growth spurt

Helayna's growing. She's going through a major growth spurt. The last 5 days she's been eating like crazy. She hasn't been sleeping long periods at night any more. Last night was a tough night. She's hungry all the time it seems. I'm exhausted. I was getting used to the longer periods of sleep I was getting at night. Sigh. I suppose it's time though, she's almost 3 months old. She's cuter than ever too. She's talking so much now. It is so stinkin' adorable! She loves to suck on her hands (when she can get them into her mouth) and stare at herself in the mirror. The smiles melt my heart (still).
Jonathan has already won the husband-of-the-year award. He let me sleep until 11am this morning. He also got up at 6:30am and took her so I didn't have to. Every little bit of sleep helps and he's been so generous to me. He is such an awesome dad. I absolutely LOVE watching him play with Helayna.
We are so blessed.
This photo is for Sue. The dress fits her - isn't it cute?!?!?! She wore it to church last night. THANK YOU!

While the getting up through the night isn't that enjoyable, at least you know she's growing, healthy and strong. I love her sweet hair and cute cheeks. Give her a kiss from us. And, yeah, Jonathan for being so wonderful on the weekend, we even got a phone call. :)

Heather, she has got to be one of the cutest little girls ever, next to my own that is... :)

They will go through these phases and thankfully soon enough you should be getting some good rest. (I hope so for your sake any ways).

So wonderful for you that Jonathon is such an amazing husbnad and father. I love the little things the men in our lives do that just mean the world.

I have to add that you look great in this picture, too. I love your sweater. You look like you haven't even had a baby. Your such a beautiful woman and mother.

It must be so awesome to have your kids so close in age. I bet they'll be the best of friends.

I hope the growth spurt is fast so you can get some rest. J is so sweet to let you sleep in too.
