3 months with Willa

Sweet Willa-girl, you are officially 3 months old today and also exactly 13 weeks old!

You’ve had an exciting third month of life.


  • We got your crib set up!
  • You went to the Life and Science Museum in Durham (our fave) for the first time on a rainy veteran’s day with your cousins.  Aunt Jean gave you a bottle.
  • You started playing more on your playmat, you like it a lot and just this past week or so you started being able to grab toys hanging from it.

  • You had your first trip to the ER.  That was definitely a day of excitement, sorry it wasn’t the fun kind.  Your eye looks almost completely better now!  We’re so surprised and thankful!
  • You’ve taken a couple of naps in Mommy and Daddy’s bed (don’t tell Jackson and Maggie).  You get endless affection from them of course.
  • We’ve gone to the gym a few times.
  • You went on a girl’s night dinner with Mommy, Jean, and E to celebrate Lucy’s birthday!
  • Of course, we celebrated your first Thanksgiving at Meme and Gdad’s!
  • You got to go to the Christmas Tree farm and help pick out your first tree!  By the way, you LOVE looking at the tree.
  • You smile more and more everyday.  You’ve given us some chuckles.
  • You’ve gone to Womble park, brrr!
  • And the big news is that you have slept all night in your crib the last two nights!  I missed you so much the first night and was worried so I slept with the video monitor right by my face.  You are a champion sleeper, my girl, thank you.
  • Sometimes you’re fussy in the evenings and want to eat a lot but given how you sleep at night thats fine by me!
  • You like when we read you books.
  • I don’t think you like being out in the cold.
  • You’re crying more in the car, but you’re in there a lot.  Sorry.


Can’t wait to celebrate your first Christmas with you this month.  You bring us all so much joy.
