Our little princess is 3 months old already! I know things won’t slow down (in fact, they will probably speed up)! This also marks the end of my maternity leave. I go back to work on Monday after Thanksgiving. So, this is also the end of a very well-defined piece of my life. More on the end of this chapter later.
Our other latest development is we think we have a thumbsucker! Since the day she was born, Viv has always been obsessed with her hands. She’s my only baby that refused a swaddle and was totally content with it. She’s always had her hands by her face. I’ve caught her with her thumb on occasion, but recently she’s made the connection with her thumb and her mouth and is so happy about it!
Viv is also really watching things. She loves sitting in her play seats or on the floor and following her toys. She coos and goos at them, kicks her legs, and has begun to try and hit them.
One last thing I have to make sure gets documented. We get so many compliments on Vivian’s beautiful blue eyes (and they ARE beautiful!) Both the boys were born with blue eyes. Walt’s turned brown pretty quickly, but Oscar’s took 9 months to change. There was a period of time when his eyes were green and I hoped they would stay! It is nearly impossible to tell from pics of the boys when they were infants that their eyes were that light. I am realizing you can’t really see Viv’s either. If someday they turn brown, I want to remember that she had pretty blue eyes at one time in her life.

We just love this little girl so much!
