Ginevra @ Three Months: Miles of Smiles

Good Afternoon Humble Readers...

I cannot believe that our wee girl is three months old already.  Actually it was on Sunday, but then I'm in a bit of denial about it. 

My favourite part of every day with her is when she's just waking up, be it from a nap or first thing in the morning.  She might be fussing and hungry (particularly in the morning), but as soon as she sees me standing over her, her whole face lights up.  She smiles with her whole body, arms flung wide, legs and feet kicking for all they're worth, and eyes bigger than big. 

She's so big now.  I weighed her yesterday, and she's 13lb 4oz!  I had to go through her clothes again this week and  move a bunch of stuff out of her dresser and into the trunk in her closet, set aside for the possibility of Halfling 2.0.  She's almost too big for the 3 month things that she's been wearing for the last month and a half, and is well into the 3-6 month clothes. 

She sits up tall and holds her head up with very little help.  She sucks her thumb and bats her eyelashes at her Daddy and you can actually watch him melt. 

Her new favourite game is blowing bubbles... especially when I blow in her face, she blows her slobbery bubbles right back at me.  She wiggles and squirms, and can turn herself almost in a complete circle in her crib or playpen.  She likes when I sing to her, even if it's off key, and she does a great Stevie Wonder impression, swaying back and forth to the music. 

She loves her dolly and hates the car seat.  She has a dresser full of pink things, and looks best in yellow.

She sleeps in her crib at night now because she's outgrown the cradle, and that was a hard transition for Mommy.  She only breastfeeds once a day now, and that's not going to last long as my milk is almost non-existent. 

Ginny has a fickle schedule during the day, sleeping and eating whenever she has a mind to do either, and I'm okay with that.  In the evening, she falls asleep around 8 and we wake her up at 11ish for a diaper change and a small feeding.  Then she sleep through until 7 or 8 in the morning. 

She has so many names... sweet baby girl, angel, Bert, precious, puddin' and yes, even princess (much to my chagrin). 

We love her to bits and I can hardly imagine life without her. 

We are truly blessed. 


  1. OMG, I can't believe she is 3 months old already. What a beautiful little angel.

  2. What a gorgeous, gorgeous girl! Love the photos!

  3. Catching up...

    Ginerva is SOOOOO adorable! And I am LOVING the green (my fav color!) bedding...super cute as well! It was great reading about her antics and milestones. 3 months. Wow! :)

    Sorry to hear about your family issues. I can't say I blame you a bit for not going to visit your mom in the hospital...it sounds like she has not been supportive of you in the past.

    How frustrating to be reaching dead ends with the genealogy trail regarding your violin... I hope you find some new leads soon.

    Thanks for your kind words regarding my limerick. :)

  4. such a blessing! So glad life is good!

  5. So so beautiful..How is she already 3 months!? That is crazy..She is just lovely!!

  6. Lovely photographs there...her joy flows through.

    I could not help notice the green blanket in the last picture. Is it hand-knit? Did you make it? It's beautiful.

  7. I still can't get over all that hair! LJ didn't have hair like that until she was THREE!

    She's beautiful. A perfect little miracle!

  8. Aww! So sweet. Isn't the sleeping through the night wonderful? Ruby is right there with Ginny, although I wish that she'd start sleeping so early. Ruby is quite content to stay awake until midnight or so.

    Her hair is awesome!
