Happy 3 Months!

Happy 3 Months Baby B (April 3, 2013)! You are growing and changing everyday and we just love it. Here are some of our favorite things about you:
  • Squealing. You have found your voice and it is the best. You are talking so much and have started to make the funniest noises and become a little louder. I sure do love all your talking.
  • Love having your bum patted. It calms you down and helps you fall asleep.
  • Love the football hold. When your stomach is upset or you're tired you just want to be held that way. You don't take pacifiers so we refer to this as your pacifier hold. It calms you almost automatically.
  • All about your hands. You can't stop sucking on them, staring at them, stretching them out, and grabbing things with them. 
  • Giggle. This has been the best thing ever. You laugh! I love it. Your dad and I are always trying new things to get you to laugh because it brings us so much joy. You even laugh for other people. It is the cutest thing ever and we will never stop trying.
  • Tummy. Tummy time is getting so much better now that I started giving you toys to look at while you lay there. You also love getting "raspberries" from us. They even make you laugh.
  • You are still an excellent sleeper and love bath time.
  • This past month you got diagnosed with acid reflux and got your first ultrasound to make sure everything was ok. The medicine is helping so much. You went from throwing up a ton during the week to usually only once. It makes going places a lot easier. I still over prepare and bring more outfits just incase. I never know when it's going to hit. The medicine makes you a lot happier as well.  
  • I started putting you in 6 months clothes. They don't fit really well but they are so cute. I went and bought you a whole fun summer wardrobe for 6 months and with the warmer weather I was too anxious to wait. 
  • You love your reflection. We have so much fun laughing and smiling in front of any mirror. 
This week was my last week at and I brought Brooklyn with me to wrap everything up for 3 days. She loved giving away her smiles and giggles and everyone commented on her long fingers and feet. She really does have the most feminine hands/fingers. Painting her finger nails is going to be fun. 

On to some pictures of my cute 3 month old:

  1. She just keeps getting more adorable (if that's even possible) :) So precious.

  2. So cute! I'm praying we get to see her and you guys during our super quick trip in a few weeks!

  3. I love that pose with her hand by her face! She is so wonderful, I can't wait to hear Thomas laugh and talk more. Congrats on the 3 month mark!

  4. She is so stinkin' cute! I love her big cheeks. :) Sounds like she is in a super fun stage!

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

UPDATE:  Hello Everyone! I have noticed that this post has been receiving a lot of traffic via pinterest and The Dating Divas Website. I wanted to welcome you all. I still do free printables for different seasons and holidays but no longer post them on my personal blog. We'd love it if you'd follow along on our design journey. You can find us on Facebook! I also post all of my free printables here. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your holiday season.
So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
