3 Months (a little late)

Miss Mya turned 3 months old about 2 weeks ago.  And I'm one bad mama for not getting this on here sooner.  Our little lady is one very busy little girl!  She is rolling over from her back to belly but hasn't figured out quite yet how to get back over.  She is a cooing and talking machine.  If you're willing to listen, she's willing to make noises at you.  We just love her more and more everyday and thank God for the blessing that she is!

This month Mya is:
-wearing size 2 diapers
-wearing size 3 month clothes
-finally taking a bottle! 
-smiling and cooing up a storm
-still thinking her big brother is the funniest thing she's ever seen
-rolling over back to belly
-and growing like a champ!

Here's a few pictures of our sweetie and one of her 3 month pictures my friend Tara (glory photography) took!  I'm picking up the others today!  :)

We love you Mya Paige!

Cherry on Top

Miss Mya was born with a hemangioma on her forehead.  A hemangioma is a cluster of blood vessels directly under the skin that does not move down. It was very light at birth and was hardly noticeable.  Over the past two months it has grown and become very dark.  This is not a concern and actually quite common.  Many children have them and they usually grow within the first year and then begins to shrink back down.  Usually by grade school years it is gone.  Although they are common most kids don't have it directly in the middle of their forehead.  While we think its kinda cute and makes Mya unique we realize that as she gets older her peers will become curious and want to know what the big red mark is.  I call it her "cherry on top" but its still hard to explain to young children.  Tomorrow we will visit Children's hospital and see a dermatologist there to see if anything needs to be done as a preventative measure to keep the hemangioma from growing too much.  So if you see our sweet girl and wonder what's on her forehead ... You now know! :). Here's Mya Paige and her "cherry on top".


So summer has come and gone and I'm left exhausted.  But that's ok because I have two beautiful kids to whom I can credit my exhaustion too.  If I wasn't chasing after Landon I was up at 2 am with Miss Mya.  Some how our sweet girl is almost three months old and that means Pat and I are headed back to work.  Pat officially starts tomorrow and I start Monday.  I'm sad that our everyday family days have come to an end but every new school year brings on new excitement and a fresh start.  I've been working my booty off in my classroom and its almost ready for my students.  I changed my whole room this year and I'm very excited about it.  Ill share pictures soon.  Summer just flew by and all I can say is "whoa"!   Here's a few recent pictures of L and M!
