12 weeks already?

My little baby is 12 weeks old, which means it’s time for me to return to work. Nooooo! Has it really been 12 weeks already? Weeks go by so fast now – I feel like we just brought her home.

We are looking forward to Harper’s first Christmas. We’ve got the tree up and family will be coming to see us. The cats, as expected, have been enjoying wrestling under the tree, but (knock on wood) no broken ornaments yet.

Harper is spending more time awake and happy. She’s spending less time fussing in the evenings and more time just chilling on our laps. She loves baths…until it’s time to get out.

She also likes to suck on the palm of her hand while she plays with her hair with the other hand – silly girl.

She’s been sleeping through the night for the past month – from about 10pm to 5:30am. She’s getting good at putting herself to sleep if you lay her down when she’s drowsy. Yes, we thank our lucky stars!

Her favorite place to sleep is still in mommy or daddy’s arms – which is our favorite thing too. She likes it best when you hold her hand too.

She likes to repeat “goo goo” back and forth with us. You can tell she’s really trying to laugh – she’ll force out a little cough when she’s excited. And she loves to look at herself in the mirror – that’s our go-to activity when she’s fussy and it calms her right down.

Sometimes I’ll catch her smiling really big at the Christmas tree. And the other day I had “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on and she actually watched it and got really animated! I think that may become a Christmas tradition!
