things we should be setting aside therapy money for.

And I don't know how Edith managed it, but she seems to have scraped up enough money to purchase herself a lovely toupee.

Gorgeous, don't you think?

Edith still loves her daddy the very best of all, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. But I'm okay with that. 

Happy 3 month, Edith!

Okay, I was seriously laughing out loud! All the pictures of her eying the fan, so funny. And I wasn't going to say anything about her toupee, but it is pretty sweet!

Sweet! I do love the ones of her looking at you there at the end, but I ALSO love the ceiling fan "inspired" ones--those are darling.

She's in good company with the toupee, since at least one of her cousins also sported one for a while, as well as at least one of her siblings. And I'm glad you got her in that heart top early, instead of following the size on the label. It has super-short sleeves! Did I tell you I found the pants that went with it, but ended up re-selling them because I just couldn't do that shade of pink? ;)

Yay for pictures of Edith! (I'm sure I don't remember her real name, nor do I remember the real names of your other kids so if we ever get to hang out in real life, I'm lost!) She's a doll! I wish I could snuggle those cheeks. It's amazing how babies take on a whole new allure when you're done having them and your baby is five.
