Three Months!

Here we are: Three months!

3 Months!


Maggie seems to get more talented (she can grab things and stuff them in her mouth!) and social (she can engage BART passengers in staring contests!) every day. She is a fairly serious baby, normally quite observant and contemplative, but when she smiles, it is with her whole body!

3 Months!



Here she is in her three month tee and her deer/mushroom Big Butt Baby Pants. She is now in 3-6 month clothes, just in time for three months! (I think Joe was wearing 9-12 month sizes by this age. Our arms and backs thank the universe every day for our nice, average-sized Maggeroo.)

Big Butt Baby Pants.


We are adjusting pretty well to my return to work. My first day back, Maggie hardly drank anything from the bottle and didn't sleep much. When I got home, she had dark circles under her eyes. She latched on to the breast and stayed there for about two hours, just snoozing and nursing.

For his part, Joe brought me his Lego guy and told me "The boy misses his mama." When I suggested that the boy go find his mama and give her a hug, Joe said, "No, his mama is gone. He misses his mama."

Well, shoot, bring on the mother guilt, why don't you!

Thank goodness, the second day went quite a bit better. Maggie is taking the bottle a bit better, and seems happy and contented (but still happy to see me) when I get home. And last night, Joe and I built a Lego house, and he put the boy and his mama in it, so I think we're okay! Whew.

3 Months!


I love my kids. I have to work, and I really want them to be happy at home with their daddy, who loves them to bits. But I sure do miss them.

Look at those cheeks! Smoochy, smoochy.

  3. That smile is too much! You are such a great mom and an even better one for being honest with all us other moms. Mom guilt is the worst, but I'm pretty sure you'd feel pretty guilty if you couldn't buy food or pay the bills! I am so glad that things are smoothing out. Jude was a pretty serious baby, he would stare anyone and everyone down but only a select few got a smile out of the deal :). I love how their little personalities emerge so early!

  7. Aw! She is just adorable with that big grin! They are lucky to have a Mama who loves them enough to provide for them, and a Daddy they get to play with too! Hope it gets easier by the day.

  10. She has such a gorgeous smile. I hope you're finding a routine forming by now, it must be so hard on you but also make you appreciate the time you do have with your little ones even more.

  11. gorgeous and WOW what an all body smile! beautiful. Amazing how Lego can help kids express what's going on inside of them... and glad for you that Mom was let in the house! Our Lego gets piled over the baby, because he has to be introduced to the gazillion animals and people of course;-)
