Silver Lining: those pokey outey ears (Claire at three months)

those pokey outey ears (Claire at three months)



About a week ago, my baby decided she no longer wanted to snuggle up 24/7 like she used to love. No no, she wants us to help her stand up or sit up at all times. I still don't know what happened to my little squeaky newborn who just wanted to nuzzle into our armpits and sleep. I mean, what's the point of putting on deodorant if no baby is smelling our armpits? It's about five years too soon to start exploring in my opinion, and I might be mad at her if she wasn't so darn cute looking around everywhere with her tiny little head and her big blue eyes.

And can you get over those ears that stick straight out (courtesy of her dad's genes ;)? I know ears that stick out are supposed to be some sort of beauty faux pas or whatever, but it just might be my favorite feature of hers. I can't get over those cute dumbo ears.

Happy three months, The Squishy One!


^^slightly out of focus, but way too cute to not post :)

90% of the time, you can find her with one finger jammed in her mouth. Yum.




Literally the happiest she's ever been during tummy time. Usually she screams nonstop.



P.S. Today I'm talking about insecurities and confidence over on Sharlee's blog. Check it out here!

    And Rhys has been doing the same thing. He tries to pull against his carseat straps to sit up, even doing little curlups on his back to try to sit up.

    1. I guess it's this age where they just want to be upright? So fun.

    1. We think so too, but we're definitely biased!

  3. Yeah..I remember when the nonstop cuddling stopped---I was in denial for a good while about it. I miss it terribly, still. But yes, it's so fun to watch them develop and grow, too. My daughter also has ears that STICK OUT--courtesy of MY genes and honestly, they're one of our favorite features as well. These pictures are just perfect...you can't help but smile when looking at them! :)

    1. I know, I love them. My friend was telling me how you can get your ears pinned back if they stick out too much, and I was like WHAT?? Why? I love them!

    1. We definitely think so, but we're a little biased. And by a little, I mean a lot.

    1. I agree! I have this theory that world problems would be solved if leaders could just hold each other's babies for a while hahaha

  7. Adorable!!

    I remember when Alexander didn't want to snuggle like he used to anymore, its a sad time as a mummy - bittersweet as there are so many things they want to get up to, learn and explore, but you're missing the newborn stage.

    1. I agree. I always knew this phase would come, but at only three months old?? I thought I had way longer before they didn't want to snuggle anymore!
