Scarlett Ann - SEVEN months

And just like that... SEVEN MONTHS! Wow!

I have been so busy with all three that I haven't blogged for a few months. I've got Scarlett all caught up, and my next blogs will be about the boys, and what we've been up to.

Seeing Scarlett grow is truly magical. Becoming a little girl before my eyes. Its going even faster this time around. Perhaps its also because we have 3 kiddos 5 and under? ha! Such a busy time in our life. I wouldn't change it for the world. Even though I'm up with her... I'm with her. I get snuggles, and I'm certainly taking it all in. She completes our family.

Sleep training isn't going. I just lay her down... and she goes to bed. BUT, then she wakes up two times in a night. Eventually, I'll get tired and sleep train properly. I just hate doing it. I'm hoping she will just do it on her own. Until then, I'm taking in our alone and quite late night moments.

She is growing leaps and bounds. Already wearing size 12 months. She's just as long as her brothers, but is lighter in weight. Eating 2x a day (solids), and still breastfeeding.

Scarlett is the cutest little girl I've ever seen... I know I'm partial... but, there it is.
 

Letter to my daughter

Scarlett Ann,

You are the most precious thing I have EVER laid eyes on. It has taken me up until now to really believe you are actually here. I used to look at you and stare. I couldn't believe I had a little girl. I have dreamed about you since the moment I found out that I was pregnant. I knew you were a girl from that moment. I just had that feeling. When I had my 13 week ultrasound the doctor said she was pretty confident in saying you were a girl. I rushed over to where your father was working to show him the ultrasound and tell him. He smiled from ear to ear. You are our little princess.
I had a dream about you while I was pregnant. My dream was that your daddy was rocking you to sleep, and laid you down in your crib. You were wrapped in a yellow blanket, had dark straight hair, and had dimples. It was a peaceful and sweet dream. And when you were born you had dark straight hair, dimples, and the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Your hair is getting lighter, and it's very similar to Jake's. You are a combination of both brothers.
When I first laid eyes on you I thought you were perfect. My daughter. That never gets old saying. Everyone in this house adores you. Your brothers wake up and come directly to you. Kisses and hugs every morning, and through out the day. Your daddy holds you so proud! And there aren't enough words to describe my love for you.
You are SO verbal. Lots of babbling. And so incredibly loud. You have a voice. You love your kisses and snuggles. It's my favorite thing we do. You lean in to receive hugs and kisses... and make the sweetest sounds. You have the sweetest little noises since the day you were born. I remember telling your father how much I loved hearing your little sounds.

Sassy. That is you. Full of spirit! I have a feeling your going to run circles around these boys. You go crawling towards them, and try and follow them through the house also. Your already cruising furniture, and moving throughout the house. It won't be long until your walking. That makes me nervous. You crawl off... you'll look back at me, and continue on. Independent little one.
Brady and Lexi (our dogs) love you so much. You love them as well. You show your love by laying on them, pulling up on them, and pulling their hair. They're so patient with you. They lick you and lay next to you. Brady is the best. With all our babies. He's so protective.

You have the biggest smile, cutest dimples, and a contagious laugh. I hope to teach you a love for God, strength, loyalty, and love. I want you to know that no matter what, I'll always love you and be here for you.
Thank you for entering to my life dear little one. I love and adore you.

You are my sunshine,
Mommy

Scarlett Ann - SIX months

Scarlett is 6 months
16.2 pounds (50%)
27 inches (90%)
Started crawling.
Started standing.
Sitting in high chairs at restaurants, and riding in the cart at Target and the grocery store. When she's not in the ergo with me.
 Sitting in a high chair at a restaurant. She sits in a high chair at home... but, this is a first at a restaurant.
Memorial Day... mommy love. She's such a mommy's girl. All things sweet... but, can be super sassy also. Love her so!
 First time in a cart also!
 Big brother Jake loving on her!
 Scarlett is OBSESSED with the doggies! Brady is used to the baby zone. This is his third and younger sibling. ;)
Lexi is OBSESSED with Scarlett too.
 Officially standing!
 Carrots, and fruit (pears, apples, and strawberries). All made by mommy. :)
 The boys creating a barrier. ha!
NO more pics mom!

Scarlett Ann - FIVE months

Scarlett Ann is 5 months
Trying to keep 3 kids all healthy at the same time during winter/spring is almost impossible. We have spent quite a bit of time there this season. This was for Asher's 4 year old appointment. I believe everyone was healthy here! ha! Look at Asher holding onto Scarlett. Sweet babies!
Daddy and his princess.
 Doing big girl things. Sitting!
 yummy toes
 My baby girl!
Teething is rough!
Bouncer fun!
 Scarlett and Ana.
 Her last time napping in the stroller. She's officially too big... and she generally won't lay down. Sad day. We gave it to friends expecting a baby this summer. :)

Scarlett Ann - FOUR months

Scarlett at 4 months:
13.4 pounds (50%)
25.5 inches (90%)




Brunching and walking with her friend Ana. Ana is exactly 2 months younger. Scarlett's first time in the "big" girl stroller.
Snacking and watching sister. I agree she's actually more entertaining than some TV shows. ha!
Scarlett had her shots, and Asher jumped up on the table to hold her. When she started to cry the boys were upset for her... rubbing her, and asking if she was ok. She is SO protected!
My world. Early morning huggies!
Trying rice cereal for the first time!
Peaceful girl in her crib napping.
St. Patricks Day beauty.

Scarlett Ann - THREE months

Little mama is three months old.

She's been growing leaps and bounds, and just all around a happy go lucky baby! However, she was hit with a cold. Asher and Jake had runny noses that went away within a week, but Scarlett got it and it started going into her chest. No matter how clean I keep my house (and I'm a neat freak), and no matter how separate I tried to keep them, it still happened. 

Within 2 weeks, Scarlett has been to the doctor 4 times! The beginning stages of RSV (although she wasn't tested for RSV), and the start of an ear infection. She got antibiotics on Monday, and our girl is coming back into good health. 

The doctor said this is one of the longest/scariest cold seasons to date. And she said it's been particularly worse for the babies born with winter season with older siblings.

UMMM. YEP! When I had Jake he wasn't exposed to anyone other than us. And Asher was born when Jake was 17 months old and he wasn't in preschool yet. So, both boys didn't get their first illnesses until they were closer to a year. But, I do remember Jake always got sick after or during our traveling. But, it wasn't from siblings.


Anyhow, we are well into her three months of life, and loving every second with her!

Here are her sticker pictures for three months. 
Here are some pictures from over the month. 
Waiting in the car for her brother to get out of school.
Bumbo sitter.
My pretty girl.
7 boy cousins... and then Scarlett. :)
Doctor appointments that broke my heart. Still such a strong, and happy baby.
She is no longer taking breathing treatments... Thank goodness!
Cheers to a healthier week for all!
