what I would say to you:

Adalyn celebrated her 3-month birthday yesterday!

Only 9 more months of birthday planning!


Our sweet girl at 3 months

If Adalyn could speak (and understand) English, there are a few things I'd like to say to her at this time in her life...

  • The carseat? It isn't so bad. It isn't so scary. You're going to be in one for years to come, so you should start getting used to it now. There's really no need to scream your head off when I place you in your car seat.. promise!! Mommy would never torture you.
  • Your new "trick" of pinching and squeezing mommy with your fingers while I nurse you is not fun for me. I know you think it's neato to do, but it's not very cute!! It hurts me very much. I try to explain this to you every day, but I don't think you're getting the picture :)
  • Daddy is coming back to us in 5 months; just hold your horses!! I know you can't wait to see him. I certainly can't wait for us to be a family together again!
  • It would be really cool of you to sleep in your crib during naptime. Or sleep in your pack & play. Or swing. Or really anywhere other than mommy's arms :)
  • I love looking at your tonsils when you do those super wide-mouthed smiles at me. They are DELICIOUS!
  • Your new way of moving your head back & forth in the bed is causing your hair to wear off. Don't you want long, luscious locks of hair? Dontcha? Every morning I look at our bedsheet and find tons of Adalyn hair :)
  • Pacifiers are scrumptious. Wish you loved them!!
  • You look most precious, to me, when you stick out your bottom lip all pitiful-like :)
  • Morning snuggles in bed with you is my most favorite thing to do!
  • I can't nap without holding you; I love to do the "teddy bear hold" with you on the couch.
  • I call you my side-kick; you are my very best friend.


  1. Aww! i wish they understood, I say a lot of this to Elijah as well, esp the pinching while nursing.. ouch! I know the feeling!
    I love how you love her so much! She's such a sweetie. I also love your new pictures!

  2. How sweet! E STILL has a bald spot on the back of his head from doing that same thing, lol!

  3. I love reading about your baby Shannon! Glad you picked your blog back up! :)

  4. My Adalyn Reesie Cup may be a little high maintenance, but she is so darn cute! We just love her!
