3 months old.

olive is 3 months old today.
this, my friends, is why i'm feeling overwhelmed.
i always do when my babies hit 3 months old.
it's because i feel like i hit a wall.  the lack of sleep has been going on for far too long.
not to mention i'm taking care of enough children to fill a daycare, only they all belong to me.

i'm sleepy.  exhausted, really.
i am lucky that olive is only getting up once during the night, but regardless, that doesn't mean i'm not tired.
when she was first born, i was so alert every time i had to get up with her at night.
now, i hear her crying...groggily get up to get her...try to nurse her...wonder why she's still crying and not eating...then realize that i'm trying to nurse a teddy bear and not olive.
word.
sleepy i tell ya.  sleepy.


enjoy a few outtakes of our 3 month old sesh.

here she is wondering why the hih-zell i woke her up for this:

and here she is watching daddy act a fool, trying to get her to smile:

oh, there ya go.  it worked for a millisecond:

not so funny anymore, daddy.  bored again:

here she is just being chubby.  probably thinking about milk:

and all that thinking of milk made her want to find a nipple:


i love my olive.







okay.  let's hope i don't try to nurse any more stuffed animals.
cause yah, that's awkward for all involved.  (you know, me and the stuffed animal)

  2. This post totally cracked me up. I love that you tried feeding a teddy bear. So hilarious. Reminded me of a time I got up with my little one when she was around the same age. I was holding her and bouncing her up and down and saying shhhh and she kept crying... when I finally became coherent I realized she was upside down!! Oops. Yep, lack of sleep will make you do funny things. She is perfectly adorable and chubby!! Love it.

  6. She is so adorable. I like her little sobber sides. I think her cheeks are too chubby for her to smile long, hah. Can't believe that she is 3 months. I wish I was there to watch the kids while you take a nap.....just a nap not any longer, he he.

  8. Oh Emily! I SO feel your pain.
    Our Ava Grace didn't sleep through the night until 18 months. 1-8 m-o-n-t-h-s.
    I thought I was going to die.
    She's absolutely precious your sweet Olive! xo

  14. These pics (and Olive) are just adorable. I totally remember that wall, and how all that adrenaline just drains right out of you after a bit. I was in that fuzzy haze way too long with my last baby, but I feel it lifting. I know you'll have your groove back in no time!

  17. my wall is 4months...which we are in right now, and oh girl. I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.

    Olive is adorable, I think she and my son Luke should have a chubby baby competition. She probably wins on the chin, but my boy rocks some large man boobs.

    Hmmm...in retrospect this comment got weird.

  31. P.S. I experienced the same emotions about Davy too turning 3 months! I was having a rough time around his 1st birthday & am still adjusting to the idea he is a "toddler". Gosh it went fast!! Iove your honesty on here! :)
