Rachel turns 3 months

Rachel is such a wonderful addition to our family! Rachel has been up to lots of new things. She is much more aware and alert of her surroundings, she can hold her head up even better now, she is teething like crazy (no teeth yet) so everything is going into her mouth, she loves watching big brother play (especially when JP and daddy are playing), JP makes her smile all the time, she loves looking at her toys and is starting to grab at them, and Paul says she even laughed for the first time (although I didn't get to really hear it). She likes to suck her left thumb to sooth herself. Maybe this means she's a lefty! There's lefties on both sides of the family including me. But one of the biggest accomplishments she did this past month is roll over for the first time! She doesn't do it all the time but she has done it a few times. Here she is trying to roll over...




















She loves her daddy very much. You can see it in the way she looks at him. She just lights up when he's holding her. She loves being in daddy's arms and calms right down when he's holding her.

We are so proud of her and cannot wait to see what this next month will bring. She brings so much joy into our lives. We cannot imagine life without her. Here are some more pic's...
